TAG Heuer - Aquaracer adopts a high profile

TAG Heuer Aquaracer adopts a high profile

As Official Watch of the World Surf League and the Big Wave Tour, TAG Heuer creates a new edition of the Aquaracer for men and women.

The patent for the first water-resistant watch was registered by Edouard Heuer in 1892. In 2003, TAG Heuer picked up this watertightness concept and took it up a notch by creating the Aquaracer collection, designed as a diver’s watch capable of withstanding extreme environmental conditions and remaining water-resistant to a depth of 300 meters. For this new 2016 edition, Aquaracer takes on a more powerful look with a broader 43mm case compared with the previous 41mm. The polished ceramic unidirectional rotating bezel has been revamped to give it a sportier, more distinctive aesthetic. Its twelve-sided shape punctuated by six studs is instantly recognizable – especially along with the luminescent markers on the indices and hands, in conjunction with its screw-down caseback engraved with a diving bell. The seconds hand is polished and tipped with colorful Super-LumiNova®. At the heart of this nautical timepiece beats an accurate and reliable mechanical self-winding movement : Caliber 5. This diver’s watch boasts one of the best quality-price ratios on the market.

In another new release for 2016, TAG Heuer is presenting for the first time an all-ceramic watch, introduced through three new models based on the famous Aquaracer design. Like the men’s model, the Aquaracer Lady 300M is water-resistant to 300 meters. Fitted with a 35mm case, it comes in polished black ceramic and pink gold, diamond-set black or white versions. It is powered by a quartz movement and features the same easily identifiable design as the Aquaracer for men : a unidirectional rotating bezel with 12 facets and six studs to facilitate handling. The rhodiumed or pink gold-plated indices are hand-applied with blue and green luminescent markers ensuring perfect visibility. In its most feminine and chic diamond-set black version, the bezel is adorned with 60 of these sparkling gemstones. Fitted with a black or ceramic bracelet secured by a folding clasp, the Aquaracer Lady 300M will appeal to women with a penchant for sport and for watchmaking expertise.
