La Chaux-de-Fonds-based manufacturer, TAG Heuer are immensely proud of their prestigious Aquaracer collection, which delivers both a professional diver’s watch - some with the added benefit of a chronograph facility. The latter of which are powered by the powerful Caliber 16, which is often seen in models of the Carrera variety. The TAG Heuer Aquaracer is a fine representation of the brand’s meticulous skill and expert capability at blending cutting edge technology with an ultra-stylish aesthetic. The result is an elegant sports dress watch that promises precision and the durability to withstand any imaginable challenge.
TAG Heuer Aquaracer watches feature a 60 minute bezel and staggering water resistant capabilities of 300 meters to 500 meters, depending on the model. TAG Heuer put great emphasis on the Aquaracer series as an instrument that provides the diver with a legible display, allowing he or she to be able to pull information from its dial instantly and effortlessly. The hands and indices of the dials have been treated with a luminous coating and date apertures are often presented underneath magnifying lenses to enhance visibility. The instruments are fine choices for all thrill seekers and those who can appreciate the rigorous tests undergone to determine the strength and stamina required to fulfil such a role.
TAG Heuer Aquaracer watches for men undeniably impress with their rugged ceramic dials and broad dimensions, yet the lady’s series delivers the same incredibly precise calibres and quartz movements, whilst housed inside luxurious and highly glamorous aesthetics. Some of the lady’s versions feature titanium carbide coated carbide bezels that have been loaded with top Wesselton 0.10ct diamonds - others adopt a slightly more tom-boyish style with eye-catching tachymeter scales and unique 12-sided shaped case constructions. Whether it be a contemporary white ceramic case with matching bracelet, or a stealthy black aesthetic with striking rose gold PVD bezel – the Aquaracer collection caters for all desires, and every occasion.
The 12-sided bezel designs of TAG Heuer Aquaracer watches, feature a unidirectional rotating bezel preventing the wearer from accidentally increasing their diving time. At the start of the dive the zero marker is synchronised with the minute hand. The diver is then able to clearly see how long they have been under the water for, thanks to TAG Heuer’s skill in providing crisp, highly readable information. The cases of the TAG Heuer Aquaracer watches, whether fine brushed, polished or satinised are incredibly robust, lightweight and scratch-resistant – features that are mimicked in their sapphire crystal glass fronts, which act as protective canopies across the surface of each dial.
The Caliber 16 which powers the chronograph members of the TAG Heuer Aquaracer collection, is one of the most widely used and most reliable of movements within Swiss watch manufacture. The movement is capable of producing a 42 hour power reserve and features a balance wheel that vibrates at a frequency 28,000 per hour. The movement also allows the wearer to measure time to 1/8th of a second.
The TAG Heuer Aquaracer watches which are most certainly a celebration of the brand’s design and performance, are also symbolic of the brand’s drive for ultimate perfection at all times, teamed with prestigious style.
