It’s the ultimate sports watch inspired by the aquatic world. The TAG Heuer Aquaracer was launched in 2005 as the successor to the Tag Heuer 2000 dive watch series, and the essence of the line has been one of exploration and daring.
The brand has now announced three new 35mm Aquaracer models, and the most eye-catching aspect is the splash of blue. The blue dial has a reflective sunray effect and engraved sand-wave pattern reminiscent of the gentle waves lapping on the sandy shores of a tropical beach. The stainless-steel models with a blue dial are presented on a stainless-steel bracelet or rubber strap in the same shade of blue.
The cross-hatched pattern on the strap mimics the texture of sailing ropes, a touch that highlights its seafaring pedigree. The rubber strap is ideal for water sports because it is durable, comfortable, lightweight and waterproof. The third model in the collection has an elegant mother-of-pearl dial and is also presented on a blue rubber strap. A date window at 3 o’clock is found on the dial of all three models.
Each one of these timepieces have the six standard features of any Aquaracer wristwatch, including a unidirectional rotating bezel, sapphire crystal, screw-down crown, water resistance to 300 m (30 bar), luminescent hands and markers, and a double security clasp on the bracelet or strap.
