Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer continues its 50-year celebrations with the release of two stunning new variants of its famous ocean-inspired Aquaracer sports watch.
The classic water-resistant timepiece in a 43 mm diameter (for men) and 32 mm diameter (for women) has been given the once over with this sleek and eye-catching emerald dial.
The gents’ version sports horizontal lines on the watch face (a nod to wooden boat docks) and rhodium-plated indexes and hands. Powered by TAG’s in-house Calibre 5 movement; the date, hours, minutes and seconds are all visible, with this eye-catching green gem also boasting a 38 hour power reserve.
The ladies version is much smaller and is powered by a Swiss-made quartz movement with a less cluttered dial that utilises 11 diamonds as the hour markers. Another difference that sets it apart from the gents’ model is the absence of black lacquer in the bezel numerals.
Both watches are water-resistant up to 300 metres, have a unidirectional rotating bezel, a screw-down crown, luminescent hands and markers, a double secure clasp and use sapphire crystal. The date window is located at the 3 o’clock position with the stainless steel wrist strap adding a touch of class to this sophisticated sports watch.
The Aquaracer will be available from tagheuer.com soon, with the men’s model retailing for US$2250 (we’ll update this article when we receive local pricing details shortly).
