Launched in 2004, the Aquaracer series has developed into one of TAG Heuer’s most popular, and for good reason. These watches offer sporty looks and professional dive watch features at an accessible price.
As you may have discerned from its name, this TAG Heuer Aquaracer can descend to 300 meters, or nearly 1,000 feet below the surface, which is sufficient for even the most ardent underwater sportsman. Divers also appreciate the unidirectional countdown bezel; large, luminous hands and markers for excellent legibility under all conditions; the oversize, screw-down crown with double gaskets to keep what’s outside from getting inside; and a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with nonreflective treatment. The bracelet features a double-security clasp to assure the Aquaracer stays put. The 41-mm diameter case falls into the “just right” range. The Swiss-made Caliber 5 automatic movement operates at 28,800 vph or 4 Hz with a 38-hour power reserve.
The TAG Heuer Aquaracer 300m retails for $2,600.
