Tag Heuer Aquaracer Series – One for the Deeper Ends

The feeling of being underwater and exploring life beyond land cannot be put into words. There is no better way to disconnect from the daily hustle-bustle of our lives. Underwater diving or swimming is just as good as meditation – the silence of the sea calms down every single nerve in the body making one lose track of time. However, for more practical reasons, in this fast paced world where everything changes in seconds, we really can’t afford losing track of time. This is where watches like the Tag Heuer Aquaracer series feature in the life of a diver.

Launched in 1982, the Aquaracer collection is a tribute to TAG Heuer’s legacy in the world of fine watch making. This collection has been specially designed to withstand the rigorous sailing conditions making it an absolute must-have for all professional divers and underwater workers. Take a look at the Tag Heuer Aquaracer collection at Ethos Watch Boutiques, and you’ll be hypnotized by its timeless appeal.

Want to learn more about the piece? Read on…

The Aquaracer series was originally launched in 1982 as the Heuer 2000. While there have been quite a few Aquaracer versions since then, closest in execution to the original is the new 300m. With a few variations and modifications in the look, Tag has kept the basic design constant. This specifically stands true for the case shape and the trademark six studs on the rotating bezel.

Basis the dial design, the series has been further bifurcated into two – Calibre 5 & Quartz. While the Calibre 5 models have a horizontal streak pattern across the dials along with ‘Aquaracer’ written just below the Tag Heuer logo, the Quartz models have a 2-part dial.  It has a starburst centre dial (available only in blue dials) surrounded by outer patterning called ‘azurage’. Also, on the Quartz model, ‘Aquaracer’ sits right above the 6 o’clock hour-marker. Another feature that varies from Calibre 5 to Quartz is the hands. The Calibre 5 has a slightly thicker hour and minute hands along with a more elaborate sweeping second’s hand.

The Tag Heuer Aquaracer collection boasts of two strap options – the new-look rubber strap and the more commonly spotted H-link bracelet originally seen on the Grand Carrera but now found across the Carrera series.

Digging a little deeper into the Calibre 5 version, we found that all the watches in this series feature 6 signature studs on the unidirectional rotating bezel for an easy grip. Most of the timepieces come in fine brushed and polished stainless steel, while others feature an 18 carat yellow gold and red gold ring on the bezel and gold plating on the hour markers and indexes. They are presented in an “H-shaped” bracelet with a folding clasp at the end for a secure fit. The H-Link bracelet can also be found on the Gold models, although the alternating Gold links are now Gold capped. Also, all models share the same case size that is 40.5mm case. This is another element that has been changed marginally in comparison to the original Heuer 2000 – the case was 41mm in size.

So, in case the diver in you is really looking for a mental escape from the land of homosapiens while still being in touch with real time, timepieces from the Tag Heuer Aquaracer collection are the perfect pick!

  10. Hi Philip. Excellent write up, this. I have been a huge fan of Tag Heuer Aqua racer series. Underwater watches are such niche products that few people make them. This watch in blue color will do for. Shut up and take my money, Tag Heuer. The watch also looks so clean and elegant. Worth every penny for underwater enthusiasts.

  11. Hi Philip. Thanks for this informative article. I’ve been on the hunt for a premium and nice underwater watch and I think this will suffice after reading this. Underwater watches are such niche products that most people are unaware of. This watch in blue color looks incredible. On top of that, the brand of tag heuer is icing on the cake.
