New: TAG Heuer Aquaracer: Carbon replaces ceramic in 3 colours

by Deployant News Team on September 7, 2018

TAG Heuer announces three Aquaracer models, will be available now, exclusively in boutiques and at www.tagheuer.com.

 

 

The new announcements are modern take on the famous Aquaracer, TAG Heuer’s ultimate dive watch. The Carbon Aquaracer is available in 3 colours – each characterised by hints of blue, yellow or rose gold.

 

Lens Position: 3458

 

The case is 41mm black PVD-covered titanium case with a carbon bezel. The dial has an imitation carbon effect. Carbon fibres are injected randomly into a resin to cure at high temperatures, resulting in each piece looking unique, with an rather interesting black and grey marbled motif. The full black body is subtly illuminated by hints of colour. A look which TAG says is reminiscent of the depths of the oceans.

 

 

The watch is claimed to be very durable and solid, and very light. The water resistance rating is 300m.

 

 

The strap is in black textile strap whose topstitching echoes the colours of the dial.
