Tag Heuer’s Aquaracer is re-invented as the Carbon Aquaracer
Going in deep
If you're planning any sort of dive expedition, you'll want to make sure you're equipped with one of the best dive watches when you're making your watery descent. The yardstick to go by? 300-metre water resistance, uni-directional rotating bezel, top-notch legibility, an operation indicator, and anti-shock protection. At least.
To that end, Tag Heuer has launched a modern incarnation of its famed Aquaracer that upgrades the diving watch with all of the above-mentioned capabilities plus a new lightweight advantage. Meet the Aquaracer Carbon, developed based on said substance to boast a durability and ruggedness that belies its weightless nature. But on top of withstanding oceanic pressure like a champ, this re-invented icon truly makes carbon its own by playing up the Aquaracer's sporty style codes with the material.
From the outward in, you've got a 41mm diametre case cut from grade 5 titanium, a bezel crafted using a combination of carbon and PVD-coated steel, and then a dial (aka the main event) entirely carved from carbon. Looking like a slate of black marble thanks to an injection of carbon fibres into a resin at high temperatures — with each watch being singularly unique due to random distribution — the dials glow lightly in either blue, yellow or rose gold SuperLuminova. Meant to imitate the depths of the ocean, the Carbon Aquaracer is finished with a comfortable yet hardy nylon strap in stitching colour-coded to its dial. And if you're wondering where you can score a piece of this stylish diving gear for yourself, this is an exclusive drop limited to Tag Heuer online and its boutiques.
