Three new special edition TAG Heuer Aquaracer models sporting colourful new aesthetics heralds a fashionable beginning to summer. Available in sportive yet stylish olive-green khaki from bezel to strap and tortoiseshell patterns in blue and brown, the ocean-inspired heritage of TAG Heuer’s latest Aquaracer is eminently suitable for a life casual desk diving or literal diving.

Ready to accompany wearers during their favourite summertime activities, TAG Heuer’s latest Aquaracer collection introduces two firsts to the sporty series: a new Aquaracer 43mm Khaki Special Edition featuring a slick combination of sturdy fabric strap and sleek anthracite sunray brushed dial joins cool sophistication with a robust “militaristic” aesthetic of olive green aluminium bezel.

Showing casing a polished and fine-brushed steel case, the new 43mm Aquaracer Special Editions match performance with prestige via the La Chaux-de-Fond manufacture’s first use of distinguished tortoiseshell pattern. Inspired by the sunlight reflecting off the ocean waves, TAG Heuer created a magnificent tortoiseshell effect of the bezel using a high tech resin technique.

The dark and light blue hues reminiscent of the ocean’s tempestuous waves, plays up the ocean-adventure credentials of the latest Aquaracer 43mm Tortoise Shell Special Edition. Tortoise Shell Editions of the new TAG heuer Aquaracer are also available with a contemporary brown tortoiseshell bezel paired with black sunray brushed dial with horizontal stripes.

Form meets function, the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer Special Editions augment the functionality with 60 minute scale on the unidirectional bezel and an angled magnifying lens over the date window at 3 o’clock. The rhodium plated applied indexes and indicator hands are coated with white Super-LumiNova for enhanced legibility in underwater conditions as well. A new rubber strap like those found on high end sports luxury watches also accompanies the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer Special Editions, featuring an alligator leather pattern and a steel folding clasp with double safety push buttons.
