TAG Heuer Just Perfected Its Greatest Ever Dive Watch

First introduced in 2003, TAG Heuer’s Aquaracer continues to redefine our standards of the modern dive watch. Equal parts functional and luxurious, it stays the course through an epic host of environments and looks downright stunning in the process. This is a benchmark timepiece that goes big on versatility while paying subtle tribute to the brand’s groundbreaking heritage. With the latest iterations comes a consistent and distinctive design identity and improved ergonomics, meaning an already great thing has somehow managed to become even greater.

To highlight the TAG Heuer Aquaracer as the ultimate luxury tool watch, TAG Heuer has launched a global “Beyond the Edge” campaign. It touches down on a variety of outdoor adventures—from cliff diving to surfing—by way of brilliant photography. Affixed to the wrist of each thrill-seeker is the watch itself, which often manages to steal the show. Indeed, this sporty work of art is an absolute eye-grabber and that’s not to mention its rugged qualities.

Available in a variety of iterations (some of which are quite limited in supply), the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer features a thinner case than its distinguished predecessors. Thanks to shorter lugs, the case measures 43mm in size and delivers improved ergonomics and sensoriality alike. The bezel grip and turning noise have been likewise improved and so too have specific details like the polished chamfer, integration case-bracelet, and reworked dial, so as to catch light with better efficiency. An integrated magnifying lens reminds us that this is indeed a tool watch while high-end finishes and materials reinforce the luxury vibe.

Powered by a Calibre 5 Automatic movement, the TAG Heuer Aquaracer is water-resistant to 300m and designed to be reliable in all conditions. In addition to the specs mentioned above, it features an all-ceramic bezel inlay, fine-adjustment buckle, pressure-proof and scratch-resistant titanium case, Super-Luminova markers, and oriented caseback, amongst other things. TAG Heuer also included six original features that have remained iconic since they were first introduced on the brand’s 1983 dive watches.

From the enhanced reliability to the improved ergonomics to the luxury aesthetic to the heritage underpinnings, the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer is a genuine force to be reckoned with it. Choose between a variety of models, each one offering its own bold fusion of style, clarity, and performance. If only the most unique variant will suffice, look no further than the TAG Heuer Aquaracer X Bamford, which was co-designed with the Bamford Watch Department. Spreading baton indices against a black spiral-like dial face, this limited-edition stunner is guaranteed to turn heads and that’s before we get to its sheer technical prowess.

With the latest collection, a brilliant dive watch becomes sharper, stronger, leaner, and more comfortable. As evidenced by the “Beyond the Edge” campaign, this piece is ready for all the action you can throw its way. Take it cliff-diving or surfing or snorkeling or whatever you fancy and expect nothing but premium performance with no shortage of style. Change your outfit but keep the wristwear intact as you head out for the night, whereas the watch looks no less impressive at the hottest restaurant or nightclub.

True to form, TAG Heuer proves itself one of the most versatile names in the game, combining luxury and sport as only they can. Equip yourself with the latest TAG Heuer Aquaracer and wear it through a swath of epic adventures. Here’s to the life worth living.
