Fans of TAG Heuer have had plenty of new offerings to marvel over in the first quarter of this year, but it seems the iconic Swiss brand are far from finished. We’ve already seen new Carrera’s released at LVMH Watch Week in Miami, a funky collaboration with Malbon Golf, exclusive novelties unveiled for Watches and Wonders in Geneva, as well as the return of the F1 series, a colourful fan favourite to say the least. Now though, it seems June marks the turn of the Aquaracer.  

The Aquaracer was originally introduced in 2004 with roots going back to Heuer’s first diving watches in the 1980’s, they have now been updated with Date and GMT models that offer new dials, cases, and movements. The modernised iterations in the Aquaracer collection are a symbol of TAG Heuer’s adventurous DNA, as well as Jack Heuer’s rich heritage as the visionary at the helm of the company.

Sculpted for those who defy depths and time zones…

Comprised of eight references, four of which with unidirectional rotating bezel and newly offered date function, and the other four with bidirectional rotating bezel and new GMT function, the Aquaracer offers durability and enhanced performance with a professional water resistance rating of 300m. Readability is ensured at any depth thanks to luminescent pointers and each variant is offered with screw-down crown and double safety clasp, making them the perfect companion for explorers of land and sea.

Brimming with elegance despite their robust functionality, the newly refreshed Aquaracer models honour their legacy with a contemporary design that has evolved to fit the diver of today as they face life’s endeavours both in and out of water. Designed to ensure smooth handling, the new designs focus on easy readability with an updated minute track and more prominent hour hand that now displays the shield shape for legibility at a glance. The second hand and wave pattern of the dial, as well as the caseback with its diving helmet engraving, perfectly captures the essence of deep-sea exploration.

The GMT references are versatile and robust models designed for use by the modern explorer, ready to be guided through oceans and across time zones. The two tone-bezel is presented in scratch-resistant ceramic and displays a 24-hour GMT scale to distinguish between night and day at a glance. The GMT hand is lacquer finished and appears in blue or green with luminous tip for added functionality and style. The GMT references are equipped with the COSC-Certified manufacture TH31-03.

The Aquaracer Date models appear with striking sunray brushed dials complete with wavy pattern and are equipped with the COSC-Certified manufacture TH31-00. The rhodium-plated applied octagonal indexes and hour and minute hands have been treated with white Super-LumiNova. The central hand appears in light blue or striking orange and has also been generously treated with Super-Luminova for enhanced readability.

The new iterations see the case proportions reworked to a smaller 42mm diameter in the name of ergonomics and increased comfort, with an added 0.5mm thickness to improve the case’s balance. Models are available in black, blue, and green to reflect the hues of the depths below, each one offers an impressive 80-hour power reserve, as well as chronometer-level precision.
