Introducing the TAG Heuer Aquaracer 300m Calibre 5
The Aquaracer first appeared in 2003 and has made its mark on the TAG Heuer collections. Its chunky case sculpted for underwater exploration has gone from 41mm to 43mm and its striped dial comes in blue or black.
The self-winding Calibre 5 has been chosen to bring the Aquaracer 300m Calibre 5 to life. It powers the time and date functions, provides a 38-hour power reserve and is housed in the steel case that’s waterproof to depths of 300m. The silver lacquer diving scale is engraved on the blue or black ceramic dodecagonal rotating bezel with 12 facets.
The horizontal stripes on the dial set the scene for luminescent indices and a minute track printed near the chapter ring. Two wide hands track the hours and minutes whilst a central seconds hand with a yellow rectangular tip glides over the seconds. The magnifying glass in the sapphire crystal makes it easy to read the date at 3.
