The Aquaracer is back! Today, TAG Heuer’s go-anywhere luxury tool watch, loved by active, style-conscious watch lovers who push their limits, explore the seas and go beyond the edge, emerges with a bright new look, new materials and a new lease of life.
A robust, stylish classic for a new generation of explorers
The new-generation model is called the Aquaracer Professional 300. Bold and yet elegant, highly functional and yet versatile, it’s a highly robust watch with a luxury feel that goes beyond the edge and sets a new high-water mark: for ergonomic, extreme-performance mechanical watches. Designed for work and play, and to soak up nature’s harshest challenges, it’s a pure symbol of TAG Heuer’s fearless, avant-garde spirit.
With its striking, instantly recognisable aesthetic, epitomised by the Aquaracer’s signature 12 faceted bezel, and its high specifications, it’s entirely contemporary, and yet it recalls a legacy that TAG Heuer began more than 40 years ago.
That legacy began with the Heuer Ref. 844, a divers’ watch released in 1978. It had a memorable dial design with a red 24-hour scale, prominent lume-filled hour markers and a rotating divers’ bezel with a crystal-clear minutes scale for safely timing dives. It set the standard for reliable diver’s watches and was adopted by professional and recreational divers all over the world. In the four decades since the watch was launched, TAG Heuer has continued to push the limits of divers’ watch design and performance, through celebrated pieces such as the Night Diver and the 1000 and 2000 Series models, while the Ref. 844 has become a collectors’ favourite.
Frédéric Arnault, TAG Heuer CEO, said: “TAG Heuer has been making bold, high-performance, stylish, luxury tool watches for more than four decades. The Aquaracer Professional 300 picks up a much-loved story and moves it on with the most significant step we’ve taken to develop our Aquaracer collection in many years. Pushing the limits, high functionality, a bold and unmistakable aesthetic, and the promise of going with you, even to the extremes – the Aquaracer Professional 300 is a watch that will take you beyond the edge. This is, after all, the place where we truly find ourselves.”
