By TLex TAG Heuer have introduced the new 2015 AQUARACER 300M Ceramic collection in two sizes; 41 or 43mm. Directly inspired by the diving world, it has been designed for sailing, scuba, surfing and other professional watersports and is the official watch of the World Surf League & Big Wave Tour.
TAG actually held the patent for one of the first ever water-resistant cases for a pocket watch in 1895 as well as the World’s first Chronograph with a regatta dial and tide indicator which can once again be seen in the new 2015 Aquaracer 300m.
As a diving instrument, the new Aquaracer was developed to meet the extreme requirements of professional diver and is so endowed with a 300M water-resistant case, a unidirectional rotational bezel with 6 studs for enhanced grip, a screwdown crown and a ceramic dial with highly visible luminescent markers.
Here’s a look at some of the new features of the collection:
Newly designed bezel for a dynamic look. Six ergonomic studs to easily set it up, when wearing gloves. A screwdown crown for more security at depth
Unidirectional bezel to measure time limits or elapsed dive-time. An accidental movement of the bezel could only reduce the indicated time remaining, an essential safety factor for divers
High grade finishing on the case, bezel and bracelet An unscratchable dial with horizontal streak effects for an avant-garde look
Luminescent markers on indexes and hands for viewing in low light
Folding clasp with a double security lock to prevent any accidental opening and with a special diving extension
Water-resistant to 300 meters: strict testing, double gaskets and rigorous, manufacturing standards make of the new Aquaracer a highly reliable watch.
