TAG Heuer Aquracer EMERALD

The Emerald City, the Emerald Isle, an emerald Aquaracer?

Inspired by the tranquil blue and green shades of the ocean, TAG has created two new green-dialled Aquaracer models.



Available to purchase individually or together as couple’s watches – you know to go with your matching t-shirts;

these new emerald green variants offer all the same design and functional elements as any other Aquracer – only with their new trendy green faces.



It is true to say that green as a dial color has had a bit of resurgence as of late;

I myself am partial to a bit of green but this particular shade (as radiant as it is) might be a little too bright – what do you think; a shade or two darker or is it perfect?



The larger 43mm Aquaracer dazzles with a stunning green dial with a sunray effect.

Horizontal lines running across its dial are supposed to resemble those of a wooden dock where sailboats are moored.



There’s a date window at 3 o’clock while the numerals on the bezel are filled with black lacquer, as is the triangle marker at 12 o’clock.



The smaller 32mm model features the same emerald sunray green dial, but, instead of horizontal lines, is decorated with diamond hour markers.

Once again there’s a date window at 3 o’clock while a triangle marker at 12 o’clock on the bezel provides reading of dive-time.



Both watches are built from Stainless steel and are presented on matching Stainless-steel bracelets.

Beating inside the 43mm model is the Caliber 5 automatic movement, while the 32mm model is powered by a lesser quartz caliber.



Both sizes are equipped with the six standard diver’s features that can be found on any Aquaracer:

water-resistance to 300m, a unidirectional rotational diver’s bezel, a screw-down crown and case-back, luminescent hands and markers, a double security clasp, and a Sapphire crystal.



Thoughts? Very nice but these are more grass, neigh seaweed green than I care for - no sign of the green eyed monster, here ;)
