All About TAG Heuer Aquaracer Watches
The TAG Heuer Aquaracer is one of the most iconic TAG Heuer watch collections. It offers a wide range of water sports and diver watches. The TAG Heuer Aquaracer collection takes inspiration from the classic Heuer diver watch, the Heuer 2000 of 1982.
The Aquaracer name was firstly introduced in 2004 under the TAG Heuer 2000 series as the “2000 Aquaracer” model. Seeing the success of those watches, TAG Heuer renamed the 2000 collection to “Aquaracer” in 2005, and it remains the mainstay collection for the brand to the present day.
Descending from a legacy of 150 years, the TAG Heuer Aquaracer collection has been exclusively designed to meet the high demands of divers over the world. It perfectly balances the functionalities and sportiness with style. The Aquaracer series offers a wide range of automatic and quartz watches to cater different needs.
When it comes to the history of the Aquaracer, we can trace its history back to the Heuer 2000 collection launched in 1982. The popularity gained by this series paved the way for today’s TAG Heuer Aquaracer range.
In 2004 TAG Heuer introduced a new model for the 2000 series called the 2000 Aquaracer. It offered 2 options: a 38 mm quartz-powered model or a 41mm steel automatic model. Both two variations of the 2000 Aquaracer rated 300m depth of water resistance. They used circular lume-filled hour-markers instead of the rectangular-shaped markers that other 2000 models used. The new model also featured a coloured aluminum bezel.
Because of the success of that first 2000 Aquaracer, TAG Heuer relaunched the entire 2000 range with the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer name in 2005.
It’s clear to see the heritage of the Heuer 2000 in the TAG Aquaracer’s structure. The Aquaracer watches always feature a simple, robust case and a highly legible dial with a date display window at 3 o’clock position. It is equipped with a distinctive unidirectional bezel styled with six ergonomic studs. It is to increase the grip for divers when they are wearing diving gloves. The sporty and rugged diver watch is water-resistant to 300m depth.
