In deep ocean blue, or intense black for a more timeless watch, the new steel Aquaracer models are unflinchingly sporty and elegant, for the active modern woman. A natural mother-of-pearl dial in blue or black, finished with a ceramic bezel and a tone-on-tone strap with a satin finish. Ever the pioneer, in 1892, Edouard Heuer filed the first patent for a watertight case in the history of watchmaking. It was an immediate success. Since that time, the Aquaracer (a collection created in 2003) has continued to evolve, becoming a sports watch beloved by men and women in equal measure. While available in various sizes and materials, the ceramic models in particular were a huge success last year.
This year, TAG Heuer is releasing a brand new version for women, in steel with a natural mother-of-pearl dial in a semi-transparent blue or black lacquer (a first for TAG Heuer), finished with a ceramic bezel and a tone-on-tone rubber strap with a satin finish. In an elegant 35 mm size and water-resistant to 300 metres, this sports-inspired watch clearly draws on the collection’s iconic design with a 12-sided uni-directional rotating bezel featuring 6 polished catches and presented here in ceramic, an ideal material that offers unequalled scratch resistance. Finally, for a touch of glamour, the dial is set with 11 diamonds with settings and the bezel can be set with 35 diamonds for a total weight of 0.59 carats. A completely steel strap is also available for sports enthusiasts, with links alternating between their brushed outer and polished centre. Also available with a steel bracelet to highlight its sporty style, and with a diamond-set bezel for a touch of glamour.
