Aquaracer. The quintessential sports watch inspired by the lure of the deep. 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 (the collection created by TAG Heuer in 2003) has continued to evolve, developing into the perfect timepiece for all kinds of extreme conditions, not just diving and other seafaring activities.
Robust and water-resistant to 300 metres, this watch — featuring a uni-directional rotary bezel, with its twelve sides and six studs, screw-down crown, large luminous indications on the indexes and hands for improved visibility when diving and screw-down case back engraved with a diver's helmet — is immediately recognisable.
For the 2017 edition, the Aquaracer keeps its key characteristics while becoming more accessible with an aluminium bezel (instead of ceramic for the 2016 edition) and a quartz movement to meet strong market demand. The high quality of the Aquaracer's finishes and functions yet again make it one of the best value timepieces on the market.
