TAG Heuer Aquaracer Goes Military

TIME TO GO CAMO. If you’re looking to add a nuance of military to your style, TAG Heuer’s new camouflage Aquaracer maybe for you.

TAG Heuer was one of the pioneers in waterproofed time pieces. Back in 1895, founder Edouard Heuer released the first pocket watch with a waterproof case. Then in 1939 came the first waterproof chronograph wrist watch. Through the years, many of TAG Heuer’s time pieces have proven themselves worthy in fulfilling the needs of water sport enthusiasts.

In 2002 the Swiss watchmaker presented the Aquagraph, a US Navy SEALS approved watch that was not only able to withstand the battering expected of military use, but also able to withstand underwater pressure of up to 50 atm. The following year TAG Heuer released the Aquaracer, offering everything that the Aquagraph did, only in a more attractive style.

The Aquaracer is now available in either a NATO inspired blue camouflage look or a khaki print. Both styles feature Tag Heuer’s automatic Calibre 5 movement with date in a 43mm sandblasted titanium case and a sapphire crystal with anti-reflection coating. The robust lightweight timepiece is water resistant up to 300 meters, and features a ceramic bezel with a minute track.

Military inspired look of the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer doesn’t only make it look tough, it is built tough to be the perfect addition to your look, however hostile the environment.
