TAG Heuer Aquaracer Special Carbon Series

Luxury Swiss watch brand TAG Heuer presents a special carbon series of their Aquaracer collection.

Ultra-light, hard-wearing and modern, this special series is led by the famous TAG HeuerMonaco Bamford, which has inspired a collection that will grow over the coming months. These special watches are available exclusively in boutiques and at the brand’s online store from the 3rd September.

The Carbon Aquaracer is available in three models, each standing out thanks to hints of blue, yellow or rose gold. The 41mm black PVD-covered titanium case houses the carbon bezel.

The dial boasts an imitation carbon effect. It’s therefore a watch that’s durable and solid, but above all, light. The full black look, subtly illuminated by hints of colour, lends the piece elegance and modernity.

Thanks to the random injection of carbon fibres into a resin pressed at high temperatures, each piece is unique, boasting an exclusive black and grey marbled motif.

Waterproof to 300m, the Aquaracer Carbon is the perfect watch for setting off in search of adventure while maintaining the stylish, sporty look that’s inseparable from TAG Heuer. The black textile strap has topstitching that echoes the colours of the dial.

Also available from the 3rd of September is the TAG HeuerMonaco Bamford, the first collaboration in the serial production of a watch for Bamford Watch Department. It’s a brand new interpretation of the iconic TAG HeuerMonaco, sporting a solid carbon case and an elegant full black dial that enhance the aqua blue chronometers.
