Tag Heuer Aquaracer 43 mm Tortoise Shell Effect Special Edition

Tag Heuer has created two special summer edition automatic Aquaracer watches featuring a trendy tortoise shell pattern on the bezel. These models are perfectly suitable for the summertime activities, from the beach to the boat and beneath the waves.

The eye-catching tortoise shell effect on the bezel of these Aquaracer watches was created using an innovative resin technique, a first for Tag Heuer.

The dark and light blue hues of the blue version are reminiscent of the ocean’s surface, as seen from the deck of a yacht, an effect which is enhanced by the blue sunray brushed dial with horizontal dials.

The Aquaracer 43 mm Tortoise Shell Effect Special Edition is also available with a contemporary brown tortoise shell pattern on the bezel and a black sunray brushed dial with horizontal stripes.

In its functional side, the unidirectional diving bezel features a 60 minute scale. The dial hosts rhodium plated indices, hour, minute and seconds hands – all coated with white Super LumiNova for enhanced legibility in all lighting conditions. The dial also hosts an angled date window with a magnifying lens on its top.

Another first for the brand with these special edition models is the high-end rubber strap, which features an alligator leather pattern and a steel folding clasp with double safety push buttons.

The 43mm timepieces are fashioned from polished and fine brushed stainless steel and powered by the automatic Caliber 5. The stainless steel screw down caseback is engraved with the image of a vintage divers’ helmet and the water resistance of 300 meters/1000 feet.
