Tag Heuer Aquaracer Bamford Limited Edition

TAG Heuer and Bamford Watch Department have partnered for the second time to design a special, limited-edition timepiece. The Aquaracer Bamford Limited Edition is a reliable, professional tool watch made with eye-catching titanium and featuring bold orange details. This timepiece is a new and exciting expression of how TAG Heuer and Bamford Watch Department are perfectly suited in their approach to design.

In 2018, TAG Heuer and George Bamford came together to create a special version of the Monaco timepiece, which was met with international acclaim. This highly anticipated second collaboration blends Bamford Watch Department’s talent for twisting design codes with the spirit of reimagination and TAG Heuer’s bold heritage. Equipped with the Calibre 5 Automatic movement, this exclusive Aquaracer timepiece is limited to 1,500 pieces.

Bamford Watch Department’s instantly recognisable style is evident in the piece’s elegant black dial, which bears the Bamford name at 6 o’clock. Precise orange dashes are found on the hands, bezel and around the flange. The 43 mm case, 60-minute scale, unidirectional rotating bezel and three-row sandblasted bracelet are made from resilient grade 2 titanium.

The lightweight, ultra-robust titanium metal is hypoallergenic and resistant to corrosion, which explains why it is also often used in aeronautics and the manufacturing of sports equipment. It is fitting that this stylish and versatile material was chosen for the new Aquaracer, a timepiece known for being tough enough to face any challenge.

The black-gold-plated hands with orange lacquer are treated with white Super-LumiNova® and the applied Super-LumiNova® indexes allow effortless reading in all lighting conditions and at every depth. As an ultimate utility watch, this timepiece’s professional-level functionality is guaranteed to a depth of 300 m.

The caseback is also fashioned from grade 2 titanium and is engraved with “LIMITED ONE OF 1,500”. Ticking at the heart of this timepiece is the automatic-winding Calibre 5.
