TAG Heuer has announced the launch of a special edition Aquaracer watch series created in collaboration with Naomi Osaka.
Japanese professional tennis player Naomi Osaka became a TAG Heuer brand ambassador in January 2021. To celebrate their partnership, Naomi and TAG Heuer worked together to create a new watch, an Aquaracer, which will be launched exclusively in the United States, Japan and Australia.
For this special edition, Naomi Osaka wanted the TAG Heuer model that bears her name to have shades of green on the dial and the strap. The green color has selected to reflect the champion’s dedication to tennis and her love for environment.
The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Naomi Osaka Limited Edition has two shades of green: the dial has a distinctive pale green colour forming a wave pattern, while details on the five minutes markers are in a different shade of green with a subtle reference to the colour of tennis balls. The octagonal hour markers are made of diamonds.
Green is also found in the two straps delivered with the watch: both on the green rubber strap which comes with the watch, and in the additional strap made from fishing nets. This strap is 100% recyclable and recycled, perfectly reflecting Naomi Osaka’s commitment to the environment.
A special tool to make it easy to change the straps is also included. Finally, the case back is decorated with the player’s official logo: a teddy bear holding a flower. Naomi’s favourite emblem can also be found on the exclusive packaging of this limited-edition watch.
TAG Heuer’s Aquaracer watches are known for their exceptional robustness and for their hour markers and hands that are unusually wide for this type of model. This makes it easy to see the time with one glance and it is worth noting that the Aquaracer’s bezel is also extra-wide which brings a bold design to the time piece and improve the readability.
The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Naomi Osaka Limited Edition comes in a black and green box featuring the player’s official logo as well as the TAG Heuer logo. The box includes a black travel pouch with green over-stitching.
The Aquaracer Professional 300 Naomi Osaka Limited Edition will be available in shops and online from January 2022. The series will be limited to 250 pieces, numbered from 1 to 250.
