TAG Heuer has launched its new Aquaracer Professional 200 Solargraph, the brand’s first ever solar-powered watch.
Unveiled at Watches & Wonders 2022 in Geneva, it is the first TAG Heuer timepiece utilising calibre TH50-00 produced by La Joux-Perret, using the renowned and proven “Eco-Drive” solar dial technology for the first time in Switzerland.
The Aquaracer Professional 200 Solargraph features a 40mm diameter steel case with black DLC coating and bezel inserts made of a blend of carbon and green Super-LumiNova®.
The particular dial of the timepiece is partially transparent, allowing the movement to be charged by sunrays, and the specific blue green color gives off an intense and unique shade reminiscent of the incredible colors of the aurora borealis that light up the nights above the Artic Circles.
The bezel, dial and hands employ Super-LumiNova® allowing the watch to feature outstanding legibility at nightfall.
With the Solargraph movement, no need to change the battery of the watch, it recharges with the sun or artificial light. The movement needs only two minutes in full sunlight to keep the watch running for a whole day. When fully charged – after less than 20 hours under the sun, the watch can run for six months. If the timepiece stops working, you just need to expose it again to light for ten seconds to make it work again, thanks to its ultra-efficient recharge time.
The autonomy of the watch can even be extended to 3.5 years when the Power Save mode is activated. The user can turn on very easily the Power Save mode just by pulling the crown of the watch.
To develop this reliable and very efficient solar movement, TAG Heuer has teamed up with the Manufacture of La Joux-Perret based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, using the renowned and proven “Eco-Drive” solar dial technology for the first time in Switzerland. Caliber TH50-00 is developed and produced exclusively for TAG Heuer.
The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200 Solargraph will benefit from an extended international warranty up to five years.
A black rubber strap gives the watch a sporty look by keeping in line with the athletic positioning of the Aquaracer Professional collection.
The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200 Solargraph will be sold worldwide in the brand’s boutiques and on TAG Heuer’s e-commerce site starting October 2022.
