COVER-TAG-Heuer-Aquarracer-x2

As summer comes to an end there have been several reasonably priced timepieces popping up in the horology market. This pair released by TAG Heuer definitely fits that description. Both are very classical in design and manage to deliver pleasing and functional esthetics without breaking the bank. One of these does contain a quartz movement, but for those more mechanically inclined you’re in luck.

The 43mm case is made of stainless-steel with a mixture of fine-brushed and polished finishes; while on the flip-side we encounter a solid fine-brushed steel case back, which features the engravings of technical details. Mounted to the case is a steel unidirectional rotating bezel that continues the mixture of fine-brushed and polished finishes, seen on the case. But, the subtle contrast in the strokes directions going from the bezel to case view bring a concise presence. Engraved to the bezel is also a 60-minute scale: counted out by 10’s, excluding the 60-minute marker for the iconic triangular index marker (doubling its function as part of a rotating scale).

It comes equipped with a screw-in steel setting-crown, plus those also classic texturally angled lugs; very reminiscent of watches that carry a much heftier price tag comparatively. All topped by a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating, which also assists with water-resistance on this watch reaching up to 300 meters (984 feet).

Time is exhibited on a vibrant green dial with steel-applied hour index markers, followed by a ring of white printed minute/seconds markers circling the periphery of the dial. A stepped pattern can be seen underling and scaling this dial throughout its whole diameter. Besides that it is has been kept quite simple with the TAG Heuer logo inscribed on the upper-half of the dial, while the lower-half highlights the caliber movement and water-resistance. The central stainless-steel hour/minute hands and hour index markers have all been fitted with a luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility. There is also a date aperture at the 3 o’clock position.
