Two Cool TAG Heuer Aquaracers

The Rake takes a look at the TAG Heuer Aquaracer.

TAG Heuer might be best known for classic chronographs, but the brand has strong form when it comes to divers too. The brand first dipped its toes into dive watch waters in 1978, with the reference 844. For many, though, the iconic TAG Heuer diver is the Aquaracer, a design that has taken the familiar dive watch formula and made it all its own. “Historically when Heuer became TAG Heuer, the brand was rebuilt almost exclusively on dive watches. I’m talking about the series 1000, 2000 and up to 6000 and then the S/EL — the Link. These watches all had a number of key features, a unidirectional bezel, luminous markings, screw-in crown, double folding clasp, 300 metres of water resistance. These are the features that were typical to dive watches and the collection was built on that,” says Frédéric Arnault, CEO of TAG Heuer.
