TAG Heuer Aquaracer Artic Watch Review
Friday - 27 October 2017
TAG Heuer introduces two new bold members to the Aquaracer collection. Following the military trend of the fashion world the Aquaracer Camouflage is dressed head to toe in khaki green and blue camo. The duo certainly makes you to stand to attention with their bold colour combinations that reflect that of an army soldier or navy seal.
Throughout the years, the TAG Heuer team have evolved the Aquaracer line up to survive extreme conditions in addition to diving and other seafaring activities; the perfect candidate to embrace the missions undertaken by each military organisation on land, air or sea.
The lightweight yet robust case is made from Grade 2 titanium with a matt black PVD treatment. The case design understands the requirement for soldiers to remain hidden from the enemy reinforcing the stealth effect. The scratch resistant bezel features a minute track, which is marked every minute for the first fifteen and then continues to mark every ten with oversized numerals and five with a simple, slim rectangle.
Both the case and bezel are well suited to a hostile environment – a hostile environment such as the Siberian Tundra, located in the northeastern part of Russia where the snow covered winters are long with temperatures reaching below freezing. The long awaited summers are very short in comparison. It is an area that inspired the Artic camouflage uniform of the Aquaracer.
To fasten the military inspired instrument both models feature a matching NATO strap to compliment the dials. The Artic strap features a custom made design specially developed by TAG Heuer. The pattern is woven with different colour threads for a hard-wearing, unified result.
The new Aquaracer models captures the military trend in both design and functionality presenting a stylish yet practical piece. The new design is ready for any mission underwater, on land and when conquering the skies.
