TAG Heuer Aquaracer Camouflage
From the list of Baselworld participants, TAG Heuer could not miss with its new realese Aquaracer Camouflage. On this occasion, I found out that the company decided to switch to Commando mode since military style is this year’s hottest trend. With khaki everywhere, and printed camouflage making a powerful return, it is sure to bring out the GI Joe or Jane in you.
The Aquaracer Camouflage offers pretty much everything you'd expect from an all-terrain watch. The watch belongs to the Aquaracer collection, TAG Heuer's line of sports watches.
Edouard Heuer filed the first patent for a watertight case in the history of watchmaking in 1892. It was an immediate success. Since that time, the Aquaracer (the collection created by TAG Heuer in 2003) has continued to evolve, developing into the timepiece for all kinds of extreme conditions, not just diving and other seafaring activities.
Water-resistant to 300 metres, the robust lightweight case is machined from Grade 2 titanium with a matt black PVD treatment to reinforce its stealth effect, as nothing must catch the light or the enemy's eye. The bezel has a minute track (graduated every minute for the first 15 minutes) and is made from matt black ceramic, which is also particularly scratch-resistant. Perfect in a hostile environment. Date window is at 3 o'clock with magnifier.
Aquaracer Camouflage features a TAG Heuer Automatic Calibre 5 movement with date. To refine the aspect, the watch was provided with an uni-directional rotary bezel with black ceramic minute track or sand-blasted aluminium minute track, with green anodised coating with sapphire crystal with anti-reflection coating and the crown and crown protector at 3 o'clock, made from sand-blasted Grade 2 titanium covered with black PVD. The timepiece is water resistant up to 300 meters.
Aquaracer Camouflage has a dial made of opaline blue camouflage or matt khaki dial and opaline blue camouflage or matt khaki flange with 60-second track. Among other technical specifications I should mention the faceted indexes and hour and minute hands, lacquered blue with anthracite SuperLuminova or polished and black gold-plated and lacquered with khaki SuperLuminova. The TAG Heuer logo is at 12 o'clock in black or in green.
Hostile like the Siberian Tundra which inspired the "Arctic" camouflage pattern. To complete these two models, what could be better than a NATO strap, tone-on-tone to match the dials? For the "Arctic" model, TAG Heuer has developed a custom pattern, which is woven with threads of different colours, to ensure both that it is hard-wearing and that the colours are uniform. For the "Khaki" model, the watch is complemented by a military green fabric strap, with top-stitching details. Being in action is no joke. The price for this watch is 2,500 euro.
