TAG Heuer has released a trio of new Aquaracers for the summer. The first diver, which has actually already been available since June,
is this ruggedly handsome olive-green khaki variant, while the following two models which will be available from August, boast a unique tortoiseshell pattern on their diver’s bezel inlays.
Introducing the Aquaracer 43mm Khaki Animation Special Edition watch with its combination of a sturdy khaki green fabric and sleek anthracite sunray brushed dial.
The trendy olive-green color can be found on watch’s aluminum unidirectional rotating bezel, for the WR text on its dial as well as its mil-style fabric strap with a steel pin buckle.
The quartz-powered Aquaracer Khaki comes with a 43mm Stainless steel case with a combination polished and fine-brushed finish.
The watch’s anthracite sunray brushed dial is with rhodium-plated hour, minute and seconds hands which have been coated with white SuperLumiNova while an angled date aperture can be found at 3 o’clock on the dial.
Finally like any Aquaracer, the case-back has been engraved with the image of a vintage divers’ helmet. Water-resistance is 300 meters.
Thoughts? True watch enthusiasts typically shy away from quartz models (myself included, to an extent); as compared to their mechanical counterparts, they are somewhat lacking in emotion.
However you really can’t beat their sheer convenience. I often find myself grabbing one of quartz watches as tbh most of the time I can’t f#@k*d setting up a mechanical watch.
I wish had a grab ‘n’ go as good-looking as this TAG. Would it be worth investing in a high-quality quartz diver such as this – what do you think?
