TAG Heuer attaches tortoiseshell bezels to latest Aquaracers


TAG Heuer has added two models to its Aquaracer line, both with a tortoiseshell pattern on their bezels.

They join a quartz-based olive green version of the sports watch, which went on sale in June.

TAG Heuer says the tortoiseshell pattern is inspired by the way sunlight reflects off the ocean waves.


The waves are juxtaposed with a horizontally-lined sunray dial meant to look like a yacht’s deck on a rippling sea.

A blue version of the watch has a dappled blue bezel while a red-brown mottled color is used to frame the black-dialed edition.

The 43mm steel watches, containing Calibre 5 automatic movements, have rubber straps embossed with an alligator leather pattern.

Their stainless-steel screw-down case backs are engraved with the image of a vintage divers’ helmet and the Aquaracer’s water-resistance of 1,000 feet.

They go on sale next month for $2,600.
