TAG Heuer Aquaracer Joined by Aquaracer 500M Calibre 5

Apr 30, 2009
The TAG Heuer Aquaracer collection has been joined by a new professional water-sports watch - the Aquaracer 500M Calibre 5. The boldly designed timepiece features impressive dimensions. Its firm construction implies supreme performance under pressure.

The case of the Aquaracer 500M Calibre 5 watch is sculptured from brushed stainless steel and measures 43mm in diameter. The unidirectional turning bezel is provided with six studs for most comfortable grip even with diving gloves. The bezel displays brushed numbers and circular-patterned rubber molding.

The screw-in crown is fine-brushed and color-coated. It is fitted with double safety gaskets to keep it safe from dust or water penetration.

The dial of the TAG Heuer watch is available in black, silver, or blue. It is embellished with an intricate line pattern, and completed with broad stick hour markers coated with luminous material, the same as the baton-shaped hands and tip of the seconds hand, for perfect readability even under reduced light conditions.

The date function is presented via a window positioned at 9 o'clock. It is found beneath a magnifying lens integrated with the flat sapphire crystal. To make the watch suitable for use by professional divers at great depths, the case construction incorporates an automatic helium release valve.

The TAG Heuer Aquaracer 500M watch is equipped with the self-winding ETA 2836-2 caliber. The exclusive mechanism may be admired through a sapphire crystal window in the screw-locked case-back. The bridges of the caliber demonstrate circular graining decoration, while the central winding rotor shows off a Cotes de Geneve pattern. The movement gives an advantage of 42 hours of power reserve.

The TAG Heuer Aquaracer 500M watch, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, is also available in a successful combination of steel and gold. This version of the timepiece incorporates the unidirectional bezel in 5N 18-K rose gold that frames a black dial.

The TAG Heuer watch is water resistant to 500 meters.

The TAG Heuer Aquaracer 500M is secured to the wrist on a rubber dive strap, or a stainless steel bracelet fitted with an integral dive extension and a safety push-buttons system.
