Elegant outdoor performance: Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200
A synonym for TAG Heuer? Racing. Whether on the asphalt (think of the Carrera and the Monaco) or on the water or snow. Even when it comes to the latter activities, the Swiss have the right caliber on offer. Like the newly revised Aquaracer Professional 200. Launched in 1978 as »Ref. 844,« the watch series got its additional name in 2004, but always remained true to six basic principles: unidirectional rotating bezel, at least 200 meters of water resistance, luminous markers, a sapphire crystal and a clasp with double safety. Diving? It's just as possible as sailing or freeriding on the glacier - stylish appearance included.
Launched in 1978 as "Ref. 844," the watch series was given the additional name "Aquaracer" in 2004, but always remained true to six basic principles: unidirectional rotating bezel, minimum 200-meter water resistance, luminous markings, a sapphire crystal, and a clasp with a double safety catch.
Trends may come and go, but watchmakers will still be relying on these virtues in 2022. Frédéric Arnault, CEO of TAG Heuer, sums it up: »The Aquaracer bears the TAG Heuer signature as much as the TAG Heuer Carrera or the Monaco. Its typical characteristics and the philosophy behind them were defined decades ago and are more meaningful and attractive than ever, especially in these times of upheaval and change.«
On top of that, there are visual and technical improvements. For example, the new model is one millimeter slimmer in diameter (40mm) and height (11mm), while being even more durable, according to the manufacturer. The range also includes a smaller variant with a diameter of 30mm, and the manufacturer also offers different automatic and quartz options for both sizes. This way, none of the customers will be left floundering when making a decision - and if they do, it won't be a tragedy. After all, the Aquaracer 200 Professional is explicitly designed for water excursions.
