AG Heuer Aquaracer 300 M (43 mm) Black Titanium
Robust and water-resistant to 300 metres, this TAG Heuer Aquaracer watch features a ceramic uni-directional rotary bezel, with its twelve sides and six studs, screw-down crown, large luminous indications on the indexes and hands for improved visibility and screw-down case back engraved with a diver’s helmet.
New for 2016, the Aquaracer Black Titanium version features Grade 2 titanium with black titanium carbide coating, a strap made from blue nylon with a rubber inner, and a case measuring 43 mm in diameter. The ceramic bezel has a sophisticated new design featuring engraved numerals with blue lacquer. The crystal of the date window also features a magnifier, reintroduced last year. At its heart beats the Calibre 5 automatic mechanical movement, offering proven accuracy and reliability.
This model is available in three colourways: blue, black-and-red, and sand-coloured.
