It’s one of the most modern incarnations of the famous Aquaracer, TAG Heuer’s ultimate dive watch. The Swiss watchmaker is presenting its most modern line of models yet, developed based on carbon and sold exclusively in TAG Heuer boutiques and website, an urban look that combines comfort, durability, and sportiness.

The Carbon Aquaracer is available locally in rose gold. The 41mm black PVD-covered titanium case houses the carbon bezel. Thanks to the random injection of carbon fibres into a resin pressed at high temperatures, each piece is unique, boasting an exclusive black and grey marbled motif. A look that evokes the depths of the oceans.

The dial boasts an imitation carbon effect. It’s therefore a watch that’s durable and solid, but above all, light. The full black look, subtly illuminated by hints of color, lends the piece elegance and modernity. Waterproof to 300m, the Aquaracer Carbon is the perfect watch for setting off in search of adventure while maintaining the stylish, sporty look that’s inseparable from TAG Heuer. The watch is enhanced by a beautiful black textile strap whose topstitching echoes the colors of the dial.

Also available is the TAG Heuer Monaco Bamford, the first collaboration in the serial production of a watch for Bamford Watch Department. It’s a brand new interpretation of the iconic TAG Heuer Monaco, sporting a solid carbon case and an elegant full black dial that enhance the aqua blue chronometers.
