Has anyone had time to catch TAG Heuer's Aquaracer 43mm Calibre 5
Automatic with ‘Tortoise Shell Effect’ bezel by chance?

There is a black dial version with brown tortoise shell effect bezel,
and then a blue dial model with blue tortoise shell effect bezel. Both
with 43mm stainless steel cases, flat sapphire crystals, and 300M
WR. With you having classy rubber straps with alligator pattern,
and Calibre 5 automatic movement too.


A few pictures for you...















Monochrome with much more guys...

I generally have not liked Tag for quite awhile. Swatch has a way of doing that to watch brands. But this one is different. Might be because as the Monochrome review says. They kind of use the Aquaracer as a testbed of sorts. So the freedom to do things a little different can be an inspiration. I really love the brown bezel on the black dial. I also like the thin case that shows multi polishing techniques. Lastly the two colored lume thing seems to be all the rage lately. And, they have done a great job with it here.
Bottom line, I love the watch. But... I can buy 5 or 6 watches easily for what they're asking. But that bezel sure is cool.:cool:

Forza, you know, you are really on to something with the Aquaracer
I think, and how TAG Heuer views it ! 😵😀Just the sheer variations,
and then classic models joined by brand new models like this really
is terrific. Not to mention it being that inspiration to their watchmakers,
as well as us fans. (y)

Honestly, as soon as you see these, it puts a smile on your face. 🙂
From the tortoise bezel, to the multi polishing, and double lume you
mentioned, they're just fun to see right?!

Thanks so so much for chiming in Forza !!!
