TAG Heuer Aquaracer 300M Ceramic Automatic Diver Replica Watch Reviews
The iconic TAG Heuer Aquaracer family finally gets a handful of new members that have their stainless steel bezels replaced with ceramic ones. Available in black and blue, with plain or blacked-out steel bodies, and featuring a nice choice of available straps, they are still relatively affordable if you take into account a nice combination of attractive styling, reliability, and a bullet-proof automatic movement to finish the picture.
Earlier this year, TAG Heuer has updated its iconic Aquaracer line of relatively inexpensive divers with several new timepieces that feature scratch-proof bezel. While not replacing older models, they somehow manage to significantly refresh and expand the collection with just a couple of light brushes here and there effectively making it a lot more difficult to walk away from the store without blowing a major hole in your budget.(TAG Heuer Aquaracer 300M Ceramic Automatic Diver replica watch)
As I have already mentioned, this is just a minor, um, mid-cycle update, so don’t expect this refreshed model to offer much new in the looks department. Besides the obvious scratch-resistant, glossy ceramic bezel, the 2015 Aquaracer line now features a slightly revised dial with new hours, minutes, and seconds hands, as well as some minor adjustments to smaller elements, like inscriptions and hour markers.
Still, on a more subjective note, I must admit that the face-lifted model looks a lot more interesting than the one that features a more, um, plain steel bezel. There is more energy in it and it projects a lot stronger mojo, too.
Case & Strap
The particularly good thing is that the collection still comes in two sizes: there is a smaller one -40.5 millimeters in diameter- that looks more unisex, and there is a larger one that still measures 43 millimeters and is designed exclusively with men in mind.
Offering the same satin-finished body that is nicely accented with glossy black ceramic bezel, the new timekeeper still looks tool-like, there is nothing ‘subtle’ about this deliberately rough model.
Its shape not only allows the Aquaracer to sit comfortably on a normal wrist but also makes it look a bit more slender than an average diving watch of this size. The unidirectional bezel, with its signature six studs and (again, deliberately) thick profile not only gives this time measuring device an even more energetic appearance but also makes it more comfortable to set the diving timer even while wearing thick gloves.
On the other hand (at least, when it comes to chronographs), wearing this thing with a business suit may prove problematic, especially if you are not a man of heroic proportions. It may just be too brutal for some.
The refreshed Aquaracer still uses the same Caliber 16 self-winding movement as its source of power. Based on the decades-old ETA 7750 chronograph movement (it was actually introduced back in 1974, but underwent a series of upgrades increasing, among other things, jewel count and leaving behind the slower sibling that was working at a rather archaic frequency of 21,600 semi-oscillations per hour,) the modified movement offers the level of robustness and accuracy that is at least on par with the base model.
No wonder that at this time TAG Heuer uses this mechanism to power its most best-selling products including some versions of their popular Carrera chronographs and, of course, the Aquaracer line.
Designed to be used with relatively inexpensive models, the mechanism features a modest exterior finish, which is basically limited to polished screw-heads and a custom oscillating weight that features the usual Geneva stripes pattern and some minor open-working.
Well, given the fact that the mechanism is hidden from your eyes with a solid case back cover that features the usual engraving of an antique diving helmet, this doesn’t look like a serious problem to me. After all, this is a (rather expensive) tool watch.
As you can see on the photos, the 2015 model now features a magnifying lens on its sapphire dial (not sure about the way it is attached to its surface, I think they simply glued the lens on) and (finally!) has the thin white frame around the date window removed. The change in design not only increased the timekeeper’s legibility but also allowed to make the dial a bit less busy: the rectangular frame didn’t play well with the dial with its traditional deck-style horizontal pattern.
