Based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, this brand is currently run by its President and CEO Jean-Claude Biver. The great grandson of founder Edouard Heuer- Jack Heuer, is still a part of the company and is its honourary Chairman.
The Tag Heuer WAF1412.BA0823 Aquaracer has a case that is made of durable stainless steel. Its bracelet is also made of steel and features the three link easy link design. A white dial has been used to complement the steel of the case and the bracelet. All markings on the dial are in stainless steel, adding to the simplicity of the design. The hour markers are marked using rectangles, while the twelfth hour index is the only marker on the face of the dial, which is displayed through an enlarged Arabic numeral 12. On the circumference of the dial, the minutes are shown using small dashes that are silver in colour. The silver tone of the hours, minutes and seconds hands give a classic appearance to the watch. Further, the Tag Heuer shield is displayed below the twelfth hour index and just above the sixth hour index, the word Aquaracer is displayed. An anti-reflective sapphire crystal is placed over the dial for greater protection. Its bezel is unidirectional and made of stainless steel, the same material as the case. Markings are displayed for the minutes on the bezel in multiples of 10.
This WAF1412.BA0823 Aquaracer watch has a high water resistance of 300 metres. Activities like scuba diving, snorkeling and swimming can thus be indulged in, without causing any damage to the clock mechanism. The hands of the dial have a luminescent fill, so that you can read the time easily even in the dark. An additional feature provided is the date function that is displayed through a small window that is cut into the dial, at the 3 o’clock position.
Founded as Uhrenmanufaktur Heuer AG by Edouard Heuer in 1860, the brand was renamed as TAG Heuer in 1985 when Techniques d’Avant Garde bought it. It was sold to LVMH, a French luxury goods conglomerate, in 1999. Edouard Hueur’s first chronograph was patented in 1882 and he invented an oscillating pinion in 1887, which is used till now by several principal watchmakers.
The Aquaracer collection was launched in 1982, as a tribute to TAG Hueur’s proficiency in reliable watchmaking. This collection has been especially designed and meticulously tested for professional divers and underwater workers. The timepieces in this collection can easily withstand the most rigorous sailing conditions. They feature a sporty and refined design, making them ideal for everyday use as well. All the watches feature 6 signature studs on the unidirectional rotating bezel for an easy grip. Most of the timepieces come in fine brushed and polished stainless steel, while some feature an 18 carat yellow gold and red gold ring on the bezel and gold plating on the hour markers and indexes. They are presented in an “H-shaped” bracelet with a folding clasp at the end for a secure fit.
The new Aquaracer Lady launched in 2014 retains the classic features of the Aquaracer watches but also features ultra-feminine and luxury finishes. The watches come in 27 mm and 32 mm cases with white mother of pearl, black, and silver dials ensconced inside. Some of the models showcase 11 Top Wesselton Diamonds on the dial along with 30 larger diamonds encrusted on the bezel.
The Aquaracer 500M is the most popular model of this collection and celebrates the brand’s partnership with Oracle Team USA in the 34th America’s Cup.
Tag Heuer has been endorsed by many eminent personalities including Priyanka Chopra, Shah Rukh Khan, Steve MCQueen, Leonardo Di Caprico, Cameron Diaz, Tiger Woods, Uma Thurman, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Maria Sharpova.
