The TAG Heuer CAK211A.BA0833 is a new Calibre 72 model and its countdown function (displaying 5, 10 or 15 minutes) is intended for the sport of yachting. Based on the yacht’s class, a race’s starting sequence is divided into 5-minute increments. The boats jockey for position in increments of 5, 10 or 15 minutes before crossing the starting line and initiating the race. The Regatta function enables a countdown timer, which splits time across 5 windows. While TAG Heuer had launched many watches with the Countdown function (known as the Regatta function) over the years, this new Chronograph model brought back the “5-segment” display window that was once only found on the 70’s Heuer Regatta models.
The polished steel case, glossy black ceramic bezel and strap with polished edges not only make it durable, but also give the watch a sophisticated look. The dial’s horizontal streaks make the contrasting sub-dials literally pop out.
The Aquaracer 500m Countdown Chronograph has a variety of functions on its 43mm dial, but manages to not look crowded and ensure a high degree of legibility. These functions include a running second sub-dial at the 9 o’clock position, a minutes counter at the 3 o’clock position and an automatic helium valve at the 10 o’clock mark to make the watch resistant to changing air pressure levels in a decompression chamber. The watch’s sapphire crystal is sourced from a slab of polished sapphire, and is highly resistant to scratches - it can only be scratched by a diamond. It is resistant to water up to 500m. This model uses a thick glass, bezel and case back for a greater depth rating, as well as rubber-coating on the chronograph pushers and crown. Instead of diamond shaped hands, this new model uses skeleton hands for greater visibility of its countdown function.
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.
