TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200 Solargraph

TAG Heuer goes into uncharted territory with the debut of its first solar-powered watch, the Aquaracer Professional 200 Solargraph. Following the Aquaracer collection’s redesign in 2021, the Solargraph redefines’made for outdoors’ with a solar-powered watch. Powered by the calibre TH50-00 manufactured particularly for TAG Heuer by Manufacture La Joux-Perret, power generation has been optimized to ensure optimal performance as it absorbs both natural and artificial light.

Two minutes in the sun can fuel the watch for a whole day, and a completely charged capacity assures the watch can work independently for six months. If the Solargraph stops operating after a lengthy period of inactivity, 10 seconds of light exposure will restart it. The Aquaracer Professional 200 Solargraph has a black DLC coated stainless steel case with a carbon and green SuperLumiNova bezel inlay.

TAG Heuer Carrera X Porsche Limited Edition

The TAG Heuer Carrera X Porsche Limited Edition marks the start of the second phase of the TAG Heuer X Porsche collaboration. The latest limited edition model pays homage to Porsche’s iconic yellow, which is reserved for its sportiest vehicles. The red highlights featured on the initial edition have been replaced with yellow, and the metallic exterior of Porsche’s automobiles has been replicated on the dial.

Given TAG Heuer and Porsche’s strong associations with motorsports, two subdials have an asphalt texture. Other Porsche-inspired elements include an oscillating mass fashioned like a Porsche steering wheel and placed on the Calibre HEUER 02 Automatic movement, as well as a textile-inspired leather strap with double stitching inspired by Porsche vehicle seat fabric.

Aquaracer Professional 1000 Superdiver

The Aquaracer Professional 1000 Superdiver, which was first revealed at Watches & Wonders 2021, lives up to the expectations. The Aquaracer Professional 1000 Superdiver is the first to employ the calibre TH30-00 from Kenissi Manufacture SA, one of the most highly respected movement makers in the industry. The new watch, as the name implies, is designed for professional divers and will be capable of withstanding depths of up to 1,000 meters. Divers will particularly enjoy TAG Heuer’s attention to detail when it comes to the watch’s hands.

The hour hand, in instance, is shaped like an arrow and is larger than that of the Aquaracer Professional 300. It’s also incredibly visible underwater because to the Super-LumiNova coating. The minute and second hands, which are most important to divers, are also orange to boost visibility. Despite its strong construction, the Aquaracer Professional 1000 Superdiver has a thickness of only 15.75mm, giving it a sleek and elegant feel, so it’ll feel at home whether you’re diving or just sitting at your desk.
