aq500_150x150

At Baselworld 2009 TAG Heuer unveiled the Aquaracer 500. The numeric designation reflects guaranteed water resistance to 500 meters. The 43mm watch features an automatic helium release valve and a sapphire crystal and case back in a case that took 4 years to develop. A cyclops lens magnifies the date at 3, and luminescent markers on the numbers and hands improve legibility in low or no light. Steel models feature a steel and rubber bezel. Buckles feature a push-button clasp and diver’s extension. Bracelets offer half-links providing a wider range of adjustment. An ETA automatic caliber 2836-2 ticks below the dial.

Available with black dial on rubber strap, silver dial with steel bracelet or rubber strap, or blue dial with steel bracelet at $2450. For a step up, chose the steel model with a solid 18 karat 5N rose gold bezel, with 18 grams of gold, at $3650. A quartz version is also available, priced at $1950. All models are available now.

  1. Dear Watchtime team,
    I’m wondering what is the main reason why a Tag heuer watche is by far more expensive than a Tissot watche even if the two watches have the same quartz movement, the same case material ( 316L steel ), same sapphire glass. I know
    that a TAG is water resistant to at least 200m (that means a better case construc-
    tion and require a double-sealling )
