TAG Heuer Aquaracer 500


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 )
