This week, TAG Heuer unveiled their latest updated of the Aquaracer 300M collection with several models using the three hands and date, Calibre 5, and four new versions of the Calibre 16 chronograph. The main novelty is the use of a high contrast and scratch resistant ceramic bezel, as opposed to brushed steel.
Apart the bezel, a closer inspection will reveal updates to the hands and applied indexes too. They are a lot bolder than on the earlier version. Here are two Aquaracer 300M chronograph, so that you can see the differences:
As you can see, the one with ceramic bezel (Ref. CAY211A.BA0927) got a loupe over the date window, there is no white border around the date, and the 300M inscription at six o’clock is printed in colour. The bracelet too is fully brushed.
TAG Heuer has also added two new models with a stealth design, crafted from titanium grade 2: the special edition Aquaracer 300M Calibre 5 Black Phantom, limited to 2,500 pieces, and the Aquaracer 300M Calibre 16 Automatic Chronograph Black Phantom.
