TAG Heuer revives an icon, inviting wearers to go even further beyond the edge and into the deep with fresh additions to the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 family, our ultimate luxury tool watch.
Following the launch of the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 series during Watches and Wonders Geneva in April, TAG Heuer today announces three additions to the go-anywhere family of watches, including a new iteration of a TAG Heuer icon, the all-black, lume-dialled TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Night Diver.
TAG Heuer enthusiasts will recognize the name “Night Diver”, which was first introduced in the mid- 1980s. Loved by active, style-conscious watch buyers who push their limits, exploring nature and going beyond the edge, it became one of the most celebrated sports watches of its era.
Today’s TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 collection picks up this story. TAG Heuer’s design, engineering and heritage teams worked together to deliver a faithful update to a much-loved watch, retaining and improving signature details such as the famous 12-sided bezel and the dial’s horizontal engraved lines to produce a refined, highly versatile modern classic.
Introducing a trio of new TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 models
Today’s TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 drop adds three models to the eight announced in April, taking the collection to 11 references. All three new models are non-limited and go into the core collection, each with a 43 mm stainless steel case and rubber strap equipped with TAG Heuer’s innovative adjustable folding clasp.
The new black and blue versions pick up on the bracelet models introduced at Watches and Wonders: both are colour-themed with matching black or blue dials, ceramic bezel inserts and rubber straps.
The standout model of the release is the black DLC-coated Night Diver, joining the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Tribute to Ref. 844 as the collection’s hero pieces. Its stainless-steel case, bezel, crown, case back and clasp are all coated in matt black diamond-like carbon, known as DLC, a high- performance, hard-wearing finish designed for use in extreme conditions. The bezel insert is highly resistant black ceramic.
The Night Diver’s other signature feature is its fully luminescent dial, which is coated in green Super- LumiNova® to deliver exceptional glow-in-the-dark performance. To ensure ultimate legibility in extreme low-light conditions, the watch’s minute and central seconds hands are filled with blue lume to contrast with the green of the dial. The hour hand and octagonal hour markers at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock are filled with green lume, and the remaining octagonal hour markers are all edged with black lacquer. The triangle on the unidirectional rotating bezel at 12, which is crucial to accurately and safely measure dive times, is also filled with striking blue lume to match the blue of the minute and central seconds hands.
In April, TAG Heuer also introduced a highly collectible limited-edition version of the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 at launch to both complement the core collection and salute the design’s wonderful heritage. It’s called the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Tribute to Ref. 844, and, as the name suggests, it picks up on the story of the fabled Ref. 844 divers’ watch introduced in 1978.
Only 844 examples of the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Tribute to Ref. 844 will be made and launched in September 2021.
