TAG Heuer Aquaracer caliber 5 Ref.: WBD2113.BA0928
While there have been a number of Aquaracer models over the last few years, the 300m is the model that is the closest in execution to the original Heuer 2000 of 1982, the predecessor of the Aquaracer range. If you’re new to the history of the TAG Heuer 2000 and Aquaracer, then make sure you check out the Ultimate Guide to the TAG Heuer 2000.
And it’s not just the look of the watch that’s new, it’s also our first chance to see TAG Heuer’s new pricing strategy played out across a major series, with a greater emphasis on quartz models, which feature subtle design changes to differentiate them from the mechanical models. Boasting a full quartz range has allowed TAG Heuer to keep a tight grip on pricing, which starts at less than EUR2,000.
There is no mistaking the watch for anything other than an Aquaracer, with the new model keeping the traditional look of the Aquaracer/ 2000 series that was launched more than 30 years ago. Take a look at the image below that shows the evolution of the 2000/ Aquaracer from 1982 (left), 1991 (centre) and 1995 (right).While the look has evolved, the basic design has been maintained through the case shape and the trademark six studs on the rotating bezel.
You’ll also notice that the Calibre 5 has “Aquaracer” just below the TAG Heuer logo, while on the quartz model this sits above the 6 o’clock hour-marker.
Even the hands are different- slightly thicker hour and minute hands for the Calibre 5, in addition to a more elaborate sweeping seconds hand.
