People love a nice looking watch. A great watch not only looks good on your wrist but it also imparts a certain aura to the wearer. There are numerous brands in the market that offer great watches for you to brandish. Some of which we have covered previously. Like the CNY watches from Chopard, Jaquet Droz, and other luxe watchmakers. The awesome military watches that will make you feel manly and the watches from Oris that are aiding the rescue of our Oceans.
Each and every one of those timepieces tells a unique story. Therefore, when it came to our attention that high street jewelers Goldsmiths had partnered up with TAG Heuer, it piqued our curiosity.
Tell me more about it!
This, however, isn’t the first time the two have come together to release a stunning watch though. The first instance of this was last year when they released an Aquaracer with a dark and sporty colorway. The watch looked quite stunning then but the new one is even better.
The new watch is also an Aquaracer. Specifically, it is the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Calibre 5. The watch itself has a nice, vintage feel to it. The rotating bezel of the watch is unidirectional and bears a beautiful burgundy color. The burgundy on the bezel compliments the black dial quite well.
Despite all the attention to the attractiveness though, the makers didn’t throw legibility out of the window. The characters on the dial are bold and crisp. All this isn’t surprising since the watch started its life as a tool. The demanding world of watersports wouldn’t even consider a barely legible watch after all.
What is an Aquaracer?!
The Aquaracers were built to withstand everything that Poseidon could throw at them. This shows in the construction of the new watch. The watch has an impressive water resistance of up to 300 meters. The 43mm case is made out of stainless steel. The watch has a power reserve of 38 hours. The bracelet is made out of stainless steel as well.
How much for this beauty?
If you wish to get this watch, you must fork over 2,350 Euros. But even then it wouldn’t be easy to get one of these since it is a limited edition with only 250 pieces slated to be made. Therefore, hurry to the Goldsmiths’ website to purchase one if you wish to own it.
