Tag Heuer has updated their Aquaracer Professional 300 collection with an all-new beautifully bright coloured dial for their Watches & Wonder release. The Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Orange Diver is joining a large collection of timepieces in the Aquaracer 300 range unveiled back in 2021. This latest piece shares the same DNA that makes the previous Aquaracer great, a luxury timepiece that is also designed to suit the more adventurous side. 

This latest unveiling from Tag Heuer has taken inspiration from the first reference 844 timepieces, a watch that the brand paid tribute to last year along with the initial launch of the Aquaracer Professional 300 collection. One of the 1970’s reference 844 models featured an orange dial as well, which with its vibrant yet playful colour became a crowd favourite. The colour orange is also thought of as an important colour for those that are going underwater, as it can be more easily read compared to other dial colours. Since the reference 844 orange models, the colour has been used in various other timepieces from Tag Heuer, including the orange Formula 1 model released in 2021. To bring this colour into the Aquaracer 300 collection is certainly refreshing. 

Design:

The Aquaracer Professional 300 Orange Diver comes in a fine-brushed and polished 43mm stainless steel case. The watch comes with a 12-sided unidirectional rotating bezel with a scratch-resistant black ceramic ring. 

The timepiece follows the same design codes as the other models released in the 2021 Aquaracer 300 Professional collection. The vibrant orange dial sits as the background for the perfect contrast against the Super-LumiNova coated hour indexes and hands. These elements are also quite large too, which is exactly what you need on a professional diver’s timepiece. The orange dial has horizontal lines across it, similar to the other models in this collection. But on the orange background, it seems more prevalent and gives the dial more character. 

There is a date window at 6 o’clock present, with the sapphire glass covering the case having a magnifier integrated onto the underside of the glass so that the date can be very easily read. This new model also comes with a bracelet that the Aquaracer Professional 300 collection from 2021 is using. The fine adjustment system on the stainless steel bracelet can extend or reduce the length of the bracelet by up to 1.5cm. As a diver’s watch this can be especially important, as when the diver wants the watch to be worn over thin gloves, it can be done so with this quick adjustment. 

Movement:

Tag Heuer has supplied the Aquaracer Professional 300 Orange Diver with the brand’s own Calibre 5 movement. This automatic movement is reliable for underwater expeditions as the watch is rated to a resistance of 300m. The movement has a power reserve of approximately 38 hours. 

The latest addition to the Aquaracer Professional 300 collection is a pure symbol of Tag Heuer’s avant-garde spirit. The watch draws on a legacy that started almost more than 40 years ago with the reference 844 orange models and is now continuing with the release of this beautiful aesthetic timepiece. Designed to be suited for many different occasions, whether luxury events, casual everyday wear or diving, the Aquaracer Professional 300 Orange Diver is quickly becoming the perfect companion.
