The dials on these watches are familiar terrain for recent Aquaracers, employing the same horizontal striping we saw in the blue Aquaracer GMT right here. These dials have a brushed sunray pattern that seems to fit with the casual, summery, and water influenced vibes they’re going for. The rubber strap with an alligator leather pattern also contributes to the general “I’m on a boat!” feeling, but in a way that protects your investment if you should happen to fall overboard.
The Aquaracer case sits at 43mm in diameter, which is a hefty watch on paper, but should wear pretty light with the rubber strap. The case is also fairly contoured, which makes me think that the watch will remain wearable for most, even if it’s not super discreet. With a tortoiseshell bezel (made from a resin compound, a first for the brand) that doesn’t seem like the point, anyway. TAG Heuer
