There are very few women’s diver watches that excite me, so when I came across the TAG Heuer 2019 Women’s Aquaracer dive watches, I knew that TAG Heuer was onto something good. Available in two dial variations, the timepieces boast of a blue sunray effect dial or a white mother-of-pearl dial.
Let’s talk about the blue sunray effect dial first. It comes with an engraved sand-wave pattern, that kind of reminds you of the waves or ripples in water. The color of the dial also stands out in contrast to the 35 mm stainless steel case.
The color combination of blue with steel and white luminescent is always a winner. TAG Heuer has kept the logo and ‘300 Meters’ ‘1000 ft’ makings, in accordance to the color vibes of the watch. My favorite aspect of the watch is the quaint date window at the three o’clock spot. The overall feel of the watch is very refreshing.
The white mother-of-pearl dial looks appealing, but in my opinion doesn’t stand out as well as the blue dial. It looks a little washed out in comparison. While the blue dial looks more sporty, the mother of pearl dial leans towards elegance and opulence.
The TAG Heuer 2019 Women’s Aquaracer watch is quartz powered and conforms to the ISO 6425 dive watch requirements. The watch sports a stainless steel unidirectional rotating 0-60 count up bezel. It also showcases an engraved graduated scale, which makes it easier for you to calculate the dive time.
The sapphire crystal on top of the dial, keeps things clear and protected. The caseback is screwed-in while the crown is screwed down. The watch offers water-resistance is 300 meters. To ensure that you can see your watch and read the time easily, TAG Heuer has coated the hands and applied hour indices with luminescent material.
You can read the hours, minutes, seconds (via a central hand), and the date. The blue dial is teamed with a textured blue rubber strap, but you can also opt for a stainless steel bracelet with double safety push-buttons and a diving extension. However, there is no choice with the mother-of-pearl dial watch, you have to team it with the blue rubber strap.
You can expect to pay $1,400 for the mother-of-pearl version, and $1,550 for the blue dial on a rubber strap. The blue dial with stainless steel goes up to $1,700.
