TAG Heuer Pays Homage To Summer With The Aquaracer ‘Tortoise Shell’ Watch

Few things go together better than wristwear and sunglasses, regardless of the season. Despite their differences, the two have become an essential part of every guy’s well-rounded wardrobe, and now, TAG Heuer has decided to bring the pair even closer together with its Aquaracer “Tortoise Shell” Calibre 5 dive watch.

For years, the tortoiseshell effect has been used within the world of eyewear, becoming as iconic and recognizable as many of the genre’s most famous silhouettes. Noting the popularity of the unique style, TAG Heuer has adapted its already-prolific Aquaracer series to take on the hue. Aside from the watch’s bespoke bezel insert, everything is par for the course here. The watch still boasts its 43mm stainless steel case, manageable size, ETA 2824-2 based Calibre 5 automatic movement, and 300-meter water resistance, calling upon shortened lugs to enhance its compact appeal. But what sets the new Aquaracer apart from its brethren is the inclusion of TAG’s new 12-sided unidirectional dive bezel, which adopts the pattern of the eyewear world’s most prominent tortoiseshell glasses. The “Tortoise Shell” Calibre 5 will offer wearers a 42-hour power reserve, as well as two interesting iterations — a traditional brown bezel, and a sea-faring, blue bezel variant. Information on pricing and availability has yet to be released, so keep your eyes peeled for an impending announcement this August.
