Official watch of the World Surf League & Big Wave Tour for which TAG Heuer serves as official timekeeper, the new Aquaracer 300M is a diver’s watch suited to extreme conditions and boasting water resistance to 300 meters as its name implies. It is chiefly distinguished by the revamped, more dynamic design of its unidirectional bezel that is ceramic-coated and fitted with six studs ensuring a perfect grip. The horizontally streaked dial bears applied hour-markers and hands featuring highly visible luminescent markers. The automatic version comes with 41mm-diameter steel cases framing black or blue dials, black or blue bezels and a choice of steel bracelet or topstitched nylon strap. As of November 2015, it will also be available with blackened titanium cases in either a standard Black version or a Black Phantom numbered special edition distinguished by “black gold-treated” hands and hour-markers and a gray luminescent material.
