  • Tag Heuer Aquaracer 500M Chronograph CAJ2110: Anotrher Collection Upgrade

    Still converting my collection to higher end models and watches I've always wanted but never had the funds. Well selling off some of the many watches (Invicta and others) I've amassed some funds that have allowed me to acquire several of these "grails" I've always wanted. The latest is the Tag Heuer Aquaracer 500M Chronograph. Always loved the looks of this model especially the bezel design and dial. It is 44mm and has a wonderful wrist presence. I picked this one up with both the stainless steel bracelet and the rubber strap. Two very different looks for the same watch. It's like having 2 watches in 1. It has the Calibre 16 movement, a modified ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph and is running COSC time. The deep ridged, tuxedo dial is mesmerizing in the sunlight. Very, very, pleased with this one. I really like it on the rubber strap as it is a no-cut fold under style with infinite adjustment so no keepers, no overhang and always a perfect fit. Such incredible quality in this timepiece. Here are some pictures:

        Good looking watch and appears to have good lume as well. The fold under type strap clasp IMO are the best ones around. Looks like regular lugs which will also allow infinite possibilities with this one, congrats.

            Roy, it disturbs me deeply that you got the rubber strap with this deal. I've been wanting that stupid piece of rubber and steel for about 3 years now.

            Incredible, great pick up. You are the man!

                          Fantastic!

                          I can honestly say that I haven't ever been all that jazzed by the Aquaracer...... But your pics have made me reconsider.
                          I get it and understand why you are so happy with it.
