When I just met my current wife, then girlfriend, I gifted her a TAG Heuer Aquaracer. She once showed me the watch in a display at a jeweller, and I kept it in mind.
It was probably after our first year when I bought her this watch for her birthday. It made perfect sense because (unlike me) she’s sporty and slim and she picked a watch that fits her style. I never actually considered the TAG Heuer Aquaracer 300M for myself, although I like the style of the watch.

TAG Heuer Aquaracer 300M

I am not a diver, on the contrary, my swimming skills are far below average, and even my six-year-old daughter shows a cleaner dive than I could ever perform. But I guess that these watches are more about the style than about being a real tool for divers. That said, the watch is certainly up for it. It has a water-resistance of 300 meters (or 30 bar), a screw-down crown and an uni-directional bezel with diving scale. On the bracelet, you’ll find a diving extension as well as double safety push-buttons.

This new collection consists of two watches, basically, one for ladies and one for men. Ladies first! This watch has a diameter of 32mm and has this beautiful emerald green dial, with sunray finish. On the gent’s edition, we find a 43mm case diameter and an emerald green dial with a distinctive motif. This motif consists of horizontal lines, that resembles the wooden docks where boats are moored. Where the 32mm TAG Heuer Aquaracer 300M has a quartz movement, the gent’s version comes with the calibre 5 self-winding movement. This movement is based on the Sellita SW200, which found its blueprint from the famous ETA 2824-2, but with one extra jewel.

I'm not a big Tag guy... but I do like how the Aqua Racers are in an "affordable" range.

and I love Green and etched dials! I will check these out when they hit the stores for sure.

I'm very excited about this new release... it is just the right amount of color and amount of pop for my liking. Let me know what you guys think, and if there is anything you would like me to cover when I do the detailed review within the next week or two. Thanks!

In this video I talk about the good and the bad of the Tag Heuer Aquaracer...and why I think many WIS should circle back for a more objective look at the controversial model.

good video. and an interesting comparison. From just the video it would seem the biggest advantage to the Oris would be the bracelet and clasp. Other than that its probably more about style. I really do want to see this Tag in the flesh when I can.
