Earlier this year TAG Heuer unveiled its revamped Aquaracer collection, taking its classic diving watch and reengineering it to deliver both enhanced performance and a refined aesthetic. Now it is making three further additions to the family, including a sophisticated take on its popular ‘Night Diver’, first introduced in the 1980s.
The latter is a particularly striking interpretation of this underwater icon, defined by its all-black case paired with a white opaline dial that fully illuminates when plunged into darkness. This is achieved through green Super-LumiNova coating, paired with blue lume on the minute and central seconds hands, as well as further green lume on the hour hand and markers, ensuring optimal legibility in all conditions. Adding to its robust feel is the DLC coating on the case, bezel, crown, caseback and clasp, providing a hard-wearing finish as well as lending the watch a contemporary look.
It comes accompanied by a duo of stainless-steel models, one with a black bezel and dial, and the other in blue. All benefit from the ergonomic tweaks made to the Aquaracer design, from adjustments to the crown to protect against accidental damage to the 12-facet bezel specially constructed for ease of use underwater. And further speaking to their diving credentials is TAG Heuer’s newly developed adjustable clasp system. After undergoing a fitting process in the boutique where the straps are cut to length, the wearer can then effortlessly adjust the fit to even the smallest margins, ideal perhaps for snugly fitting over a wetsuit before descending into the deep.
