The new “green” Aquaracer is out and it’s pretty sexy. The $2,200 watch comes in his and hers – 43mm and 32mm – and the larger model runs a Calibre 5 Automatic movement while the smaller one runs quartz.
“Ideal for an individual or purchased together as couple’s watches, these modern Aquaracer models invite the wearers to live the good life – whether that’s cruising on the waves or exploring the world below the surface,” writes TAG because that’s how Swiss press releases are written.
Interestingly, the larger model features a very nice 3D face with deeply-embedded lines that “resembles the wooden docks where sailboats are moored.” It is also water resistant to 300 meters.
Is it the best possible diver available? No. But is it a nice update for a pretty inexpensive watch? Sure. It should be hitting the online store shortly and it should be a nice addition to a fairly staid line of divers.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
