The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Caliber 5 verdict

One thing that we always liked about the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Caliber 5 is that they are distinctive. They offer their own personality that does not look too much like anything else. the bezel, in particular, with its studs for grip while using with diving gloves, is a big part of the watch’s character, and feel a little bit like retro-throw back to some 1980s – 1990s models. The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Caliber 5 300meter watches, while maintaining the studded bezel, do so in a less prominent way than in 2014, as the ceramic takes precedence. Beyond the ceramic bezel, however, there is still more to the 2015 TAG Heuer Aquaracer Caliber 5.

The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Caliber 5 is an attractive, modern package at a competitive price bringing you the look and solid performance of real dive watch with the high-tech appeal of carbon. Designed for diving but a solid ally on terra firma, the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Caliber 5 new carbon inspired personality will resonate with urbanites who don’t miss a beat with the latest trends.
