About the Tag Heuer Aquaracer for Men

Updated April 17, 2017

The Aquaracer is a wristwatch model produced by Tag Heuer, a brand known for style, quality and accuracy of time. Endorsed by a number of high-profile celebrities, Tag Heuer watches exemplify value with the motto "Swiss Avant-Garde since 1860." The Aquaracer continues in this tradition. For water sports and athletes--both men and women--the Aquaracer is water resistant.


Tag Heuer has dubbed its water sports watch, the Aquaracer, the "epitome of a sports watch." The Tag Heuer Aquaracer line is based on features of the original 2000 series, which was launched in 1982. Designers for Tag Heuer have recreated this watch to be reminiscent of the past. The watch is also water resistant for depths of up to 300 meters.


The Tag Heuer Aquaracer is offered in ten basic styles. The watch models range from the Quartz chronographs and automatic watches to the Chronotimer, which has countdown and calendar alarm options. The styles offer varying physical characteristics in terms of the watch face, links, colour, material, hand movement, dimension and coating.

Limited Edition

The Leonardo DiCaprio Limited Edition Aquaracer is also available for those looking for something a little out of the ordinary. The limited edition watch comes with two bracelet options: an electric blue rubber strap with waffle imprints, complete with a steel clasp, or a three-row brushed steel bracelet. The face of the watch is electric blue and features a magnified date window. Water resistance on the Leonard DiCaprio Limited Edition Aquaracer complies with a depth of 500 meters.


Tag Heuer watches are "highly technical products" and come with a two-year international warranty against defects or failures in functionality. Tag Heuer watches in need of repair must be sent to a Tag Heuer authorised service centre. Once the watches are fixed, they are sent back to the consumer with a "one-year warranty on the work carried out." The company website offers an in-depth look at the manufactures warranty.

History of the Company

Tag Heuer, a Swiss-based company, was founded in 1860 by Edouard Heuer. Heuer acquired his first chronograph patent in 1882, though he didn't patent the first wrist chronograph until 1914. In 1887, Heuer patented the oscillating pinion that many watch companies still use today. A Tag Heuer wristwatch is known for its ability to be "accurate to 1/10th, 1/100th and 1/1000th of a second." The Tag Heuer headquarters are situated in Chaux-De-Fonds, Switzerland.
