Today’s article is dedicated to the new Tag Heuer Aquaracer Camouflage watch, which will be presented on BaselWorld 2017. Swiss manufacturer will also show several other models, but I want to start with this one, which is finished in grey-blue camouflage and offers new view on classic Aquracer model.

Now let’s take a closer look at what new Tag Heuer Aquaracer Camouflage can offer. Case will be made out of titanium, so you can expect new model to be lightweight and durable. Moreover, it’s waterproof up to 300m, so newcomer won’t fail even under water. Manufacturer claims that besel is scratch resistant, so we will try it in Basel. 😉 Another notable design cue – matt black PVD treatment which is suitable for overall military topic. Camouflage was inspired by Tundra pattern and looks truly cool. Of course, you won’t wear such watch with suit (or would you?), but it’s appearance is just eye-stopping. Take a careful look at strap. This is classic NATO-strap, but for camo version Tag Heuer decided to invent a custom pattern, which is woven by combining threads of different colors. Final result? You can see it on the photo. Second version is designed in a different way, but still in military style. Yes, it’s whole green khaki, note that bezel is also green as well as strap, while casing is black.
Both models feature automatic movement and dial covered with superluminova. Well, now you can be in trend with one of those watches, which combine military style and Swiss precision. I just wonder if it is possible to do whole casing in camouflage with black bezel. Just imagine how such watch would look like! Now let’s wait until personal test, when we will be able to share our first impressions.
Oh, and price will be equal to 2500 EUR / 2800 USD
