This replica TAG Heuer Aquaracer 500M Calibre 5 WAJ2110.BA0870 watch features the standard brushed stainless steel finish you’d expect to find on a watch of this type but the designers have given other elements of this watch a very unique look. The watch dial for example instead of being a flat surface is actually textured/raised so it breaks up the monotonous aesthetic shared by most luxury watches. On top of that the bezel itself also features a radial textured surface which complements the watch dial itself and also makes this watch stand out from the crowd. Last but not least the crown of this watch is textured but we would imagine this is more a case of providing ease-of-use instead of making a statement of style.
When you intend spending several thousand dollars on a watch of any kind it’s always a comfort to know the “bloodline” of the company behind it and with TAG Heuer you’re investing in the result of more than 150 years of work by some of the finest artisans and engineers in the world. Heuer are one of the oldest watch manufacturers in the world and that historicity shines through in every single watch they create. From a collectors point of view it’s also worth noting at this point that the TAG Heuer Aquaracer 500M compares more than favorably with the Omega Sea Master and Planet Ocean series of watches, which no doubt will be a factor in your final choice of watch.
The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Calibre 5 also features an automatic movement which simply means that your watch is powered by the movement of your body, which when you think about it is really an ingenious feat of manufacturing. From an environmental point of view it also means you’ll never have to replace a battery in this watch and from a personal point of view you’ll never need to worry about having to wind this watch either. Swiss watches with automatic movements will require a service every 2-3 years to ensure that the mechanism behind this feature is functioning properly.
Being water-resistant to a depth of 1,650 feet means that you can truly consider this TAG Aquaracer Calibre 5 watch to be a diver’s watch although it is important to stress that water-resistant and water-proof are two entirely different concepts. It’s also worth remembering that even though this TAG Heuer Calibre 5 watch is capable of being used on dives of this depth you’re also diving wearing a thousand dollars watch on your wrist. The stainless steel construction of this water lends itself very well to durability and the analog only display also features luminous hour markers and hands – they do glow but may not be up the conditions of a very deep dive. The watch dial is covered with a dome of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal for safety and the calendar/date function is located at the 9 0’clock position on the dial itself. For additional security of attachment the bracelet band on this watch features a double push-button, fold over safety clasp.
