Since TAG Heuer relaunched its beloved luxury tool watch last year, the codes for sports watch design and performance have been rewritten, allowing wearers to push their limits in search of greater performance. The new chapter of the Aquaracer Professional 300 offers a clean, colorful take on the GMT function. This is the ultimate go-anywhere watch with a powerful, yet hugely versatile design, created to cross time zones across the globe.

One of the most immediately striking things about this luxury tool watch is its stylish blue and yellow color palette. These casual shades were carefully selected by TAG Heuer’s designers to represent the sky, the sun, the water and the crashing waves near the shore. This aesthetic allows for this to be the perfect all-day, every-day companion for surfers and divers who travel the world in search of the perfect break and the most spectacular underwater habitats.

What ties this new iteration to previous generations of the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional family is the iconic 12-sided bezel.

As with the core TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300, the case back of the new watch is cast in steel and decorated with a repeating hexagon motif and the famous scaphander diving suit that also first appeared on the TAG Heuer Aquaracer case in 2004. Another symbol of the exacting attention to detail applied to the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional family of watches is that they have been engineered so the case back sits square, meaning the scaphander is always upright.

The new Aquaracer Professional 300 GMT offers two different looks for its wearers – the first, a stainless steel metal bracelet, the second, a deep midnight blue rubber strap to match the dial and bezel. Both feature TAG Heuer’s ergonomic fine adjustment system so that the watch can easily be tailored to fit over a wetsuit and back again, or simply to accommodate comfort changes as temperatures rise or fall. The watch’s designers have endeavored to follow in Jack Heuer’s footsteps to ensure optimal legibility for this maritime timepiece.

With all those aesthetic details, each chosen to maximise the watch’s performance, the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 GMT needed an ultra-reliable movement, too. Inside the watch therefore is TAG Heuer‘s Caliber 7, a Swiss Made automatic with a power reserve of up to 50 hours. It also provides the watch with its date function, centred at 6 o’clock and indicated under a ‘Cyclops’ magnifier.
