This 300 version of the TAG Heuer Aquaracer only debuted back in 2021, but the real heritage behind this model can be traced back to 1978 when Jack Heuer developed reference 844. Its origin story was crafted with adventure in mind and now the brand has expand this collection with an orange dial to stand out among the ocean blue, making it a great summer watch.The 43mm case is made of stainless-steel with vertically brushed surfaces and polished accents. While mounted to the case is a unidirectional steel rotating bezel.Engraved on the bezel's black ceramic insert is a 60-minute scale, counted out by 10’s, excluding the 60-minute marker for the iconic triangular index marker (doubling its function as part of a rotating scale).On the flip-side we encounter a solid steel case back which has been engraved with the iconic Aquaracer diver helmet.It comes equipped with a knurled screw-in steel setting-crown, embossed with the TAG Heuer logo. All topped by a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating, which also assists with water-resistance on this watch reaching up to 300 meters (1,000 feet).Time is exhibited on an orange dial with steel-applied hour index markers, followed by a ring of black printed minute/seconds markers circling the periphery of the dial.The charismatic stepped pattern we’ve grown accustomed to seeing on the Aquaracer is also present on this edition.On the upper-half dial is the “AQUARACER” inscription and TAG Heuer logo, while the lower-half highlights the “AUTOMATIC” movement and water-resistance. There is also a round date aperture at the 6 o’clock position with a magnifier underneath the glass, in order to keep a smooth outer surface.The central sword-shaped stainless-steel hands and hour index markers have all been fitted with contrasting blue and green luminescent coatings, for an enhanced legibility.
