Tag Heuer’s New Aquaracer GMT Is A Luxurious Take On The Tool Watch
The updated version of the highly functional timepiece features a two-tone bezel and tells time in two locales at once.
The idea behind the tool watch is simple: Withstand extreme conditions without missing a beat or dropping a second. The push to improve upon the tool watch design, especially one like the famed Tag Heuer Aquaracer, shouldn’t be undertaken lightly, and the new Tag Heuer Aquaracer 300 GMT looks to rise to the occasion.
The latest from Tag Heuer — a brand recently seen on the wrist of Ryan Gosling in The Gray Man — throws everything but the kitchen sink, so to speak, into its latest go-anywhere watch.
The Aquaracer gets souped up with the addition of GMT utility, a fourth hand that allows the wearer to tell the time in two locations at once.
The GMT hand in particular is finished in yellow lacquer for a shot of contrast — it stands out against the deep blue dial in a nod to the sun and the sky.
The bold two-tone, uni-directional bezel is joined by other classic Aquaracer features, including a screw-down crown and double safety clasp for wearability and performance on water and in land.
The bezel itself was designed in two tones to represent daytime (white for 6 o’clock in the morning until 6-o’clock in the evening, and deep midnight blue for the inverse).
It’s also bolstered by 300 meters of water resistance, and both the stainless steel bracelet and the companion midnight blue rubber strap are designed to fit over a wetsuit — to say this is a tool watch that can go anywhere might be an understatement.
Within the watch, you’ll find the company’s Swiss-made Calibre 7 automatic movement, complete with date functionality and featuring a power reserve of 50 hours (more than enough time to jetset across the globe using its GMT functionality).
Tag Heuer fittingly calls the timepiece the “ultimate luxury tool watch,” and wisely notes that it seamlessly marries “the demands of utility and luxury in perfect unison.”
