Aquaracer Full Black made its time honored debut in 2010 as TAG Heuer’s sturdy PVD diver watch to join ranks among its Aquaracer 500m watch collection.
Aquaracer Full Black striking features include a brushed finished PVD coated titanium case with a ridged bezel that showcases metal numbers in increments of 10. The dial is black with a vertical ribbed effect. It has bright yellow-green luminescent hour indicators, hour/minute and seconds hands which contrast well against the watch’s black background. It also features a magnified date window at 9 o’clock and a helium escape valve, all of which are signature features of the 500m Aquaracer watch line.
Aquaracer Full Black (Reference No. WAJ2180.FT6015) boasts being a light weight watch at only 98 grams as opposed to the typical stainless steel version that weighs 130 grams. This light weight is due to its high grade titanium construction which is complimentary of TAG Heuer’s clever use of materials in its diver collection of watches.
Aquaracer Full Black sports a 43mm diameter case which also bears the Aquaracer 500m signature shape. It has a rotating diver’s bezel which has a rubber insert and is surrounded by metal numbers (a.k.a. TAG Heuer’s “soft touch” bezel, which should not be misconstrued as being a soft rubber material) and a rubber crown as well. The bezel also displays a yellow-green luminescent dot at the 60 minute mark of the bezel.
Aquaracer Full Black houses the Calibre 5 automatic movement, which is found in many of TAG Heuers three hand automatic watches and its Aquaracer 500m watches. Aquaracer Full Black is water resistant up to 500 meters and is adorned with a TAG Heuer textured rubber strap that has a deployment locking clasp.
While the first Aquaracer Full Black may not be available for purchase today, fans of this timepiece need not fret as TAG Heuer offers the Aquaracer 500m watch in quite an extensive collection of styles and as well as a Aquaracer 500m Full Black chronograph version.
TAG Heuer’s Aquaracer 500m watches continue to evolve, as does TAG Heuer use of materials and designs for it Aquaracer 500m collection.
