TAG Heuer’s Night Diver Resurfaces
Alongside two new Aquaracer Professional 300s.
Following on the launch of the new Aquaracer Professional 300 series, unveiled at Watches and Wonders Geneva in April, TAG Heuer has revived an icon in the all-black, lume dialled Aquaracer Professional 300 Night Diver.
The Night Diver – first introduced in the mid-1980s – was well-loved by active and style-conscious watch buyers.
The timepiece also has a special place in the heart of Bond fans, marking the first time a TAG Heuer was worn by 007 in Tim Dalton’s debut as the MI6 agent in The Living Daylights.
Today’s Aquaracer Professional 300 collection retains the signature details of the much-loved watch, including the famous 12-sided bezel and horizontal engraved lines.
The heady trio unveiled – of which the Night Diver is a part of – takes the Aquaracer Professional 300 collection to 11 references, each addition boasting a 43mm stainless steel case, rubber strap and TAG Heuer’s innovative adjustable folding clasp.
The Night Diver sees a black DLC-coating upon its stainless -steel case, bezel, crown, caseback and clasp. The bezel insert is highly resistant black ceramic.
Further, the Night Diver’s fully luminescent dial is coated in green Super-LumiNova delivers exceptional glow-in-the-dark performance ensuring legibility in the depths of a dive.
Elsewhere in the new release arrive black and blue versions. That pick up on the bracelet models introduced at Watches and Wonders: both are colour-themed with matching black or blue dials, ceramic bezel inserts and rubber straps.
The three new Aquaracer Professional 300 references are powered by TAG Heuer’s Calibre 5 automatic movement. They all have solid casebacks stamped with the famous scaphander diving suit, complete with a 12-sided faceplate. All Aquaracer Professional 300 models are water-resistant to 300 metres.
