TAG Heuer News: The Aquaracer Carbon Special Editions Come to New York City

TAG Heuer is an incredible brand, and we see a lot of TAG Heuer watches as one of the best watch repair shops in NYC for TAG Heuer. It’s one of our favorite brands. What brings people to the TAG Heuer brand? Well, it’s the unique sense of style, especially Sport. An example would be the Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer 01 available in a limited “Tom Brady” edition.  For those who love football, love the Patriots, love TAG Heuer, this watch is an example of how TAG Heuer blends sport and watches. (Only 460 have been made!).  Another series we’d like to draw your attention to is the Aquaracer Carbon Series. These watches really bring the rugged, sporty part of the TAG Heuer brand to the forefront. It’s worth clicking over to the official brand page to check it out.

Tag Heuer’s collaboration with watch customization maestro George Bamford, announced earlier this year at Baselworld, resulted in the launch of the much-discussed carbon-cased Monaco Bamford special edition.

The Aquaracer Carbon editions are the latest to emerge from the collaboration between TAG Heuer and Bamford Watch Studio. The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Carbon draws the eye with its 41-mm-diameter, black PVD-coated titanium case and imitation carbon-printed dials, which are highlighted with hints of blue, yellow, or rose gold depending on the model. The carbon material used for the watch’s unidirectional divers’ bezel is created by a random injection of carbon fibers into a resin pressed at high temperatures to achieve the black-and-gray marbled motif that differs slightly on each finished component, essentially making each watch in this collection a unique piece. The use of grade 5 titanium, with matte black PVD coating, as the case material means that the timepieces are as durable and scratch-resistant as they are lightweight, in addition to being water-resistant to 300 meters.

And then –

The bezel combines carbon and matte black PVD-coated steel, and is inscribed with the 60-minute scale characteristic of the Aquaracer and most of its dive-watch brethren. The screw-down crown at 3 o’clock is also made of matte-black steel, while the screw-on caseback is in PVD-coated titanium. The faceted indices and hour and minute hands are are polished and lacquered in rose gold, on the model pictured above, or plated with black gold, on the yellow- and blue-highlighted models, below, and treated with gray Super-LumiNova. The date window at 3 o’clock features a magnifying lens for easy reading in the depths or in the other low light conditions.

The watches are equipped with TAG Heuer’s automatic Caliber 5, based on the ETA 2824-2 and possessing a 42-hour power reserve, and mounted on black nylon straps with contrast topstitching that matches the colored highlights of each model’s dial. A folding buckle in black PVD-coated grade 2 titanium, with a double safety push-button closure and a divers’ extension, completes the picture. Available as of September 1, 2018, the Aquaracer Carbon models (whose prices were not available at press time) will be sold exclusively at TAG Heuer boutiques and at

And, specifically for the Aquaracer Carbon edition – “In blue, yellow and rose gold, the TAG Heuer Aquaracer collection has expanded, with three new carbon-finish models. The random injection of its fibres into a high-temperature pressed resin creates a unique piece with an exclusive black motif mottled with grey streaks. Water-resistant to 300m and standing out with its pop colours, the Aquaracer Carbon is one of the most modern incarnations of TAG Heuer’s ultimate dive watch.”

Repairing a TAG Heuer

TAG Heuer watches being mechanical, of course, need their share of repairs and tune-ups. We see them in our New York City Tag Heuer repair shop, and we get quite a few brought in for a tune up. To keep your Tag Heuer working in tip-top condition, we recommend that you bring it into the shop at least yearly for an inspection and repair. Or, if you’re purchasing a classic Tag Heuer on the open market, you can bring it in to  us as well for an inspection before you purchase it. For a reasonable fee, we can inspect and recommend repairs. These are beautiful watches and it’s a shame to have them sit in a drawer if they’re not working, so bring your Tag Heuer into today and let us inspect and possibly repair it.
