Strap it on for your surf, swim, leisure dive or even scuba diving; and you’ll instantly know that it’s not all just on paper: this timepiece is the real deal when it comes to sports.
You can’t also miss the gorgeous exterior design of this watch, featuring varying colorways but giving the ultimate vibe of being at sea. Its fabulous look is all thanks to the refined detailing of the brand, ensuring all aspects are at their best state. A few honorable mentions include the blue ceramic bezel, the lume-capable hands, the shiny sides of the case (sometimes bedazzled too!) and the case back, which all contribute to the handsome look of this sportswatch.
A slightly questionable choice for TAG Heuer is that the Aquaracer 300M, like its brothers in the long-time chronometer line, isn’t certified by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute, COSC. Although it proves its performance and accuracy, there is some authority to watches recognized and certified by the COSC. But as they say, to each their own. TAG Heuer believes is better to save their customers a considerable amount of money instead of having their timepieces certified.
