Tired of high-fashion men’s watches looking clunky? If so, then the Tag Heuer Aquaracer WAF1015.BA0822 will not only bring a sense of elegance back to your wardrobe, but also peace of mind. You really can have a watch that is both practical and trendy – and for a fraction of the cost of most brand-name timepieces.

Like many luxury watches, this Aquaracer is designed to be scratch-proof, non-reflective, and water resistant due to the sapphire-crystal cover on the watch face. The watch’s frame and bezel are both  brushed steel that will resist discoloration and rust for years to come. Due to the texture of the watch and band, smudges will not appear on the silver surface and thus, the watch is a low-maintenance accessory that men with busy schedules won’t need to fret over. The watch hands are both luminescent for easy access in night hours and along the face of the circular clock, numerical values indicating the minute make it easy to translate the dashes and dots of  the upscale timepiece. The WAF1015.BA0822 comes with a lifetime battery replacement plan as well as a three year warranty for replacement, so there is no danger of your investment being lost.

As mentioned above, this model is water resistant – where most watches tend to be only be resistant up to 100-150 feet, the WAF1015.BA0822 can still safely function up to 1000. Whether you are an active man that enjoys water-oriented sports or you simply live in a rainy place, rest assured that your watch is as durable as you are. The band is adjustable and comes with its own complimentary fitting upon purchase. The latch is a simple deployment buckle, which makes taking it on and off a breeze.

This watch has given critics a run for their money. There are very few true problems with it and frankly, the battery is likely to run out before you encounter any problems with the mechanics of the clock itself. Like all deployment buckles, however, be certain to treat the latch carefully and not warp its casing, or else fixing it will require a professional.

For the money-conscious man, the price may be a bit over-reaching. While the retail value of the  WAF1015.BA0822 is $1,700, many online stores featured on both Yahoo and Google are currently running sales on this product. Some of them for more than 35% off. While purchasing directly from Tag Heuer keeps the price fairly steep, this watch becomes more affordable the further from the source that you search. In some cases this is a good buy, on others, consumers should be wary of the fact that with price reductions, things like the warranty or free wrist-fitting may no longer be included in your package deal.

Guys, keep an eye out for future items in the Aquaracer line; it promises quality and a handsome design that could prove to be timeless.
