The Swiss watchmaking company TAG Heuer may have outdone themselves this time. Their Aquaracer timepiece series–designed with divers and extreme sports enthusiasts in mind–is one of pure elegance, style, and reliability.

With a water resistance of 300m, the deep-blue color of the Aquaracer WAP1112.BA0831 could very well camouflage itself in the depths of the ocean. It also adds a nice contrast to the reflective stainless steel make of the rest of the watch. As per its design, the Aquaracer WAP1112.BA0831 comes well-equipped to handle deep-sea expeditions. Along with the aforementioned water resistance, it has a superluminova dot at the 12 o’clock mark to ensure readability 20,000 leagues under the sea. A timepiece worthy Captain Ahab himself.

But even if you don’t fancy yourself a deep-sea diver, the Aquaracer WAP1112.BA0831 will almost certainly meet your standards of durability and style. In addition to its polished brush steel case and bracelet, double clasped for maximum security, the Aquaracer WAP1112.BA0831 comes equipped with scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Cut from a polished slice of solid sapphire, the surface of this timepiece is so tough that only a diamond can scratch it. And if that somehow isn’t enough to put your anxieties to rest, it also comes with a 3-year warranty. You know, just in case it gets swallowed by a whale.

The durability of this watch is not all it has to offer, however. It is also incredibly elegant and practical. With its undirectional turning bezel, accidental movement can only reduce the indicated remaining time so you will know when you’ve accidentally turned it. It also comes with a screwdown crown and caseback, reliable, battery operated quartz movement, and an adjustable wrist-strap.

Though this timepiece is priced at a steep $1,700 USD, it may be well worth the money if you plan on never buying another watch. To recap its most notable features, the Aquaracer WAP1112.BA0831 comes with:

  • 300m water resistance
  • a stylish, deep-blue dial
  • an unscratchable sapphire crystal surface
  • a polished brush-steel case and bracelet
  • luminescent hands and markers for easy readability in the dark or underwater

All in all, the TAG Heuer Aquaracer WAP1112.BA0831 is a stylish and durable timepiece that anyone would feel proud to wear.
