TAG Heuer Aquaracer 500M Leonardo DiCaprio Limited Edition Puts Eternity in Wearer’s Hand

2 Comments

By wearing the Aquaracer 500M Leonardo DiCaprio Limited Edition you are helping preserve a bit of eternity on earth for all of us thanks to an amazing environmental partnership between DiCaprio and TAG Heuer.

To see a world in a grain of sand,

And a heaven in a wild flower,

Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,

And eternity in an hour.  William Blake

When you wear the Aquaracer 500M Leonardo DiCaprio Limited Edition you are helping preserve a bit of eternity on earth of all for us thanks to an amazing environmental partnership between DiCaprio and TAG Heuer (see previous article for further details).  The watch was designed by DiCaprio to raise money in support of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Green Cross International, two of the most influential and effective environmental organizations in the world.

This unisex watch is striking, most of all for its electric blue dial with crisscross lines representing the earth’s meridians. The indexes are hand applied as is the TAG Heuer logo.  A Natural Resource Defense Council version of the watch has the NRDC logo at six o’clock.  A date window with magnifying glass at nine o’clock is standard on all versions.  The watch hands have a polished finish, and the second hand sports a slim triangle at one end, making it easier for you to count the seconds as eternity slips away.

A shiny blue epoxy coats the timepiece’s unidirectional turning bezel in fine brushed steel with fine-brushed stainless steel numbers. Equally handsome is the contrast between the case’s fine brushed steel and polished edges.

The watch is shown with a blue rubber strap (with solid steel clasp) embossed with a checkered decoration and TAG Heuer logo, but is also available in a three row steel bracelet.

True to the watch’s aquatic heritage, the Aquaracer 500M Leonardo DiCaprio Limited Edition has everything you would expect in a TAG Heuer – an automatic helium valve at ten o’clock, water resistance to 500 meters, a scratch resistant sapphire crystal with antireflective treatment applied to the inside and a scratch resistance sapphire case back.

Carrying both elements of sea and sky within its majestic  blue countenance, a vivid reminder of the awesome beauty of our planet, and the courage and foresight of those fighting to save it, the TAG Heuer Aquaracer 500M Leonardo DiCaprio Limited Edition is a watch for all time.
