Women's Aquaracer Two Toned Diamond Watch

Silver or gold?  It’s an age-old quandary.  You don’t have to choose between the two anymore with the sporty but stylish TAG Heuer Women’s Aquaracer Two Toned Diamond Watch WAF1425.BB0825.  If you enjoy both the cool gleam of silver and gold’s warm glow, TAG Heuer designed this stainless steel, plated gold, and diamond watch for you.

This timepiece is anything but plain.  The striking contrast of steel and gold forces your attention from the dial’s golden hands to the gold links running through the silver bracelet. Round diamonds in gold settings glisten at each hour, with the exception of 12 o’clock, where numerals stand, and 3 o’clock, where a date window appears. A white mother of pearl dial holds its own against the amber luster of circular bezel.

This watch’s arresting quality comes from the sudden deviations that both please and awaken the senses.  The stark contrast in material makes this watch more unique than elegant, but the luxury of the piece remains uncontested.  Admiring this watch’s dazzle, you’ll hardly notice it doubles as a sports watch, with a unidirectional turning bezel and water resistance to 300 meters.  In terms of size, the watch fits comfortably, with a 27 mm case and 14 mm wide bracelet.  You won’t have to make the hard choice of wearing silver or gold accessories since this watch is dressed to match both.  Whether you’re sporting jeans or a business suit, you’ll find this watch captures the spotlight.

If you are searching for a design that’s not so bold, you don’t have far to go.  The Aquaracer collection offers an array of timepieces that boast polished and brushed steel bracelets, a choice selection of dials, and silver/diamond-encrusted bezels.  If you’re tied to two toned but want a more muted look, move to the Link collection, which casts gold in a more supporting role. In the Link line, $2,800 will buy you the same diamond accents of the Aquaracer, and $4,600 will spread their sparkle around the bezel.  If sporty and pronounced luxury defines you, however, you’ve already found your match in TAG Heuer’s Women’s Aquaracer Two Toned Diamond Watch WAF1425.BB0825 at $2,700 (We found this tag here for $2160.)
