TAG Heuer AQUARACER Camouflage 300 Metres, Calibre 5

TAG Heuer expands its AQUARACER watch series with two Commando styled watches.  Available in two versions - Arctic and Jungle - the Aquaracer Camouflage suits for all kinds of extreme conditions, not just diving and other seafaring activities.
Water-resistant to 300 metres, the robust lightweight case is machined from Grade 2 titanium with a matt black PVD treatment to reinforce its stealth effect, as nothing must catch the light or the enemy's eye.
The bezel has a minute track (graduated every minute for the first 15 minutes) and is made from matt black ceramic, which is also particularly scratch-resistant.
To complete these two models, TAG Heuer has chosen a NATO strap, tone-on-tone to match the dials.
For the "Arctic" model, TAG Heuer has developed a custom pattern, which is woven with threads of different colours, to ensure both that it is hard-wearing and that the colours are uniform.
For the "Khaki" model, the watch is complemented by a military green fabric strap, with top-stitching details.
