The Tag Heuer Aquaracer WAJ2150 bears all the hallmarks of a quintessential premium tool dive watch, but with a shockingly arrogant difference: a solid rose gold bezel insert. It looks like a ludicrous inclusion on what is essentially a superbly designed sports dive watch, but it’s a gamble that pays off very well in my opinion. The duality of the watch’s design hits you instantly: on the one hand the watch has a stark industrial-ruggedized look, which is superbly balanced with a richly engraved dial and a soft rose gold bezel.
Rugged and Classy
The classic good looks of the Aquaracer’s angular body are due to its well-proportioned form and shape. At 43mm diameter and 14mm thickness, the watch is sized just right: the body wraps beautifully around my nearly 8-inch wrist. It looks perfectly cast instead of the droopy and falling-off-your wrists look that many over-sized watches tend to give. I’m not a big fan of the Cyclops sitting atop the date window, and I’d much rather have all the crystal area dedicated to viewing the superb dial. Of course I hate the Cyclops because I don’t dive much, and the magnifier is there to give the watch impeccable diving credentials: it can do depths of 500M, and has a Helium Valve for deep diving missions.
