All in the Name: TAG Heuer Aquaracer 500M
For those who think simple record breaking isn't enough, TAG Heuer presents the Aquaracer 500M. Water resistant to 500 meters or 1660 feet, it dares to go further than the competition, right alongside its wearer.
The new TAG Heuer Aquaracer 500M is a robust, professional-grade diving watch
featuring practical design elements that make it easy to operate both in and out of the water. It has an automatic helium valve at 10 o’clock that opens automatically to regulate pressure. This is the watch to be worn without a second thought – anytime, anywhere.
Aquaracer 500M—The Finest Hour
The TAG Aquaracer 500M is the professional diving watch of choice for those who demand performance and style in one. Tested to extremes in modern facilities in Switzerland, this watch won’t crack under pressure when plunged into the depths.
In addition to its automatic helium valve, it embraces a practical design that keeps divers in mind. The six studs on the unidirectional bezel create an easy grip for divers’ gloves, allowing for adjustments on the fly; so it’s simple to set time-limits for safe dives. What’s more, if the bezel is accidently moved, the time will be reduced, never increased.
For added safety, the TAG Aquaracer 500M’s bracelet is fitted with a double security clasp to ensure the watch stays put, together with push buttons that are simple to locate and press. The dial is also protected by a solid sapphire crystal made by fusing and crystallizing alumina; a material that can only be scratched by a diamond.
What’s more, the timepiece shines underwater and in the dark thanks to luminescent hands and indexes applied by hand in the TAG Heuer workshop. The date window is similarly magnified to increase legibility, while the crystal is given an anti-reflective treatment that makes the time plain to see.
In fact, the TAG Heuer 500M Aquaracer has nothing to hide. The sapphire crystal caseback is also a window on the movement working tirelessly within—a display made for and by genuine watch enthusiasts.

caliber allows for rapid date correction that’s ideal for active lifestyles.
