I was attracted to the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200 Replica. This reference features a blue dial, a 40mm stainless steel case and an automatic movement, the tried and tested Calibre 5. The brand kindly offered to provide me with a sample of the watch and a week-long period of evaluation soon ensued.
The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200 Date is available with a black or blue dial. Moreover, the various hues presented morph into other tones of blue depending on the available light. The dynamic quality of the dial surface proves fascinating to behold.
The hands and indexes on the Luxury Aquaracer Professional 200 Replica have received a liberal application of Super-LumiNova. The indexes and the hour hand exhibit a green glow in dim light, while the minute hand and the lollipop affixed to the central sweep seconds hand emit a contrasting shade of blue. With regard to the central sweep seconds hand, the design looks identical to the Aquaracer Professional 300, one of the few details the siblings share in common.
A date display is located at 6 o’clock instead of the more common 3 o’clock position, granting a more symmetrical appearance. This is a design philosophy the brand is introducing on all new models moving forward. Unlike the 300, there is no magnifying lens sitting above the date disc. Moreover, the date disc is black, not white. Certainly, there is little evidence that any bean counting has taken place.
With a Best divers’ replica watch, dimensions are inextricably linked to water resistance. As the wearer ventures deeper underwater, the prevailing pressure increases and the exterior of the watch case is subject to greater, potentially crushing forces. In order to explore depths of say 500m, a bulkier case may prove necessary.
Like many individuals, I’m a ‘desk diver’ and highly unlikely to wear a wetsuit and strap a scuba tank to my back. However, the reason why I, and legions of other horophiles, adore divers’ watches is that they prove robust, highly legible and offer a useful degree of water resistance.
The case predominantly features vertically brushed surfaces, but the thin bevelled edge at the top of the caseband is highly polished. This subtle detail heightens productions costs, but it also enriches the overall appearance. Moreover, this strip of brightwork endows the Genuine Fake Watches Online head with a seemingly slimmer profile.
To the rear of the case, the caseback of the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200 Date sports a compass rose motif in place of the diver’s helmet engraving found on the 300.
The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200 Date is presented on a 3-rows bracelet. The outer rows are finely brushed, while the central row is highly polished. This arrangement is replicated on the folding clasp. A small criticism of the clasp is that the central area is liable to pick up the odd superficial scratch.
Both the 200 and 300 share the same self-winding movement, the elegant replica watches Calibre 5 Automatic. This movement has remained unchanged for some time and is widely known for its reliability. Both models are fitted with a solid caseback, as divers’ watch convention dictates, therefore, I have been unable to critique the finishing of the movement.
The balance has a frequency of 28,800 vph (4Hz) and, assuming the mainspring is fully wound, the movement will run autonomously for 38 hours.
