The most eye-catching aspect of the new 35mm Aquaracer models is the splash of blue – a deep and enchanting shade that evokes feelings of blissful days spent relaxing on a yacht. The blue dial has a reflective sunray effect and engraved sand-wave pattern reminiscent of the gentle waves lapping on the sandy shores of a tropical beach. The stainless-steel models with a blue dial are presented on a stainless-steel bracelet or rubber strap in the same shade of blue. The cross-hatched pattern on the strap mimics the texture of sailing ropes, a touch that highlights its seafaring pedigree. The rubber strap is ideal for water sports because it is durable, comfortable, lightweight and waterproof. The third model in the collection has an elegant mother-of-pearl dial and is also presented on a blue rubber strap. A date window at 3 o’clock is found on the dial of all three models.
The Aquaracer has always been a sports watch, and its robust design and wide range of functions make it a reliable tool on land, out on the ocean and below the waves. These three new quartz-powered models are no different. Each one has the six standard features of any Aquaracer wristwatch: unidirectional rotating bezel, sapphire crystal, screw-down crown, water resistance to 300 m (30 bar), luminescent hands and markers, and a double security clasp on the bracelet or strap.
