The acclaimed Watches and Wonders fair, an event eagerly anticipated by the major players in the watch industry, was held from 30 March to 5 April 2022 in Geneva, Switzerland. This huge watch industry convention was a chance to exhibit in the shortest time possible most of the latest releases from many of the world’s most important watch manufacturers.
To be specific, this article takes a closer look at the main new releases by one of the major brands, TAG HEUER.
WHAT’S NEW BY TAG HEUER
This year, TAG HEUER presented six new models at the event held in Geneva: the Monaco Gulf Special Edition, the Aquaracer Professional 300 Orange Diver, the Carrera x Porsche Limited Edition, the Aquaracer Professional 200 Solargraph, the Aquaracer Professional 1000 Superdiver and the Carrera Plasma Diamant D’Avant Garde.
TAG HEUER MONACO GULF SPECIAL EDITION
For the 2022 edition, continuing on with its long-time collaboration with GULF, the piece is equipped with the in-house HEUER 02 movement, a first in the Monaco Gulf edition. TAG HEUER is aweing enthusiasts with a more striking, more refined version of the in-house HEUER 02 movement contained in the finely brushed and polished steel case.
A truly attractive piece.
TAG HEUER AQUARACER PROFESSIONAL 300 ORANGE DIVER
Taking its cues from the Orange Diver Ref. 844, an all-time favourite, this watch shares the same codes as its predecessors: a luxury tool watch that brings out the adventurer in all watch enthusiasts. It features its essential orange colour contrasting with a striking blue colour to feel closer to the ocean.
TAG HEUER CARRERA X PORSCHE LIMITED EDITION
A model defined by its sporty look and feel – a limited edition. The chronograph’s sporty design is made even more stunning by the aesthetic appeal of Porsche. The timepiece’s yellow accents are a nod to Porsche’s racing colour. An independent and powerful mindset for this new 2022 model.
TAG HEUER AQUARACER PROFESSIONAL 200 SOLARGRAPH
The sun, a limitless source of energy, inspired the creation of this new model, which incorporates the innovative solar module called Solargraph. No battery changes are required; it recharges with solar or artificial light. Light that also illuminates the Super LumiNova on the watch’s bezel, dial and hands, making the timepiece readable both day and night.
TAG HEUER AQUARACER PROFESSIONAL 1000 SUPERDIVER
Created for deep diving and with exceptional performance. As the first watch to use calibre TH30-00 produced by Kenissi Manufacture SA, it is a milestone for TAG HEUER. Thanks to its helium valve, the watch was designed to work in saturation diving and to resist the most extreme pressures. It earned ISO 6425 certification for saturation diving watches. It features a custom protective case that is as resistant as the watch as well as a rescue dive torch.
TAG HEUER CARRERA PLASMA DIAMANT D’AVANT GARDE
D’AVANT GARDE technology combined with a disruptive design. Lab-grown diamonds, a major milestone in the brand’s more than 160-year-old history. A new way of mastering design and the play of light with material and the versatility of the diamonds allows for unbounded creativity. Cutting-edge aesthetics, versatility and design codes have the power to make a watch truly unique. An example of the company’s avant-garde, innovative spirit.
From this outstanding event, we can draw two conclusions about the TAG HEUER brand and collectors of these luxury watches will understand the brand’s two main goals for 2022: INNOVATION AND CUTTING-EDGE STYLE. The new releases presented are set to lead the watch market with these amazing new models.
