Hands-On: 2021 TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Calirbe 5 Automatic Collection Replica

The biggest noteworthy change on the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 replica watches can be seen on the dial

The new TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 replica watch (ref. WBP201B.BA0632) maintains the same profile as the previous model, but there is no doubt that the new watch represents an important step in the Aquaracer series. Remodeled and polished case, redesigned back cover, new bracelet and rubber strap, updated dial, new hands and modified bezel. This is a long list. Therefore, they are both familiar and brand new.

The Dial

The biggest noteworthy change on the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 replica watches can be seen on the dial, which is now more refined and balanced. Two things drive this change. First and foremost is the scale and shape of the indices and the hands. The indices are now smaller and have now been presented as a combination of applied octagons and trapezoids. The hour and minute hands now have a sword-style shape instead of the batons seen on the existing models.

Second and more importantly, the date window has now been shifted from the 3 O’clock to the 6 O’clock position making the dial look more symmetrical than before. Apart from this, the dial still features a printed minute track and horizontal stripes with a sunburst effect that have been a signature design highlight of replica TAG Heuer Aquaracer watches for a while now. Having said that, the vintage-inspired Tribute to Ref. 844 drops the horizontal stripe pattern for a matt black textured dial with a 24-hour scale in red. Also, to emit a vintage vibe, the indices and hands in this variant have been filled with custard-colored luminous paint.

The Case

Although the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer replica comes in two different case sizes, we focus on the larger size. The 43mm wide steel cases (the smaller being 36mm) retain the Aquaracer look, which has been refined and updated to modern standards. The steel case and bracelet models come in three different colours: blue, black and silver dials, all with a sunray-brushed finish. The blue and black dials are matched with a blue or black ceramic bezel insert, but the silver dial receives a healthy dose of contrast with a black insert. The bezel is still the 12-sided shape the Aquaracer is known for, yet more refined. No longer featuring the claws on top, it now has a fluted edge for a better grip and a more discreet look.

The steel case for the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer blue watch replica has been enhanced with brushed finishing on the top and sides of the case, alternated with polished chamfers. The edge for the bezel is also polished to set it off against the case. The dial for each new Aquaracer has been updated too, yet still has the horizontal pattern on the dial that is a trademark for the collection. While previously using faceted rectangular hour markers, TAG Heuer has changed them to octagonal applied markers filled with Super-LumiNova. The shape is reminiscent of the hour markers on the 2004 TAG Heuer 2000 Aquaracer, albeit those were actually round. 

The sword-shaped hands have been redesigned and now feature a single luminous insert instead of the previous segmented ones. Furthermore, the cyclops has been moved to the underside of the crystal instead of on top for a smooth look and feel. The last element that is noteworthy is the finely reshaped crown guards, more in line with the overall refined case. 

The Bracelet

The Aquaracer replica rubber straps have been upgraded, with what feels like a softer rubber than previous models, and a new folding mechanism, which is nicely finished with polished surfaces. Apart from looking smart, the new clasp allows for micro-adjustment of 1.5 cm and works very well- intuitive and sturdy.

There are three new rubber straps- the standard strap in either black (FT6197) or blue (FT6198) and a special rubber strap for the 844 Edition. This strap- FT6201- is inspired by the late 1970s Tropic straps, featuring a grained surface and with dodecagon perforations. The bracelet has also been refreshed- a similar look, but lighter, and again features the same folding clasp with the micro adjustments.

The Movement

Beating inside the new Aquaracer Professional 300 replica is the trustworthy calibre 5 which is based on the Sellita SW 200-1 and offers a power reserve of around 38 hours. The movement operates at 4 Hz and is hidden underneath a closed case back which has been decorated with a deeply stamped motif of a diver’s helmet. The limited-edition variant also gets the number engraved on the back.
