It is well known to all that TAG Heuer is passionate and persistent on the car races, but rare people know that it has the same dedication on exploring the Ocean and making the professional diver watches. One thing needs to be mentioned is that Heuer filed patents for its diver watchers in 195 and rolled out the first water-resistant watch in 1939. After the Heuer 2000 series met the public in 1982, it had stepped into the circle of top diver watch makers. In 2002, Heuer passed the strict tests from SEAL Team, a great movement and thus heightening its skills into a higher level. Today, what we are going to introduce is the the Heuer Aquaracer 500 meters’ series which replayed the 2000’s styles.
Heuer WAJ2182.FT6015 has a fashion appearance and its case was made of Titanium with a thinner layer of titanium carbide wrapping on the surface. Although the color is not so flashy, the overall feel of it is perfect. The bracelet is made of rubber which is processed uniquely and specially designed for underwater activities. Anti-dazzling mirror made of sapphire make the reading clearer to be read and so hard that only diamond can leave scratches on it. The screw-in crown is black and has Heuer’s logo on it. The helium valve at 10 o’clock is processed with dull polished to make it more rough.
Heuer WAJ2182.FT6015 is alsmot similar to other diver watches, except the 500 meters’ depth make the minor difference as the ordinary depth are 300 meters or 600 meters. The date is on the left side of the dial which is protruding. Helium valve at ten o’clock can keep helium from entering the case so that it can works properly. The single rotating bezel can measure diving time.
The inner structure is the movement. It uses Heuer Calibre 5 automatic winding movement with a 26 mm of diameter and quick adjustment on date can be done. 38 hours of power reserve, anyway, is a little bit short so it is better for daily use. Among so many diver watches, Heuer WAJ2182.FT6015 can be regarded as having an excellent appearance, in addition to Breitling, Omega and Rolex, but considering the price, Heuer WAJ2182.FT6015 has its edges.
