It’s certainly shaping up to be an interesting year for dive watch fans, particularly if you’ve got a penchant for big chunks of metal and practicality-defying depth resistance. Cheap Tag Heuer Replica new Aquaracer Superdiver — a 45mm sea monster hewn from Grade 5 titanium, and water-resistant to 1000 meters.
Perhaps most interesting about this release isn’t its distinctive Ploprof-esque crown guard design, or its thick swatches of bright “signal orange” in the hands and bezel, but the fact that this reference is powered by a COSC-certified movement manufactured by Kenissi.
Visually, the Superdiver retains most of the key signatures of the recently refreshed Aquaracer — from the octagonal rotating bezel and hour markers to the “shutter” dial and beveled case band. Notably absent is the internal cyclops over the date aperture — a traditional Tag Heuer Aquaracer Replica Watch signature, but one that’s been left off of what’s an otherwise relatively busy dial.
The slats in the dial are also a touch farther apart, maintaining the interesting textured surface while allowing all of the elements a little more breathing room. Then there’s that new crown guard, which, yes, does look a lot like that of the Seamaster Ploprof, which also utilizes a full U-shaped guard that extends away from the case as the black DLC-coated crown is unscrewed.
The Quality Tag Heuer Replica Watch Superdiver’s interpretation appears to be more neatly integrated into the caseband, though, and while we’ll have to wait to go hands-on with the Superdiver, one does have to safely assume that its operation and utility is similar.
One other key design element present here that’s not on the standard Aquaracer divers is a helium release valve, located at the 9 o’clock side of the case. While much could be said about the necessity of this feature for pretty much anyone who’s not an actual professional saturation diver, its existence is essentially de rigueur for any serious dive watch.
But so serious is this particular dive watch that it’s received 6425:2018 certification status, a more stringent version of the traditional ISO 6425 certification governing the durability, legibility, and reliability of watches with “Diver” on the dial.
Indeed, the movement inside the SuperDiver is the TH30-00 made by Kenissi — a first for Tag Heuer Replica. This is a COSC-certified chronometer with 70 hours of power reserve and a date aperture — by specs alone.
It appears to be similar to the caliber MT5612, also manufactured by Kenissi and deployed in comparable tool watches like the Tudor Pelagos and the full range of date-equipped Heritage Black Bay references.
