TAG Heuer has once again taken one of its classic models and given an innovative spin, using a color-combo on its bezel that’s rare in watchmaking world: tortoiseshell.

Opting for the Aquaracer as its basis, the new model is offered in two different color options, both measuring in at a slightly larger 43mm case. A blue edition carries a blue tortoiseshell bezel around a similar-toned sunray brushed dial, capturing stunning reflections when hit by light. Three white hour, minute, and seconds hands come in white to pair with the applied indexes with Super-LumiNova coating, making the watch handier in darker conditions. The overall design is retained for the red tortoiseshell variant, save the color of the dial, which is a flat black instead. Both have date windows at 3 o’clock thanks to the ETA-based Caliber 5, an automatic movement with time and date complications operating at 4Hz and carries a power reserve of 42 hours. Both timepieces are finished with rubber straps perfect for the sea, completed with patterning to mimic alligator leather.

For those interested, the new tortoiseshell TAG Heuer Aquaracers will be available this August, retailing for $2,600 USD each.

Elsewhere in watches, Seiko’s new SNR045J1 is the perfect Hulk-sub alternative.
