Following the launch of the Aquaracer Professional 300 series at Watches and Wonders Geneva last April, TAG Heuer just announced three additional models to the watch family, including a new iteration of the iconic TAG Heuer, all-black with lume that dubbed as Aquaracer Professional 300 Night Diver.
TAG Heuer fans will immediately recognize the name “Night Diver”, first introduced in the mid-1980s, this watch became one of the most famous sports watches of its time.

Today’s Aquaracer Professional 300 collection takes a lot of inspiration from the original model. The TAG Heuer design and engineering team worked together to bring updates while retaining the signature details such as the famous 12-sided bezel and horizontal engraving lines on the dial to produce a modern classic that is both smooth and versatile.
The Aquaracer Professional 300 adds three models to the former eight models that was announced in April, bringing the collection to 11 references. These three new models make their way into the core collection, each with a 43mm stainless steel case and rubber strap equipped with TAG Heuer’s innovative adjustable folding buckle.
The standout model of this release is the black DLC-coated Night Diver. The stainless steel case, bezel, crown, case back and buckle are all coated in carbon like matte black diamond, known as DLC, a high performance, hardwearing finish designed to be used in extreme conditions. The bezel inserts are made of highly durable black ceramic.
Another Aquaracer Night Diver signature feature is the fully luminous dial, coated in green Super-LumiNova® for outstanding glow-in-the-dark performance. To ensure the highest readability in extreme low light conditions, the minute and second hands are also filled with blue lume to contrast with the green dial. The hour hands and octagonal hour markers at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock are filled with green lume, and the remaining octagonal hour markers all come with black lacquer.\
Each new Aquaracer Professional 300 reference comes with a beautifully designed integrated rubber strap complemented by the newly developed buckle system from TAG Heuer.
Like several models that were present at the first launch, the three new Aquaracer Professional 300 references are powered by the TAG Heuer Caliber 5 automatic movement. They all have sturdy back cases stamped with a scamander wetsuit image. All Aquaracer Professional 300 models are water resistant to 300 meters (30 bar, 1,000 feet).
This watch is indeed designed to be durable in the face of extreme tracks and underwater pressure, but with a minimalist design, you can also use this watch for office cakes or casual activities on the weekends. For more information, please visit the nearest TAG Heuer boutique.
