TAG Heuer creates $2,000 green 200-piece Saudi Arabia Aquaracer
Following the release of the his and her green Aquaracer, TAG Heuer has come back with yet another green entry. This time however, it’s a limited edition.
If the recent reveal of the greened-out Aquaracers really excited you, we’ve got even more good news. The avant garde watchmaker is back with a Kingdom of Saudi Arabia limited edition. Sticking close to the flag of KSA, the new watch sports the green colour we’ve fallen in love with.
The ‘KSA Limited Edition’ has all the hallmarks of a good diving watch such as the legible bezel which rotates, a screw-down crown, a double safety strap and 300m of water resistance.
Where this watch really stands out is the special engraving on its case back, with “KSA Limited Edition” etched on, as well as noting which of the 200 pieces you own. The bezel of the watch uses a green colour inspired by the country's flag.
Aquaracers are affordable yet luxurious timepieces, rarely clocking in over US $3,000, this special piece would make a good alternative for a gent looking for a Rolex Kermit but can’t justify coughing up over US $10,000. The KSA edition is priced at 7,8000 SAR or around US $2,080.
“TAG Heuer has had a presence in Saudi Arabia for many years and we are proud to have the opportunity to release a limited edition Aquaracer that bears a special meaning. Reminiscent of the green color of the Saudi flag, we are happy to introduce the KSA limited edition Aquaracer with a green bezel and look forward to many more years of prosperity and progress,” said Paul Boissonnet, Brand Director for TAG Heuer Middle East.
The watch is slated for a September 23 release and is endorsed by several notable figures in KSA.
The launch of the watch will see a campaign featuring four Saudi ‘tastemakers’. The four people are as follows:
Raha Moharrak – First Saudi woman to climb the Everest
Ibrahim Basha – Filmmaker and leading vlogger
Muath Al-Essa – Pro Drifter and breast cancer awareness advocate
Mohammad al-Sahlawi – Celebrated Saudi Arabian footballer
