The Swiss luxury watchmaker TAG Heuer, is pleased to announce its first ever Qatar limited edition timepiece. The special limited edition GMT Aquaracer is inspired by the colors of the Qatari flag, and features a vibrant dual-colored combination of burgundy and silver-white on the bezel, that is further underscored by the use of Arabic numbers. GMT timepieces are fine mechanical instruments, extremely popular for their ability to display a second time zone, and the limited edition Aquaracer is a prime example with its 24 hour time display in Arabic numerals. The option of a second time zone ensures ease and convenience for Qatari travelers, who will always know the local time in their homeland. Adorned with a special engraving on the back case representing the Doha skyline and available in 200 pieces only, the special limited edition Aquaracer will be available to pre-order at the Doha Jewellery and Watches Exhibition 2020.
The stunning 43 mm Aquaracer timepiece sports a stark black dial that is accented by unique Arabic numerals on the bezel, as well as a date window at 3 o’clock on the dial and a triangle marker at 12 o’clock on the bezel, for optimal readability. With water resistance up to 300 meters, the timepiece retains its iconic diving DNA with its stainless-steel bracelet with diving extension, and folding clasp with double safety push-buttons. The watch also features a unidirectional turning bezel and fine brushed & polished steel case back with a decorative engraving, ensuring that the watch is unique, on-trend and memorable, from every angle.
This launch allows TAG Heuer to show their commitment to watch lovers by developing a special Qatar limited edition that pays tribute to national identity and highlights both the Arabic culture and the colors of the Qatari flag. Moreover, it celebrates the long standing and trusted retail partnership with Al Majed Jewellery. Together they share the same passion for precision engineering and high performance and look forward to pre-launching it amongst Doha’s watch lovers. This limited edition timepiece embodies different facets of TAG Heuer’s avant-garde spirit and strengthens its reputation as a strong innovative watch manufacturer.
