Tag Heuer’s Aquaracer Nightdiver Watch Is Laid-Back Luxury at Its Finest

Here’s a thing about watches you might not know: Not all luxury timepieces have sky-high price-tags. Yeah, we know. We were shocked to find out that information too. But, while many high-end timepiece brands offer watches in the $5,000+ range, it’s rare to find one for half the cost, let alone one that offers everything the higher-priced watches feature.

Tag Heuer’s Nightdiver Aquaracer 43 mm watch comes in at an unbelievable low price of $2,150. Now, some of you might be saying, “Unbelievably low, my ass,” and we hear you. But when you think about the price of the watch in relation to the price of say a new MacBook, iMac, or,  hell, a new iPhone, the price tag for something that you’ll wear repeatedly (and for years to come) doesn’t look so daunting.

To start, you get a nicely designed modern watch with a white textured dial, a white flange with a 60-second scale, facetted hour and minutes hands with white superluminova to make telling time in the dark easier, all in a 43 mm diameter case with a black, PVD titanium grade 2 finishing. A flat sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating composes the bold front of the watch, while the case back is a steel screw-down. The movement is a TAG Heuer quarts, made in Switzerland and is powered by a standard watch battery. The brand also notes that the watch’s movement has been regulated to almost perfect precision with, “a variation of only a few seconds per month), which is no atomic-clock standard but is still better than what most super-expensive watches offer. Finally, the watch is capped off with a black rubber strap featuring a folding clasp with double safety push-buttons. And, since this bad boy is a diver, after all, it’s also waterproof up to 300 meters, which is 985 feet.

A man's watch is supposed to do one thing above all else: tell the time. But let's be honest, you probably use your phone to check the hour twice as often as you glance at your wristwatch. In fact, if you're like most of us, you probably cross-reference your reading of that analog watch face against the digital numerals on your phone, am I right?
