Tag Heuer Aquaracer Calibre 5 Automatic 300M WAN2110 BA0822 Mens Watch


It's pretty hard to believe that the WAN2110 is one of Tag Heuer's entry level automatic divers! The recently refreshed Tag Heuer Aquaracer Calibre 5 Automatic watch retains the classic good looks of a dive watch without breaking modesty. There's nothing vain or conceited about this model and they blend perfectly to the reserved background of a dressy styling. It is understated but it can't be ignored. The WAN2110 is a part of the new line of refreshed Aquaracer-s and is arguably, the most appealing of all the TAG dive watches.

The Tag Heuer Aquaracer Calibre 5 Automatic 300M WAN2110.BA0822 Men's Watch, stylistically, falls into the dress/diver category and it can be said that TAG has managed to master it. It appeals to anyone who is on t he lookout for an aesthetically versatile, rugged timepiece that he can wear with a pair of jeans as well as a suit. Its biggest plus point, aesthetically is, it's thin enough to fit under the cuff while large enough to announce its presence. It's not ostentatious but just exhibits a simple styling statement luxuriously.

The Aquaracer 2110 comes with a screw-down crown and a wetsuit extension for its bracelet. With a 41.5 mm case (with polished sides) and a 20mm lug spacing, its case – along with the bezel and sapphire crystal – stacks up to a mere 12mm thickness! For any existing sports watch, this is more than being very thin, comparatively. This is what that makes the Aquaracer double-up as a dress watch too. Add to it the contribution of the slightly curved lugs; they ensure an excellent fit and gives totality to the watch.

The Aquaracer 2110 has a unidirectional bezel, which is both light and sturdy and clicks 120 times upon a full rotation. The grip on the bezel is excellent, facilitated by six evenly-spaced grip tabs along the edge. However, under dry conditions, the serrations between the tabs of the bezel are good enough. At 12 o'clock, the bezel has a luminous pip that's completely in-laid, unlike many other watches using the stick-on dot. The advantage is it cannot turn loose and get knocked-off.

The Aquaracer's dial is simple one but nevertheless beautiful. It has a glass-like finish with printed text and inlaid markers with beautiful chrome borders. There's a classy, inner circle bordering the markers and the indices, which glimmers when light hits the dial. In terms of aesthetics, this little element makes a H-U-G-E difference! So does the thin white border of the date window; it keeps the visuals from turning bland but gels with the rest of the elements to bring in a complete look. The long hands are elegant (in short) and blend into the dial, bringing the perfect balance for enhanced visuals. Topped with an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, there's no chance you'll be missing out even on a single dot!

Inside the WAN2110, beats the Calibre 5, which is essentially an ETA 2824-2 (sometimes, a Sellita SW200) that has been dressed up by Tag to more than a fair bit. It keeps excellent time, fluctuating to only about +2 seconds on an average every week! That makes the Tag Heuer Formula One Chronograph Automatic 300M WAN2110.BA0822 Men's Watch one of the most accurate automatics ever in the entry-level category!
