New Tag Heuer Aquaracer: Revisted and Revised (WAY2013)

One of my favorite watches is the Tag Heuer Aqua Racer Caliber S Quartz. The super hard to set model from years ago. I show it above in comparison to the new Aquaracer Caliber 5 WAY2013, and I have to say the revised model grabs my attention also. The updated readability and lume are outstanding, indices pronounced. The orange sweep second hand also much improved. The crown is larger, easier to grab and manipulate. This is the quintessential upgrade and because of the garbage market has made the scene at a mere $2,250.00. That is a solid price point for an automatic timepiece and stronghold for Tag fan boys like myself. Some specs!
