The Swiss luxury watchmaker TAG Heuer has announced its first-ever Qatar limited edition timepiece. The special limited edition GMT Aquaracer is inspired by the colours of the Qatari flag and features a vibrant dual-coloured 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 travellers, 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 43mm Aquaracer timepiece spots 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 metres, 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 colours of the Qatari flag.

Moreover, it celebrates a 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.

TAG Heuer Qatar Limited Edition Aquaracer is automatic with the display of date, hour, minute and seconds, second-time zone. Diameter 43mm, stainless-steel case, unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel in maroon burgundy and white light silver with Arabic indexes numbers, sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment, screw-down crown, water-resistant to 300m (30 bar). Stainless-steel case back with DOHA skyline special engraving.
