Actor Leonardo DiCaprio presented the Limited Edition of Tag Heuer Aquaracer 500m Caliber 5 that comes with his personal touch. Thanks to this committed environmental activist, part of the benefit will be donated to NRDC and Green Cross International.
As the Tag Heuer’s ambassador since 2009, Leonardo DiCaprio has participated in company’s promotion, but with this Aquaracer edition, for the first time became deeper involved in the Tag’s production. And for the good reason. Along with the fundraising, partnership between the Hollywood star and the famous Swiss watchmaker has another value. The Aquaracer 500m Caliber 5 Leonardo DiCaprio Limited Edition is sending a message about the importance of environmental protection.
This excellent diving watch features all the qualities of the Tag Heuer Aquaracer 500m Caliber 5 (you can read our review), with slight differences in design. Leonardo DiCaprio Limited Edition has electric dark blue dial, with line effect that represents the earth’s meridians. At the 6 o’clock, there is logo of either National Resource Defense Council or Green Cross International.
Other differences are related to unidirectional bezel, which is coated with blue rubber to favor easy-grip and finally, to the watch bracelet. The Aquaracer 500m Caliber 5 Leonardo DiCaprio Limited Edition watch is available with a blue rubber strap and solid steel clasp, or with a three row steel bracelet.
Caliber 5 Automatic Movement
Watch is powered by in-house Caliber 5 automatic movement, which is also used in the TAG Heuer Carrera Automatic that Leonardo DiCaprio wore in movie Inception. Every single move of mechanism can be seen trough transparent sapphire caseback.
The Aquaracer 500m Caliber 5 Leonardo DiCaprio is a high-class diving watch that withstood rigorous tests under the water to ensure resistance up to 500 meters. It is protected with an automatic helium valve positioned at 10 o’clock, which regulates water pressure.
Watch is covered with the scratch resistant sapphire crystal with antireflective treatment, which gives a clear look on luminescent hands and markers and provides great visibility in heavy conditions.
The Aquaracer 500m Caliber 5 Leonardo DiCaprio watches was produced in limited number of pieces for both professional and amateur divers, as well as for all who want to support the great cause that stand behind this edition.
