TAG Heuer’s Lady Aquaracer collection has gained a series of new models for 2016, each of which features a ceramic case and bracelet. The Lady collection pioneered the use of ceramics at TAG Heuer, with the launch in 2012 of the Steel & Ceramic Formula 1 Lady models. However those watches were made from steel but with a ceramic bezel and bracelet links. The new Aquaracer models? Made entirely from ceramic.
So what is so special about ceramic? It’s main benefits are lightness and strength- lighter than steel, but also harder, which means the watch will be less prone to scratches. The other advantage is that the because the watch is made from coloured ceramics, the surfaces will keep their original colour, even as the watch ages.
The new models are available in a 35mm case, which represents an increase over the previous models which were either 27mm or 32mm.
There are four models in the 2016 range at launch: Black, White, Black & Rose Gold and Black & Diamonds.

The Black & Diamonds model features 60 diamonds around the bezel with a total of 0.27 carats.
