TAG Heuer Ladies Aquaracer VS Carrera
Find out which one of these two popular ladies watches from TAG Heuer is best for you.
The TAG Heuer Aquaracer comes in 3 sizes for women. The smallest size is the 27mm ladies Aquaracer. At a medium size for ladies, there is the 32mm version and the largest model available is currently the 35mm Aquaracer.
There are currently 27 different several styles in the ladies Aquaracer collection. One common design feature is the twelve-faceted bezel. This is the signature look throughout the whole series for both men and women Aquaracers.
Typically, the most commonly bought ladies Aquaracers are the stainless steel models which have a stainless steel case and a mother of pearl dial on the smaller models numbers way1312.ba0915 (32mm) and way1412.ba0920 (27mm) or white dial on the larger 35mm models such as model number way131b.ba0914. There are also many models that feature a black dial for added contrast.
There are several models that use precious metals in the case and bracelet. These precious materials such as 18kt rose gold and 18 kt yellow gold. Most recently, with the success of the Chanel J12, TAG Heuer introduced ceramic into the series. There are some models that have ceramic center links on the bracelet and there are some other models where the entire bracelet and case are fabricated with a ceramic material such as model numbers way1391.bh0717 and way1390.bh0716.
There are diamond TAG Heuer Aquaracer models that feature diamond hour markers, bezels or both. Diamond bezels usually feature only one row of diamonds. However, if you really want to shine, there are two models of the ladies Aquaracer that has two rows of diamonds around the bezel. These are model numbers of those two watches: way131e.ba0913 and way131f.ba0914.
What makes the TAG Heuer Aquaracer special when compared to the Ladies TAG Heuer Carrera collection, aside from a large number of available styles is the level of water resistance which is usually between 200m (660 feet) and 300m (approx. 1000 feet) on the Aquaracer compared to the 100m on the Carrera. This positions the Aquaracer as a perfect watch for ladies who are active swimmers and who want to swim in style.
The available sizes of the Ladies TAG Heuer Carrera are 28mm and 32mm. TAG did at one point create a rather large 41mm size for ladies but had since discontinued all 4 of those larger 41mm ladies Carrera models.
There are currently 16 styles including 12 that are still in production if you don't count the four larger 41 mm models mentioned above. The ladies TAG Heuer Carrera collection is a smaller collection than the ladies Aquaracer watches.
The model that is usually chosen most often is the 32mm quartz with a mother of pearl dial model # war1311.ba0778 it's possible that it is that popular because it’s one of the cheapest TAG Heuer Carrera watches for women that has classy looking diamond hour markers. The next most popular model is war1352.bd0779, the 32mm two-tone version with the white mother of pearl dial and diamond hour markers made of polished 18kt rose gold and stainless steel.
The Ladies TAG Heuer Carrera collection is currently available in a choice of two materials; stainless steel and a two-tone version of 18kt rose gold and stainless steel. The larger 41mm models which are now discontinued were available in a black DLC coated stainless steel case and bracelet or a black quilted pattern leather strap. But as of now, there are only 12 available models and only in stainless steel and duotone stainless steel and pink gold. Yellow Gold is currently not available in this series.
There are actually only two models of the ladies TAG Heuer watch without diamonds on them. These are the model numbers war1311.ba0778 and war2411.ba0776. Every single TAG Heuer Carrera model for women besides these two have diamonds either on the bezel or diamond hour markers or both. The Aquaracer, on the other hand, has a pretty even split of models that come with and without diamonds.
One of the things that make the Carrera series special is in the watchmaking itself. The ladies Carrera watches currently have 7 models that are powered by an automatic self-winding mechanical movement. The remaining 9 models in the series have battery-powered quartz movements. Usually, a mechanical movement means it's a more prestigious watch. The Ladies Aquaracer series only has quartz powered watches.
