Aquaracer Professional 300 Naomi Osaka Limited Edition
TAG Heuer ambassador Naomi Osaka is not only one of today’s best and most influential tennis players, she is also someone who is passionate about fashion and design. The Aquaracer Professional 300 Naomi Osaka Limited Edition is the result of the close collaboration between the Japanese sportswoman and the Swiss watch brand.
Naomi Osaka became a TAG Heuer brand ambassador in January 2021 and since then has enjoyed working with the iconic watchmaker brand. To celebrate their partnership,
Naomi Osaka and TAG Heuer worked together on a new project: to create a new watch, a TAG Heuer Aquaracer, which will be launched exclusively in the US, Japan and Australia.
For this special edition, Naomi Osaka wanted the TAG Heuer model that bears her name to have shades of green on the dial and the strap. The green not only represents a reminder of tennis but also brings Osaka back to her love of nature and
all things green.
In honour of her two great passions, the dial of the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Naomi Osaka Limited Edition has two shades of green: the dial has a distinctive pale green colour forming a wave pattern, while details on the five minutes markers are in a different shade of green with a subtle reference to the colour of tennis balls. The octagonal hour markers are made of diamonds.
A special tool to make it easy to change the straps is also included. Finally, the case
back is decorated with the player’s official logo: a teddy bear holding a flower. Naomi’s
favourite emblem can also be found on the exclusive packaging of this limited-edition
Naomi Osaka chose the Aquaracer collection as the basis for the limited series that would bear her name. Indeed, athletes and very active people appreciate the Aquaracer models for its exceptional robustness and for their hour markers and hands that are unusually wide for this type of model. This makes it easy to see the time with one glance and it is worth noting that the Aquaracer’s bezel is also extra-wide which brings a bold design and improves readability.
The result of this co-creation between the avant-garde Swiss watchmaker and the tennis player is a high-performance watch with a unique style and fashion, just like the extraordinary champion that is Naomi Osaka.
The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Naomi Osaka Limited Edition comes in a black and green box featuring the player’s official logo as well as the TAG Heuer logo. The box includes a black travel pouch with green over-stitching.
The watch will be available in shops and online from January 2022. The series will be limited to 250 pieces, numbered from 1 to 250
The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Naomi Osaka Limited Edition has a diameter of 36 millimeter and uses automatic Calibre 5.
