Part of the impressive Aquaracer collection, this special edition model is named after the famous talented basketball player who has become Tag Heuer`s ambassador, due to the brand’s ambition to relate and to support bold, innovating and courageous people. The brand international advertising campaign Don’t Crack Under Pressure has found in this charming NBA star a unique representative. It’s in the brand DNA this passion to be a part of what’s great in the world, to identify with pioneering men and women, with people that dare to go beyond their limits.
The 41 mm fine-brushed and polished steel case has a special design. On the anthracite dial with sunray effect there is the date window with magnifying lens at 3 o’clock and the JL7 logo at 9 o’clock. A bold yellow touch is added through the printed minuterie with the 17th minute (this is Jeremy’s jersey number) and by the yellow lacquered minute and second hands. By night this watch is spectacular because of the luminescent indexes and hands. The color combo is kept at the level of the black nylon strap that has yellow stitching and lining and a steel folding clasp with the safety push-buttons that are already a common thing among the Aquaracer models.
The heart of this watch is the Calibre 5 automatic that offers a power reserve of 38 hours. The fine-brushed screw-in back of the case replenishes the modern design through the Jeremy Lin (JL7) logo engraving. The stunning dial has a certain depth when you look at it, because of the association between the charcoal color and the bold yellow. The unusual chromatic gives a high-tech feeling, a futuristic touch that bonds this watch to this outstanding sportsman. The bezel is twelve-sided with six studs and it accentuates the compact overall looks of the watch and the 300m inscription just above the six o’clock index reminds us that this is a piece from the Aquaracer collection, build to assure great water resistance and endurance.
The modern look is undeniable and with this model the Aquaracer collection enriches and becomes more diversified then it already is. It also engages a youthful sector of the market and broadens the brand’s associations with various sports. With an appealing design and with the reputation of a serious and appreciated sport watchmaker, this model stands out in the collection through simple yet dramatic touches that don’t mess with the classic design of an Aquaracer, but transforms it into a innovating timepiece, unique by its name, yet coherent in its membership to a collection that supports and promotes different kinds of sports.
It truly deserves a place in a watch collection or it can be the first high-end acquisition for someone who knows why Tag Heuer is worldwide recognized as the sports watchmaker by excellence and wishes to own a timepiece that doesn’t lack personality.
