For years, companies from all sectors of the economy have developed partnerships with prominent tennis players. Notwithstanding, Naomi Osaka, the top Japanese player, isn’t an exception.

TAG Heuer has revealed a special limited version model created in partnership with Osaka as their alliance begins its second year in 2022. The freshly revamped 36mm Aquaracer collection is given a fresh look by the  TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Naomi Osaka Limited Edition. It combines robust functionality with a gentler, greener interpretation of the company’s iconic diving watch.

The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Naomi Osaka Limited Edition’s stainless steel casing, which measures a sleek 36mm, expands on the smaller of the two basic Aquaracer variants. This casing combines most of the design cues of the contemporary Aquaracer collection. They include the angular chamfered casing edges, prominent crown shields, as well as the line’s iconic 12-sided revolving diving bezel. Nevertheless, the general design might as well be light and much less angular, unlike its 43mm counterpart. This well-known bezel is given a crisply etched black ceramic inlay featuring a high distinction white diving scale.

On the other hand, the solid embossed caseback of the Aquaracer Professional 300 Naomi Osaka Limited Edition has TAG Heuer’s addition of Naomi Osaka’s unique flower insignia on a guilloche backdrop. It is exactly where the watch starts to stand out. It also features 300 meters of waterproofing, much like the other models in the line.

TAG Heuer uses a beautiful seafoam green hue to cover the dial of the Aquaracer Professional 300 Naomi Osaka Limited Edition with its recognizable angular perspective on dive wristwatch elements. It is undeniably eye-catching, boasting a brilliant sunburst polish highlighting the sinuous elevated wave structure.

Owing to a transparent upper layer, the dial inscription and attached indexes seem to hover over this wavy surface. The company contrasts this light green face with more vivid lime green patterns on the outermost chapter circle. This gives an additional visual excitement to the style by substituting 8 dazzling carved diamonds for the Aquaracer’s signature attached octagonal indicators. They help make vital details more clearly readable on a smaller display area. However, the 6 o’clock date display and circular cyclops magnification are likely to spark controversy among fans because they allegedly interfere with the flow of the dial style.

Caliber 5 is the mechanical movement that powers the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Naomi Osaka Limited Edition. It is inspired by the Sellita SW200-1 and has served as a mainstay of TAG Heuer’s portfolio for many years. And although it is still reliable and simple to maintain, its functionality is starting to decline. With a 28,800 bph beating frequency, TAG Heuer ranks its power reserve at a below-average 38 hours.

The Aquaracer Professional 300 Naomi Osaka Limited Edition is outfitted by TAG Heuer with a rich grass green patterned curved-end rubber band to complement the look. Moreover, the version certainly makes an impression on and away from the tennis court, featuring its soft unconventional coloring, striking design, and robust structure.

Overall, there are just 250 pieces of the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 Naomi Osaka Limited Edition.
