Aquaracer 500M Calibre 5 Full Black is a dive watch by TAG Heuer.

In the spring of 2010 TAG Heuer presented this completely black version of the model Aquaracer 500M Calibre 5 from the dive watch series Aquaracer (market introduction: September 2010).

The 43 mm wide satin-finished titanium case with black titanium carbide coating is waterproof up to a depth of 50 atm. In its interior, the automatic movement Calibre 5 is beating. The screwed crown and the uni-directional rotating bezel feature a soft-touch surface of black rubber with a yellow luminescent dot at 12 h.

The deep black, vertically striped dial is optimally to read thanks to yellow-green luminescent markers on the polished black hands and indices, as well as on the vertical sides of the date window at 9 h, which is equipped with a magnifying lens. The back is made of scratch-resistant tinted sapphire crystal. At 10 o'clock is a satin-finished, automatic helium escape valve.
