    Hi all, my first post here.
    Anyone have any information about AQUARACER 'Defender' WAJ2119.
    It has a plaque on the dial inscribed 'GGYC'.
    Will try to upload photograph later.
    Any help/comment could be useful.
    Thank you.
    Ed.

    As Jim has commented, the model is in the 2012-13 catalogue which is very unusual. I don't really know a lot more than that about this one... other than it was connected to a boat racing team and was a limited edition (don't know how many).

    I'd like to get hold of the 'Leonardo DiCaprio' 500M Aquaracer with the glossy blue 'world' dial.

    There were two different logos and I couldn't give a stuff about either of them, the dial is lush!

    Found a little info, watch issued to Americas Cup winners in 2013, LVMH/TAG Heuer sponsored the ORACLE Racing team.
    Oracle had to be affiliated to a Yacht Club, which was Golden Gate Yacht Club. The dial emblem shows their initials and club logo as well as the winners trophy.
    OTT with my photo's.
    Best, Ed.

    Great info! These Aquaracers are great, big and bulky for sure so no good for Charlie... but awesome on the wrist.

    Just weighed it at 6 ounces, not for my daily wear watch.
