    I am relatively new to Tag Heuer watches. I bought my first in London in November '21: a black and blue diving Aquaracer watch:
    TAG HEUER AQUARACER Automatic Watch - Diameter 43 mm WAY201T.BA0927
    I love its heaviness, weight, chunkiness. Since then I have bought another Tag:
    TAG HEUER FORMULA 1Quartz Chronograph - Diameter 43 mm CAZ101AC.BA0842.
    Although I love this watch too, when I wear it, I miss the weight and size on my wrist. I am now thinking of getting:
    TAG HEUER AQUARACER Automatic Watch - Diameter 43 mm WAY2012.BA0927
    This seems like it is one of the few comparable Aquaracers in terms of weight and size to the diving watches.
    Can anyone tell me if there any other previous models no longer available that also compare?
    Many thanks!

    If you want a big chunky Aquaracer have a look at the 43mm WAJ series. Here is an example, my quartz grey dial (also available in Cal 5)

    These are very substantial watches and you will certainly know you are wearing it!

    Thank you so much. I love the look of this one. And love your description of ‘certainly knowing you are wearing it!’ That’s exactly how I like them.

    Yep, it's 500M and built like a tank!

    Also comes in blue, black and orange dials... and also a Leonardo Di Caprio Limited Edition with a cool blue 'world' dial. If you can find one.

    Is this watch still available to buy? I can’t see to find it on the Tag website.

    Not new, they were about 13 years ago. You might find one on Watchfinder or Est1897 or similar, or Ebay of course..
