If you're in the market for a high-performance marine watch, you simply cannot ignore the Aquaracer Calibre S from the Swiss company TAG Heuer. Designed with yacht racing in mind, it has a face inspired by sports car tachometers. TAG says the Calibre S is the first analog watch to feature two semicircular subdials with bidirectional hands. The Calibre S is the latest addition to TAG's Aquaracer series, which is available in both men's and women's sizes, a number of band options (including stainless steel and 18-karat gold), and with various case and bezel options, like anthracite and mother of pearl. With all its bells and whistles, including three time-viewing modes, the price of the Calibre S is $2,800. Editor's note: As this was going to press, TAG informed us that the launch of the Calibre S has been delayed until 2007.
