Would love some help on recommendations for my next watch. I have been looking at tags (aquaracer) but want to know what else I should look at. Don’t mind spending some money. Tia!

Generally speaking, Tag does not have a good reputation among watch enthusiasts. It mostly has to do with them not being great value for money, and the brand image of "the nicest mall brand." If the aquaracer looks are something you like, allow me to suggest a couple of alternatives:
Oris Aquis - there are two levels, one with the Sellita movement that will be around the same price as the Tag 200, and one with an awesome in house calibre 400 movement around the same price as the Tag 300. I'd argue both of those are nicer watches, the calibre 400 being far nicer. Oris is an independent, unlike Tag, so they do a good job of value for money and experimenting with some cool colors and designs.
Longines Hydroconquest - nice watch from the Swatch group that is comparable to the Tag 200 and IMO better looking.
Breitling Superocean heritage - can get this lightly used for around the same price as the 300 and is an awesome, albeit a bit blingy, watch using the same movement as the Tudor BB58.
Tudor BB58 - Great all around watch. About the same price as the Tag 300 but far nicer.
Omega SMP 300 - Getting a little more expensive, but you've got a Bond watch (sure, Dalton wore a Tag but he is hands down the worst Bond) with an awesome in house movement from a far nicer watchmaker. Finishing is significantly nicer than the Tag with a similar type dial.
Or just get the Tag. Its not a bad watch at all, just not in vogue at the moment. I'd go used, they don't hold value well at all. Or at least push for a healthy discount.

Yeah, I’m the one who liked your comment.

Define “some money”

So I take it you’re looking at divers then? You could check out Oris and Longines for some great automatic movements at the lower end of the budget spectrum. Breitling is an option. Then you can check out Tudor and Omega. Then obviously Rolex but you won’t be able to get hold of one. Grand Seiko is a hugely underrated option depending who you speak to.

I’m hoping to hear any thoughts regarding Cartier’s Tank Louis in rose gold. I am the first in my family to graduate college, and I am graduating from grad school next year. I would like to celebrate with a special watch that I can pass down in my family. I have always loved square watches and I think I would wear this with most of my professional and more casual outfits.
