Part of the icon pieces in the watch world, Formula 1 models have distinguished and improved due to Tag Heuer`s ambition to never let go history and strong connections with the racing world.
This particular model looks strong and compact and the 42mm stainless steel case has a 11.5 mm thickness and sits perfectly on the wrist, masculine enough but without the usual boldness of other sport watches. The desire to keep the original appealing parts of the series combined with the wish to constantly improve the movements and update the design have been awarded with the success of this amazing new model of the series.
The cool anthracite dial matches elegantly with the silvery stainless steel of the case and with the stainless steel case and ceramic bracelet, making this watch an unbreakable piece with a serious allure that can be the right choice for a business meeting, and yet a sport watch by definition, with all the necessary functions and a 200 m water resistance – perfect for any outdoor activity.
With a great design, qualitative materials and perfect finishes, the brand has transformed this watch into the perfect accessory that can respond to the various necessities of a modern man. It’s a more dressier watch so the consumer’s needs can be satisfied.
On a fix polished steel and brushed black ceramic bezel, the tachymeter scale has big silver Arabic numerals on it. The dial features luminous hands and markers and three black chronograph subdials that measure 1/10th of a second, 30-minutes and the small seconds, a precise measurement being possible due to the quartz heart of the watch.
The angled date window is positioned at 4 o’clock, and the minutes, hours, central second and counter’s hands are all polished and contribute to the exceptional finish of the watch and you can almost feel Tag Heuer`s vocation to build flawless products.
The art of the precise detail is also visible at the level of the “screw-in” Easy Grip crown and in the polished steel push-buttons, so well integrated in the case.
A perfect time measurement instrument that you can wear in any occasion, in a time when the market is full of one purpose sport watches.
The resistance of the watch is increased by its crystal scratch resistant sapphire and by the fine-brushed steel bracelet that comes with a folding clasp.
The quartz movement gives you all you may need from a watch: accuracy, reliability and the opportunity to avoid frequent services. Keep in mind that the batteries have a service life of at least two years. In the more and more small market of quartz watches, Tag Heuer`s Formula 1 models proudly stand by timepieces like the Breitling Colt-Quartz or the Victorinox I.N.O.X.
And while other brands bring just the technology, Tag Heuer comes with the excitement of a timepiece that breaths history and keeps the bond with sport as strong as always. An important idea to keep in mind once deciding to buy a sport watch. Because what more to ask from a timekeeper than to make you feel like you are on the point to push the acceleration or feel free to engage in any other sport related action. A watch with personality, unique and famous in the entire world.
