Part of the prestigious Formula 1 collection, this model relies on a conventional Swiss made quartz movement and proves once again that the only desire of this watchmaker is to produce and deliver qualitative and accurate timepieces.
This product developers want to point out that the design of a watch has a primary importance and clearly makes a difference when it is accomplished using materials like fine-brushed and polished steel in the case, the crown protectors, the fixed bezel or in the push-button located at 4 o`clock. So this sport watch is designed to explore and endure difficult weather conditions and it`s presenting itself in a compact case that it`s not only durable but specially designed to give this watch its own personality, underlined through some beautiful details such as the angled date window, luminous silver-toned hands and indexes, the two black counters with azurage (running 60 seconds at 3 o`clock, 12 hour alarm at 9 o`clock), polished steel index hour markers with luminescent strip, all precisely disposed on a manly black opalin dial. The case is covered in a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass.
The battery that power the quartz movement has a service life of at least two years, but no need to worry, they incorporate an EOL system (end of battery life indicator) which makes this watch even more reliable.
DontCrackUnderPressure is the reedited version of the 1989 original advertising campaign and it`s clearly showing that the Swiss watchmaker highly respects the grounds of tradition but they are constantly working to build new models that perfectly succeed to answer the needs and desires of a market that is changing continuously. This particular model of the Formula 1 collection incorporates the clear and innovative concept of the brand to push the boundaries of innovation and always try to achieve the best performance. It has all the qualities of a traditional Swiss watchmaker: a quartz movement with almost perfect precision, best materials providing its resistance, a highly qualitative mounting of markers on the dial. But this brand has always had a talent for marketing its watches by making the timepieces appealing. In this direction, the caseback has a special checkered decoration and is easy to screw-in. The steel fixed bezel has engraved black shield and numerals that remind us of an official Formula 1 timekeeper, a duty that Tag Heuer has longtime fulfilled and should be in itself a reminder of the accuracy that we can get by purchasing this kind of timepiece.
The 41 mm fine-brushed polished steel case has the perfect measurements for a manly type of watch but it does provide certain lightness and an effortlessly carriage by not being too big. It gives you the freedom to forget that you are wearing it even when you swim or dive. On the back of the case you will find the water-resistant mark, pressure and bench tested for 200m.
The 3-row fined-brushed steel bracelet comes with a double safety clasp that is both confortable and secure. You can purchase the watch with a pre-sized bracelet if you want to make sure it fits perfectly.
The Formula 1 WAZ111A.BA0875 model is the fated watch for a modern man that loves being on the move but also relies on good old fashion tradition and experience.
