Tag Heur’s Formula One, racing-inspired timepiece, is truly a designer watch made for racing enthusiasts. When originally launched, the Formula 1 was a more primitive quartz watch with blunt lines, yet still captured the attention of luxury watch and racing fans. More than 15 years later, the Formula 1 line by Tag Heuer has evolved into one of the most successful in Swiss watch-manufacturing history.
The F1 Tag is available in many styles, dial colors, and special commemorative editions. The quartz movement is available in regular and chronograph versions. The most popular dial colors are red, black and silver. The Formula one can be worn in casual and formal attire as it is available in both rubber strap and stainless steel bracelet versions.
The Tag Raikkonen edition features a Formula one dash board-inspired dial. The sub dials have 0 set at 8 O’clock like speed gauges on a racing car’s dashboard. Raikkonen, an F1 legend was brought to Tag Heuer’s head quarters in Switzerland for a special seminar that would allow him to be a Tag Heuer specialist. Alongside Tag Heuer’s talented watch-makers, the racing icon helped design the timepiece’s sleek design.
The new Tag formula 1 timepiece, released this year features designs by Fernando Alonso, a two-time Formula 1 champion. The recently launched F1 features new sub dials in the chronograph version. The seconds sub dial was moved to 9 O’ clock. Also unveiled this year are the Tag F1 Indy 500 and F1 chronometer. These new variations of the classic F1 are inspired by the Indy 500 American racing circuit and feature C.O.S.C certified movements.
