TAG Heuer unveiled the Formula 1 Chronograph in three energetic colors evocative of the racetrack: green, yellow, and red. These statement quartz sports watches draw inspiration from the first TAG Heuer Formula 1 pieces from the 1980s, which were praised for their cool colors and character.
The 43-mm case of the chronograph is offered in fine-brushed stainless steel and features pushbuttons at 2 and 4 o’clock and a strong black PVD steel fixed tachymeter-scale bezel with positive numerals. The screw-down steel case back reveals a checkered flag motif, sign of a successfully completed race.
The stylish case houses a luminous sunray brushed dial with three “azurage” chronograph sub-counters which add texture, depth, and light effects. The angled date window is positioned at 4 o’clock and the contrasting hands and indexes are coated with white Super-LumiNova® for excellent legibility at high speed. The watch comes with a streamlined and textured rubber strap.
For optimal clarity and balance, each colored piece features slightly different details. On the green edition the indexes and hands are black with white Super-LumiNova®, the central hand is lacquered white, and the chronograph sub-counters are circled in red. On the yellow edition, the indexes are black with white Super-LumiNova®, the hours and minutes hands are black, and the central hand is lacquered red.
The red edition’s hands and indexes are rhodium-plated with white Super-LumiNova®, the central hand is lacquered white, and the chronograph sub-counters are circled in white. Together the three chronographs form a vibrant assortment that will delight racing enthusiasts and lovers of cool statement sports watches that complement their bold personality
The new TAG Heuer Formula 1 Chronograph is available from September 2022 in TAG Heuer boutiques, on the brand’s e-commerce websites and at select retail partners.
