TAG Heuer Formula 1 Review

As you read this TAG Heuer Formula 1 review, you’ll soon fall in love with this particular watch. All the TAG’s make excellent timepieces, but there is something special about the use of ceramics in the Formula 1 which makes it truly exceptional.

TAG Heuer Formula 1

There are many long-standing icons in the watch industry. TAG makes a bold statement. The Formula 1 has moved significantly up but, importantly, I think it has kept the youth and appeal of the original series.

It is not a large watch, so it is not overbearing on the wearer or overly assertive in the “hey look at me!” sense

The rotating bezel is playful, with raised large numerals on titanium-carbide coated black steel. The watch is well constructed, heavy on the wrist compared to other quartz watches but solidly built. Its design is perfectly proportioned.

Serious enough to wear to a business meeting yet casual enough to keep on at a pick-up basketball game after work. This is exactly the appeal that’s missing in some other iconic watches – this watch has “youth.”

In business formal, this watch presents a dash of playfulness and energy against the stiff upper lip. In hoodie and jeans, this watch adds a little luxury to a day in the park without risking that heirloom watch. In business casual, this watch feels most at home.

While there are other watches out there more specific to each occasion, this Formula 1 is your beautiful young friend, who can fit in just about anywhere.

Key Features of this product:

  • Dial window is made of anti reflective sapphire. Sapphire is the most expensive and durable crystal, approximately three times harder than mineral crystals and 20 times harder than acrylic crystals.
  • Display type is analog.
  • Foldover clasp with safety to ensure it stays securely in place.
  • Unidirectional bezel function. Most unidirectional bezels rotate counterclockwise. In many dive watches, it is used to measure elapsed time spent underwater.
  • Swiss quartz movement. A watch with quartz movement measures the vibrations in a piece of quartz and is often powered by a battery.
  • Calendar displays the date of the month.

Other features that come in handy:

 

  • Bezel and band are made from stainless steel. Measures depth and is water resistant up to 660 feet (200 meters).
  • Curved and polished hand-applied indexes and 12 numeral with luminescent markers.
  • Polished minute and hour hands with luminescent markers.
  • Polished counters’ hands with red tip.
  • Polished central chronograph second hand with red tip.

 

Variations

The F1 has many variations, many of which can be found on Amazon.

The Chronograph features stopwatch functions and a tachymetre for measuring average speeds in either miles or kilometres. Ceramics are used to keep it lightweight and 4 times as scratch-resistant as stainless steel.

The Black features the 3, 6 ,9 and 12 numerals and the pitch black screen against the red seconds hand is a great combination.

About the Brand

For over 150 years, TAG Heuer has faced down and pushed past every challenge. It has led it to even higher levels of precision and performance by surpassing Swiss watchmaking conventions. It makes its own rules, chooses its own path, never quits moving forward, never compromises, never cracks under pressure.

TAG Heuer is extraordinary and has continually revolutionized watchmaking since its creation back in 1860 by the young man of just 20 years old, Edouard Heuer.

There have been major technical advances such as the oscillating pinion in 1887, revolutions in appearance and style embodied in iconic models such as the TAG Heuer Carrera launched in 1963, and commercial innovations that rapidly brought them legendary ambassadors such as Juan Manuel Fangio.

What really sets TAG Heuer apart is the superior quality of its watches and chronographs, of which they, as a company, are tremendously proud. Dependable and resilient, these watches are a pleasure to own and wear, and form part of our everyday lives.

Overall

The Formula 1 is great looking, solidly put together, and the appearance is of high quality. The watch is great anyone with vision problems, the time can be seen with just a glance. Attractive with red highlights on black dial, super lightweight aluminum band & titanium bezel and markers glow blue in the dark.

This is a watch you can wear with jeans and a t-shirt or dressed up for a black tie event, its perfect and looks great for any occasion. It’s lightweight so it doesn’t bother you after wearing it all day, but heavy enough to know that its there. The band is very comfortable and never pinches arm hair as many other watch bracelets do. Its an understated watch so its not too flashy or fancy, but very sporty looking and high quality.

The real deal in a time piece for a masculine male. Look no further for versatility and style.

Other Features

Notice the speed measuring capabilities on the bezel? That’s a titanium tachymeter designed for measuring speeds in either kilometers or miles.

Like all other TAG Heuer watches, this one is also fitted with a Sapphire crystal, making it extra resilient and scratch resistant.

There are also many cosmetic features, the polished hands, the carbide-coated bezel, the aforementioned racing red colouring, and even a checkered back on the case. What F1 watch would be complete without the checkered flag?

This is one of TAG Heuer’s finest.
