TAG Heuer Formula 1, New Color Variations

Celebrating the start of the 2021 F1 season in Bahrain, TAG Heuer unveiled 4 new references in its TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection. Their bright colours and asphalt-effect dial lend these watches a fresh urban look that will enchant the newest generation of motorsport fans.

Since 1968 and the first sponsoring agreement signed by Jack Heuer with the Swiss racing driver Jo Siffert, TAG Heuer’s association with Formula 1 has never faltered. Back then, the champion sported the brand logo on his car and his racing suit. Thanks to him, many racing drivers began to wear a Heuer on their wrist, making TAG Heuer the watchmaker par excellence of the F1 circuits.

Paying tribute to this heritage, in 1986, TAG Heuer designed a collection exclusively dedicated to Formula 1. With their disruptive design, steel case and quartz movement, these watches combined vibrant colours with a rubber strap. Their innovative and racing looks won them overnight success.

Today, TAG Heuer is still very much part of the circuit scene and will continue to support the Red Bull Racing Formula One team in the upcoming 2021 season debuting in Bahrain, while being the Official timekeeper of the Monaco Grand Prix and long-standing sponsor of the Automobile Club de Monaco.

The novelty pieces – 3 chronographs and a three-hands model – come with a 43 mm diameter steel case and ceramic bezel, an asphalt textured dial and, on certain models, a nylon strap that recalls the harness inside a cockpit. Above all, though, it sports the same gleaming colours that abound in the paddock.

This latest livery introduces a lime yellow along with a vibrant orange, a colour that has been part of the TAG Heuer DNA for more than fifty years. In the 1970s already, Jack Heuer presented an Autavia with orange accents on the central hand and indexes.

A bold choice that earned the model the nickname ‘Orange Boy’ among watch aficionados. And when the company launched its TAG Heuer Formula 1 in 1986, this fun colour, symbol of energy and action, had already taken its place in the palette.

Dominating the dial, orange enjoys the limelight on the three-hand model, while on the chronograph, adopting the understatement of the lime yellow, it elegantly highlights the hands, indexes and subdials and contrasts on the ceramic tachymeter-scale bezel. An urban, audaciously sporty look that is sure to appeal to the young lovers of speed and powerful emotions.
