To celebrate its partnership with Red Bull Racing, TAG Heuer has released a brand-new version of the Formula 1 Red Bull Racing Special Edition. Thanks to its bolder design and advanced technical features, the timepiece is perfectly crafted for fans of Formula 1 and Red Bull Racing.
For this new version, the designers highlighted the bold colours of the Red Bull Racing Team, such as the mythical dark blue and striking red tones. The new blue sun-brushed dial with a customized minuterie featuring vibrant yellow and red touches is the perfect example of this. The 1/10th second chronograph counter at 6 o’clock has also yellow and red details and the chronograph central second hand is highlighted in yellow.
The Arabic numeral indexes are directly inspired by racing car speedometers. The Formula 1 connoisseurs will also notice the subtle reference to their favourite sport in the form of a line above the 5 and 7 numerals, evoking the starting line of racing track. The new dial is also inspired by F1 car cockpits and is highly legible to make the time easy to read in all conditions.
To complete this bold racing design the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Red Bull Racing Special Edition has round pushers painted with a red lacquer outline to highlight the chronograph start button at 2 o’clock.
A special bezel is engraved with the word “SPEED” a term which perfectly symbolises Formula 1’s quest for ultimate performance.
The caseback of the watch is also engraved with the words “RED BULL RACING FORMULA ONE TEAM SPECIAL EDITION.”
The new Red Bull Racing Special Edition is available in two different watch versions, one with a stainless-steel bracelet and one with a blue rubber strap.
In 2016 TAG Heuer became the official partner and timekeeper of the Red Bull Racing Formula 1 Team and accompanied all the race-winning moments of the team up until Max Verstappen’s outstanding victory in the final race of the 2021 season to win the World Drivers’ Championship.
TAG Heuer will continue to support the Red Bull Racing Team with the two partners recently announcing the extension of the relationship until 2024.
