Inspired by prominent race car livery colors like green, yellow and red, Swiss luxury watchmaker TAG Heuer presents three new stylish Formula 1 chronograph models in fresh, energetic colors.
Green, yellow and red have been signature motorsport colors for decades. The three new Tag Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Chronograph models come with a harmonious and dynamic play of contrasting colors and subtle unique details for each reference for a cool statement look.
The 43-mm case is in fine-brushed stainless steel with 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 luminous sunray brushed dial of the new Tag Heuer Formula 1 Chronograph features 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.
Each of these new TAG Heuer Formula 1 chronographs comes with a streamlined and textured rubber strap, whose vivid hue seamlessly matches the dial.
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.
And for the red edition the 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.
These new TAG Heuer Formula 1 Chronograph models are available from September 2022 in TAG Heuer boutiques, on the brand’s e-commerce websites and at select retail partners.
In the United States, the suggested retail price of the new TAG Heuer Formula 1 Chronograph is $1,850.00.
