For a long time TAG Heuer has been the official timekeeper of race car events, including for the Scuderia Ferrari team in the 1970’s, the F1 McLaren team since 1985 and a long run with Formula, for which TAG created an entire collection of Formula 1 watches.
The Formula 1 collection offers both men’s watches and women’s watches. They are superior timekeeping instruments as well as being very sporty, with attention to detail.
The newest edition to the TAG Formula 1 family came out in May of 2009. Worn by the FIA Formula 1 2008 World champion Lewis Hamilton, this TAG Heuer Formula 1 Calibre S 1/100th Chronograph is a welcome member to the Formula 1 family that allows the wearer to read elapsed time more quickly, quite a feat considering these cars are travelling at hundreds of miles per hour.
There are four models from which to choose from. With super luminescent numerals, indexes and hands, each of these TAG watches offers extreme readability under all conditions. They run on a Ronda 6004B quartz movement which can measure 1/10th of a second.
The case measures 44mm and is made from brushed stainless steel.
There are two dials, one is black with luminescent numerals and indexes and the other is luminescent with black numbers and indexes. The lacquered skeleton hands also have luminescent markers. The watch comes with six quintessential TAG Heuer features: the unidirectional turning bezel with scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, “Easy Grip” crown (made from scratch-resistant titanium), is 200 meters water-resistant, with luminescent markers and comes with a double safety clasp and diving extension system. The crown is where the monochrome TAG logo is.
The bracelet comes in two options, a rubber strap with pin buckle or a three-row fine brushed steel bracelet with safety clasp and diving extension system.
Both the TAG Heuer Formula 1 men’s watches and the TAG Heuer Formula 1 women’s watches offer a stylish and powerful look. The women’s watches come with diamonds and a large variety of dial colors and straps.
