In celebration of the start of the 2021 Formula 1 racing season, TAG Heuer has launched its Formula 1 Collection, consisting of a three-hander and three chronographs, all with 43mm diameter steel cases and quartz movements. Leading the way in automotive-inspired luxury watches, TAG Heuer timepieces have been worn by some of the most iconic drivers in the world. The new collection features vibrant shades of orange, green, and yellow highlighting the bezels and dials. On the caseback, checkered flag engravings are found to signify the importance of not only the collection itself but the heritage of automotive racing.
The three-hander, in the best tradition of the robust TAG Heuer Formula1 series, looks like it will take a beating – with its screw-down crown, crown guards, and an orange and grey stitched nylon strap that will survive plenty of abuse. It is probably the clearest to read of the quartet with white and black hands and markers standing out well against the orange dial. Apart from the available dial and strap options, the three chronograph models are identical. Each dial has a grey base with a stippled texture that contrasts against the brighter hands and dial markers. Buyers can pick bright yellow, along with a yellow stitched nylon strap, the same yellow but with a brushed bracelet, and red with the same brushed bracelet. For all four models, the quality quartz movement is equipped to hold a power reserve of 42-hours and boasts 200-meter water resistance.
