TAG Heuer, Formula 1 Watches

TAG Heuer presents its latest Formula 1 watches just in time for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix – “If everything seems under control, you’re not going fast enough.” Mario Andretti. AED 6,045 for steel bracelet, AED 5,460 for nato strap – Formula 1 Red Bull Racing Special Edition Quartz Chronograph 43mm

A landmark agreement back in December 2015 saw TAG Heuer become the Official Timekeeper & Official Watch of the Formula 1 Red Bull Racing team. The two brands announced the new name of the 2016 car, “Red Bull Racing – TAG Heuer RB12”, with TAG Heuer being included in the team’s official name. It is the first time a watchmaker has ever been named directly in the official title of an F1 team.

TAG Heuer is introducing two special series TAG Heuer Formula 1 Red Bull Racing Team watches. The steel chronograph bears the team’s colours, midnight blue and red, an alliance which naturally alludes to the racing mindset. Adorned with a bezel sporting a tachymeter scale in matte blue aluminium, this piece reflects the DNA of the TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection perfectly. The watch is available in two versions, one of which has a steel bracelet in keeping with the watch brand’s flagship models. So what is new? This model is also available with a strap made from technical textile for a sportier look, with red stitching inspired by the seat belts of racing cars.
