In 1999, TAG Heuer was sold to French Luxury goods conglomerate LVMH. It was earlier was owned by Techniques d’ Avant Grade, who had purchased the company in 1985, and named it as TAG Heuer. It was originally founded by Edouard Heuer in 1860, and was known as Urhenmanufaktur Heuer AG.TAG Heuer S.A., is a Swiss manufacturing company that designs, manufactures, and markets watches and other fashion accessories. The company is of a wholly owned subsidiary type. Based at Neuchatel, in Switzerland, the company procured its first patent in the year 1882, and in 1887, for the ‘oscillating pinion’, which is still used by major watchmakers of mechanical chronographs. The Tag Heuer Formula 1 ranges of collection presents before you a set of the most sporty looking watches manufactured by the company.
The TAG Heuer Formula 1 Grand Date WAU111B.BA0858 has an athletic look, and is packed with features. Housed in a 42mm round steel case, the watch creates a style statement of its own. The white dial is engraved with indexes in grey, which are etched with luminescent makers to improve readability. Pointing at the indexes, the hour and minutes hands are also etched with luminescent markers to improve visibility in dark. Embedded with Arabic numerals, the bezel makes time reading easier. The dial is protected by a scratch resistant sapphire crystal, which boosts the durability of the watch. It has a screw-down crown. The steel bracelet has beautiful interlinks, that complements the look of the watch.
There’s a date display window at 6 o’ clock, and a running seconds counter at 3 o’ clock. There’s also an alarm counter, with a special spiral effect at 9 o’ clock, increasing the functionality of the watch. This timekeeper is water resistant up to 200 m under water, and will stay fastened to your wrist even while you are swimming or snorkelling. Powered with quartz movement, the watch keeps time with remarkable accuracy.
The Formula 1 collection of watches by Tag Heuer exemplifies the brand’s belief in excellence when it comes to precise timing and sleek aesthetics. Drawing inspiration from the McLaren Formula 1 team, these watches are the ultimate witness to Tag Heuer’s superior crafting and technological skills. A complete overhaul of the existing structure of the Formula 1 was witnessed in 2015, leading to two parallel editions of the collection, both of which offer ideal timepieces for racing as well as horology enthusiasts.
Tag Heuer’s reputation for innovation is upheld by the revolutionary ceramic made specifically for this line. Watches from this collection sport cases made of stainless steel, which is coated with black titanium carbide in certain editions for enhanced durability and an athletic allure. Simplistic index markers with occasional Arabic numerals denote hourly intervals of time. The dials are offered in shades of black, grey, and white, with multi-hued adornments bringing out the artistic mastery of the brand. Feminine versions of this collection sport bezels and dials imbedded with jewels for an element of glamourous appeal. Fluted working on the crown allows for a secure grip for comfortable adjustment of time, while at the same time adding a dimension of intrigue to these watches. The bracelet options are numerous- ranging from mono-toned to dual toned steel and rubber, to allow the watch connoisseur complete freedom in taking his pick.
Until 2015, the Formula 1 collection was renowned for producing watches that sported only quartz movements. However, the latest edition of this line presents immaculate automatic movements for precision timekeeping. Most watches from this collection display the time in hours, minutes, and seconds, in addition to calendar apertures that provide a view of the current date. Chronograph versions of the line incorporate multiple sub-dials and tachymetric scales, controlled via additional screws positioned on the case.
