Tag Heuer was founded in 1860 by Edouard Heuer and was bought later by Techniques d'Avant Garde. It was only then that it got its present name of Tag Heuer.
The CAU1112.BA0858 from Tag Heuer is a gorgeous watch with its bracelet made of stainless steel and featuring a three link easy link design for greater comfort. It also has a fold over clasp with a safety mechanism that keeps the bracelet secure when worn. The bezel of the watch is made of stainless steel and has a silver finish. Three hands adorn the black dial of the watch. While the hour and the minute’s hands have a greyish tone, the seconds’ hand sports a bright red tone in order to improve visibility. Hour indexes of this timepiece are displayed using rectangular markings. Only the 12 hour marker is represented through an Arabic numeral. A scratch resistant and anti-reflective sapphire crystal protects the dial of the watch. Three sub-dials are present on the main dial, they are chronograph hour, minute and seconds’ dials. One is placed at 12 o’clock, the other at the 9 o’clock position and the third at the 6 o’clock position. The Tag Heuer shield is displayed below the twelfth hour index, while just above the sixth hour index, the word Formula one is printed.
The Formula 1 model from Tag Heuer has hour indexes and hands on the dial that are luminescent. They glow in the dark and make viewing time possible even in the dark. A date function is present next to the 4 o’clock posoition. A quartz movement is responsible for the watch’s perfection in time telling. It is waterproof to a depth of 660 feet, thus you can indulge in light water activities and sports like swimming and snorkeling, while wearing the watch without any fear of damage.
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.

Not to mention this watch is a chronograph which sports three dials respectively for seconds, minutes and hours. The bezel sports a speedometer dial.
Now lets concentrate on the chronometer. If one is a watch aficionado, he/she must know that it was built in collaboration with the Mercedes-McLaren F-1 team and it was tested by Jenson Button himself.If you are not aware, TAG was the 1st company in the world to introduce the 1st quartz chronograph. So watch comes with a guarantee of superior workmanship. The 1/10th sec. quartz chronographs can measure up to 12 hours of elapsed time to within 1/10th of a second. So precision has been a forte of TAG. Water resistant upto 200 m, it can be used while you are taking a swim(if only you want to carry your watch to the pool). Scratch resistance is another of the features which can ensure that it can handle a bit of strain. Wear and tear proof.
As I wanted to get an automatic watch for myself, I settled for a Longines, I loved every bit of this watch. If you are a F-1 fanatic, a Merc-McLaren fan and you want an ultimate quartz chronograph, this is precisely the thing for you. 4/5... Go for it :)
