With its rugged styling and sporty good looks, the Formula One series watch from TAG Heuer is designed to work as hard as you play. This version features a black dial with three-hand function, luminous hands and markers, hand-applied Arabic numerals, and a date window at the 4 o'clock position. Surrounding the dial is a black unidirectional rotating bezel with engraved dive time markers for safe timing of dives and other limited events. The bezel is crafted from steel with PVD titanium treatment for superior strength and durability. Oversized flutes make it easy to grip and turn. Other notable features include precise Swiss quartz movement and a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The dial is set in a steel case that measures 42-mm in diameter and is accented on the sides with black protective bumpers for added durability. It presents on a triple-link brushed steel bracelet that fastens with a double-locking foldover clasp. A built-in extension system allows for length adjustment so that the watch can be worn
TAG Heuer traces its roots to the small Swiss village of St-Imier where, in 1860, a watchmaker named Edouard Heuer opened his first shop. His vision was to create remarkable timepieces that pushed the envelope of innovation and precision. The company's reputation grew, and Heuer's first patent for a chronograph mechanism in 1882 was followed by a long list of achievements: the first stopwatch accurate to 1/100 of a second, the first dashboard stopwatch for race cars, the first miniature electronic timekeeping device accurate to 1/1000th of a second, and the first automatic movement with a microrotor, to name just a few.
Over the years, Heuer's reputation for gold-standard precision earned the company the privilege of providing official timing services for a number of world-class competitive sporting events, including the Olympic Games, the FIS Ski World Cup, and the FIA Formula 1 World Championships. To this day, TAG Heuer maintains a close association with the world of competitive sports and enjoys a devoted following among sports celebrities and enthusiasts. In 1985, Heuer joined the TAG (Techniques D'Avant-Garde) group, and the TAG Heuer name and logo were created. Now one of the most recognized and sought-after watch brands in the world, TAG Heuer continues its reputation of innovative design and technological excellence, creating prestigious timepieces that are always at the cutting edge of precision, reliability and style.
