The TAG Heuer Formula 1 TWG Limited Edition
It doesn’t take a genius to find the correlation between the worlds of racing and watches. The easy connection to make is obvious; if you’re lapping an opponent by a hundredth of a second, it takes a pretty serious piece of timekeeping equipment to keep you up to speed. But there’s also far more between the industries of watchmaking and racing than first comes to mind.
Both find themselves constantly seeking the highest levels of performance and precision, striving for the best, determined to outdo the competition. And the history of racing and fine watches is both long and closely connected. In 1911, TAG Heuer received a patent for the first dashboard chronograph, designed for use in automobiles. Heuer became a leading producer of stopwatches and timing equipment for automobile races, and soared in popularity amongst professionals, amateurs and crew members. To date, TAG Heuer have stayed relevant in the world of racing, developing watches for the McLaren F1 team, launching ten generations of the racing-inspired Carrera, and being a partner of Formula 1 for over twenty years.
The TAG Heuer Formula 1 is a high-performance timepiece, launched more than thirty years ago but continually evolving into the genre-defining racing watch we see today. But with a reputation for innovation, TAG Heuer has not been content to rest on its laurels.
The Swiss watchmaking juggernaut has for the first time collaborated with The Watch Gallery to create a new limited edition timepiece, The TAG Heuer Formula 1 TWG Limited Edition. This striking new collaborative piece re-imagines the classic Formula 1 chronograph whilst taking inspiration from the signature The Watch Gallery’s blue hue, with a sapphire blue aluminum bezel and chronographs, perfectly offset against the sleek black dial and brushed steel bracelet.
Interested in the racing credentials of this fine limited edition? The timepiece features a 1/10th of a second chronograph, the running second counter at 3 o’clock, an hour chronograph counter at 6 o’clock, the minute chronograph counter at 9 o’clock and a tachymeter scale to the bezel.
With a fine-brushed steel bracelet, this limited edition piece can be styled for all occasions; smart or casual, business or leisure. It meets the ultimate standard of a wear-everywhere watch with exceptional watchmaking credentials.
Priced at £1,250, and featuring a numbered (XXX/200) engraving on the caseback, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 TWG Limited Editionis limited to two hundred pieces worldwide- a winning combination in the pursuit of racing excellence.
