TAG Heuer Formula One model.

Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer, part of LVMG Group, became the official timekeeper and official watch of the Formula 1 Red Bull Racing Team last December.

 

TAG Heuer is also now included in the official name of the team’s 2016 racing car, the “Red Bull Racing – TAG Heuer RB12”. TAG Heuer’s has also become part of the team’s official title.

 

The timepiece manufacturer has unveiled two special series TAG Heuer Formula 1 Red Bull Racing Team watches, celebrating the partnership.

 

Both references have diameters measuring 43mm, with cases made from polished and brushed steel. Both have blue dials and a matte blue aluminum bezel, on which there is a silver-plated tachometer scale. They are available with a steel bracelet or a strap made from technical textile.

 

They use the Ronda 5040D Quartz chronograph movement with a date window at four o’clock.

 

The dial comes in blue with three white counters: a 1/10 second counter with a chronograph house counter at six o’clock, a chronograph minute counter at nine o’clock and a current seconds counter at three o’clock.

 

The dials facets, including the hour and minute hands, are polished with luminescent markers.

 

The straps are available in triple-row brushed steel with a brushed steel strap, or a blue strap made from technical textile with red stitching that is inspired by the race cars’ seat-belts.

The Formula 1 Red Bull models will be on sale worldwide from this August, with a price of approximately AED5,460 for the nato strap and 6,045 for the steel bracelet. The collection is limited but is not numbered.
