TAG Heuer Red Bull Racing Formula 1 Limited Edition Watch Review
Thursday - 01 September 2016
The stunning TAG Heuer Red Bull Racing Formula 1 Limited Edition is an exciting result of the collaboration between the luxury watch label and the racing team. TAG Heuer is particularly inspired by Red Bull Racing’s unorthodox approach to the sport and entertainment making a perfect pairing. Both hold uniqueness and individuality in high regard, with a hunger for being the first.
Remaining true to their belief TAG Heuer are the first watch brand to be directly associated with an official F1 team designation. It is no secret, that TAG Heuer have an iconic, longstanding relationship with Formula One yet the young, dynamic and driven team appeal to the watch label to introduce a new spark of innovation, modernity and excitement; an enthusiasm that will allow for TAG Heuer to stand out against rivals. Both parties share an intent passion for racing and a desire to operate in a unique, unconventional way - a formula (excuse the pun) that will bring originality to the forefront.
The matte blue immediately leaps from the dial complimented by the hint of a sharp red and crisp white. The 3 sub-dials attract attention with their white base and red-tipped hands. The deep red hue embraces the fine second hand and minute indices in addition to the Formula 1 marking on the blue dial. The combination of colours with no trace of a racing logo provides a sophisticated, clean watch face in all its 43mm; a refined, sporty aesthetic well suited to the new alliance.
The case back features an engraving of the Red bull Racing logo; a stunning addition to the stainless steel casing. A slender case houses the quartz movement allowing for the timepiece to be lightweight when fastened to the wrist.
The Limited Edition model is a stunning, modern TAG Heuer design influenced by the forward thinking minds of the Red Bull Racing team; an exceptional piece that embodies the attitude, passion and drive for innovation.
