Generally, I don’t think there’s any other Watchmaker that’s as devoted to the field of sport as Tag Heuer. Since the 1910s, the Swiss watchmaker has been a pillar of precision to the drivers on land, waterway, and even the skies. Although the Tag Heuer watches were iconic among the automobile racers in the ‘60s, the Tag Heuer Formula 1 collection transformed the platform largely. This was enhanced by its design which featured a combination of the Swatch’s bright colors with a quartz movement in its analog display.
Leaving the story for another time, let us look at some of the best Tag Heuer Formula 1 Chronograph watches for your exotic wheels.
TAG Heuer Formula 1 Chronograph Blue Steel
Every classic car color has a sweet story behind it. And so should be your watch. Although I have never affirmed my concept from the watch’s designers, I believe Tag Heuer Formula 1 CAZ1014.BA0842 got its display color from Porsche Ossi Blue. The outer casing of the watch is highly-polished steel with a fixed bezel in “Ossi blue” color. This bezel has a tachymeter scale, thus, very helpful if you’re a man of speed.

Tag Heuer Formula 1 Calibre 16
Some people fancy “flashy” colors, while others want it cool and serene. Despite Tag Heuer Formula 1 throttling with colorful sophisticated watches, the collection also has sporty modish designs, one of them being model CAZ2012.BA0970.
For the men with a humongous liking, this Tag Heuer model has a 44mm steel case with a fixed ceramic matte black bezel. The0 bezel has an engraved tachymeter scale that ensures your love of high speeds is served right too.

Some time back, Tag Heuer Formula 1 watches were only available in Quartz movement. To make sure they have been able to care for those who cherish sophistication, in the encompassed models there are those with mechanical movements. Tag Heuer CAZ2012.BA0970 amongst them with its 25-jewel caliber Calibre 16.
While there have been several discussions on Calibre 16 and Calibre 5 movement, on my end I believe the two are related. If you take our CAZ2012.BA0970 and Tag Heuer Formula 1 Caliber 5 models like WAZ2011.BA0843, for instance. You will realise the two have almost similar casing (disregarding the chronograph features). Furthermore, all the other Tag Heuer Watches running with Calibre 5 movement reserve power for up to 42 hours, just like HeuerCAZ2012.BA0970. The only difference is that it offers multiple functions. They include, hour-minutes time, chronograph (1/4 second, 30 minutes, 12 hour), and fast date correction.
Just because Tag Heuer introduced Formula 1 watches from the F1 racing doesn’t mean you can’t have them for your casual dressing. They are still stylish and reliable even when not behind the wheels. Therefore, if you’re not able to enjoy the speed of Formula 1 engine on the track. Then have it off the track on your wrist.
