A pure embodiment of the liberating spirit of the racetrack, TAG Heuer have given their iconic Formula 1 reference an eye-catching makeover now with an unmissable orange asphalt dial. The release comes alongside several other new TAG Heuer Formula 1 models including a duo of chronographs similarly dressed in vivid colours, but none quite stands out quite as much as the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Orange watch under reference WAZ101A.FC8305.
For several years now, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 watch collection has become the archetype of a robust, sophisticated sports watch but for many their classic blue, black and grey dial colours have become a little lack lustre. That can’t be said anymore however, as the iconic Formula 1 DNA is given a much-needed uplift with a striking bright orange textured dial. Described by the brand as their “asphalt” finish, the dial has a unique texture when viewed up close, one that takes inspiration from gritty surfaces of racetracks – the very landscape of which the TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection is born from.
The orange dial also stands out for its choice of black coated hands for hour and minutes, black minutes ring and black lettering for the TAG Heuer logo. These elements are usually seen in steel but contrast much more effectively in the stealthy black colourway. The date window of the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Orange watch spotted at 3 o’clock also captures attention with a white backdrop and black lettering.
Not that the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Orange watch needs much more than its neon dial to capture attention, but its layout is also detailed with white Superluminova applied indexes and hands at the centre for legibility in all lighting conditions. These glow in the dark accents would work just as well on land as they would underwater, a feature made possible thanks to the 200 metre water resistant screw down case back and screw in crown. The robust notched black ceramic bezel also assists those hoping to take their TAG Heuer Formula 1 watch on an underwater adventure with the surface engraved with a 60 minute diving scale, a bold orange triangle marker and notched detailing for easy control even when wearing thick gloves.
Delivering the same sporty and shock resistant aesthetic we’ve come to expect from TAG’s Formula 1 range, the new orange reference is presented in a solid stainless steel case which measures to 43mm in diameter with fine brushed and polished finishing. The same finishing can also be found on the screw down back adorned with the familiar chequered engraving characteristic of the luxury watch collection. Hidden behind the case back is a Swiss made quartz calibre with delivers classic three-hand complication for hours, minutes and seconds and a date window at 3 o’clock.
The final element of the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Orange watch that we can’t leave without mentioning is its trendy black nylon strap. Textile straps have certainly become more popular over the past few months, offering a more casual and comfortable finish to a piece of luxury wrist wear. Reference WAZ101A.FC8305 is delivered on a black textile strap handsomely detailed with a combination of neon orange stitching and grey stitching and fastened to the wrist by a classic stainless steel pin buckle.
