Tag Heuer Formula F1 Review

Tag Heuer Formula One Watch

The Tag Heuer F1 watch has had more than a few new looks over the last couple years. This is the best design to date in our opinion. It is clean and uncluttered for a chronograph, the big seconds window at the six o’clock position looks much better than the previous versions. This F1 is 41mm, water resistant to 200m, and has a sapphire crystal. The bezel is coated with a scratch resistant titanium carbide, it is surprisingly hard to scratch. The bracelet on this watch is very comfortable and well built for this price point. It is also offered on a rubber strap which looks a bit awkward coming out of the lugs. The watch is powered by a Swiss quartz movement and this Tag can handle some abuse. 

Pros - Functional, aesthetically well designed, nice size, rugged.

Considerations - Tough price point at 1K + for a standard quartz movement
