Jewellery & Watch News
For the second time in the history of their 4-year-long partnership with Aston Martin Red Bull Racing, TAG Heuer release a remarkable special edition TAG Heuer Aston Martin Red Bull Formula 1 watch to commemorate their shared values for performance, power and fearless competition. The new release comes hot on the heels of the latest car introduced by the F1 team, the RB16, designed for the 2020 Formula One World Championship whose colours have directly inspired the colourful aesthetics of the watch.
TAG Heuer has been the official timekeeper of Red Bull’s Formula 1 racing team since 2016, but oddly we have only seen one watch to mark the association. Thankfully, things are being put right this year with the stunning new TAG Heuer Aston Martin Red Bull Formula 1 Special Edition offering customer’s the ultimate racing chronograph for those who want to experience the adrenaline of motor racing on their wrist. The TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection has become the brand’s bread and butter, offering the perfect starting point to entry level buyers who desire a whole lot of technical prowess within a fixed budget. Retailing at only £1,395, this new TAG Heuer special edition is the perfect piece for a budding collector.
First created in 1987, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection brings to life the extreme performance of the Formula 1 teams with sporty dial designs and high precision movements at their core. The TAG Heuer Aston Martin Red Bull Formula 1 Special Edition watch is no exception with the Ronda 5040D quartz movement, considered one of the most reliable and accurate made in Switzerland, promises an almost perfect precision with a variation of only a few seconds per month. The movement is kept housed within a 43mm brushed steel case protected by scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass, a screw-in crown and a screw down case back decorated with a special decoration commemorating the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Team.
Greatly inspired by the new RB16 car, the dial of the TAG Heuer Aston Martin Red Bull Formula 1 watch is bought to life with supercharged livery colours including a sunray blue metal face, red accents, black azurage sub-counters and a yellow lacquered central hand. The blue ratcheted aluminium bezel also pairs with the dial decorated with a red and silver coloured tachymetric scale. For optimal legibility of the hours and minutes, Superluminova coats the sleek steel hands while the chronograph seconds is instantly legible highlighted in bright yellow. The quartz movement also provides three subsidiary dials for running seconds, a 30 minute counter and a 1/10th second counter. The angled date window at 4 o clock completes the sporty finish as it blends in with the angled Superluminova applied indexes.
The new TAG Heuer Aston Martin Red Bull Formula 1 Special Edition watch is available to order today at W Hamond retailing at £1,395 and available with free next day delivery and interest free finance options.
