Baselworld 2012: TAG Heuer Formula 1 Chronograph Date (Red Bezel)

Two weeks ago at the Geneva Time Exhibition, TAG Heuer launched 18 completely new editions of its iconic Formula 1 watch (I already showed and analyzed my favorite, the small seconds + date models).  TAG did a great job — these are some exciting new pieces in TAG’s most popular collection.  Inspired by high-performance Formula 1 automotive technology, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 is for many a gateway watch into the world of fine timepieces (it was for me, at least).  With a quartz movement inside, this watch is all about external appearances — balanced colors and design, unpretentious, functional and super tough — an aspirational piece for many a young professional.   This said, let’s look today at another one of new, revamped TAG Heuer Formula 1 watches, this one a Chronograph model with a striking red aluminum bezel ring.   Again, big credit to TAG Heuer on a job well done with the revamp of the Formula 1 line this year.  Available at TAG Heuer retailers worldwide in April 2012.
