After updating its “Batman”-reminiscent Aquaracer diver earlier this month, Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer has now shifted its focus from the seas over to the tarmac, releasing a new green-dial racing chronograph for its Formula 1 line.
Measuring in at a slightly larger 44mm size, the watch’s stainless steel case houses a fully automatic calibre 16 sourced from Sellita, COSC-certified with a power reserve of 42 hours and running at 28,800 vibrations per hour. Sitting above the movement is a deep emerald sunburst dial featuring a date window at 3 o’clock, the chronograph’s three subdials at 6, 9, and 12 o’clock, and red and black accents for a racing-styled aesthetic. Hands and indices are all lumed with Super-LumiNova for enhanced performance in low light situations, paired with a green aluminium bezel insert functioning as a classic tachymeter. Completing the watch is an engraved caseback with a — a welcome departure from the Formula 1 series’ usual steel, rubber or NATO options.
The 2020 TAG Heuer Formula 1 Calibre 16 Green Dial is now available over on the company’s website or at select retailers, going for $2,800 USD. Head over to its website to learn more now.
