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.

Elsewhere in watches, LVMH has followed in the footsteps of Rolex and Patek Philippe by withdrawing from Baselword as well.
