Even though the diameter is large at 43 mm, TAG Heuer has done a great job at keeping this watch sleek and sophisticated. It fits any size wrist even sleeker people without posing any problems or affecting the superior aesthetics. Every last area of the watch face is well-utilized, and the crown is easy to operate. There is no option for a rubber or leather strap, just the elegant stainless steel bracelet. Its chronograph offers a 3 o’clock register for seconds, 6 o’clock register for 1/10th of a second and one-hour, and a 9 o’clock register for the 30-minute mark.
America’s Favorite TAG Heuer
The water resistance is outstanding for a dress watch while the stainless steel hour markers are a perfect match to the casing and bezel. A luminescent fill works but could be better. Night-time readability is better than most watches in this price range, but this still doesn’t give you completely clear readability at a glance.
The sapphire crystal does a great job of deflecting reflections and stopping scratches, but there is not enough focus on nighttime luminosity to be competitive. However, it should be noted that these are but minor criticisms and do nothing to detract from the value of this great automatic watch. It is known as America’s favorite TAG Heuer for a good reason.
TAG Heuer’s new Formula 1 design carries just the right weight to feel like quality on your arm. It’s attractive and functional, but the Quartz movement also prevents it from being classed as a fully automatic watch. However, this is a small sacrifice to gain the precision and appeal of a TAG Heuer watch at this low price.
Another finer detail of its design is that this watch is geared towards motorsports enthusiasts. While subtle, this may sway your decision either way, but more most the combination of sleek design elements and functional attributes make it an excellent overall choice.
