TAG Heuer : A taste of podium success

The world of motor-racing has for several decades now become synonymous with TAG Heuer, which accompanies drivers and their fans through several iconic collections. Taking pole position among these sporty, sophisticated models, the brushed steel Formula 1 Calibre 16 Automatic Chronograph conveys an image of performance matched by precision. The comfortable legibility of its black three-counter dial with polished hour-markers is complemented by the tachometric scale indications on its polished steel bezel. The knurled easy-grip crown and pushers in brushed steel ensure optimally smooth operation. Fitted with a steel bracelet or black rubber strap, this boldly designed timepiece also enjoys a price positioning that naturally puts it on the podium of the most attractive big-brand chronographs in the paddock.
