Nevertheless, The TAG Heuer Formula 1 possesses a special place in the brand’s history. Moreover, for that time – back in 1986 – this was also the first watch released following the acquisition of Heuer by Techniques d’Avant Garde (“TAG”). Moreover, Tag Heuer Formula 1 becomes also the watch of its time when they released it. In fact, it was the first analog Heuer/ TAG Heuer series with a quartz mechanism and also to this day it remains the same – no automatic model ever released.

Like the Monaco duo, this watch carries the famous blue and orange colors of Gulf Oil. whose color was clothed by the Le Mans-winning Porsches of the late 1960s/ early 1970s, including the Porsche 917 driven by fictional driver Michael Delaney (Steve McQueen) in the 1971 movie Le Mans.

Indeed, the beauty of theTag Heuer Formula 1 comes from its nice combinations of sporty and also colorful styling with a durable quartz movement at a very reasonable price.
