Tag Heuer Formula 1 Grand Date Gulf Edition

The well-known Swiss watchmaker Rag Heuer is proud to present its new Formula 1 Grand Date Gulf Edition, a reinterpretation of its famous Formula 1 Grand Date. This edition comes as a recognition for the merits of the Gulf Oil racing team.

Even if the partnership between Tag Heuler and Formula 1 team started almost three decades ago and their creations never cease to impress us.

The new Tag Heuer Formula 1 Grand Date Gulf Edition features a large round 44mm stainless steel case outlined by a bezel crafted from the same material. The bezel sports 12 notches with minute graduation printed in 05-minute increments, while the watch is protected by a high-grade sapphire crystal and it is 200-meter water-resistant. There is a solid back case.

The back dial is adorned with a diamond-shaped pattern and incorporates blue and orange stripes personalized with the Gulf Oil logo. The display reveals oversized Arabic numerals and open-worked white hands for indicating central hours and minutes.

The large counter placed at 6 o`clock counts the small seconds, while the date is indicated in the lower part of the sub-dial.

The new Tag Heuer Formula 1 Grand Date Gulf Edition is powered by a Swiss made quartz Ronda 6004.B movement. This caliber features 5 jewels and makes possible a 43-month power reserve. The system is activated by pulling out the stem and it reduces power consumption by almost 70 percent when the timepiece is not in use.

This timepiece features a black rubber strap or stainless steel bracelet secured with a Trifold buckle with a safety clasp closure. The price is around $1000.
