Review of TAG Heuer WAH1112.BT0714 Men's Formula 1 Strap Watch
TAG Heuer WAH1112.BT0714 Men's Formula 1 Strap Watch
out of 5
TAG Heuer is noted for being a major sponsor of Formula 1 racing and is bringing the luxury and thrill of Formula 1 racing into its watches. One of the most notable watches that the company is using is the Men's Formula 1 Strap Watch. This is a luxury watch that features some of the most impressive features around.
A black rubber strap is used on the first part of this watch. This strap is very durable and flexible without creating too many indents inside of it after it is worn for a period of time. A buckle clasp is used for the strap as well. This clasp was easy to control and adjust in both up and down forms.
A Swiss quartz movement is used on the dial of the watch. The Formula 1 watch features stainless steel hands and numbers alongside a convenient calendar feature. The numbers on the outside of the dial relate to specific minutes in the day and make for a fancy addition to the watch. This makes the watch more appealing for the rugged traveler.
The face on the watch is completely red in its color, thus making it stand out. A great thing about the red color is that it does not stand out too much. It is of a proper dark tone that is more comfortable for the eyes and the user alike.
The face and hands are both covered by a sapphire crystal. This crystal passed all of its scratch tests.
The box for the watch came with its very own stainless steel case. This case is useful because it can protect the watch and in tests was able to keep the watch from moving around. Even after through the case with the watch down a flight of stairs the watch still came out unharmed.
The box states that the battery can last for at least a full year. Fortunately, in the event that the battery does die out the back of the dial can be easily opened up to get a new battery in.
TAG Heuer states that the Formula 1 watch should go for about $850. However, when I got this watch it cost only $650 to get. Therefore, it is best for anyone to look around to see what values are available for this watch. A good deal can be made on this fashionable and sporty luxury watch.
