The special edition formula 1 chronograph is inspired by the same rich blue and striking red and yellow colours found on the newly revealed 2020 Aston Martin Red Bull Racing RB16 car.
Conceived in close collaboration with the F1 team, the 43mm special edition chronograph is youthful, sporty and easy to read in all conditions. Proclaiming the strength of this partnership is the watch’s renewed sleek design, which takes inspiration from the new Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Formula 1 car that was presented on February 19th, 2020 in Barcelona, Spain. The blue of the car is found on the watch’s dial and aluminium fixed bezel. The chronograph seconds hand is coated in eye-catching Red Bull yellow and touches of Red Bull red are prominently placed on the tachymeter scale. An azurage pattern on the chronograph counters and a date window at 4 o’clock on the dial enhance the daring and sporty aesthetic of this model.
The steel screw-down case is engraved with the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing team logo over a chequered pattern. The quartz-powered chronograph is presented on a robust stainless steel bracelet which includes a drivers’ extension to fit the watch over a racing suit.
A road-tested endurance machine, water resistant to 200 meters and highly shock resistant, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Special Edition has endured more than 60 quality control tests.
