How much does a TAG Heuer Formula 1 watch cost?

The TAG Heuer Formula 1 is a collection of swiss luxury watches that took inspiration from racing, hence the name. Launched in 1983, TAG Heuer introduced a series of quartz watches that are both affordable and are applicable in a competitive environment—particularly racing. Back then, the price was never a problem for all luxury watches, but due to their heritage and established brand name, the pricing for most watches skyrocketed as the years went by.

With that in mind, how much does a TAG Heuer Formula 1 watch cost?

The TAG Heuer Formula 1 Automatic Chronograph CAZ2012.BA0970 is the first watch in the Formula 1 collection to have an automatic movement. Since the release of the Formula 1 collection, TAG Heuer consistently manufactured quartz movement watches for affordability purposes and to fit in the competitive scene. That is why the release of the Formula 1 caliber 16 took the masses by storm and greatly popularized the whole Formula 1 collection.

The Formula 1 Automatic Chronograph is built differently compared to its quartz chronograph predecessors. It sports a 44mm stainless steel case that perfectly fits in a race car driver’s sleeves. It is completely durable and is built to withstand shock like most sports watches. It also has a 200 meters water resistance capability to expand its usage in various situations. The dial used is a sunray brushed grey with applied indexes. The hour and minute hands, as well as the hour markings, are coated with Super-LumiNova to increase the optimal readability at night.  All of these combined create a beautifully stylized watch whose features transcend racing.

The movement used in the Formula 1 Automatic Chronograph is the caliber 16. This caliber movement allows the watch to last for 42 hours when not in use. Plus, it also has a consistent frequency of 28,800 vph to provide a balanced and accurate movement of each mechanism. 

Overall, the Formula 1 Automatic Chronograph is a successful attempt of TAG Heuer in creating their first Formula 1 watch that has an automatic movement. This led to its price being quite expensive compared to its fellow Formula 1 watches. It is currently listed at $3,400 USD. It is a fair price for an automatic chronograph watch and is the first one with an automatic movement in the whole collection.

After the release of the first automatic movement in the Formula 1 collection, TAG Heuer was prompted to create more automatic models. The popularity of the aforementioned model led to the creation of calibers 5, 6, and 7, which are distributed on three separate Formula 1 watches. Each watch has a unique function, but the materials used are mostly the same.

To start, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Automatic WAZ2011.BA0843 is equipped with the caliber 5 automatic movement. It offers a simple design and functionalities that are worth its value. It has a 43mm steel and ceramic case that offers a 200m water resistance and shock absorption, making it a great sports watch for racing and any athletic activities. It has a sunray brushed grey dial with applied indexes with Super LumiNova technology to increase night visibility. Plus, it has a date aperture located at 3 o’clock. 

Equipped with the Caliber 5 automatic self-winding movement, this model has a power reserve of 38 hours. It is only a few hours shorter than the Formula 1 caliber 16, but the frequency rate is still at 28,800 vph. This allows the model to have an accurate telling of time and date without having to worry about constantly adjusting it.

The TAG Heuer Formula 1 Automatic WAZ2011.BA0843 has a retail price of $2,200 USD. It may seem expensive, but the features of this watch provide more value than its existing price; therefore making it a great buy for those who prefer automatic watches.

Next is the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Automatic WAZ2012.BA0842. This watch model comes with the caliber 6 automatic self-winding movement. The caliber movement is an improved version of the caliber 6 since it has a power reserve that can last up to 42 hours. The frequency is still the same 28,800 vph.

This caliber 6 model has a black opaline dial with applied luminous indexes that are enclosed in a 41mm polished stainless steel case. The beauty of this watch relies on its plain metallic design that offers simplicity and formality due to its polished steel finish. Plus, its durability is the same as the other Formula 1 models with a water resistance of 200m. It is a watch that stands out despite its plain design. The date aperture and the seconds sub-dial are what keeps it apart from the caliber 5 and 7 models.

The listed price for the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Automatic WAZ2012.BA0842 is $1,850 USD. It is an affordable automatic model that has all the necessary features that a sports watch should have along with the iconic Formula 1 design scheme.

And last, but not least is the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Automatic WAZ211A.BA0875. With the caliber 7 used, this model has a GMT functionality to allow its wearer to expand its usage on different time zones. This watch is popular with pilots, race car drivers, and other athletes who are frequently traveling across the globe. Aside from that, the caliber 7 has the same capabilities as the caliber 6 which is the 42-hour power reserve and the 28,800 vph frequency. In summary, the only difference it has is its GMT function.

The 41mm polished stainless steel case is used to provide durability and style. Plus, the bezel can be turned since it can be adjusted to match the current time zone. The dial is also in black with applied indexes. There are four hands: Hours, Minutes, Seconds, and the GMT. The GMT hand points at the bezel where the 24-hour marking can be found and adjusted. The blue arrow is what separates it from the rest and matches the blue half-colored bezel. 

The pricing for the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Automatic WAZ211A.BA0875 is $2,200 USD. The GMT capability is a great addition that helps make traveling easier for its wearer.

At a glance, it may seem like all of the watches in the Formula 1 collection are made only for men. This is not the case, since most of the watches are a comfortable fit to any wrist size. The only apparent problem is the diameter size of the case which is quite hefty. That being said, several models are made for women. 

One of these models is the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Ladies Watch WBJ131A.BA0666. This is an elegant quartz watch that has a Mother-of-Pearl dial and a bezel fitted with 36 diamonds. The dial, as well as the diamonds in the bezel, perfectly complements the 35mm polished stainless steel case. The fact that it does not have any bright colors in the mix makes it an extravagant piece that is perfect for a woman’s wrist. It is a sturdy watch that can withstand shock and has a 100m water resistance, making it an ideal sports watch despite its elegant look.

The listed price for the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Ladies Watch WBJ131A.BA0666 is currently at $2,150 USD. The diamonds are what make this watch an amazing addition to a woman’s collection or a connoisseur’s. It may be a quartz movement, but it has the capabilities of a luxurious watch that gives it its own identity.

One of the most iconic Formula 1 watches is the TAG Heuer Formula 1 WAZ111A.BA0875. This watch model is equipped with a quartz movement that can be found on the majority of watches in the Formula 1 collection. The first line of the Formula 1 series was released with a quartz movement to allow affordability and less hassle in winding or running out of power when not in use. 

This model was created with the sports technology that TAG Heuer accumulated throughout their years of experimentation and innovation in the world of racing. The timer and alarm features provide an accurate display to assist race car drivers or motorcycle racers in achieving speed records. The rugged design adds a robust look that can easily be distinguished as a durable watch. Its 41mm stainless steel case gives it a perfect blend of a formal and sporty exterior. With 200-meter water resistance, it can be determined that this watch can go through several harsh conditions without any form of ruin.

The dial is an opaline black that has applied indexes to match the stainless steel exterior beautifully. The dials for the alarm and the seconds are both placed at 4 o’clock and 3 o’clock respectively. The date aperture, on the other hand, is located at 6 o’clock. These are placed strategically to avoid clutter and provide a legible reading of time and date.

The price of the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Men’s Watch WAZ111A.BA0875 is currently listed at $1,500 USD. It is by far, one of the cheapest models in the Formula 1 collection. Despite its price, it delivers its functionalities well.

TAG Heuer Formula 1 Special Editions

Since TAG Heuer has been hands-on in providing racecar watches, several iconic collaborations were released under the Formula 1 collection. Three popular special edition watches are sought after by racecar connoisseurs and collectors. These are:

  • 1. TAG Heuer Formula 1 X Senna - $2,200 USD
  • 2. TAG Heuer Formula 1 X Red Bull Racing - $1,800 USD
  • 3. TAG Heuer Formula 1 X Indy 500 - $2,200 USD

These three watches are all in different color schemes that correspond to the brand TAG Heuer is collaborating with. The base model used is the Formula 1 Quartz Chronograph, which is a 43mm polished stainless steel case with chronograph dials and a fixed ceramic bezel. These models are made to endure shock and have a 200m water resistance. 

All in all, these special edition watches are perfect for racing fans due to the popular tributes and watch designs. It should also be noted that these are limited editions as well, which means the price may go up as the years go by.

History Behind the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Collection

The TAG Heuer Formula 1 embodies the passion of the Swiss watchmaking company towards automobiles. Throughout the years, TAG Heuer witnessed the evolution of automobiles and how they were incorporated into the real world. This prompted them to manufacture several instruments that can be installed on dashboards. From then on, several years of innovation, as well as determination in expanding its reach in the watchmaking industry, made them well-known in the racing industry. 

Released in 1983, the Formula 1 collection was the go-to wristwatch of the racing community. TAG Heuer dedicated an entire collection in hopes that these models will assist race car drivers during a race. Back then, the movements used in each Formula 1 watch were quartz and encased in a synthetic case. This provides an affordable price range back in the day. Plus, its lightweight nature provides maximum comfortability on the wrists of professional racecar drivers.

In 2012, TAG Heuer released the first Formula 1 watch with an automatic movement, the caliber 16. The successful release of this watch paved the way for TAG Heuer to release calibers 5, 6, and 7. All of which quickly flew off the market since their release. 

The designs for the Formula 1 collection evolved throughout the years. It managed to be consistent with its predecessors concerning its compatibility with drivers and athletes with only a few minor changes.

Reasons to Buy a TAG Heuer Formula 1 Watch

Aside from being made with the sole purpose of assisting racecar drivers, the Formula 1 is a collection of diverse and flexible models that can fit in any situation. It is not strictly for racing, it can also be worn by several athletes since it is considered a sports watch that has 100m to 200m of water resistance. The designs and functionalities exude elegance and flexibility, allowing the wearer to take it to various formal and recreational events.

Though the Formula 1 series may not have vintage models, this collection would still fetch a high price shortly due to its heritage and iconic designs. The most notable designs would be the special editions. The price range is also at an affordable rate, allowing both experts and beginners to acquire one even on a strict budget for a luxury watch. 

The whole Formula 1 collection is a great series of watches that apply to anything and can fit anyone. The only downside would be the quartz movement found in the majority of the collection. Nonetheless, each model is worth its respective price.

TAG Heuer Formula 1: Embodying Class and Sporty Demeanor

The TAG Heuer Formula 1 is a great collection of watches that provide class and a sporty demeanor. Not only are they made to last, but the durability of each watch also captures the harsh competitive environment of a race. TAG Heuer made sure that Formula 1 is open for everyone with its stylish design and high-tech functionalities—it is truly a watch for all.
