TAG Heuer Formula 1 Automatic 43mm Review

Start your engines. We’re about to dissect in detail the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Automatic 43mm in this review.

We’ve had done some comparisons of a few different TAG Heuer Formula 1 watches in the past. Today we will just focus on one model. Let’s get started, shall we?

TAG Heuer Formula 1 Automatic 43mm Review

There are many TAG Heuer F1 watches that have a sporty look and can be worn just about every day. However, there is one model in this series with a design that has captured my eye. The one that we are focusing on today is reference number waz2011.ba0843 and features a bracelet made of stainless steel and dark grey ceramic.

The dark grey sunray dial uses applied luminous index hour markers for all hour markers except the 12 and 6 o’clock positions which use luminous Roman numerals. A white printed seconds and split seconds track circles the perimeter of the dial and a red downward facing triangle with a white interior is printed at the 12 o’clock position.

Polished steel is used for the hour and minutes hand and they are filled with a glow in the dark material. The second hand had a red tip and a TAG Heuer icon as a counterweight on the opposite end.

The new 43mm case has a water resistance of 200m/600/ft and has a solid steel case back with a radial brushed finish and a formula 1 checkered flag pattern engraved on it around the TAG Heuer Branding.

The right side of the case features a screw-down crown providing enough water resistance for some light snorkeling but not much more than that. The steel crown has a recessed red band in the center and has grooves designed into the shape making it easy to grip when winding the watch.

The radial brushed steel grey ceramic bezel has an engraved diving scale and tag icon engraved at the start position of the unidirectional rotating bezel.

One of the most beautiful yet subtle aesthetic features of this model is the finishing and material combination used on the bracelet. The outer links are brushed stainless steel, the dark grey ceramic inner links have polished steel caps. The combination of these two materials and finishing creates a contrast that is quite exquisite.

The bracelet first up to an 8-inch wrist and is fastened with a push-button deployant buckle that is branded with the TAG Heuer wordmark.

The TAG Formula 1 Automatic 43mm is powered by the TAG Heuer Calibre 5 automatic movement which has a 38-hour power reserve. This 26 jewel self-winding caliber beats at 28,800 and is an ébauche movement based on the SW200.
