The companies have been working together for four years and this 43mm chronograph has been crafted to reflect their shared aesthetics. It's a sleek-looking design and was directly inspired by the new Aston Martin Red Bull Formula 1 car unveiled on February 19th in Spain.
The steel Tag Heuer is blue like the racecar with red and yellow accents. It's got a date window at the 4 o'clock mark and the rear case is engraved with the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing logo. It's also quartz-powered and comes on a steel bracelet.
This is a real tool watch, too--it's shock-resistant and water-resistant to 200 meters or just over 655 feet. Tag Heuer claims it has put the timepiece through "60 quality control tests."
Tag Heuer's larger Formula 1 collection was first launched in 1987 and has always reflected the longtime intimate relationship between the brand and racing--one that's been embodied by association with stars like Steve McQueen, the iconic actor who was also a passionate racer.
That's just one reason Tags, in general, are such excellent watches--for all their glamor, they're still tough, reliable, and eminently durable.
The TAG Heuer Formula 1 Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Special Edition 2020's other complications include minutes and 1/10th seconds subdials, a permanent second indicator, and a central chronograph seconds hand.
There are brushed steel pushers at 2 and 4 o’clock, that Aston Martin Red Bull Racing engraving on the caseback, as well as a blue sunray brushed dial, rhodium-plated indexes, Super-LumiNova coated hour and minute hands and a yellow lacquered central hand.
