Review the TAG Heuer Formula 1 x Red Bull Racing Special Edition Replica

TAG HEUER has released a TAG Heuer Formula 1 Red Bull Racing Team special edition watch replica.

The watch beloved by F1 fans is back, a timepiece that belongs to the champions. TAG HEUER has released a  TAG Heuer Formula 1 Red Bull Racing Team special edition watch replica, which uses a stunning new color scheme and provides two watch models. As the latest addition to the popular TAG Heuer F1 replica series, the new watch pays tribute to the powerful alliance between TAG Heuer and the Red Bull F1 team.

To celebrate the friendly cooperation between the two parties, TAG Heuer has launched a new version of the replica F1 series of Red Bull Racing Special Edition watches. This outstanding co-creation demonstrates the values ​​shared by TAG Heuer and the Red Bull F1 Team and pays tribute to all Red Bull fans.

The Case & Dial

The clean and elemental 43mm stainless steel form of the new TAG Heuer Formula 1 Red Bull Racing Special Edition replica is shared with the rest of the Formula 1 line, but the brand adds a handful of special touches to set this one apart from the pack. The 2 o’clock chronograph pusher adds a vibrant red accent stripe, but the most extensive changes in images come courtesy of the tachymeter bezel. 

The heavy, gear-toothed bezel design is a TAG Heuer Formula 1 replica series staple, but the tachymeter scale itself has been completely reworked. Rather than the bold, oversized numerals of previous iterations, the Red Bull Racing Special Edition reintroduces hash marks to the tachymeter scale for a more technical look in images that should allow for easier legibility. The red “Tachymeter” text at 1 o’clock has also been abandoned in favor of a simpler “Speed” marking in white, flanked by a red silhouetted TAG Heuer shield emblem at 12 o’clock. When taken as a whole, this reworked midnight blue aluminum insert gives the new Formula 1 replica a more functional, detailed feel, moving it away from the simplistic chunky styling of its predecessor. TAG Heuer engraves the solid caseback with a cleanly executed Red Bull Racing emblem, coupled with a classic checkered flag motif. Like other models in the Formula 1 line, the Red Bull Racing Special Edition offers an impressive level of durability, with a hefty 200-meter water resistance rating.

TAG Heuer’s most extensive changes to the new Formula 1 Red Bull Racing Special Edition replica come through in its dial. While the deep blue sunburst finish of the main dial remains the same, nearly every other dial element has been tweaked for this 2022 model. The simple applied indices of previous iterations are replaced by applied Arabic numerals, with a bold squared-off design supposedly inspired by modern racing dashboards (modern Formula 1 cars use a far less stylized digital display for vital information including RPM and the current selected gear, however). 

These new numerals are surrounded by a new outer chapter ring in Red Bull’s signature red and yellow color scheme. At 5 o’clock and 7 o’clock, this new design adds a pair of printed white accent markings, meant to evoke the look of the painted starting positions on a racing grid. In contrast to the most complex, technical look of the main dial, TAG Heuer takes a simpler, more graphic approach to the replica Formula 1 Red Bull Racing Special Edition’s subdials. Rather than the black subdials of the previous generation, TAG Heuer continues the blue base color into the subdials and reworks each subdial’s scale with a bolder, more colorful design. At 3 o’clock, the running seconds subdial abandons numerals entirely in favor of a minimal graphic scale, and the 9 o’clock chronograph minutes subdial’s bolder numerals and red accents make it an eye-catching addition in images. 

The 6 o’clock 1/10-second subdial is the boldest of all, however, with an outer ring in a punchy blend of yellow and red. Lastly, TAG Heuer replaces the tapering baton handset of previous Formula 1 models here, instead opting for a polished skeleton design that gives the dial a more complex, modern look in initial images.

The Movement

TAG Heuer powers the new Formula 1 Red Bull Racing Special Edition replica with the Ronda 5040D quartz chronograph movement. Affordable, robust, and capable of 1/10-second precision, the 5040D has been a mainstay of the TAG Heuer Formula 1 line for years, although it lacks the drama and prestige of the brand’s in-house mechanical powerplants. To complete the design, the brand offers the Red Bull Racing Special Edition with a pair of strap options. The first is a simple brushed oyster-style three-link bracelet in stainless steel. For those looking for a more contemporary feel, TAG Heuer debuts a new navy blue rubber strap design with this model, with a fabric texture and raised central stripe.

Conclusion

With a new, more sophisticated and technically advanced design and a bolder color scheme, the newly revamped Tag Heuer Formula 1 Red Bull Racing watch replica is updated for the new generation of Formula 1 cars while maintaining the sporting spirit of the collection. The starting suggested retail price for this TAG Heuer Formula 1 Red Bull Racing is $2,000.
