We’ve certainly seen no shortage of colorful and bold racing inspired watches this year – some more welcome than others. Continuing on that action comes TAG Heuer with the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Gulf Special Replica Watches Review to commemorate Gulf Oil’s 1968 victory of Le Mans in France.
Measuring in at best tag heuer replica watches 43mm, the stainless steel case has an electric blue aluminum bezel with a notched tachymeter scale. The pushers are black PVD-coated and provide a neat contrast with the black sub-register hands, though I don’t feel that these actually match the watch or the Gulf Oil design. I think if they wanted the contrast, it wouldn’t have hurt to do them in blue. The back of the popular tag heuer replica watches features an engraved gulf logo. Tying the case together is a blue leather strap with orange stitching that matches the Gulf colors and draws focus to the flashiest part of the watch, the dial.
This watch has a tasteful influence that pulls from previous models, but by way of color and scheme and not a blatant logo. The sunray finished blue dial has light blue and orange racing stripes on the 3 o’clock side of the tag heuer replica review. A date window sits at 4 o’clock, and in a unusual turn of events, I actually like it there on this design. The Super-LumiNova filled applied indices provide a nice contrast to the otherwise busy dial.The quartz movement in this watch powers a chronograph function that’s accurate to within 1/10th of a second, a small seconds, and an elapsed minutes function – so a pretty standard chronograph. The swiss replica tag heuer watch is water-resistant up to 200m.
Overall, the Formula 1 Gulf Special Edition is a charming addition to the collection. The watch is equal parts quirky and functional with enough funk to be called anything but “boring.” And with the plethora of other colorful releases in the Formula 1 collection over the last couple of years, the tag heuer watches price list fits comfortably among them. I think this watch will appeal to a specific market of nostalgic collectors and race enthusiasts of a time gone by – or maybe just your average guy with a penchant for some good old-fashioned quirk.
