TAG Heuer Formula 1 Gulf and Monaco Gulf
Last weekend, at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, TAG Heuer unveiled the Formula 1 Gulf Special Edition, plus a 50-piece limited edition of the Monaco Gulf.
Fifty years ago, on 29th September 1968, the Ford GT 40, sporting the orange and blue livery of Gulf Oil, achieved its first victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Last weekend in Le Mans, TAG Heuer, a partner of Gulf, revisited the famous race to celebrate this auspicious anniversary by launching two flagship models from the TAG Heuer collections bearing the legendary orange and blue of Gulf.
TAG Heuer Formula 1 is the ultimate automotive model, synonymous with performance and speed. Entirely in steel and measuring 43 mm in diameter, this quartz chronograph features a notched steel bezel and an aluminium ring with a tachymeter scale. On the dial, two blue and orange stripes recall the model's origins. The case-back is engraved with the Gulf logo. The movement is accurate to a tenth of a second – an indispensable feature in a motor racing watch – displayed on the small counter at 6 o'clock, with the minute counter at 9 o'clock and the current seconds counter at 3 o'clock. The watch is worn on a finely-crafted blue leather strap with orange stitching for a sporty, stylish look.
