These watches are very handsome, overall the newer Aquaracer 500 pieces are quite handsome. You can read more about these 43m wide watches here where I first discussed them. The Aquaracer Leonardo DiCaprio Edition watch was limited to 1, 600 pieces, but you can still find a good number of them online. While the connection (both thematically and visually) to Leo could have been much luxurious AAA Tag Heuer Aquaracer Replica Watches UK, it is a satisfying design with a solid personality, that builds upon an already good looking watch.

This is the entry level, most basic model in the newly refreshed Tag Heuer Formula 1 watch line up and I love it. I am still swooning over the Tag Heuer Formula 1 Grande Date watch, along with other more recent Formula 1 timepieces. The collection hasn't look this good or fresh since the 1980s.

Pretty much any man can pull of this watch, and the price is hard to beat for the design and quality. I would say the only drawback is that it has a quartz movement, but Formula 1 timepieces always have had such movements - it is part of the range's ethos The Swiss quartz movement on the inside is easy to live with, so deal with it. The watch case is 41mm wide in steel with a PVD black titanium bezel and crown. This is really a major thing, as older basic Tag Heuer Formula 1 watches had mere plastic bezels. So the last few years of these metal ones has been highly appreciated. The case with its lugless design is really fantastic. The side of the case says "Tag Heuer, " and the case is water resistant to 200 meters and has a sapphire crystal. This is really one of our modern classics. Tag Heuer watch collections each have interesting signature elements to them. They do a really good job with features like that, and the Formula 1 pieces are no different.

Unlike some of the "fancier" new Formula 1 watches, this model (ref. WAH1110. BA0858) has a basic three-hand dial (with the date). There are four Arabic numerals in the new font Tag has been using. Dial is black with white indicators and red accents. Just a very well put together design if you ask me.

As of right now I think that black and olive green are the only colors that this watches in. For that other color see the Tag Heuer Formula 1 Khaki watch here. The watch comes on a steel metal bracelet or rubber strap. Great deal for that. This is quite possibly a perfect everyday casual sport watch.

2011 saw both super high-tech and decidedly retro watches from Tag Heuer. The most retro of which was probably this "re-issue" Monza. The Monza came back briefly in 2003 with an updated look using the traditional cushion case. For 2011 original look from the 1930s is back. There is no hiding that this is a retro-themed timepieces. It doesn't attempt to be "classic, " by instead to offer a look from times long past, in today's quality and materials. The dial is all 1930s and the case is much more 1970s. According to Tag Heuer the design of the watch draws from both eras. In steel, the case is 38mm wide and cushion shaped. I like the brushed bezel and polished outer side of the case. The dial is exceptionally easy to read with its high contrast hands and numerals. Tag Heuer uses their "heritage" logo that is just "Heuer, " with "Monza" right above. The numerals are very retro looking and they used a cream colored lume outlined in blue (to match the hands). The bi-compax dial layout for the chronograph is fitting, and inside the watch is the Calibre 36 automatic. I believe this is actually a Zenith El Primero high-beat automatic. This is one of the most sought after Tag movements, and you can see it through the sapphire display back. The automatic movement is COSC Chronometer certified. Don't miss the date window covertly placed between 4 and 5 o'clock. Tag Heuer watches like this aren't made for mass consumption - like many of the heritage collection pieces, this will be part of a limited edition of just 1911 pieces.
