Updated: July 29, 2021 by Exotic Irfan

TAG Heuer is one of the most popular Swiss watch brands in the world. It also has a reputation for being the watch for motorsports racers and racing sports fans. Its connection with the world of racing has been strong since the 1950s when both professional and amateur automobile racers wore Heuer watches. This was before TAG (or Techniques d’Avant Garde) acquired Heuer in 1985. Nowadays, no one would think that TAG and Heuer used to be separate companies.

A year after TAG merged with Heuer, the company released a new line of watches that take great inspiration from the world of racing. That model line is now called Formula 1, and it is one of the most popular watch models from this company. This watch features both automatic and quartz watches. But this article will focus on the best TAG Heuer Formula 1 Watches that run on quartz movement.

3 Best-Selling TAG Heuer Formula 1Quartz Watches You Can Buy

Tag Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Chronograph Ref. CAZ101AH.BA0842

Even before TAG joined forces with Heuer in 1985, the latter has been popular for making sporty chronographs. So it would make sense for the company to create a TAG Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Chronograph that would soon become one of the firm’s best-sellers. The Tag Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Chronograph Ref. CAZ101AH.BA0842 is a powerful and colorful watch showing multiple features and colors in one timepiece.

With a fine-brushed and polished steel watchcase of about 43 mm, this bright and rugged chronograph is perfect for men’s wrists. The Tag Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Chronograph Ref. CAZ101AH.BA0842 comes with a flat sapphire crystal so that the user could still read the display of the watch during racing. Another feature that improves the legibility of this chronograph is the Super-LumiNova on the hands and hour markers of the watch. This material allows the user to read the time on the watch, whether it’s night or day.

Other Attributes of the Chronograph

The Tag Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Chronograph Ref. CAZ101AH.BA0842 is not just a champion when it comes to legibility. This watch’s screw-down crown, coated with steel black PVD, ensures that the timepiece would remain water-resistant for up to 200 meters. The Formula 1 watch collection was not made to be a dive watch.

But you can still use this timepiece for most water-based activities like gliding and swimming. The bracelet of the Tag Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Chronograph Ref. CAZ101AH.BA0842 is just as beautiful. And it’s because the steel strap with a fine-brushed finish uses a steel folding clasp with a double safety system and driver extension to secure the watch. This mechanism shows that this chronograph is really made for racers and racing fans. 

Tag Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Watch Ref. WAZ101A.FC8305

The Tag Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Watch Ref. WAZ101A.FC8305 may not have a chronograph function compared to the first watch. But that doesn’t mean you should ignore this watch. This quartz watch is still among TAG Heuer’s best-selling watches for a reason. Perhaps the first thing you will notice on this watch is its bright dial.

The Tag Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Chronograph Ref. CAZ101AH.BA0842 has a gray-colored watch dial with orange hands and hour markers. On the contrary, the Tag Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Watch Ref. WAZ101A.FC8305 has a radiant orange dial with white markers and hands. But the differences end there, as both watches have the Super-LumiNova material on the watch hands and hour markers. This means that you will still be able to see the time on this quartz watch, regardless of the hour of the day (or night). 

Other Characteristics of The Quartz Watch

The watch hands and hour markers of this unique quartz watch also shine beautifully in green when taken in a darker environment or at night. But aside from being a colorful and sporty quartz watch, the Tag Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Watch Ref. WAZ101A.FC8305 is sturdy, thanks to its fine-brushed and polished steel watch case with about 43 mm. It also features a turning bezel made from ceramic and a case back made from steel as well.

This watch also has a water resistance of about 200 meters, so it’s safe to use it in most water-based activities although you should exercise caution if you plan to use it for diving. The Tag Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Watch Ref. WAZ101A.FC8305 has a date window on the three o’clock position and its band can be secured through a steel pin buckle you can see in most mechanical and smartwatches. 

Tag Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Watch Ref. WAZ1110.FT8023

Last but not least is the Tag Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Watch Ref. WAZ1110.FT8023, which is also a quartz watch similar to the second watch. But unlike the first two watches that feature radiant colors, this watch keeps it simple with black and simple colors on every part of the timepiece, from the watch case and dial to the strap.

Both the crown and bezel of this watch are made from steel and coated with a black PVD material. Compared to the first two watches, the Tag Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Watch Ref. WAZ1110.FT8023 has a watch case of about 41 mm, which is a few millimeters less but it is still big enough to be a good men’s watch.

The watch dial of this particular quartz watch has an opaline finish along with a date window also positioned on the three o’clock side of the watch. Other than the color of the entire timepiece, the perforated black wristband of the Tag Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Watch Ref. WAZ1110.FT8023 is made of rubber and could be secured using a steel pin buckle. This is like the watch strap of the second Tag Heuer Formula 1 quartz watch and the bracelet of most watches from other manufacturers. 

Conclusion

The TAG Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Watches joined the best-selling watches made by the company for several reasons. They are sporty and stylish but they are also reliable and built to last. These watches also symbolize the deep connection of the brand with the world of motorsports racing. But you don’t need to be a professional or amateur car racer to use a TAG Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Watch. Because every man with good taste would definitely appreciate beautifully crafted sports watches with a deep history. And the TAG Heuer Formula 1 definitely belongs to that list.
