Probably the most well known watch from Tag Heuer.
The Formula 1 Chronograph comes from the day of the McLaren/Tag Heuer mythic livery that to this day remains one of the most beautiful and iconic liveries ever used on a race car.
The Formula 1 Chronograph is also one of the most affordable watches from Tag Heuer which makes this watch a best seller and still in the current line up of Tag Heuer.
