TAG Heuer WAZ1111.BA0875 Review: Formula 1 Bracelet Watch


This men’s watch comes in a bold and sporty design.

It is minimalistic and consists of only the necessary things. This ensures the dial is clear and neat. Like other Formula 1 timepieces, it draws inspiration from Formula 1 racing.

This TAG Heuer WAZ1111.BA0875 review zeroes in on the most worthy features.

A Bold and Sporty Stainless Steel Case

One notable thing about the timepiece is that it looks daring and sporty.

The company achieved this by doing away with the iconic shape we have become accustomed to. Instead, you get a sportier look.

One thing that has not changed is that they still use stainless steel on the case and also the bezel. This gives the piece the strength and longevity it needs to put up with the use.

It is highly polished for extra panache. The bracelet/band is also made of polished stainless steel.

One undeniable fact is that the watch can be said to be large (41mm) and heavy (15.84 ounces).

The case thickness of 11mm is also on the high end of the scale.

Simple Neat White Dial

One thing we give the company credit for is keeping things simple.

The dial is plain white with no shiny or fancy features. You also don’t get all manner of insignia, texts, or subdials.

Instead, you just come across the standard sticks (hour, minute, second), a basic day/ date window, and bold luminous stick hour markers.

Beneath the 12 o’clock point is the company logo while at the 6 o’clock marker is the TAG Heuer name and formula 1 one inscription.

By keeping things simple and having a large dial, viewing time should be easier.

And to improve this effect at night, the markers and hands have good luminosity.

The rhodium plating on the indexes, hands, and numerals provides the luminescence

Simple Analog Display with Precise Swiss Quartz Movement

Like other watches in the series, it comes with analog display.

This exudes a timeless and classic appeal that the watches are known for.

The numerals and other functions run smoothly and are well laid out.

Many consumers consider this timepiece among the most accurate. The unit operates silently and smoothly.

The hands move seamlessly and feel powerful at any angle. The reason behind this is the Swiss quartz movement.

TAG Heuer developed this mechanism to keep up with the goal of high performance, precision, and minimal maintenance.

Sapphire Crystal with Black Stainless Steel Bezel

The hands, numerals, and dial, in general, are protected by a sapphire crystal. It also gives clear views of the time and date/ day function.

The material is many times tougher than mineral and acrylic. It also is less likely to be scratched or scuffed.

While it doesn’t have any antiglare coating, the glass doesn’t suffer from reflections or glare even in bright light.

Surrounding the glass is a unidirectional turning bezel.

It comes in simple black color and like the case and bracelet; it’s also made of stainless steel.

For extra protection and a touch of class, it is coated with titanium carbide.

Our Verdict

This is without question a brave and fashionable piece.

It will appeal to most men and is fit for both formal and casual wear. We like the bold and sporty nature, the robust and durable stainless steel construction, and the good accuracy and professional appeal.

It’s definitely one of the best watches out there.
