Is the Tag Heuer F-1 CR7 a Great Watch?Print
Tag Heuer Brand Ambassador since 2014 and Soccer Phenomenon, Cristiano Rinaldo, can now add Chronograph Designer to his growing resume! Tag Heuer just unveiled its newest Formula 1 design, a collaboration with the superstar athlete, the Formula 1 CR7.
Based on the Formula 1 Chronograph, the CR7 model sports a black and green color scheme on the bracelet, dial, and hands, a reference to the Real Madrid soccer player’s team’s colors.
Another unique feature is the checker-patterned dial and its contrast to the three circular registers on its face. The one at the 9 o’clock is for minutes, the 6 o’clock one is for tenths of a second, and last one boldly labeled with the model number, CR7, at the 3 o’clock position displays current seconds.
Both the bezel which holds the tachymeter scale and the whole 42mm case itself are made of steel coated by titanium carbide. This timepiece is waterproof up to 200 meters and its steel case back is emblazed with the CR7 logo.
The nylon straps used by the British Army in World War II provided the inspiration for this timepiece’s black and green NATO strap. The buckle, keepers and pin are also made of 316L stainless steel contributing to the both sporty and chic feel of this dynamic chronograph.
Adding to its inherent beauty is the gorgeous box the chronograph comes with.
Attractively priced at $1,550 MSRP, in a numbered limited edition of 3,000, is a watch that is sure to excite watch connoisseurs and soccer fans alike.
