Billed as a bold and energetic timepiece, the latest iteration in TAG Heuer’s Formula 1’s dial is adorned with Gulf’s emblematic, “sporty” blue and orange livery. The former and latter shades have also been applied to the six o’clock-sited subdial. Orange accents can also be found on the nine o’clock-sited subdial, the minute hand and TAG Heuer emblem at 12 o’clock on the fixed, steel-aluminium bezel. “Gulf” lettering, finished in white, can be found next to the latter item. A darker shade of blue has been applied to the remaining sections of the sunray-brushed dial.

The dial is wrapped in a 43 mm fine-brushed and polished stainless steel case, which offers water resistance at depths of up to 200 metres. The screw-down case back is also fashioned from steel, and features the two brands’ emblems. The case is coupled with a fine-brushed steel bracelet, replete with a steel folding clasp with double safety system. Offering a driver’s extension, the three-row bracelet can be worn over a racing suit.
