The luxury watchmaker releases new special edition Formula 1 timepiece to honor “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing”...
A watch in the shades of autumn
Sunny days are behind us and they’re getting shorter. The temperature is falling down, which means that, aside from our mood, the way we dress also changes…
But, how do you pick a watch which will perfectly highlight your fall layers?
Watch designed for the first colder days, should have a rugged look in beautiful autumn hues of mustard yellow, rust orange, caramel brown, army green, or burgundy wine color, ideally complemented by a calf or alligator leather bracelet.
In the fight of stainless steel bracelets, rubber, NATO and leather straps, we give a slight preference to leather models, which fit perfectly with casual, smart, sporty and formal styles.
On vintage watches, sports or smart watches - leather strap is synonymous with elegance. Models with that kind of a strap are as diverse as human characters.
TAG Heuer uses only the best leather available on the market, where you can choose a leather strap that is strong, soft and flexible for your wristwatch.
This kind of strap fits for your wrist like the finest pair of leather driving gloves, without cracking or flaking, and can last for years. Simple. Practical. Perfect.
Ladies watches with leather straps exude elegance and luxury. Like the little black dress that is an enduring classic, a simple dial - such as the Carrera Lady - displayed on a minimalist leather strap never goes out of style.
If you want to take your game to an even higher level this fall - spice things up with a colored alligator strap, which is the perfect companion to classic watches.
Regardless of your style and the occasion in which you wear your watch, a leather alligator strap can highlight your favorite model in the most effective way.
The TAG Heuer leather watch strap resists many weather and temperature challenges, following the company's #dontcrackunderpressure slogan. Before they end up on the wrist of your arm, the straps are subjected to numerous endurance tests, and each strap, whether it is calf or alligator skin, has been tested more than 5,000 times.
Severe perspiration, extreme moisture, high friction - no challenge remains untested. Straps are exposed to as much as 60C for 72 hours, and only the strongest end up with you.
Black and brown leathers are natural, vibrant materials that change in hue, age, develop and adapt. Of course, there are many types of leather such as: full grain, top grain, nubuck, suede, cordovan, while motoring enthusiasts will be especially delighted with the rally leather strap with perforations.
Rally straps are easily recognized by three or more large perforations. Car racing is first and foremost a test of speed, and weight directly plays the biggest role in that arrangement - as such, many early race cars had parts with punched holes. To be aesthetically pleasing, driving gloves (and later watch straps) also received perforations.
Like the best wine, leather straps get better as they age, developing unique patina and authentic characters, tailoring a unique life story each time.
