First Look: TAG Heuer Formula 1 GMT David Guetta Edition (Ref. WAZ201A)

Last Updated on June 22, 2019 by Calibre 11

French DJ David Guetta is the latest TAG Heuer ambassador to have his name linked to a special edition watch- the 2015 TAG Heuer Formula 1 David Guetta Edition. Perhaps linked to Guetta’s proclivity for nighttime entertainment and travel, the watch offers a second time zone, or GMT function through the Calibre 7 movement.

TAG Heuer Formula 1 GMT DAVID GUETTA WAZ201AThe watch is based on the Calibre 7 GMT version of the Formula 1 released last year, which debuted the Black/ Blue color scheme for TAG Heuer’s GMT variants.

The main differences between the standard GMT and the Guetta edition are:

  • Black titanium carbide-coated steel case
  • Revised hour-markers with blue inserts, including TAG Heuer logo at 12 o’clock
  • Blue-filled Hands
  • Black Calf-skin cuff strap

TAG Heuer Formula 1 GMT DAVID GUETTA WAZ201AHaving been slow to introduce alternative-style straps, TAG Heuer has brought out a range of good-looking NATO and Sailcloth straps at Baselworld 2015, with more styles to be shown throughout the year.
