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

Last Updated on

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- Standard vs. GuettaThe most distinctive feature of the watch is the cuff, which replaces the traditional strap. It’s made from aged calfskin and is reminiscent of the Bund-style cuffs/ straps from the 1970s, albeit with a modern twist.

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.
