Chronograph
What is Chronograph? Chronograph is basically a stop watch watch. There are three chronograph counters for Tag Heuer Formula 1. The one of the cutting edge for Tag Heuer Formula 1 is that it can measure within 1/10th of a second up to 12 hours! Most of the quartz chronograph can only measure with a second. Tag Heuer Formula 1 allows user to measure within 1/10th second is good for measuring time that requires a better precision, e.g. Athletics.

Water Resistant
Tag Heuer Formula 1’s water resistant is up to 200m. It is no problem to wear it for any water activities, including diving.

Crystal
The watch is equipped with sapphire crystal. This can avoid scratching. Basically, it is a standard feature for high end quartz watch.

Bezel
CAH1110.BA0850 and CAH1112.BT0714 is unidirectional minute indicator while CAU1116.BA0858  and CAU1112.BA0858 is tachymeter. Personally, I like unidirectional minute indicator as it allows me to measure the time elapse by simply rotating the bezel to the minute hand.

Luminescent
The minute and hour hands are made of polished stainless steel with luminescent markers make the time that can be read easily in dark.
