    TAG Heuer, it's time to bring back the original Formula One.

    I love your vintage chronographs as much as the next guy. Okay, maybe not enough to write 9, 500 words on the vintage Heuer Carrera (*cough* Ben *cough*; though I did help edit it! ). But the Heuer carrera Carrera Reference Points ends in 1985, when TAG (short for Techniques d'Avant Garde) acquired the struggling watchmaker. Where that story stops is where the Formula One fun beginsAs Ben wrote, after the LABEL acquisition, "along came the actual Formula 1, and all the great TAG Heuers I remember from my childhood. " In 1986, TAG Heuer gran carrera introduced the first Formula One particular. They had bright colors, plastic bezels (and steel core cases), rubber straps, and quartz movements. The first year was relatively tame, with the line made up of reds, blacks, and greens. But by 1988, things were certifiably kooky - cases as well as bezels came in powder blue, pink, vibrant yellow, and more. It was basically nothing of the things the particular vintage Carrera was, but that's what made it so good, so fun, and so different.
    "The Method One has typically the distinction of being the first collection that was released under MARKING Heuer ownership, " Heuer fanatic and also proprietor of On The Dash Jeff Stein told me, though development would’ve begun before the TAG acquisition. By 1986, Heuer already had more connections to motorsports than the Andretti family, so the purchase by INDICATE, which produced parts for Formula A single cars, merely sealed consent to for a "Formula One" watch.

    I'm too young for the TAG Heuer carrera Formula One to have been a part of my child years - POINT only created it through 1986 through 1990, along with my formative years in the '90s were filled mostly with Mario Kart in addition to Beanie Babies instead. But even I know: There's a place for a plastic material Formula One in the modern view world.
    Obviously, we have to mention the mammoth-sized MoonSwatch in the room, especially with its one-year anniversary soon making its way around the sun. It's fun, plastic-type, and all the things the Formulation One could be (except available online).

    "I'm not sure that an inexpensive, new version from the Formula Just one will be received in the same way as the MoonSwatch, " Stein said, "but it would be fun in order to walk into the local TAG Heuer gran carrera Boutique and see a display case full of these colorful, enjoyable watches. inch

    But there's also the nostalgia factor. For many in this era, the F1 was an entry point into watches. You're telling me that Ben Clymer or any other child of the '80s is going to stroll by a DRAW Heuer boutique, see a brand new plastic Food One in often the window and not buy three of them? I'll take the over.
    One thing TICKET Heuer currently does well is not take itself so damn seriously, something the watch industry could use more of. I weirdly loved the Mario Kart Tourbillion - the perfect wink to be able to TAG Heuer's racing history while admitting that it's all kind of silly too. Many that, please.

    And I don't even have a problem with the modern Formula Ones. They're vivid, they're colorful. But sometimes in watches, we have our heads shoved so far up our collective crown hoses, we forget that an entries level watch that costs $1, eight hundred isn't really entry level at all.

    That's why a modern quartz, plastic
    MAKE Heuer Health supplement One that costs a few hundred bucks would be so exciting for TAG, and for enthusiasts new plus old.
