and date dial that ex­poses the work­ing parts un­der­neath in an at­trac­tive way. The skele­ton is coated in black with cutouts for ap­pliqué rhodi­umed in­dexes with Su­per-Lu­miNova red ac­cents. There are three sub­di­als: two for chrono in brushed steel and a small sec­onds in black. The rhodium-plated hands are coated with white Su­per-Lu­miNova, while the chrono hands are in red.

The move­ment re­vealed be­neath is a markedly re­worked ver­sion of their Cal­i­bre 1887, which we have seen in TAG Heuer’s ex­tremely pop­u­lar Car­rera range. The new Cal­i­bre Heuer 01 is des­tined to be just as pop­u­lar, if not more so. The other plus is that the move­ment is a com­pletely in-house man­u­fac­tured chrono­graph with a red col­umn wheel. The case is stain­less steel and a com­plex work of 12 dif­fer­ent com­po­nents. It has all the right el­e­ments to give big­ger ri­vals a run for their money.

FOR­MULA 1 DAVID GUETTA

There couldn’t be a more apt per­son­al­ity to rep­re­sent TAG Heuer in the club­bing world than Europe’s hottest DJ, David Guetta. From Ibiza to Hong Kong, his mu­sic has en­tranced mil­lions of club­bers around the world. He rep­re­sents the new gen­er­a­tion that is ac­tive, sporty and cul­tur­ally dis­cern­ing. The For­mula 1 David Guetta is one watch that cap­tures this EDM icon com­pletely, with a GMT func­tion to sig­nify his global per­sona. The watch is al­most all black but im­bued with strong blue ac­cents. The dial is black opa­line with steel hand-pol­ished ap­pliqué hour in­dexes with blue Su­per-Lu­miNova. The hour and minute hands are rhodium-plated with blue Su­per-Lu­miNova, while the 24-hour GMT hands are coated in white Su­per-Lu­miNova. The blue and black alu­minium bezel has 24-hour mark­ings de­not­ing both day and night.

The au­to­matic me­chan­i­cal move­ment is a Cal­i­bre 7, with GMT func­tion. It is housed in a black steel case treated with ti­ta­nium car­bide that is wa­ter re­sis­tant to a depth of 200m. The watch comes with a leather strap and cuff. What are you wait­ing for, go get it! You can’t get a party watch that looks this good.

MONACO V4 PHAN­TOM When it de­buted in 2004, the V4 was a game changer. No one imag­ined that TAG Heuer was ca­pa­ble of push­ing the boundaries of haute hor­logerie for­ward in such a bold way. It kick-started the de­vel­op­ment of avant-garde haute
