The Tag Heuer Formula 1 Indy 500 replica watch celebrates TAG Heuer's role as official timekeeper and partner to the world's most thrilling race. Its black engraved tachymetre scale proudly displays the motto INDY 500” in racing red. Red too is the chronograph hand, ticking off 1/10th of a second. And there's another very special touch. The case back is beautifully engraved with a brick pattern, paying homage to the bricks of the Indy 500 finishing line.

The name Tag Heuer strikes awe and adoration into the hearts of watch aficionados worldwide. This Tag timepiece honors one of the world’s most thrilling races – the Indy 500. Tag serves as the official timekeeper and partner to this amazing race. Tag Heuer has had a special relationship with competitive racing through the efforts of brand leaders like Jack Heuer. Tag Heuer continues to pursue horological excellence with a vigor that isn’t seen in many brands of similar price points.

As a homage to the Indy 500, Tag inscribes the name of the race on the fixed bezel, usually where the word tachymeter normally goes. Indeed, the bezel does feature a graduated tachymeter scale displayed in oversized, black Arabic numerals. Tachometric scales are used to determine mean speed over a given distance. This complication is a staple on any timepiece that is racing oriented. The case is crafted from a solid block of stainless steel and it is finely brushed for a totally modest appeal. The bezel is also brushed but does feature some polished elements towards the edges.

The flange boasts a conservative minute scale which adds a utilitarian look to this replica watch. The chronograph is of the 1/10 of a second variety. The subdial at 6 indicated the split seconds while the register at 10 indicates the chronograph minutes. The chronograph seconds is indicated by a red hued central hand for enhanced visibility.
