We have written about other Bucherer edition watches before, such as the “Tudor Heritage Black Bay Bronze Blue” which you can read more about here.
The “Bucherer Blue Editions” is comprised of an iconic collection that only includes timepieces crafted by the very best manufacturers. The central theme in this collection resides on the color blue, which has been a source of inspiration for artists throughout the ages. A “blue” hue tends to evoke the sky and sea, but can also recall the “noblesse” and its mythical blue blood lines. It is a dignified color properly suited for an exemplary fine line of luxury watches.
The 43mm case made of stainless-steel with a mix brushed and polished finish. Mounted to the case is a blue rotating aluminium bezel with a 60-minute scale engraving. It also comes equipped with a setting-crown that has the TAG Heuer logo engraved to it.
On its flip-side we encounter a stainless-steel screw-on case back, with a special checkered flag engraving covering its upper-half, while the inscription “Exclusively for BUCHERER” can be read on the lower-half. Besides this being a Bucherer edition it is also aimed at the Formula 1 fan, hence the finishing flag decor. Finally the watch is all topped by a sapphire crystal, which assists with water-resistance on this watch being able to reach up to 200 meters (656 feet).
Time is exhibited on a blue sun-ray effect dial with hand-applied white hour index markers and the Arabic numerals 6 and 12 that have all have steel outlining; followed by smaller white printed second index markers, thicker minute markers and two-digit numerals for every five-minute increment.
On the lower half of the dial can be seen inscriptions that read: “TAG HEUER”, “CALIBRE 5” and “FORMULA 1”. While the brands logo is under the 12 o’clock position on the upper-half of the dial. There is also a date aperture at the 3 o’clock position and the steel chronograph hand has a TAG Heuer logo shaped counterweight. The central steel hands, hour index markers and Arabic numerals have all been fitted with a luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility.
