TAG Heuer WAC1215.BA0852 37mm Formula 1 Glamour Quartz for women

Typical to the Formula One collection line-up, this watch is a sizable one for ladies. A large size, if we may say. It has a sturdy round case that is made of premium grade stainless steel, with a charming high gloss execution that lends a lovely dose of elegance by its own. The case itself has a diameter of 37mm, and it is nearly a centimeter thick --which is slim enough for a lady’s sporty flavored timepiece as this one. At the other side of the case, the caseback is solid, and is engraved with markers. And, at the case’s right hand side, lays a logoed steel crown (screw-down type) that is fluted to makes it easier to use.

Goes without saying, this TAG Heuer WAC1215.BA0852 watch’s main attraction is its fabulous uni-directional rotating bezel, that is set with a lots of glimmering diamonds atop. 120 pieces in total, all are full cut Wesselton grade diamonds with I clarity minimum, and they weighs approximately 0.75 carats.

Dial. Encased within, is a clean looking White dial that is topped with an extra durable scratch resistant sapphire glass with an anti-reflective coating. The dial itself features silver-tone hands with SuperLuminova, applied stick hour markers with luminous dot over, a legible date aperture at 4:30, and painted Black minute markers around the periphery. It is such a nice face it has; neat, simple, well-balanced, and there is no issue regarding the read-ability at all either day or night.

Meanwhile, the link bracelet supporting the watch is formidable yet comfortable on the wrist, and fashioned with a nice combination of fine brushed and polished finish that blends seamlessly to the watch’s elegant looks. Speaking of which, this bracelet is around 18mm wide, and it comes equipped with a hidden deployant folding clasp.

Anyway, more than just a stylish wrist accessory, this TAG’s Formula 1 Glamour watch is also a reliable one when it comes to precise timekeeping. Inside, it is fitted with a Swiss made battery powered quartz movement, a caliber ETA F05.111 to be exact, that provides a precise three hands and an automatic date. The movement might be not a Chronometer grade, but, it does perform better than the most quartz with an accuracy of around ± 10 secs per month.

...

As expected from TAG, this TAG Heuer WAC1215.BA0852 timepiece’s overall built quality is superb, with a whole construction boasts a pleasing 200 m of water resistance so that there won’t be a problem if you’d like to go to swim while having it on your wrist. Still, the watch is not designed as a rugged wrist accessory so that you might need to get a hold for yourself when wearing it. It is true that Sharapova was once TAG’s ambassador for this timepiece’s line-up, but still, it weren’t meant to be worn when you’re playing tennis. No one forbid, though.

If fashion is your concern, between elegant and sporty, this timepiece has them both. But still, if you ask us, its sportive side is the winning side, may be due to the bold characteristic of its TAG Heuer Formula 1 signature design. As a wrist accessory, the watch is stylish (without a doubt), and it has an appreciable degree of versatility. It has an easy going colors, and pairs seamlessly with casual to formal dressing, but, not every "special occasion" attires will works as good as expected with it. Well, to be exact, when it comes to an elegant dressing, not every person looks good with it. Pardon us if we don’t exactly how to describe it, but maybe it related the the wearers’ images and personality themselves.

Last but not least, for all of its quality offering, this women’s diamonds accented steel on steel White dial TAG Heuer Formula 1 Glamour "three-hands, date" quartz battery powered luxury wrist watch is reasonably priced with an original manufacturer suggested retail price is $2,800.
