A diving watch, also commonly referred to as a diver’s or dive watch, is a watch designed for underwater diving that features, water resistance to a minimum depth of 1.0 MPa (10 atmospheres), which is the equivalent of 100 m (330ft). This Tag Heuer Formula 1 watch CAZ2012-BA0876 is water resistant to up to 200m (660ft).
The pilot’s watch was first created in 1904 by Cartier but the design was re-invented for pilots in the first and second world wars and this is what today’s pilot watches are based on. Today you would expect a pilot’s watch to include a tachymeter, allowing the wearer to calculate speed, distance travelled, fuel consumption, etc. All our pilot’s watches have at least this functionality.
A chronograph function is a tool for accurately measuring the passage of time such as a stop watch. On Analogue watches you will usually have independent sweep second, and minute hand which can be started, stopped and reset.
A tachymeter is simply a means of converting elapsed time (in seconds per unit) to speed (in units per hour). A tachymeter is a scale sometimes inscribed around the rim of an analogue watch with a chronograph. It can be used to calculate your current speed of motion based on the time you have been travelling.
The function performed by a tachymeter is independent of the unit of distance (e.g. miles, kilometres, metres etc.) as long as the same unit of length is used for all calculations.
Your new Tag Heuer Formula 1 watch CAZ2012-BA0876 will arrive in its official Tag Heuer case, and full manufacturers two year guarantee, making it the perfect gift and keeping it immaculate through time.
