After the dispatch of two effective unique releases in 2016 (we covered that one here ) and 2017 (and this one here ), TAG Heuer chose to proceed with the example of overcoming adversity with Max Verstappen.

The plan for the third piece started recently when TAG Heuer met him at Silverstone, where he addressed the plan group about his vision for the watch and his plan inclinations. In July, Max Verstappen visited the brand’s exhibition hall and assembling workshop in La Chaux-de-Fonds to dispatch the creation of his own watch.

Hotel Arena in Amsterdam

This third Max Verstappen exceptional release watch was introduced today during an efficient occasion in the Amsterdam . The structure of this inn once worked as a permanent place to stay for Roman Catholic vagrant young ladies. Afterward, toward the start of the twentieth century, additionally impaired and seriously sick ladies discovered accommodation. In WWII the structures have been involved by the German Nazis, after the war, the first occupants got back to the psychological organization. Monetary issues of the foundation made the last inhabitants leave the structure in 1982. At that point it turned into a permanent place to stay for ‘Dam-and Vondelpark Sleepers’ who could lease a bedding for a couple of dollars in the foundation as a city Sleep-In. After a broad remodel, Hotel Arena where this introduction of Max Verstappen’s watch was coordinated, opened on 7 February 2002.

Max Verstappen about the watch

About the watch, Max Verstappen clarified yesterday: “The watch is lively, with decent hustling colors in dark and red. The red was roused also by the Senna adaptation, which I for one like without question. Additionally the arm band, it helps me to remember the wristband I got from TAG-Heuer after my first Grand Prix win. Furthermore, obviously the red, white and blue line in the dial; no thought where that came from.. 😉 I think in general it’s a cool watch – precisely like what I needed it to be!”


Hands-on with the watch

After the authority introduction, we got the opportunity to deal with the watch and experience how it feels, all things considered. It unquestionably didn’t disillusion. Obviously, it very well may be seen that this watch was made for Max Verstappen fans in any case, more than in light of unadulterated watch devotees. I can envision that in any case TAG-Heuer, or Max, had decided for a mechanical development rather than the current quartz one.

But with everything taken into account, we preferred the watch, in actuality, obviously superior to we thought. We saw it from render drawings in the first press data, and it looked very level. As said that absolutely wasn’t the case, all things considered. The 43 mm case feels comfortably hefty thus does the arm band. All things considered the state of the watch and the wristband is with the goal that it wears comfortably on my 18 cm wrist. The watch is brandishing a level sapphire precious stone and has a steel screw-down case back with uncommon Aston Martin Red Bull Racing etching. Very little not quite the same as the 2016 and 2017 versions. Water-safe of the watch is 200 meters.

Some perceptions about the bezel

The dark clay tachymeter bezel is something which perplexed us most. As you will know a tachymeter bezel is utilized to compute speeds, and as such we might suspect it’s unusual that Max decided to introduce a bezel which has a maximum speed of 240. His Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Formula One vehicle should have the option to do substantially more than 240 km/h, abnormal to picked a bezel which stops by then at that point. Or then again it should be that the sign on the bezel was implied in miles each hour, which we can’t envision for a Dutch-conceived driver.

The tachymeter bezel has a grippy toothed edge yet clearly can’t rotate

Another thing about the bezel is its toothed edge. That looks exceptionally specialized, proficient and strong, in any case, infers that it ought to have the option to turn. Something which shouldn’t be the situation with a tachymeter size obviously. We need to concede that we didn’t attempt it, yet I’m sure the bezel is fixed and won’t rotate.


During the occasion, which was facilitated by Robert Doornbos and Dutch TV character Rob Kamphues, a refueling break challenge was orchestrated – a short challenge between Max Verstappen and world-acclaimed Australian vlogger Supercar Blondie (with right around 2 million and more than 300,000 supporters of her In this test, they needed to replace one tire on an Aston Martin Red Bull Formula One vehicle as fast as could really be expected. Super Car Blondie won the challenge, and afterward visitors got the opportunity to beat the time set. A driver’s seat was accessible also, where individuals could attempt to beat Max Verstappen on a virtual race track.
