As the year hurtles toward its grand finale, consider gifting your loved ones (or treating yourself) the epitome of precision and style — a Formula 1-inspired luxury watch. Just as the world’s fastest racing cars push the boundaries of speed, these timepieces mirror the essence of high-performance engineering and cutting-edge design. From the wrists of F1 drivers to collaborations with iconic racing sponsors, we’ve curated a selection of timekeeping marvels that seamlessly blend the worlds of motorsport and horology (that’s the art of watchmaking, my friends).

The sponsors

Watch sponsorships for Formula 1 teams isn’t a new thing; Jack Heuer developed sponsorships going back into the 1960s. Today, nearly every team has a timepiece sponsorship:

  • Red Bull Racing – Tag Heuer
  • Mercedes – IWC
  • Ferrari – Richard Mille
  • McLaren – Richard Mille
  • Aston Martin – Girard-Perregaux
  • Alpine – Bell & Ross
  • Williams – Bremont
  • AlphaTauri – Previously Casio Edifice
  • Alfa Romeo – Rebellion
  • Haas – Previously Cyrus Geneve

Rolex is also a sponsor of F1, though of the organization in general, not of any particular team.

The Tag Heuer Formula 1 X Red Bull Racing Special Edition Chronograph boasts a vibrant blue dial and a dynamic Red Bull Racing theme. This quartz watch combines precision timekeeping with a sporty design.
