Let’s go to another Pitch Watch
Sometimes less is more and that’s exactly what TAG Heuer has just done by introducing thirteen new models whose main feature is to provide real-time simply and without major complications. These new models are all offered in a stainless steel case and bracelet (except one model) and in three different sizes, in 41, 39, and 29mm.
Regardless of size, all models feature identical external features, stainless steel case with a polished finish and now also brushed on the sides, smooth bezel, angled lugs, domed sapphire crystal, open-through case back, and 100 meters of water resistance. On the dial, applied rhodium-plated or rose gold-plated indexes and hands filled with lume, and with the particularity of the larger 39 and 41mm variants feature hour and minute hands with a black center. Also, the stainless steel bracelet presents some improvements, namely in the central links that now have less pronounced angles and better-angled end-links.
