Every watch collection begins with a single watch—a timepiece so distinct, so covetable that it turns an ordinary man into watch collector. For Ronnie Fieg, founder of Kith, it was the original 1986 TAG Heuer Formula 1, in red and black to be exact.

Fast forward four decades later, the brand he founded is teaming up with TAG Heuer, the maker of the watch that kickstarted his collection, to recreate the archival piece. This collaboration revives the original Formula 1 Series 1 designed by Eddy Burgener, with a few contemporary twists. For instance, better quality materials and bolder colour ways. The original series' bracelets that came in stainless steel or fiberglass variants are now refined in robust 35mm black PVD steel, and secured by fine brushed steel folding clasps or arnite pin buckles respectively.

This collection introduces 10 new pieces, including stainless steel and rubber bracelet editions—seven of which are exclusive to Kith. Elsewhere, vibrant colour ways like Sport Car Red, Black and Yellow, Green, Yellow, and Red pay tribute to the 1980's version in partnership with Japanese F1 driver, Ukyo Katayama. With more colour options than ever, we thought it might be a good idea to put together a list of ways to wear pieces from this collection to up the style ante.

1. TAG Heuer Formula 1 | Kith

Lightweight Padded Skater Jacket, $399, Calvin Klein

A highlight of the collection is the shared model between TAG Heuer and Kith. Limited to 1,350 pieces worldwide, the classic black-bezel watch with red accents is a classically style model. It features a steel bracelet with an eggshell dial reminiscent of the patinated version from 1986.

This model is an exquisite mix of modern and vintage, best paired with a classy but casual piece like the Lightweight Padded Skater Jacket by Calvin Klein. The crinkle nylon in Warm Sand will undeniably bring out the subtle eggshell detail of your timepiece to emulate effortless sophistication.

2. TAG Heuer Exclusives

The two TAG Heuer exclusive pieces in this collection are none other than the Blue and Green models. Limited to 825 pieces globally, this model features a black case and dial, and an unapologetic burst of colour everywhere else—from bezel to strap. The rubber bracelet gives it a sporty edge, which lends itself perfectly to sport-chic outfits like the one above.

3. TAG Heuer Formula 1 | Kith New York

There’s nothing that screams "classic" more than an all-black ensemble, and the sleek look of the TAG Heuer Formula 1 | Kith New York encapsulates top-notch elegance. The timepiece itself is of unrivalled sophistication, so be sure to style it minimally with light or off-white staples.

Ralph Lauren's Performance Polo Sweater is our top choice—with its spread collar, rib-knit cuffs, and signature embroidered pony giving off a minimal yet elegant look. Pair this with any black bottoms of your choice.
