Product Description

Philips HQ7390/17 Williams F1 Mains Rechargeable Shaver

Passion for perfection--Philips HQ7390/17 Williams F1 mains rechargeable shaver

"My life is a race every day, and I need the best support team I can find--my pit crew at work and my Philips shaver at home. It ensures I am in pole position every morning." Nico Rosberg, Formula One driver AT&T Williams

Combine Formula One, one of the most competitive sports in the world, with the best Philips technology in premium shavers, and the result is the new uniquely designed Philips Williams F1 rechargeable shaver. It is a must-have for anyone who appreciates premium performance, precision engineering and total control handling, developed by Philips Shavers, the world leader in shaving technology, and inspired by the Williams F1 Team’s hairline precision engineering. Philips designers looked to the best materials used in F1 that demonstrate durability and toughness and discovered that the carbon fibre used in the chassis of the car had the same characteristics needed in a male shaver: light weight, durable and able to handle knocks! Set to equip you for your best shaving performance ever, it offers ease of use with cutting-edge design, innovative technology and exclusive features.

Better surface contact means better results

When the William F1 car takes corners at up tp 275 km/h, it's important for the wheels to maintain contact with the tarmac while following the contours of the track. That's why Williams F1 developed advanced racing suspension systems. Similarly, Philips uses advanced technology to ensure their shavers follow the contours of your face so you never miss a single hair. Simplicity is always staying on track.

Reflex Action® system

The Reflex Action® system of the HQ7390 shaver adjusts to every curve of your face and neck. The Reflex Action system follows the curves and contours of the face, so there's optimal soothing and minimal friction. It adjusts to every curve of your face and neck for flexible, smoother shaving.

Individually floating heads

The individually floating heads of the HQ7390 shaver provide you perfection in your shave. Just align the razor-sharp blades closer to your skin for exceptional closeness.

Precision cutting system shaves even the shortest stubble

This new Philips electric shaver is equipped to conveniently deliver a superior shaving performance. Ultra-thin heads with slots shave long hairs and unique micro-holes are designed to catch the shortest stubble. You can also use a pre-shave lotion.

Super 'lift and cut'® technology

The Philips HQ7390 has a combination of two double-action cut systems which help you to achieve a close and perfect shave in a single stroke. Its dual blade system provides double action in one move. The first blade lifts the hair from the skin and the second blade cuts for a comfortable, close shave. This dual action minimises your effort and maximises the outcome.

Comfort shaving heads

The skin-friendly profile enables smooth skin contact for a comfortable shave.

Best shaving techniques

Move the shaving heads over the skin, making both straight and circular movements. Shaving on a dry face gives the best results. Your skin may need two to three weeks to become accustomed to this Philips system. To prevent damage, put the protection cap back on after shaving. Replace the shaving heads every two years to maintain optimal shaving performance.

Compatible shaving head

Only the Philips HQ8 shaving heads fit this shaver. The average lifetime of the shaving heads is about two years. We advise you to replace the shaving heads of your shaver every two years in order to guarantee optimal shaving results.

Pop-up trimmer

The full width, pop-up trimmer is perfect for grooming sideburns and moustache.

Washable shaver

The waterproof shaver can be easily rinsed under the tap. Regular cleaning guarantees better shaving results. The easiest and most hygienic way to clean the appliance is to rinse the shaving unit (with the shaving heads) and the hair chamber under a hot tap every time you have used the appliance.

Worldwide plug

The shaver comes with a standard worldwide shaving plug lead with two prongs, designed to be used in a bathroom shaving socket with two holes. The lead can also be plugged into a wall socket (with three holes) via a converter. Converter not included.

Ease of use
  • Charging time of one hour = shaving time of 30 minutes. When the battery is fully charged, the green light will start blinking. When the red light starts blinking, it means that your battery is empty and you should charge your shaver.
  • Display: Battery full indicator, battery low indicator, charge indicator.
  • Charging: Corded/cordles.
  • The Philips Williams F1 shaver is equipped with an automatic voltage selector, so it will automatically adjust to the local mains voltage.

    Philips HQ7390/17 Williams F1 Mains Rechargeable Shaver
    I'm the most sceptical person when it comes to electric shavers. I have resisted the girlfriend pushing me into buying one. Anyway, this one came down to a price (not on Amazon, sorry) and so I thought I would give it a try.

    It is excellent. I mean, really... It's very quiet, very low vibration (if that is something that people worry about, I don't know) and really does a very good job. I was really surprised...

    I like the fact that I can flip open the top and give it a good wash under a tap and there is no HUGE base station for cleaning. Seems low maintenance to me.

    Anyway, that it... In summary, very close shave, easy to look after and does the job really well. And I have to point out, I have very thick hair so it's a bit of job even with a wet razor!

    I was dubious about buying a rechargable shaver as it takes ages to shave with my mains powered Philips shaver, but, reading the review above i thought i would give it a go. This shaver is amazing, it feels as though i have used a wet razor, i have never used an electric shaver that shaves so well. I cannot use a wet razor as it cuts my face up every time but even if i did, it would not "do it" any better than this.
    11/10, thank you Philips.

    This is the first time I have tried using an electric shaver and I am hugely impressed. The build quality is excellent. The battery seems to be very good as I'm on my 8th or 9th shave since the first charge and it's still going strong. It's quiet and the shave itself is excellent.

    It says in the booklet that it can take 2-4 weeks for your skin to adapt to using an electric shaver and it's quite right. Each shave gets closer and I am completely free of even the tiniest patch of shaving rash for the first time in a decade!

    Also, a very nice design in conjunction with Williams. Maybe not as important a fact as the function and usability of the shaver but true nonetheless.

    I would happily recommend both this product and Amazon. I ordered on Saturday afternoon (free super saver) and it arrived on Wednesday - excellent.

    Philips HQ7390/17 Williams F1 Mains Rechargeable Shaver

    Just arrived - Just used it - awesome - it left 1 or 2 stands of hair which i had to go over couple of times - but i think once i understand how I need to use it on my face in particular - it will be perfect - the quality of the shave was like doing a wetshave followed by a second pass without scraping off all your skin. Well worth the buy.

    This razor was bought for my husband for Xmas and I was not sure if it was the right one. He is so pleased with it, he has a really close shave and it is so quick. The shaver itself is so quiet when he is using it. I really got him a lovely present.

    I HAVE HAD A FEW ELECTRIC SHAVERS IN MY TIME BUT NOTHING EVEN COMES CLOSE TO THE PHILIPS HQ7390/17, AND NOTHING EVER GOT SO CLOSE TO MY SKIN EITHER.
    NO MORE GOING OVER THE SAME AREA TIME AND TIME AGAIN TO GET A CLOSE SHAVE.
    I WAS SO PLEASED WITH THE SHAVER THAT I BOUGHT ONE FOR MY SON FOR CHRISTMAS, AND THAT'S THE TRUTH.

    Bought this shaver a month ago - it's actually no different functionality wise to the HQ7380 - which is £10 cheaper - all you are paying for really is the snazzy F1 paint job....

    Performance wise this is the best Philishave I've ever owned - the first one that can truly complete with wet shaving with a blade. It really is that good. The machine is also superbly quiet as well when running (although to be fair most of my older Philishaves have got progressively rougher and louder with age). As it has an electronic start/stop you won't be able to keep on shaving until the battery dies a slow death - it just suddenly cuts out on you seconds after the low battery light comes on....aargh! Charging time is very short - thanks to a Lithium Ion cell.

    The fact that you have can't use a standard mains cord will be a pain to some - that's the price you pay for the shaver being waterproof, as the mains transformer is built into the cord instead of in the shaver itself (remember you might need a slightly bigger toilet bag for when you travel with it!).

    Personally I don't rinse it under a tap, although you are able to - I clean it the old fashioned way. Overall very happy and would reccommend it!

    Reviews gave interesting and useful reading. Good competitive price.
    After 40 years of Philips shavers, and such a wide range of choice,
    I finally decided on the HQ7390. I have not been let down by the
    closeness of the shave required,or the quality of the product (so far!).
    Tracking of order, and delivery excellent
    Would be 5 star but for lack of travelling case.
