Watches for men and watches for women by TAG Heuer: the fine art of keeping time.

Quality and accuracy are the bywords when it comes to Swiss watches and luxury watches. And within this elite universe, TAG Heuer timepieces are in a league all their own. With both innovative design and advanced technology, they go far beyond luxury timepieces or sports watches – they are a class unto themselves.

By combining manual craftsmanship with the best, most advanced technology, TAG Heuer ladies’ and men’s watches perpetuate a remarkable legacy while encouraging quality and innovation. Entirely modern and eternally refined, a TAG Heuer watch is more than mere aesthetics. Its automatic watches possess high frequencies ranging from 21,600 vibrations per hour to up to 360,000 (as with the Calibre 360) – a guarantee of outstanding mechanical precision. A number of its automatic watch movements thus bear the prestigious Official Swiss Chronometer Control (C.O.S.C.) certificate.

Unsurprisingly, TAG Heuer chronograph watches are recognised as the height of Swiss watch precision. The official timekeeper of one of the world’s most celebrated races, the Monaco Grand Prix, TAG Heuer is also the partner of both Oracle Team USA – winner of the prestigious America’s Cup – and Formula 1 automotive manufacture McLaren, in the ultimate pact of speed and timekeeping precision.

TAG Heuer timepieces likewise astound aesthetically: created by expert specialists, these luxury Swiss watches harmoniously combine the best noble materials, such as sinuous calfskin or refined alligator leather, exquisite solid gold or strong stainless steel, at times accenting them with more modern, innovative materials, like high-tech rubber or contemporary fabric. In doing so, TAG Heuer turns preconceived notions of sports watches and luxury watches on their head. Its quality finishes, including fine brushing, black PVD finish and ruthenium treatment, are at once classic yet avant-garde attractive yet practical.

Not to be outdone, its watches for women are the pinnacle of restrained elegance. Most notably, its diamond watches add a trace of womanly sparkle to the famed men’s watch models for which TAG Heuer is known: the TAG Heuer Carrera, the Monaco, the Link, the Aquaracer and the TAG Heuer Formula 1. Featuring luxury materials and uncluttered lines, these sophisticated ladies’ timepieces perfectly uphold the band’s heritage of fine workmanship and impeccable precision that have been its hallmark for more than a century.

Indeed, TAG Heuer timepieces represent more than simple luxury or precision. They symbolise the finest Swiss craftsmanship thrust brazenly into the future. Where dependability meets aesthetics, artistry meets technology, elegance meets the avant-garde: TAG Heuer gives new meaning to luxury watches for men and women.

Fangio EL MAESTRO

A UNIQUE ROAD TO SUCCESS

"You should always strive to be the best, but you should never think that you already are."

Before Juan-Manuel Fangio, Formula 1 drivers in their mid-30s were considered too old to win a single race, let alone a World Championship.

Fangio didn’t get his first F1 start until he was 37. He went on to win five World Championships, proving once and for all that age doesn’t matter, only grit and talent, a desire to be the best, and an ability to never crack under pressure.

...LIKE TAG HEUER’S

Fangio became a legend by winning the World Championship of Drivers five times. A superlative track record achieved by the greatest displays of skill and daring ever seen; the greatest driver of all time.
Like TAG Heuer, he redefined the limits of his field and never cracked under pressure. His first race, at 18, in 1929, was on a dirt road in his native Argentina, behind the wheel of a Ford taxi. Soon he was winning the most dangerous endurance circuits ever raced, 10,000 kilometres on snaking roads with no pit stops or mechanics across the spine of the Andes, from Buenos Aires to Lima, Peru, and back again...

The glamour of Grand Prix lured him to Europe, thus beginning the most impressive career in motorsports: 24 World Championship Grands Prix from 52 entries, 29 pole starts, 48 front row starts—all three stats unequaled to this day. He also racked up the most World Championships with the most teams—Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Mercedes and Maserati. It was in a Maserati that he suffered his worst moment, a somersaulting spinout into a dirt bank at Monza in 1952 that snapped his neck. The crash was caused by fatigue, not because of age, but because he had driven non-stop from Paris the night before, having missed connections following a race in Belfast. Near death, he held on and clawed back, returning to the Grand Prix the following season and finishing second overall. Four more World Championships followed, capped by his last in 1957, at the age of 46. He was still driving into his 80s: when his driver’s license was revoked because of age, he challenged the licensing department to a 400km race between Buenos Aires and Mar del Plata. Guess who won. El Maestro, the path-breaker, a man driven, like TAG Heuer, to pursue greatness, to refuse limits, and never crack under pressure.
