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.

MCLAREN THE MASTERS OF SPEED

A UNIQUE ROAD TO SUCCESS

“Life is measured in achievement, not in years alone.” Bruce McLaren

Before McLaren, F1 teams focused their resources on a single objective: winning the Formula One World Constructors' Championship.

Since McLaren, the only team to have turned itself into a road car manufacturer, won Indianapolis 500, Can Am, 24 Hours of Le Mans, and four consecutive drivers and constructors championships in Formula One, teams have had to pick up their game, and broaden their ambitions.

...LIKE TAG HEUER’S


In 1963, a 26-year-old named Bruce McLaren began building race cars in a cramped workshop in Surrey, England...

He had already made a name for himself as a driver in his native New Zealand and in the States, and the year before he won the Monaco Grand Prix. Three years later, driving a Formula One car built with his own hands and bearing his name, he won it again. Four years later, he was dead, killed in a fiery crash while testing his newest design. “Life is measured in achievement, not in years alone,” he once wrote of a fallen colleague. It is his own perfect epitaph. The legacy of his achievements is without equal in motorsports. His McLaren Technology Centre employs more than 2000 people and, along with F1 cars, manufactures the world’s most coveted supercars, and his team has more victories than any other team in Formula 1—182, including an unmatched 15 at Monaco. McLaren is even the most successful team in F1 since they started competing in F1 in 1966. It dominated the North American CanAm sports car series, with 43 wins between 1967 and 1972, won the Indy 500 three times between ’72 and ’76, and took the Le Mans 24 Hours on its first attempt, in 1995. The team’s drivers — Emerson Fittipaldi, James Hunt, Niki Lauda, Mika Hakkinen, Kimi Räikkönen, Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso, Jenson Button — are household names and legends of motorsport. Two of them, Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna, form the greatest rivalry in the history of motor sports. And they, like the team they fought for, and like TAG heuer, are representatives of all that is fine in the race: courage, ambition, vision, an ability to push harder than the rest, and to never, no matter the circumstances, crack under pressure.
