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.

01 Jul. FIA Formula-E DEMONSTRATION WESTMINSTER BRIDGE in London

THE FUTURE IS ELECTRIC

On 29 June 2014, TAG Heuer was a proud participant in the first-ever European demonstration of the FIA Formula E Championship, the world’s first fully electric motor-racing series. The special event took place on Westminster Bridge in London and marked the official launch of the inaugural Formula E season, which will be contested by 10 teams over 10 rounds beginning on 13 September, 2014 in Beijing and finishing in 27 June, 2015 in London. In all, 10 cities will play host to the pioneering series, including Putrajaya, Malaysia, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Punta del Este, Uruguay and Miami and Long Beach in the United States.

The 29 June event in London involved the entire fleet of 20 Formula E Spark-Renault SRT-01E single-seaters, which are made with groundbreaking zero-emission components by the world’s top car manufacturers and constructors. The cars reach maximum speeds of 225 km/h and accelerate from zero to 100 in 3 seconds. Driven by the best drivers in Formula One, Champ Car and IndyCar, their engines emit crowd-pleasing roars of 80 decibels, but no pollution.

A video of the event was released on June 30th at the Global Launch of the Formula E season, Many government officials and dignitaries were in attendance—Westminster Bridge leads to the British House of Commons and the iconic landmark of Big Ben—as were many luminaries from the racing world, including Damon Hill, Christian Fittipaldi and Frank Williams.

TAG Heuer is a proud founding partner of the groundbreaking series. A passion for automobiles has fueled the Swiss watchmaker since its very beginnings. Teaming up with Formula E is the logical next step, as it draws on the brand’s racing heritage and commitment to sustainability. Solar roofs provide electricity in the watchmaker’s Swiss facilities. In 2010, it organised with Tesla the first world tour in a 100% electric GT. Now it is proud to be part of the world’s newest and most innovative open championship—a path-breaking initiative that, like TAG Heuer, is a fusion of engineering, technology, sport, science, and design — all combining to drive the change towards a better tomorrow.
