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.

18 Mar. Jenson Button Guest of Honour at TAG Heuer's Grand Prix Event in Melbourne

Last night TAG Heuer hosted its highly anticipated Grand Prix Event at the Melbourne Flagship boutique with a special guest appearance by TAG Heuer Ambassador and Formula 1 champion, Jenson Button.

A stellar line up of Australian identities and VIPs attended the high profile cocktail event, including Brian McFadden and fiancé Vogue Williams, Miss Universe winner and TV personality Rachael Finch, model and personality Erika Heynatz, actor Jai Courtney, and ambassador of the 2012 Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix Kate Peck. High profile sporting identities included Olympic gold medallists Lydia Lassila and Malcolm Paige, AFL footballers Scott Pendlebury (and partner Alix Davis), Sharrod Wellingham and Chris Dawes, and Rugby Union players Nick Phipps and Hugh Pyle.

Button arrived in true Formula 1 glamour with TAG Heuer Gird girls presenting a guard of honour to welcome the champion driver. In his role as MC, network Seven’s Mark Beretta officially welcomed a relaxed and charming Button to the TAG Heuer Flagship boutique before inviting him to unveil the latest timepiece from the leading Swiss watch brand, the new TAG Heuer Formula 1 chronograph.

Much to his delight Jenson was treated to true Melbourne flavour as Collingwood superstar & vice captain, Scott Pendlebury presented him with a signed AFL football. Ever the English gentleman Button reciprocated with a TAG Heuer cap signed.

TAG Heuer’s General Manager, Philip Richards, hosted the event. “The evening was a great success” said Richards. "TAG Heuer has a longstanding relationship with Formula 1 & McLaren and having a champion driver & TAG Heuer Ambassador appear at our Flagship boutique allows us to celebrate our motor-racing DNA in true Formula 1 style.”

Button’s association with TAG Heuer was announced in 2009 adding to TAG Heuer and McLaren’s ledger of the best F1 drivers and world champions.

TAG Heuer has recently marked its 25th year of partnership with McLaren. It is one of the most successful collaborations in sports, during which the team has achieved six FIA World Constructors’ Championship titles and nine FIA World Drivers’ Championship titles.
