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.

14 Aug. The Odyssey of Pioneers on Malibu Beach

TAG HEUER AND NOTABLE CELEBRITIES KICK OFF AMERICAN LEG OF GLOBAL "ODYSSEY OF PIONEERS" IN MALIBU.

The entertainment, fashion and media elite came out to celebrate TAG Heuer’s “The Odyssey of Pioneers” last night at an exclusive cocktail party hosted in a private Malibu estate. The invitation-only event drew several celebrities including Twilight star Kellan Lutz, Joe Manganiello from True Blood, Johny Galecki from Big Band Theory, and Tim Daly, star of Private Practice. Renaud Dutreil, Chairman of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton Inc., also made an appearance.

TAG Heuer CEO and President Ulrich Wohn welcomed guests, especially, Elon Musk, Chairman and CEO of Tesla Motors Inc.

During the event, guests enjoyed cocktails, including Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin, and previewed our exhibition of key historical and current TAG Heuer products that underscores the brand’s passion for revolutionizing timekeeping. The TAG Heuer Tesla roadster was also exhibited.

The Malibu-based event marked the 11th major stop the TAG Heuer Tesla Roadster has made worldwide. In March 2010, TAG Heuer brand ambassador and Academy Award-nominated actor Leonardo DiCaprio kicked off the car’s round-the-world, six-month “Odyssey” in Basel, Switzerland. Since then, the TAG Heuer Tesla Roadster has visited Monaco, the Great Wall of China and India, where Prince Albert, actor Chen Dao Ming and the Maharaja of India, respectively, drove it.

Brand ambassador and tennis champion Maria Sharapova welcomed the TAG Heuer Tesla Roadster when it arrived in the U.S. earlier this month, and drove it along the streets of Manhattan Beach, Calif. Throughout the summer, the car will be driven cross-country and stop in cities nationwide, including Las Vegas, Miami, N.Y., where TAG Heuer will host exclusive cocktail receptions on August 19 and Sept. 2.

The TAG Heuer Tesla Roadster will travel to London and then Paris for the final leg of its global journey. At the Odyssey’s completion, the car will have traveled more than 25,000 miles over three continents.
