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.

The Spirit

If you are boldly going anywhere you boldly go with a TAG Heuer.  Timepieces which have played a vital role in the exploits of the most dashing and daring champions and adventurers of the past 150 years.

 

A passion born young. Still in his twenties founder Edouard Heuer decided keys were a windup and consigned them to history with his groundbreaking crown-operated winding system. Being in the forefront was the most stylish position, a position TAG Heuer assumed and has retained.

 

Over three centuries at the cutting edge of timekeeping on land, sea and air.


TAG Heuer clocks winners on the waves, on the track, in lawn tennis and on Formula 1 circuits. And for more unusual exploits. A Time on Trip device was aboard the Graf Zeppelin’s first transatlantic flight. The intrepid Hugo Eckener also installed it on his Zeppelin a round the world trip in 1929.
Modern day Olympic recordbreakers in Antwerp in 1920, Paris 1924 and Amsterdam in 1928 raced against stopwatches including the Heuer Mikographs and Micrcosplits. Wordbeaters take their prized winning times from TAG Heuer. 

 

The gold standard of time, on occasion, literally. A gold TAG Heuer was presented to Prof Auguste Picard who headed sky high in a ballon to a record height of 15,781m. Aside from airships and ballons by the Thirties TAG Heuer timepieces had become key and trusted fixtures in cars and planes worldwide.

 

As the jet set took flight TAG Heuer is master of the time zones

For a newly globalised post World War 2 world TAG Heuer introduced the Twin Time in 1955 which displayed two time zones simultaneously. And then went beyond. A TAG Heuer stopwatch shot into space on the first manned flight aboard Mercury–Atlas 6 in the hands of astronaut John Glenn. 

 

In 1971 TAG Heuer joined forces with Enzo Ferrari  and became the Official Timekeeper for the roaring red Formula 1 stable from 1971 until 1979. In the midst of this association the Chronosplit was launched – a double digital display quartz marvel precise to 1/100th of a second. Senior Ferrari ordered 15.
