Luxury watches, Swiss watches
Men’s watches and women’s watches by TAG Heuer: where timekeeping becomes an art.

Renowned for their quality and precision, Swiss watches and luxury watches are one in the same. And within the world of Swiss watches, TAG Heuer timepieces are in a class apart. Boasting avant-garde design and advanced technology, they are more than just luxury timepieces or mere sports watches – they are in a category all their own.

TAG Heuer combines manual craftsmanship with the best and latest technology, for ladies’ and men’s watches that bear witness to heritage while inspiring innovation and excellence. Resolutely modern yet enduringly sophisticated, a TAG Heuer watch goes beyond sublime aesthetics: its automatic watches boast high frequencies ranging from 21,600 vibrations per hour to up to 360,000 (as in the case of the Calibre 360), ensuring excellent mechanical precision. For this reason, a number of its automatic watch movements have been awarded the prestigious Official Swiss Chronometer Control (C.O.S.C.) certificate.

It comes as no surprise, then, that TAG Heuer chronograph watches are celebrated as the pinnacle of Swiss watch precision timekeeping. These luxury sport watches are the official timekeepers of one of the world’s most prestigious racing events, the Monaco Grand Prix. In addition, TAG Heuer is the official partner of both America’s-Cup-winner Oracle Team USA and esteemed Formula 1 automotive manufacture McLaren – for a perfect marriage of speed and timekeeping accuracy.

Aesthetically, TAG Heuer timepieces are equally as impressive. Crafted by experts in their field, these luxury Swiss watches combine the finest materials in flawless harmony. Whether blending the best in traditional materials – such as soft calfskin, fine alligator leather, precious solid gold or robust stainless steel – or accenting them with newer, more contemporary materials – including high-tech rubber and modern fabric – TAG Heuer blurs the lines between the preconceived notions of sports watches and luxury watches. Its quality finishes, including fine brushing, black PVD finish and ruthenium treatment, are both refined yet innovative, visually appealing yet always practical.

Meanwhile, its watches for women are the height of understated elegance. Its diamond watches, in particular, add a touch of feminine sparkle to the iconic men’s watch models that have made the TAG Heuer name: the TAG Heuer Carrera, the Monaco, the Link, the Aquaracer and the TAG Heuer Formula 1. With luxury materials and scaled back lines, these stylish ladies’ timepieces carry on the tradition of fine craftsmanship and impeccable precision that has been part of the brand’s DNA for over a century.

All this to say that TAG Heuer timepieces are about more than just luxury or precision: they are the bearer of the finest in Swiss craftsmanship pushed boldly into the future. Aesthetically sublime yet decidedly reliable, finely crafted yet resolutely high-tech, contemporary yet refined, TAG Heuer gives new meaning to luxury watches for men and women.


Mikrogirder 5/10000th microblade regulator

The statistics are nothing short of astounding: 1,000 Hz = 1/2000th = 5/10,000th of a second = 7,200,000 beats per hour. In comparison, a regular watch functions at 4hz, or only 28,800 beats per hour. The MIKROGIRDER is 250 times faster!

 

The MIKROGIRDER’s dual frequency system ensures precision and chronometry through 2 independent chains. As there is no possibility of interference between “normal speed” and “high speed”, there is better precision and accuracy. The power reserve is improved, too, and wear and tear dramatically reduced, as “high speed” is “on demand” instead of being always engaged. Finally, the dual frequency system offers the ultimate in readability. Finally, for ultimate readability, the smallest fractions of time — 1/1,000th and 5/10,000 of a second — are displayed on a central hand that completes a full revolution around the dial a mind-boggling 20 times per second. And like the Mikrotimer Flying 1000, a special counter at 3 o’clock and a 5/10,000-of-a-second scale on the dial’s edge let you read this incredible measurement quickly and effortlessly.
