Swiss Luxury Watches For Men and For Women

Men’s watches and women watches made by TAG Heuer

Each watch a paragon of precision engineering, quality, and sporting heritage. This is the TAG Heuer DNA. This is what ensures TAG Heuer position as a world leader of luxury sports watches and chronographs.

Swiss watches are renowned for their quality and precision. And within the world of Swiss watches, TAG Heuer watches are known not just for quality and precision, but for avant-garde design and advanced technology too. For a sports heritage that inspires excellence. And for quality materials that create luxury watches for men and women.

Since 1860, when Edouard Heuer opened his first workshop in the Swiss mountains, TAG Heuer has been consistently first to master chronograph precision in its smallest increments. Stunning consumers and the watchmaking industry with the likes of the 1916 Mikrograph - the world’s first sports stopwatch with 1/100th of a second precision. Or more recently with the Mikrotimer Flying 1000, the only mechanical chronograph to measure and display 1/1,000th of a second. And in 2012, it’s the turn of the Mikrogirder Concept Watch to dazzle with its unprecedented precision – 5/10,000th of a second accuracy. Today, TAG Heuer is the only Swiss watch brand producing mechanical and automatic chronographs with this phenomenal fractional second accuracy.

Throughout its history, TAG Heuer has been at the cutting edge of time on sea, land and in the air. From date displays to fly-back hands – TAG Heuer innovations have been adopted by leading makers of luxury sports watches worldwide. It was Edouard Heuer who invented the oscillating pinion for the Microtimer in 1886 – now central to almost every contemporary mechanical chronograph. In 2004 the Monaco V4 concept watch reinvented time with drive-belts and ball-bearings – and received a rapturous welcome in Geneva.

This tradition of award-winning innovation continues with the 2010 TAG Heuer Pendulum. A concept so revolutionary it overturned a 300 year-old fundamental of watch making – the balance wheel and hairspring mechanism. For the first time in watchmaking history, the oscillations of the balance wheel are driven not by the hairspring, but by magnetic field. An incredible achievement. Where does the inspiration come from?

A rich heritage and active engagement in the sporting arena. TAG Heuer’s long relationship with motorsports is legendary. Team Ferrari in the 1970s. The last 25 glorious years with McLaren F1. Emerging from this love of speed and performance, the impeccable performance of the TAG Heuer Formula 1, Monaco, Carrera and Grand Carrera Chronograph. Each watch a masterpiece of design and manufacturing, performance and precision.

And from the aquatic world – yachting, ocean-racing and scuba diving – comes Aquaracer, the indispensable sports watch. Aquaracer is proudly worn by the ORACLE Racing team in their aim to capture the America’s Cup. Their values - high performance and split-second precision - find support in their partnership with TAG Heuer.

This passion for professional sports also led to the development of the ultra-light Professional Sports Watch and the iconic LINK series. And TAG Heuer, in a constant quest for innovation, performance and prestige, continues to aim ever higher. A drive for excellence reflected in its partnerships with sporting champions, powerful ambassadors like tennis player Maria Sharapova, and F1 winner Jenson Button. Glamorous Cameron Diaz, Leondardo DiCaprio, iconic Steve McQueen, China’s Chen Dao Ming and India’s Shah Rukh Khan are charismatic TAG Heuer ambassadors too – each of them sharing TAG Heuer’s integrity, passion and excellence.

TAG Heuer watches for men are innovative timepieces that combine TAG Heuer’s mastery of precision with its racing heritage and prestige materials. Women too appreciate the TAG Heuer values of performance and reliability: TAG Heuer has designed watches for women since its earliest days. In luxury materials like diamonds, ceramic and mother-of-pearl, TAG Heuer watches for women speak to her femininity with ultra glamorous, elegant designs.

A DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION: THE CALIBRE S

The Calibre S proposes a new method of measuring and reading time by means of bidirectional systems that are mechanically independentbut synchronized, offering accuracy, practicality and elegance. It combines the precision of quartz technology with the sophistication and complexity of mechanical watchmaking. The Calibre S is the first new generation of analog timepieces to be developed for several centuries and, with some 250 components, it is in the pure avant-garde tradition of TAG Heuer.

DISPLAY

This disruptive technology has been strongly inspired by sports car instruments. It uses similar bidirectional micro-motors and 160° dials. Placed at 4.30 and 7.30, they display information ranging from a perpetual calendar to 1/100th of a second.

RELIABILITY OF THE CALIBRE S

This breakthrough by TAG Heuer required a special effort to minimize the weight of parts and materials in order to maximize precision and guarantee perfect inertia. The Calibre S underwent 12.000 hours of testing including simulated acceleration, shocks, and exposure to extreme temperatures. Despite the great difficulties involved,TAG Heuer made no concessions in the quality and performance of the Calibre S which is fitted in the Aquaracer and Link series.
– The central hands display the elapsed time measured by the chronograph (hours, minutes and seconds).
– The two counters display the date in Time mode, and 1/00th sec. in Chrono mode.
