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.

01 Jul. FIA Formula-E DEMONSTRATION WESTMINSTER BRIDGE in London

THE FUTURE IS ELECTRIC

On 29 June 2014, TAG Heuer was a proud participant in the first-ever European demonstration of the FIA Formula E Championship, the world’s first fully electric motor-racing series. The special event took place on Westminster Bridge in London and marked the official launch of the inaugural Formula E season, which will be contested by 10 teams over 10 rounds beginning on 13 September, 2014 in Beijing and finishing in 27 June, 2015 in London. In all, 10 cities will play host to the pioneering series, including Putrajaya, Malaysia, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Punta del Este, Uruguay and Miami and Long Beach in the United States.

The 29 June event in London involved the entire fleet of 20 Formula E Spark-Renault SRT-01E single-seaters, which are made with groundbreaking zero-emission components by the world’s top car manufacturers and constructors. The cars reach maximum speeds of 225 km/h and accelerate from zero to 100 in 3 seconds. Driven by the best drivers in Formula One, Champ Car and IndyCar, their engines emit crowd-pleasing roars of 80 decibels, but no pollution.

A video of the event was released on June 30th at the Global Launch of the Formula E season, Many government officials and dignitaries were in attendance—Westminster Bridge leads to the British House of Commons and the iconic landmark of Big Ben—as were many luminaries from the racing world, including Damon Hill, Christian Fittipaldi and Frank Williams.

TAG Heuer is a proud founding partner of the groundbreaking series. A passion for automobiles has fueled the Swiss watchmaker since its very beginnings. Teaming up with Formula E is the logical next step, as it draws on the brand’s racing heritage and commitment to sustainability. Solar roofs provide electricity in the watchmaker’s Swiss facilities. In 2010, it organised with Tesla the first world tour in a 100% electric GT. Now it is proud to be part of the world’s newest and most innovative open championship—a path-breaking initiative that, like TAG Heuer, is a fusion of engineering, technology, sport, science, and design — all combining to drive the change towards a better tomorrow.
