Best watches for men and for women
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 and 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 Caliber 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 the best watches for men and for women.

Calibre 360 Chronograph watch

Calibre 360 Chronograph

The world’s only 1/100th of a second mechanical chronograph

Evolving out of the unique heritage of TAG Heuer chronographs and the links between Tag Heuer Carrera collections and automobile racing - the Calibre 360 Chronograph. A 1/100th of a second mechanical chronograph which is 10 times faster than any other mechanical watch movement.

GENESIS

In 1916, TAG Heuer invented the world's first mechanical stopwatch accurate to 1/100th of a second – the Mikrograph.

In the 1960s, as a tribute to the Tag Heuer Carrera Pan-American Rally, Jack Heuer designs the Tag Heuer Carrera wrist chronograph. Its minimalistic, functional design and high-level precision make it an instant classic.

In 2005, the Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 360 concept watch arrives at Baselworld. It is the direct result of 150 years of  TAG Heuer mechanical chronograph expertise. 

The Calibre 360 beats with two hearts: 2 series of escapement mechanisms. These allow the timepiece impressive accuracy because the chronograph is not simply a section added to the main watch. It is an entirely separate movement with a high frequency balance wheel operating at 360,000 beats per hour. This is 10 times faster than any other mechanical watch movement.

Such precision requires 230 separate pieces, and a super lightweight and miniaturized escapement mechanism and spiral (the diameter of which is less than 26 % of a regular balance wheel). The Calibre 360 has no less than 3 international patents:

  • the 1/100th of a second mechanical chronograph
  • a bidirectional crown
  • a complex date transmission system

Functions & features

The Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 360 Concept Watch pays homage to the Tag Heuer Carrera collection and the TAG Heuer's unrivalled heritage in the world of chronographs.

Ten times faster than any other mechanical movement for watches

The Calibre 360 beats with two hearts: 2 series of escapement mechanisms. These allow the timepiece to maintain a regular beat of 28,800 beats/hour, and to attain 360,000 beats per hour in chronograph mode. This is 10 times faster than any other mechanical watch movement.

No less than 3 international patents

The Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 360 has 3 international patents:

  • the 1/100th of a second counter on a mechanical chronograph
  • a bidirectional system for resetting and for the crown: a single crown controls the automatic watch and the mechanical chronograph as well as the time and date functions
  • a complex date transmission system
Heritage styling meets leading edge technology

Inspired by the TAG Heuer chronographs of yesteryear, the Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 360 has a streamlined design which is simple to use and easy to read. It has a large stopwatch/ winding button, a 100 minute power reserve counter at 12 o'clock, and an oversized 1/100th of a second counter at 6 o'clock.
