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.

Tag Heuer Carrera 1887

Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix

TAG Heuer’s in-house manufactured chronograph wins the “La Petite Aiguille” Best Watch of the Year Award at the 2010 Grand Prix de l'Horlogerie de Genève.

The Grand Prix de l'Horlogerie de Genève is the Swiss watch industry’s most prestigious award competition. The prize of “La Petite Aiguille” rewards the best watch of the year whose price is under 5,000 Swiss francs ($5,166USD). The victory marks the sixth time in 10 years that TAG Heuer has been singled out for its engineering and design prowess.

 

"This is great victory for TAG Heuer, and for our Honorary Chairman Jack Heuer," said Jean-Christophe Babin, TAG Heuer President and CEO. "Jack is the creative genius behind so many of our icons, among them the Monaco, the Silverstone and, of course the Tag Heuer Carrera. He designed the first Tag Heuer Carrera in 1964 and has overseen every new generation since. This new version celebrates that legacy. It’s a "Grand Classique" re-invented for TAG Heuer’s 150th Anniversary, faithful to the original in design and spirit, but with a radical new "engine" — the Calibre 1887 — which turns it into a 3rd Millennium chronograph in terms of size, quality, performance and accuracy."

 

The TAG Heuer Carrera 1887 chronograph was developed, and is currently produced and assembled in TAG Heuer’s state-of-the-art facility in Switzerland.

 

Its star component is the Calibre 1887. A new contemporary mechanical chronograph movement, by TAG Heuer. Not different but more efficient. A new classic in the Tag Heuer Carrera tradition.

 

"The TAG Heuer Carrera 1887 Chronograph epitomizes TAG Heuer’s pre-eminence in mechanical movement and case manufacturing," said Jack Heuer. "We spent 3 years engineering and developing the movement in a "all-under-one-roof" workshop equipped with avant-garde Swiss machines and robots capable of stamping, milling and finishing with to-the-micron precision. This state-of-the-art engineering allows for the production of a true "Manufacture" movement at a very competitive cost — a perfect embodiment of TAG Heuer’s famous "fair cost/fair price" philosophy."
