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.

30 Jan. A Swiss Catamaran will sail in San Francisco

Swiss watchmaking legend TAG Heuer, the Official Partner of ORACLE TEAM USA, the 34th America’s Cup defender at this year’s 34th America’s Cup, will join the young Swiss sailors of TEAM TILT in their bid to win the newest addition to the world’s most prestigious sailing season: the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup.

The Red Bull Youth America’s Cup is scheduled for August/September 2013, in San Francisco, during the peak moment of the America’s Cup racing season. The final will be held a week before the Cup itself. Ten national teams of six sailors, aged 19 to 24, will participate in the race, on the same platform of wing-sailed AC45 catamarans used throughout 2011 and 2012 in the America’s Cup World Series events.

“It’s the perfect match–a Swiss brand and a Swiss team, working side by side at the highest level of competitive sailing,” said TAG Heuer President and CEO Jean-Christophe Babin. “We are very proud and excited to be partnered with this next generation of racing talent. TAG Heuer and Team Tilt are driven by the same values: high-tech, precision, tradition and 100% passion for competition. We hope that this exciting experience will stimulate future Swiss projects. We would be very proud, for example, to be associated with a Swiss bid for the 35th America’s Cup.”
