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.

22 Sep. TAG Heuer presents Vodafone McLaren Mercedes pitcrew

  • Button and Jean Christophe Babin

A sub-2.500-second Formula pitstop is completed in less time than it takes to finish reading this sentence. But celebrating that moment? That’s timeless. And that’s why, at this weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix, TAG Heuer, official timekeeper & official watch of Vodafone McLaren Mercedes, chose to present the 25 crew members responsible for the world’s first sub-2.500-second pitstop with a precious reminder of the value of time.

As a personal thank-you gift from TAG Heuer, each pit-crew member will receive a TAG Heuer Carrera Day-Date watch as a unique reminder of Formula 1’s fastest-ever pitstop (achieved at the Santander German Grand Prix on Jenson Button’s car). The back of each timepiece will be engraved with a message reading ‘world record pitstop – first sub 2.500-seconds’.
Jean-Christophe Babin, President & CEO of TAG Heuer said: “This record is incredible, not only the performance itself but also because it shows how Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team is looking for mastering time & precision so does TAG Heuer! As a partner for more than 25 years, we are really proud of Vodafone McLaren Mercedes performance.”
Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team principal Martin Whitmarsh said: “Every element of a grand prix team works with the complex perfection of a Swiss watch mechanism – and a successful pitstop is no exception. Although it may look straightforward, the successful execution of a stop is the result of hundreds of hours of intense analysis and preparation. “Nowadays, the closeness of the field means a successful stop can even make the difference between winning or losing a grand prix. “This unique gift from TAG Heuer is a timely reward for the entire crew’s efforts, but, rest assured, there will be no let-up in focus or determination from Vodafone McLaren Mercedes for the remainder of the season.”
Jenson Button said: “A Formula 1 pitstop is the perfect representation of seamless teamwork. Every movement needs to work in perfect sync for a stop to be a success; if a single motion isn’t synced, then the whole thing fails to work. “Getting it right has become an art-form, and I’m incredibly proud that the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team has worked so hard to become the best in the pitlane. “They deserve recognition for their efforts, and this gift from TAG Heuer will be the perfect motivation for maintaining their excellent record.” The Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team has been recognised as achieving the fastest race stop time at every race since the Canadian Grand Prix in June – that’s seven successive grands prix.

Makes you stop and think, doesn’t it?
