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.

Quality & Tests: 60 tests for ultimate quality

The TAG Heuer drive for excellence has pushed its experts to exceed regular watch making standards and establish their own strict quality standards. These TAG Heuer-designed quality testing procedures, tests and tools have been officially endorsed with a patent from the Federal Institute for Intellectual Property in Switzerland.

Whether it is X-Fluorescence to analyse metals and precious elements, or submarine ultrasound waves to test the solidity of jewellery models, TAG Heuer tests and tools use the most advanced cutting-edge technology. In some cases - like the machine designed to test the reliability of Aquaracer 500M push buttons underwater – TAG Heuer have even purpose-built special equipment.

While these numerous quality tests are each carried out independently, the ultimate goal is to give insight into the real life of a TAG Heuer timepiece. For example, after a race, a cyclist might take a shower while wearing the watch. So tests will simulate the shocks and vibration of the race, the effects of perspiration and heat, and also the watch’s water-resistance.

Some of the 60 TAG Heuer quality tests:

1.    Water-resistance
2.    Resistance to U.V. ageing
3.    Resistance to extreme temperatures
4.    Resistance to the external environment
5.    Traction-Resistance
6.    Vibration Resistance
7.    Resistance to dropping
8.    Impact resistance
9.    Resistance of functions to ageing
10.    Analysis of materials and metallic coatings

After each TAG Heuer timepiece has successfully passed these and other stringent tests, it is time for a final inspection. During visitage the watch undergoes a final meticulous examination by an expert watchmaker, who ensures the perfection of the entire piece.
