TAG Heuer

TAG HEUER — Since 1860 — Founded in Saint-Imier in 1860 by Edouard Heuer, TAG Heuer has marked the history of luxury watchmaking, especially in the fields of chronographs and ultimate precision. A legend in prestige Swiss watchmaking and one of its most innovative Manufacture, TAG Heuer has built on its active commitment in the sports world to create the most accurate timing instruments and wrist timepieces in the world. TAG Heuer is the world leader in high precision luxury chronographs with an unequalled mechanical accuracy of 1/10th, 1/100th, 1/1000th and even 5/10,000th of a second.

In 2012, thanks to the lessons learned through these achievements, TAG Heuer won the world’s most coveted watchmaking award, the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix «Aiguille d’Or». From the Olympic Games in 1920 to its role as official watch and chronograph for the legendary Indy 500 race or for the Formula E, a new FIA championship of 100% electrically powered racing cars, today TAG Heuer is unrelenting in its quest for innovation, excellence, performance and prestige. This ambition is reflected in its partnerships with F1 Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team and its World Champion Jenson Button, with Audi Sport in the Le Mans 24 Hours and endurance races, and with the Automobile Club of Monaco for the prestigious Monaco Grand Prix. TAG Heuer is also a partner of Oracle Racing, the 34th America’s Cup defender and winner of the America’s Cup World Series 2012-2013.

More than ever, the brand epitomizes prestige and performance through active and socially responsible partnerships with actress Cameron Diaz, actors Leonardo DiCaprio, Shah Rukh Khan and Chen DaoMing, and WTA tennis champion Maria Sharapova.

Today, TAG Heuer develops and manufactures its own movement, the Calibre 1887, a chronograph with an oscillating pinion invented by Heuer in 1887. It also handcrafts the Monaco V4, a movement driven by belts,  the Carrera Mikrograph, accurate to 1/100th of a second, and the Carrera MikrotourbillonS, a stunning double tourbillon on a 50Hz movement developed on the Mikrograph platform, and it just launched the MikroPendulumS, the first magnetic double Tourbillon. This exceptional level of watchmaking excellence has earned the company membership in the most exclusive circle of the Swiss watchmaking elite, the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH). This year, TAG Heuer celebrates the 50th anniversary of its iconic timepiece, the Carrera.
