TAG Heuer ladies and men watches elevate swiss watches timekeeping to an art.

Recognised the world over for both craftsmanship and accuracy, Swiss watches are synonymous with luxury watches… and within this remarkable universe, TAG Heuer timepieces stand as the peak achievement in watchmaking. With progressive designs and technological innovation, they represent more than mere sports watches or luxury timepieces – they embody a class apart.

Indeed, TAG Heuer chronograph watches stand alone as the summit of Swiss watch timekeeping accuracy. In a sublime union of speed and precision, the company is the official partner of Oracle Team USA – champion of the America’s Cup – and of renowned Formula 1 car manufacture McLaren. In addition, its luxury sport watches serve as the official timekeepers of the Monaco Grand Prix – one of the most illustrious races in the world.

Timelessly elegant yet decidedly modern, a TAG Heuer watch combines hand workmanship with the best in cutting-edge technology, for ladies’ and men’s watches representing rich heritage, distinctive quality and novel developments. With automatic watches that feature high frequencies between 21,600 and 360,000 vibrations per hour (as with the Calibre 360), exceptional mechanical accuracy is not the exception, but the rule. As such, numerous automatic watch movements by TAG Heuer boast the respected Official Swiss Chronometer Control (C.O.S.C.) certificate.

From an aesthetic standpoint, TAG Heuer timepieces are no less remarkable. These luxury Swiss watches bring together a perfect union of premium materials selected and crafted by expert specialists. By combining the very best traditional materials, like lustrous gold, resistant steel, supple calfskin or the finest alligator leather, or by accentuating them with the latest modern innovations, such as state-of-the-art rubber and textiles, TAG Heuer erases the lines between the conventional perceptions of sports and luxury watches. Quality finishes that include black PVD finish, delicate brushing and ruthenium coating are as distinguished as they are inventive, and as aesthetically pleasing as they are practical.

Equally outstanding are TAG Heuer swiss watches for women – the perfect embodiment of discrete sophistication. Its diamond watches, for instance, bring a hint of dazzling femininity to the legendary men’s watch models on which the TAG Heuer name was built: the Monaco, the Aquaracer, the TAG Heuer Carrera, the Link and the TAG Heuer Formula 1. Stylish ladies’ timepieces boasting sumptuous materials and restrained lines, these feats of watchmaking perpetuate the expert artistry and flawless precision that have marked the brand’s identity for over one hundred years.

Visually beautiful, unequivocally dependable, perfectly fashioned, elegantly avant-garde…TAG Heuer watches go far beyond luxury or precision timepieces; they are the summit in Swiss skill and expertise, thrust boldly forward into the unknown to redefine swiss ladies and men watches.

What is an automatic movement?

An automatic movement is a mechanical watch movement that is wound by the motion of the wearer’s wrist. The rotor pivots freely around a spindle, and a movement in either direction helps to rewind the mainspring. The watch is regulated by a spiral balance wheel that vibrates 6-8 times a second. An automatic movement is composed of more than 70 parts (up to 230 parts for the Calibre 360). While it is  slightly less precise than a quartz movement (by a few minutes per month), it is the ultimate example of Swiss watchmaking expertise and tradition.

TAG Heuer automatic movements

In the great tradition of Swiss watchmaking, all TAG Heuer automatic movements are made in Switzerland, and meet extremely strict criteria for precision.
Their high frequency (ranging from 21,600 vibrations per hour to 36,000 in the Calibre 36 model and as many as 360,000 in the Calibre 360) ensures excellent mechanical precision.
A number of TAG Heuer automatic movements are awarded an Official Swiss Chronometer Control (C.O.S.C.) Certificate, the ultimate recognition of precision and reliability.

 

Power reserve

 TAG Heuer automatic movements have a power reserve of about 42–48 hours, depending on the model. This means that when they are fully wound they can continue to operate for almost two days and nights without being worn. The mainspring can also be rewound manually using the crown unscrewed and pulled out to position 1 (avoid using force). Note: do not forget to screw the crown down again in position 0.

Taking care of the movement

As with every micro-mechanism that operates continuously, an automatic watch movement requires regular maintenance. With proper care, it will work perfectly and last for generations. TAG Heuer recommends a maintenance service every two years as well as an annual water-resistance check. A one-year extension warranty on the work carried out is given to all watches that are maintained by an official TAG Heuer Service Center.
