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.

Calibre 360 Chronograph watch

Calibre 360 Chronograph

The world’s only 1/100th of a second mechanical chronograph

Evolving out of the unique heritage of TAG Heuer chronographs and the links between Tag Heuer Carrera collections and automobile racing…

Evolving out of the unique heritage of TAG Heuer chronographs and the links between Tag Heuer Carrera collections and automobile racing - the Calibre 360 Chronograph. A 1/100th of a second mechanical chronograph which is 10 times faster than any other mechanical watch movement.

GENESIS

In 1916, TAG Heuer invented the world's first mechanical stopwatch accurate to 1/100th of a second – the Mikrograph.

In the 1960s, as a tribute to the Tag Heuer Carrera Pan-American Rally, Jack Heuer designs the Tag Heuer Carrera wrist chronograph. Its minimalistic, functional design and high-level precision make it an instant classic.

In 2005, the Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 360 concept watch arrives at Baselworld. It is the direct result of 150 years of  TAG Heuer mechanical chronograph expertise. 

The Calibre 360 beats with two hearts: 2 series of escapement mechanisms. These allow the timepiece impressive accuracy because the chronograph is not simply a section added to the main watch. It is an entirely separate movement with a high frequency balance wheel operating at 360,000 beats per hour. This is 10 times faster than any other mechanical watch movement.

Such precision requires 230 separate pieces, and a super lightweight and miniaturized escapement mechanism and spiral (the diameter of which is less than 26 % of a regular balance wheel). The Calibre 360 has no less than 3 international patents:

  • the 1/100th of a second mechanical chronograph
  • a bidirectional crown
  • a complex date transmission system

Functions & features

The Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 360 Concept Watch pays homage to the Carrera collection and the TAG Heuer's unrivalled heritage in the world of chronographs.

Ten times faster than any other mechanical movement for watches

The Calibre 360 beats with two hearts: 2 series of escapement mechanisms. These allow the timepiece to maintain a regular beat of 28,800 beats/hour, and to attain 360,000 beats per hour in chronograph mode. This is 10 times faster than any other mechanical watch movement.

No less than 3 international patents

The Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 360 has 3 international patents:

  • the 1/100th of a second counter on a mechanical chronograph
  • a bidirectional system for resetting and for the crown: a single crown controls the automatic watch and the mechanical chronograph as well as the time and date functions
  • a complex date transmission system
Heritage styling meets leading edge technology

 

Inspired by the TAG Heuer chronographs of yesteryear, the Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 360 has a streamlined design which is simple to use and easy to read. It has a large stopwatch/ winding button, a 100 minute power reserve counter at 12 o'clock, and an oversized 1/100th of a second counter at 6 o'clock.
