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.

18 Mar. Jenson Button Guest of Honour at TAG Heuer's Grand Prix Event in Melbourne

Last night TAG Heuer hosted its highly anticipated Grand Prix Event at the Melbourne Flagship boutique with a special guest appearance by TAG Heuer Ambassador and Formula 1 champion, Jenson Button.

A stellar line up of Australian identities and VIPs attended the high profile cocktail event, including Brian McFadden and fiancé Vogue Williams, Miss Universe winner and TV personality Rachael Finch, model and personality Erika Heynatz, actor Jai Courtney, and ambassador of the 2012 Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix Kate Peck. High profile sporting identities included Olympic gold medallists Lydia Lassila and Malcolm Paige, AFL footballers Scott Pendlebury (and partner Alix Davis), Sharrod Wellingham and Chris Dawes, and Rugby Union players Nick Phipps and Hugh Pyle.

Button arrived in true Formula 1 glamour with TAG Heuer Gird girls presenting a guard of honour to welcome the champion driver. In his role as MC, network Seven’s Mark Beretta officially welcomed a relaxed and charming Button to the TAG Heuer Flagship boutique before inviting him to unveil the latest timepiece from the leading Swiss watch brand, the new TAG Heuer Formula 1 chronograph.

Much to his delight Jenson was treated to true Melbourne flavour as Collingwood superstar & vice captain, Scott Pendlebury presented him with a signed AFL football. Ever the English gentleman Button reciprocated with a TAG Heuer cap signed.

TAG Heuer’s General Manager, Philip Richards, hosted the event. “The evening was a great success” said Richards. "TAG Heuer has a longstanding relationship with Formula 1 & McLaren and having a champion driver & TAG Heuer Ambassador appear at our Flagship boutique allows us to celebrate our motor-racing DNA in true Formula 1 style.”

Button’s association with TAG Heuer was announced in 2009 adding to TAG Heuer and McLaren’s ledger of the best F1 drivers and world champions.

TAG Heuer has recently marked its 25th year of partnership with McLaren. It is one of the most successful collaborations in sports, during which the team has achieved six FIA World Constructors’ Championship titles and nine FIA World Drivers’ Championship titles.
