A TAG Heuer watch is a mark of distinction that attracts longing glances from all who see it. Since its beginnings in 1860 in St. Imier, Switzerland, the TAG Heuer brand has stood for quality and innovation and stands proud among the most highly desirable watch brands on the market today.
With designs suitable for men and women, the TAG Heuer range of watches is exciting and stylish and will meet the expectations of the most discerning of wearers.
The Carrera range
Watches from the TAG Heuer Carrera range, first introduced in 1963 and named for Mexico’s Carrera Panamericana motor race, have graced the wrists of some of the greatest names in motor sport. The legendary range has been reinvented over the years, yet still imbues the same bold spirit of its origins.
A popular watch in the range is the Calibre 16 Heritage Automatic chronograph, which features a black dial with flinque effect in a stainless steel case with a polished steel strap. It has embossed chronograph counters that can be seen clearly through the non-reflective, anti-scratch crystal sapphire case.
For the ladies, the Carrera diamond dial and bezel watches are enduring classics of luxurious elegance. Boasting TAG Heuer’s unparalleled excellence, they feature 67 Wesselton diamonds mounted around the dial and bezel. The discerning woman can choose from all stainless steel or stainless steel case with gold bezel and gold and stainless steel strap.
The Monaco range
Continuing the motor racing theme and originally introduced in 1969 in honour of the Monaco Grand Prix, the original Monaco watch was the first automatic chronograph and the first to be cased in a square housing. Typical of the range is the Monaco Calibre 12 Gents Watch, which features a black or blue dial with chronograph and date functions in 39mm stainless steel case, the back of which is transparent so that the movement can be seen.
The Formula 1 range
This range evolved from TAG Heuer’s relationship with the McClaren Formula 1 racing team. With all the characteristics of professional sports watches, they have been worn by motor racing greats like Ayrton Senna and Jensen Button.
The Formula 1 gents watch typifies the range. It features chronograph and date functions combined with a tachymeter. Powered by a quartz movement, it has a 42mm stainless steel case with sapphire crystal glass and is water resistant up to 200 metres. Among the ladies watches in the range, the Formula 1 Ladies Watch features a black face with diamond dots and a diamond-studded bezel for additional elegance.
The Aquaracer range
Inspired by aquatic sports, the TAG Heuer Aquaracer range boasts advanced technology that makes it the benchmark for strength, performance and precision. A fine example of the range is the Bi-Colour gents watch that features a silver chronograph dial in a bi-colour steel and gold case with matching bracelet. It is water resistant up to 300 metres.
Aquaracer watches for women have a sporty but elegant look, one of the most attractive being the Aquaracer Ladies Diamond set watch that has a simple mother-of-pearl diamond dot dial with a diamond-studded bezel set on a stainless steel case and matching bracelet.
The Link series
The TAG Heuer Link series is instantly identifiable from its signature S-shaped bracelet, which adds to the allure of the watch itself. For men, the stunning Stainless Steel Gents Watch is typical of the range. It has a black dial and day/date display. The fully automatic movement is housed in a brushed stainless steel case with matching bracelet and is water resistant to 100 metres.
For the ladies, there are several watches in the Link series to choose from. A good example is the Link Ladies Watch that has a mother-of-pearl diamond dot dial and a quartz movement housed in a stainless steel case and bracelet.
