Timekeeping becomes an art with automatic luxury watches from TAG Heuer.

All around the world, Swiss watches and luxury watches are celebrated for their quality, craftsmanship and precision. And when it comes to Swiss watches, TAG Heuer timepieces know no equal. Possessing inventive, contemporary designs and cutting-edge technology, they are more than mere luxury timepieces or automatic watches – they are in a class apart.

Conceived and manufactured by leading experts, these luxury Swiss watches perfectly pair the finest materials with innovative technology. Classic materials, such as soft calfskin, quality alligator leather, noble solid gold and hardwearing stainless steel, are given a fresh, avant-garde edge through the addition of high-tech rubber or modern fabric. Redefining sports watches and luxury watches, TAG Heuer applies quality finishes, including fine brushing, black PVD finish and ruthenium treatment, for timepieces that are elegant, modern, beautiful and practical, all at once.

No less impressive, its watches for women are the pinnacle of discrete elegance. With its diamond watches, for example, TAG Heuer adds a hint of sparkle to the renowned men’s watch models that are the foundation of the TAG Heuer name: the TAG Heuer Carrera, the Monaco, the Link, the Aquaracer and the TAG Heuer Formula 1 are also sophisticated ladies’ timepieces that carry on the heritage of artistry and accuracy that have been the brand’s calling card for over a century.

Of course, TAG Heuer is more than just sublime aesthetics. Its watches combine manual craftsmanship with the best high technology, for ladies’ and men’s watches that perpetuate a legacy while inspiring innovation and originality. Entirely modern yet always sophisticated, a TAG Heuer watch doesn’t stop at gorgeous aesthetics. Indeed, its automatic watches boast high frequencies of between 21,600 to 360,000 vibrations per hour (as with the Calibre 360), ensuring impeccable mechanical precision. It therefore comes as little surprise that a number of its automatic watch movements bear the prestigious Official Swiss Chronometer Control (C.O.S.C.) certificate.

It’s no wonder that TAG Heuer chronograph watches are admired as the peak of Swiss watch timekeeping accuracy. These luxury sport watches are the official timekeepers of the Monaco Grand Prix – one of the world’s most esteemed racing events – while the brand is the official partner of both America’s-Cup-winner Oracle Team USA and revered Formula 1 automotive manufacture McLaren. An ideal marriage of speed and timekeeping precision.

One thing is clear: TAG Heuer timepieces go beyond mere luxury or precision: they unite the best in Swiss craftsmanship while delving deep into the future. Visually sublime yet eternally reliable, perfectly crafted yet resolutely high-tech, modern yet timeless, TAG Heuer is redefining luxury watches for men and women.

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.
