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 Apr. La Maison TAG Heuer Touring Museum continues its epic journey in Shanghai.

First stop : Shanghai, Gran Gateway mall.

Shanghai, 18 April 2014

Jenson Button was present to officiate the opening of La Maison in China, the traveling version of the famous TAG Heuer 360 Museum in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. And the magic recipe worked again...... Gran Gateway Mall was crowded, TAG Heuer made the buzz !

Jenson Button could enjoy a short watchmaking lesson with Marko Maekinen, TAG Heuer Haute Horlogerie watchmaker.

As Jack Heuer puts it, “Each of the pieces in this show is a precious member of my family. From the oldest stopwatch to the newest chronograph, they show who we are and what we’re made of. I am delighted that the whole world will finally have the opportunity to see and share this with us, to know us by our proudest achievements, most breathtaking creations, and most intense moments.”

Apart from the historical timpeieces on display, one of the main highlights of the event was the stunning La Maison set-up itself. The structures came in 75 crates and took the team 3 nights to set up each element, all crafted with accuracy and precision. Each layout was intertwined to form a delicate lattice which could be seen from the aerial view of the exhibition.

The event ended on a high with a typical Chinese performance Lion dance as well as DJ Naomi. La Maison TAG Heuer which began its epic journey in Kuala Lumpur last February, is now in Shanghai, soon in Beijing ! Its next port of call will be Busan-Korea, Hong-Kong... before crossing the Pacific to live the American dream in Houston, Philadelphia, Miami and Dallas.
