History Of TAG Heuer Watches

TAG Heuer watches have been a staple in the watchmaking industry since 1860. Founded by Edouard Heuer, the company has grown from a small workshop in Saint-Imier, Switzerland to become one of the most respected watchmakers in the world.

The company’s first breakthrough came in 1882 when it released the oscillating pinion, a mechanism that allowed watchmakers to increase the accuracy of their timepieces by a full second per day. This invention soon became the standard for the industry.

In 1911, Heuer made its name in the world of racing when it provided dashboard clocks to the legendary Indianapolis 500 race. The company went on to create the first chronograph wristwatch in 1914 and the first ever waterproof chronograph in 1945.

In the 1950s, Heuer released a series of chronographs that have become some of the most iconic watches of all time. These include the Carrera, Monaco, and Autavia models.

In 1985, TAG (Techniques d’Avant Garde) Group acquired Heuer and the company was renamed TAG Heuer. Since then, TAG Heuer has continued to innovate and create some of the most stylish and sophisticated watches in the world.

Today, TAG Heuer is one of the leading watchmakers in the world and their watches are worn by some of the most influential people in the world. From athletes to actors, TAG Heuer watches are a symbol of success, quality, and timeless style.
