The History of TAG Heuer

Image result for Tag Heuer

Tag Heuer is a heavy hitter when it comes to the evolution of the modern chronograph. The brand is synonymous for racing sports and adventurous bravado fused together. If you are looking for watches that’re robust, functional, and never fail to impress, TAG Heuer watches may just be the one for you.

When talking about the history of TAG Heuer, you first have to talk about Heuer. The Heuer brand was founded in 1860 by Eduoard Heuer. In just a few short years, Heuer filed an impressive number of patents. During 1869, they secured the patent for a keyless, crown-operated winding system for pocket watches. In 1882, they patented the company’s first chronograph. And in 1887, they received one of their most notable patents for an oscillating pinion mechanism. Major watchmakers still use this technology. That same year, Edouard’s son Jules-Edouard joined the family business. Sadly, founder Edouard Heuer passed away five years later, in 1892.

Jules-Edouard proudly carried on his father’s work. In 1895, the company filed yet another patent for its first water resistant case. Then, in 1911, Heuer patented their first dashboard chronograph called Time of Trip. This patent is particularly notable because it sparked the longstanding relationship between Heuer and the automobile and airline industries. The company’s growth allowed for increased research and development, which ultimately led to their next big breakthrough. In 1916, Heuer released the Micrograph, the most accurate stopwatch at the time.

For the next few decades, the brand continued to focus on their close relationship with the automobile and airline industries. In the 1930’s, they began producing chronographs specially designed for pilots. Then, in 1933, Heuer introduced another dashboard instrument for automobiles and planes: the Autavia. This clock featured a timer function and could run for an impressive eight days without being wound.

The 1950’s also marked the beginning of Heur’s partnership with Abercrombie & Fitch. They produced exclusive versions of the Seafarer and Auto-Graph for the brand, with special dials and unique color patterns.

In 1962, Heuer made history as the first Swiss watchmaker to enter outer space. On February 20th, John Glenn made the first American space flight with a Heuer stopwatch on his wrist.

A year later in 1963, Heuer launched one of its now iconic models: the Carrera chronograph. Then, in 1969, the brand made one of its most groundbreaking horological advancements. Heuer had discretely been working on a top secret effort called Project 99 in tandem with Breitling, Buren, and Dubois-Depraz. Together, they invented the first self-winding chronograph movement, called the Chronomatic. They used it in three wrist chronograph models: the Carrera, the Autavia, and the brand new Monaco.

The design alone was destined to set new standards. The watch world had never seen a dial as modern, as tidily comprehensible and as readily legible as the face of the Carrera. Jack Heuer, who was responsible for the model’s design, relied on minimalism to achieve this clarity. “We eliminated all inessential extra subdivisions, which resulted in a totally clear, clean and stylistically pure dial.”

Last but not least, the style that Jack Heuer conceived for the Heuer Carrera also expressed his admiration for modern design. He loved furniture by Le Corbusier and Charles Eames. He liked Oscar Niemeyer’s architecture. And he correctly anticipated that the boom in space travel would further strengthen the trend toward straightforward design.

Especially the early puristic Carrera chronographs with their twin and triple subdials rank among the most handsome watches ever built. Customers’ subsequent requests for a tachymeter scale were granted, which made the dial somewhat more crowded. But the tachymeter was soon repositioned onto the inner tension ring and the fifth-of-a-second scale retreated onto the dial.The earliest Heuer Carreras needed manual winding. An automatic caliber for chronographs was not yet available, so Jack Heuer decided to develop one. To finance the necessarily enormous investment, he joined forces with appropriate competitors such as Willy Breitling, as well as Hans Kocher, the technical director of Buren Watch S.A. and Dubois-Dépraz S.A. The Hamilton manufacturer joined this trio later. The unveiling ensued simultaneously in Geneva and New York in 1969, when the illustrious team premiered Calibre 11, the world’s first automatic chronograph movement with microrotor. This pioneering achievement paved the way toward a bright future for Heuer’s chronographs – first and foremost the Carrera – for everyday use and motorsport.

The Carrera’s first collection was already a worldwide success. By the mid 1960s, the catalogue already included the Carrera 12, Carrera 45, Carrera Tachy, Carrera Deci and Carrera Black models. A world premiere followed in the mid 1970s with the debut of the first chronograph hosting a digital date display on a printed ring.

Tag Heuer Grand Carrera Caliber 36 Replica

This watch is probably one of the famous series when it comes to this brand’s watches. You might be wondering why; the main reason is that this particular watch is very classy but manages to keep quite a modern touch to it. Obviously, TAG Heuer Grand Carrera Calibre 36 is the right choice for a wide range of people, making it more and more popular. This watch was also a great step forward when it came to technology as it featured the first mechanical chronograph that measured and displayed time to 1/10th of a second. It has been inspired from the race car engine design so fans will simply love the fact that this watch maintains that car feel without loosing its elegance.

Here we have two watches, both pretty similar, but one is a replica watch and the other is an original. When it comes to the replica watch, we have the same modern style and elegance with a few small differences. However, the watch is wearable and manages to catch the style suggested by the original brand.

The first noticeable difference is the fact that the hour, minute and second markings are not the same on the replica watch as they appear to be a slightly different and darker color. However, this is not very noticeable because the whole design manages to make this look decent. Also, the difference is not big and will only be noticed by someone who is well versed in watches.

Another difference is the fact that the numbers on the chronograph are not the same numbers showed on the original watch chronograph. This happens, unfortunately, with both chronograph so if you inspect the watch closely, you will notice that the original watch features a correct set of numbers while the replica watch doesn’t.

It’s a Quartz powered Japanese replica and the seconds hand ticks. It’s not one of the best replica Tag Heuer watches. It has some faults which, even if they are small, they add up.

Replica Tag Heuer Calibre 5 Watches

I was telling you in my last replica Tag Heuer watches post that the Tag Heuer Calibre 5 will be my next watch. Since I’ve seen it I wanted to have one in my collection, and now I finally got it, and I’m going to review it for you.

The designs created by Tag Heuer are some of my favorites, especially the newest addition to my fake Tag Heuer watches, the Calibre 5. I love an intricate design with many details on the dial, like the Tag Monaco replica or the Tag Heuer Grand Carrera Calibre 17 cena, but sometimes, a simple model like this one just does it for me.

As I was telling you in my previous blog post about this model, there are two versions. One has a leather strap and a white dial and the second one a stainless steel bracelet and black dial. Obviously, this is the second version. The dial is minimalistic, and it only has a few elements. It features a black dial with indexes that mark the hours. All the hour markers are represented by a thick bar, and only the 12 o’clock is represented through two of the same lines. The dial is surrounded by a detailed track for seconds and minutes, with numerals at every quarter. This makes it easier for you to easily tell the time with precision. Back to the dial, it also features the Tag Heuer and Carrera logo right beneath the 12 o’clock. The date window at 3 o’clock gives the dial a balanced look. Right above 6 o’clock you can see the model name. The minute and seconds hand are made from the same material as the numerals and other elements.

The movements on this watch are Swiss because I really wanted it to look and feel like the original and, as you know, the Swiss movements are the closest ones. It was a great choice because this watch has a nice sweep and, after wearing it for a week, I didn’t notice any time loss. Believe me, I checked. Both the looks and the movements on this watch are top notch, and I couldn’t have made a better choice than this. I still have to see how it work in the longer run, but for now, it’s good as it is.

The details on the dial look great, and the Swiss movements are what I expected. Of course, it helps that the design isn’t very detailed, so there aren’t many details that need to be replicated. Even so, the materials also feel high quality and the watch looks and feels great. From all the replica Tag Heuer watches I’ve owned until now, this one is the best.

Something about TAG Heuer

First conceived by Edouard Heuer in 1860, TAG Heuer has been at the forefront of watch innovation ever since. In 1887 the brand devised and built the ‘oscillating pinion’, used to this day in the production of mechanical chronographs. TAG watches have graced the wrists of the world’s elite throughout history, including both Royalty and presidents alike. Today, TAG are now a go-to brand for those looking for sporting luxury, and with such a vast collection we can see why.

TAG Heuer Carrera: the timeless collection. In 1887, Edouard Heuer made history with the oscillating pinion. In 1963, Jack Heuer named the Carrera collection after the CARRERA PANAMERICANA, a road race of legend. He imagined an iconic design with a wide-open, easy-to-read dial and a shock-resistant and waterproof case tough enough for even the most intense road wear.
