TAG Heuer men’s luxury watches and women’s swiss watches make timekeeping an art.

Within the world of Swiss watches and luxury watches – well known for their quality and precision – TAG Heuer timepieces are in a class apart. Featuring the most advanced technology and unconventional design, they are much more than luxury timepieces or sports watches – they are the benchmark in watchmaking.

Indeed, TAG Heuer chronograph watches are recognised as the height of Swiss watch timekeeping accuracy. As such, the brand’s luxury sport watches are the official timekeepers of one of the world’s most prominent races, the Monaco Grand Prix. TAG Heuer is also proud to be the official partner of Oracle Team USA, winner of the America’s Cup, and cherished Formula 1 automotive manufacture McLaren – bringing together speed and timekeeping precision in perfect harmony.

In doing so, TAG Heuer combines hand craftsmanship with the best in today’s technology. Its ladies’ and men’s watches inspire innovation and excellence while upholding its rich heritage. Fully modern yet decidedly timeless, a TAG Heuer swiss watch exceeds mere aesthetics: ensuring this first-rate mechanical precision, its automatic watches boast high frequencies beginning at 21,600 vibrations per hour and climbing all the way to 360,000 vibrations per hour, as exemplified by the Calibre 360. It is not surprise, then, that a number of its automatic watch movements have earned the prestigious Official Swiss Chronometer Control (C.O.S.C.) certificate.

When it comes to aesthetics, TAG Heuer swiss timepieces are just as impressive. Fashioned by the field’s utmost experts, these luxury Swiss watches blend the finest materials in perfect harmony. Whether utilising the best in traditional materials – like solid gold or stainless steel, calfskin or alligator leather – or complementing them with more current, contemporary materials – like high-tech rubber and modern fabric – TAG Heuer blurs the lines of what sports watches and luxury watches truly are. Likewise, with fine brushing, black PVD finish and ruthenium treatment, the watches’ quality finishes are both sophisticated yet innovative, attractive yet ever functional.

Not to be left behind, its watches for women are the summit of discrete elegance, with its diamond watches adding a particularly soft sparkle of femininity to the iconic men’s watch models that have built TAG Heuer’s reputation: the TAG Heuer Carrera, the Aquaracer, the Monaco, the Link and the TAG Heuer Formula 1. Boasting luxury materials and clean lines, these tasteful ladies’ timepieces continue the tradition of expert craftsmanship and impressive accuracy that have shaped the brand’s DNA for more than a hundred years.

All this to say that TAG Heuer timepieces are about more than just luxury or precision: they embody the best that Swiss craftsmanship has to offer. Arrestingly beautiful yet fully dependable, finely crafted yet resolutely high-tech, strikingly contemporary yet timelessly refined: TAG Heuer gives new meaning to luxury watches for men and women.

Calibre 360 Chronograph

The world’s only 1/100th of a second mechanical chronograph

Evolving out of the unique heritage of TAG Heuer chronographs and the links between Tag Heuer Carrera collections and automobile racing - the Calibre 360 Chronograph. A 1/100th of a second mechanical chronograph which is 10 times faster than any other mechanical watch movement.

GENESIS

In 1916, TAG Heuer invented the world's first mechanical stopwatch accurate to 1/100th of a second – the Mikrograph.

In the 1960s, as a tribute to the Tag Heuer Carrera Pan-American Rally, Jack Heuer designs the Tag Heuer Carrera wrist chronograph. Its minimalistic, functional design and high-level precision make it an instant classic.

In 2005, the Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 360 concept watch arrives at Baselworld. It is the direct result of 150 years of  TAG Heuer mechanical chronograph expertise. 

The Calibre 360 beats with two hearts: 2 series of escapement mechanisms. These allow the timepiece impressive accuracy because the chronograph is not simply a section added to the main watch. It is an entirely separate movement with a high frequency balance wheel operating at 360,000 beats per hour. This is 10 times faster than any other mechanical watch movement.

Such precision requires 230 separate pieces, and a super lightweight and miniaturized escapement mechanism and spiral (the diameter of which is less than 26 % of a regular balance wheel). The Calibre 360 has no less than 3 international patents:

  • the 1/100th of a second mechanical chronograph
  • a bidirectional crown
  • a complex date transmission system

Functions & features

The Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 360 Concept Watch pays homage to the Carrera collection and the TAG Heuer's unrivalled heritage in the world of chronographs.

Ten times faster than any other mechanical movement for watches

The Calibre 360 beats with two hearts: 2 series of escapement mechanisms. These allow the timepiece to maintain a regular beat of 28,800 beats/hour, and to attain 360,000 beats per hour in chronograph mode. This is 10 times faster than any other mechanical watch movement.

No less than 3 international patents

The Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 360 has 3 international patents:

  • the 1/100th of a second counter on a mechanical chronograph
  • a bidirectional system for resetting and for the crown: a single crown controls the automatic watch and the mechanical chronograph as well as the time and date functions
  • a complex date transmission system
Heritage styling meets leading edge technology

 

Inspired by the TAG Heuer chronographs of yesteryear, the Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 360 has a streamlined design which is simple to use and easy to read. It has a large stopwatch/ winding button, a 100 minute power reserve counter at 12 o'clock, and an oversized 1/100th of a second counter at 6 o'clock.
