Here at Albert’s Diamond Jewelers, one of our favorite brands is TAG Heuer. Not simply because the Swiss designer creates some of the industry’s most remarkable timepieces, but because there’s a resonant timelessness inherent in their collections. What do we mean by this? Let’s use the Monaco collection as an example. First introduced in 1969, this collection was the first watch line that featured a square case; the bold colors on the pieces’ dials complementing the bold square subdials. In the decades since this timepiece was worn my Steve McQueen in “Le Mains,” the 160-year old TAG Heuer has continued devising some of the world’s most unique timepieces available, and we’re going to explore the brand here:
History of TAG Heuer
Founded in 1860, TAG Heuer has been the bedrock for some of the timekeeping innovations that have revolutionized history. Inventor of the world’s first stopwatch. Inventor of the world’s first crown-operated winding watch. Inventor of the world’s first automatic watch. Designer of the world’s first luxury Swiss smartwatch. All these things are part of the TAG Heuer wheelhouse, and it makes the brand a natural fit for the racer, the outdoorsman, or sports player with a passion for inventiveness.
Today, TAG Heuer is a proud member of the Albert’s Diamond Jewelers showcase of luxury watches, and the pieces that we offer to both men and women represent the epitome of luxury and technological progress.
What Distinguishes TAG Heuer
When you look at a TAG Heuer collection like Aquaracer, you immediately see what sets the brand apart from others. The distinctive 12-sided bezel, the touch of diamond on the women’s watch line, the secure diving-glove extension, and a double safety gasket case all come together in a timepiece that’s both cool and cutting-edge. Collections like TAG Heuer Connected, the smartwatch line we previously mentioned, utilize ceramic bezels to lend a sense of futuristic style to the flat screens that are protected by sapphire crystals.
Carrera and Autavia are two collections that strongly gesture to TAG Heuer’s long history as an aviator or motorist’s watch. Both appeal to that sense of adventure in uniquely different ways. When you see a Carrera watch, you see fantastic tourbillons and skeleton designs made to resemble the inner workings of a sports car; Autavia watches turn their eye toward the vintage styles that were popularized by adventurous men in the beginning of the century.
