Tag Heuer WatchA Class On Its Own
Created in 1860 in Switzerland, the TAG Heuer watch company has thrived in its mission of achieving excellence and superb performance. The TAG Heuer watch making company was brought within the sleek, sporty ranks of TAG (Techniques d'Avant Garde) in 1985. The merger of these two world class companies was a match made in racing heaven. It is amazing to see how TAG Heuer watches have made the trek from timely precision to classic elegance.
The Grace of Speed
TAG is known world wide for producing parts for Formula One race cars. TAG Heuer watches were redesigned with a sleeker, sportier image in mind. Now you can have the high-end sports car look in a watch. You can also take a very deep walk off of a short pier, and still be able to tell what time it is for 650 feet. Of course, by that point, knowing the time is the last thing on your mind.
Sports seemed to align itself with Heuer long before Techniques d'Avant Garde entered the picture. In 1916, the elegant watch company released, to the amazement of the world, a stopwatch that was accurate to 1/100th of a second. The legendary Steve Mc Queen wore a TAG Heuer watch in the film "Le Mans" in 1971. They played a part in the 1920 Olympic Games, and have served as the official time keepers for the Indy 500 until 2003. TAG Heuer put themselves on a much bigger map by becoming the first Swiss watch to orbit earth.
Star Quality TAGs the Top
The sleek designs and exceptional workmanship have attracted some big names to TAG Heuer watches. Spokeswoman film siren Uma Thurman was recently dubbed by TAG Heuer as the "par excellence" when it comes to women. She sets the standard, exuding the kind of grace and poise that attracted the watchmaker from the beginning.
Another fine example of Heuer.s commitment to excellence is Tiger Woods. As a championship golfer, he has become synonymous with incredible performance and ambition. On and off the course, he is a man of true class. Woods has been very involved with the designing of a new TAG Heuer watch, the first ever professional golf watch.
NASCAR multi-champ Jeff Gordon is another of TAG Heuer watch.s hand-picked timepiece ambassadors. Gordon is a man who knows what he wants and goes for it, as his driving record clearly reflects. This is the same kind of spirit and attitude that has brought TAG Heuer where it is today.
The High-End of Time
Clearly, those who can afford the best choose TAG Heuer watches for their elegant design and impeccable quality. The accuracy of advanced technology, combined with the aesthetic design of the TAG Heuer watch artisans create unique timepieces. So whether you are diving into the depths of the ocean, or into the next adventure in life, a TAG Heuer watch will provide you with a sleek and reliable tool to get there.
