Buy The Best Brands-Tag Heuer

Updated on June 8, 2012

Tag Heuer watch review

What makes you tick?

While most watch buyers and enthusiasts opine that Tag Heuer is the best among the best, others still question this seemingly baseless claim. Proponents of Tag Heuer refer to their watch is having more stylish watch designs than other brands.

founded in 1860 Tag Heuer has set many major milestones in fine watchmaking,specialising in the field of chronographs and ultimate timekeeping precision.

Nevertheless, what separates the extraordinary from the ordinary? To answer that question, it might be worth looking into the words of President and CEOJean-ChristopheBabin as quoted in the Tag Heuer website in celebration of their 150th year anniversary:

"TAG Heuer introduces the first avant-garde 360 degree watchmaking museum, embodying 150 years of unique heritage displayed to catch the imagination, and envision and build the next 150 years. It reflects the innovation, precision, performance and prestigious sports embedded in our DNA. What differentiates one brand from another? Why does the TAGHeuer range currently encompass lines such as the TAGHeuer Formula 1, Monaco, Carrera, the SLR Chronograph or the Grand Carrera? Why is TAGHeuer the only watch brand to offer instruments that are accurate to 1/10th, 1/100th and 1/1000th of a second for wristwatches, and to 1/10,000th of a second for timekeeping? The answer is simple: it is all a matter of DNA, just like human beings. The unique combination that makes each person different from another and implies that right from birth we are endowed with certain characteristics inherited from our parents and from their combined DNA."

This statement clearly shows that originality is inherent for quality manufacturers. Copycats and wannabes may try their best but for as long as they do not learn to be creatively original or at least innovative, they could not even hope to match, much less surpass the quality of original artisanship. It may be true that the price tags for high quality watches like Tag Heuer are quite steep; however, there is always a price to pay for authentic design, innovation, and style. Function then design seems to be the common rule. Another way of describing them are as combinations of technology and aesthetics in their respective zeniths. 

Timeless Tag Heuer Watches

To attain a more objective perspective, buyers are often advised to consider that most important aspects of the products they wish to purchase and baseline the competing brands based on that criterion. In the case of watches for example, timepiece accuracy is usually mentioned as the primary quality. A noteworthy aspect is customized designs, that is, the watch's features should match the specific needs of the end user. Design and durability follow next. When you combine extraordinary levels of performance in these aspects then you might get your idyllic timepiece, a considerable investment that some have even passed on to the younger generation as a type of heirloom, or legacy, if you will.

Tag Heuer Timing For Sports

Tag Heuer has its brand firmly in place in the world of sports to create the most accurate timing instruments the world has seen.Tag Heuer has been used in the Olympics.The legendary timing of up to 1/10,000of a second for the Indy 500 and the Formula1 team McLaren have also encompassed the brand for the last 25 years.

In conclusion, and looking back to the CEO’s words, you can ask yourself what your DNA dictates to be your design. Remember, that technology should follow people’s requirements, not the other way around. And, if you should choose to look for a watch that matches your lifestyle, needs, and tastes, Tag Heuer can be one of the brands you can consider.
