TAG Heuer is widely known for its chronographs, a watch-style in which it has flourished to the point where it was manufacturing them for many of its historic Swiss rivals at one point. Édouard Heuer, the company’s founder, was a revolutionary engineer and pioneer who established his 19th-century watchmaking company in the village of St-Imier and became a pivotal landmark in the field of manufacturing.
In the 1880s, Heuer received his first chronograph patent, and years later, he invented the oscillating pinion, which is still used nowadays to start and stop chronographs. The firm went on to create chronographs for planes, automobiles, and watercraft. It’s innovations like this that put TAG Heuer on top as one of the most prestigious names in high-end, accurate watchmaking. The unconventional concept of Édouard Heuer is alive and thriving in the twenty-first century. Here are some of TAG Heuer’s most notable works.
