HOW TO KEEP YOUR TAG HEUER WATCH IN WORKING ORDER

In order to reduce the likelihood of your TAG Heuer watch needing repaired we recommend it is kept away from movements that may cause shock. Each watch is designed to resist impact but occasions where it may come under excess stress should be avoided. This is because shock may damage its appearance and cause wear in the delicate inner components. If damage occurs we can offer Tag Heuer rubber band replacement, Tag Heuer watch polishing and all Tag watch repairs UK at Repairs By Post.

Magnetic fields can have a detrimental impact on your watch, if you leave your TAG Heuer watch near strong magnetic fields such as speakers, refrigerators and magnets it may affect its performance. It’s also recommended that your watch is taken off when entering a body scanner at the airport. We offer Tag repairs  and Tag Heuer watch replacement parts to remedy these problems if they occur.

HOW CAN I TELL IF MY MECHANICAL WATCH IS MAGNETISED?

  • Place your watch near a traditional compass
  • If the needle starts to move, it’s magnetised
  • Send your TAG Heuer watch to Repairs by Post for inspection

A quartz watch will only be affected temporarily by magnetic fields and will work again once out of range. However, a mechanical watch may stop working completely so should always be kept at least 5cm away from magnetic devices.

OTHER WAYS TO REDUCE DAMAGE TO YOUR TIME PIECE

To look after your Tag Heuer watch you should;

  • Keep away from extreme temperatures, a sharp change in temperature can cause condensation underneath the crystal.
  • Keep out of strong direct sunlight; this can damage the movement if exposed to temperatures above 60 degrees.
  • Chemical products may corrode the water resistant gaskets and damage the aesthetic of your timepiece.
  • Sand has small minerals in it which can scratch the sapphire crystal or steel bracelet on your TAG Heuer watch.
  • If you’re going to be near water ensure the crown is fully pushed in and avoid the leather strap touching water as this may damage it. We offer Tag watch strap replacement should damage occur. We can offer Tag Heuer crown replacement if there is any damaged sustained.
  • If you have any doubts about the water-resistance of your watch, simply clean it with a soft brush.

TAG HEUER WATCH HISTORY

TAG Heuer watches can be traced back to 1860 when “Heuer Watchmaking” was founded by Edouard Heuer in in St-Imier, Switzerland. He patented his first chronograph is 1882 and by 1887 had patented the ‘oscillating pinion’ which is still used by major watchmakers of mechanical chronographs today.

An oscillating pinion, which comprises a mobile stem and two pinions, allows the chronograph to function very efficiently by replacing the two large wheels of the anterior movements. A coupling system enables the chronograph to locate onto the watch movement with ultimate precision. The chronograph’s lightning fast start — an incredible 2/1,000th-of-a-second — guarantees the utmost in timekeeping accuracy. If there is an inaccuracy in the time keeping of your TAG Heuer watch it should be sent for repair by one of our skilled horologists immediately.

After the success of his previous patents, Heuer continued to innovate in the watch industry. In 1911 he developed the “Time of Trip” patent which was his first dashboard chronograph to be used in automobiles and aircraft. This design encompassed a set of small hands mounted at the 12 o’clock position of the traditional clock, which indicated the duration of the journey. A crown mounted at the top allowed the user start/stop these hands and see the duration of the trip.

1914

It was not until 1914 that Heuer’s first wrist watch was created, as these were designed from traditional pocket watches the crown was positioned at the 12 o’clock position.

1916

Heuer invented the “micrograph” which was the first stop watch with an accuracy of 1/100 of a second. This was followed closely by the “semikrograph” which offered an improved timing of 1/50 of a second.

1930’S AND 1940’S

During these years the “Autavia” was invented, a dashboard clock used in automobiles and aviation. The name is a combination of these names. The companion to the Autavia was the “Hervue” and this design could run for an impressive eight days without being wound.

Heuer’s innovation continues, and by the mid-1940’s this line of watches included two and three register models. The three-register model even included a full day/date/month calendar.

1950’S

In the early 1950’s Heuer was creating watches for Abercrombie & Fitch. The brand created exclusive designs sold only to the retailer. The unique designs included “Seafearer” which was the world’s first chronograph with a tide level indicator and the “Auto-graph” which had a tachometer scale and a manual reference hand which allowed a rally driver or navigator to determine whether the car was achieving the desired pace, over a measured mile. These features could also count golf scores!

1960’S

In 1962 TAG Heuer became the first Swiss watch in space; John Glenn wore a stop watch by the brand when piloting Mercury Atlas 6 spacecraft. The watch is now on display at the San Diego Air and Space Museum. During these years, most of the watches created by the brand used movements manufactured by Valjoux – is a Swiss manufacturer of mechanical watch movements.

During the 1960’s the race was on to introduce automatics chronographs. TAG Heuer was in competition with Zenith and Seiko  to bring these to the market. Repairs by Post also specialise in Seiko watch repairs.  During this time TAG Heuer partnered with Hamilton and Breitling and held press conferences in Geneva and New York, on 3 March 1969 to show their new lines of chronographs. TAG Heuer’s first automatic chronographs were the Autavia, Carrera and Monaco.

The Monaco watch was the first automatic chronograph with a square face and was worn by movie legend Steven McQueen. The Monaco was reissued with a new design in 1998 and was reintroduced again with an entirely new mechanism in 2003 in response to McQueen’s increasing popularity. Today the Monaco can still be purchased and is holding up TAG Heuer’s impeccable standards.

THE MONACO  TODAY

  • Square small seconds and chrono minutes at 3 and 9.
  • Crown design similar to original.
  • Monaco and TAG Heuer logo.
  • Luminescent hands and indexes are to provide visibility under water and in the dark.
  • Small date window at 6 o’clock.
  • All TAG Heuer watches are fitted with sapphire crystal which from a polished slice of solid sapphire that has been created by the fusion and crystallization of alumina. Sapphire is so hard that only a diamond can scratch it.

1970’S

During the 1970’s TAG Heur introduced their first digital chronosplit, which had LCD and LED displays it was named the “Chronosplit”. In these years the brand also started using the Valjoux 7750 (TAG Heuer Calibre 16) movement in its automatic watches and is still seen to be one of the most successful automatic chronograph movements ever made.

1980’S – PRESENT

Until now TAG Heuer was only ever known as “Heuer”. The name we recognise today was formed in 1985 when Techniques d’Avant Garde (TAG) acquired Heuer.

In 2010, TAG Heuer introduced the ‘Pendulum Concept’, the first magnetic oscillator without hairspring capable of providing restoring torque comparable to that of hairspring.

Today TAG Heuer still creates models of their most loved pieces, including the Carrera, which has seen over 10 models since its creation.

TAG HEUER 2016 – CARRERA  02T

  • COSC-certified automatic chronograph combined with a titanium and carbon flying tourbillon.
  • The movement beats at 28,000 vph
  • Water resistance 100 meters
  • Semi-skeletonized dials, highlighting the minute and hour counters at 3 and 9 o’clock

Today, the TAG Heuer family still enjoys leadership of the brand with Jack Heuer, the great grandson of the founder, is the current Honorary Chairman. They still maintain a watchmaking workshop & factory in Switzerland. With renowned sports personalities Cristiano Ronaldo and Maria Sharapova as ambassadors for the brand the statement remains as true today as it did when the brand began in 1860 by Edouard Heuer in Switzerland.

In March of 2017 we were fortunate enough to travel to Basel in Switzerland where we attended Baselworld, the largest international watch and jewellery show. We spent our hours enjoying all the beautiful watches and jewellery that were on show. Here are a few our of favourite Tag watches. These are our own photographs, not professionals, so we apologise for the quality of them!
