About TAG Heuer
TAG Heuer, the avant-garde of Swiss watchmaking since 1860. Ever since, TAG Heuer has been striving to push the boundaries further, inventing timepieces for those who love to defy convention. This technical expertise was harnessed at a very early stage for achieving extreme accuracy, particularly in the creation of exceptional chronographs.
Under the impetus of Jean-Claude Biver, CEO of TAG Heuer and Chairman of the Watch Division of LVMH Group, the new models, including the connected watch developed with Intel and Google, exhibit a new dynamism: faster lead times and developments to better respond to market expectations, and a completely transformed environment. TAG Heuer is currently the only watch brand to be able to communicate in the four different worlds: Art, Lifestyle, Sport and Heritage.
Our partnerships (in football, with the English Premier League, Manchester United, the Bundesliga, the Major Soccer League in the US, the Chinese Football League, the Japanese Football League and the Australian national football team, and also the World Surf League and its Big Wave Tour, the FIA Formula E Championship, the F1 Monaco Grand Prix, the BMC Racing cycling team…) and our ambassadors (the F1 Red Bull Racing Team, living football legend Cristiano Ronaldo, It girl Cara Delevingne, electronic music icons David Guetta and Martin Garrix, American star quarterback Tom Brady, Australian actor Chris Hemsworth…) all reflect the values shared by the brand – teamwork, ambition and a taste for challenge – which drive TAG Heuer to go beyond the traditions of the watchmaking industry. Our slogan #DontCrackUnderPressure is much more than an affirmation: it’s a state of mind. TAG Heuer is an LVMH Group company. For more information, visit tagheuer.com
