TAG Heuer was proud to celebrate 100 Years of Innovation at the Aventura Mall in Miami on August 10 with brand ambassador, Giancarlo Stanton, right fielder for the Miami Marlins. Stanton became a spokesman for TAG Heuer in September of 2015, connecting the world of baseball with the premier Swiss luxury sports watch brand.
Established in 1860, TAG Heuer has excelled as a luxury sports brand by perfecting the chronograph movement and crafting watches that guarantee unwavering precision despite extreme conditions. TAG Heuer’s commitment to excellence under pressure finds kinship with Giancarlo Stanton, who thrives in the high stakes and competitive environment of Major League Baseball. During the event, Stanton wore one of the newest pieces in the Carrera collection, the Heuer 01.
At the exhibit, TAG Heuer showcased historical timepieces celebrating 100 years of advancements in watchmaking, displaying the brand’s past alongside its future to highlight TAG Heuer’s heritage of innovation. The brand presented the 1916 Mikrograph and the 2016 re-edition, the 1963 Carrera and its evolution to the Heuer 01 and Heuer 02, and most strikingly, the first 1916 wristwatch alongside the Connected Watch.
Guests were able to virtually experience the history of the Carrera watch from the 1960’s to the present time in a two-minute video with 360-degree views. To further celebrate the Carrera, an original 1953 Studebaker souped up with a NASCAR engine, an homage to the famous Mexican Carrera Panamericana race remake of the 1953 Studebaker was displayed to pay homage to driver Hilaire Damiron and the Mexican Carrera Panamericana race which inspired the Carrera collection name. TAG Heuer has a long connection to racing, notably since 1963 when Jack Heuer designed the Carrera, a revolutionary chronograph designed specifically for racing drivers, which has since become a symbol of the brand. TAG Heuer has continued its support of the legendary competition and recently signed a two-year partnership as the official timekeeper and the official timepiece for the race. Karen Leon, daughter of Eduardo Leon, President of the Carrera Panamericana, was also in attendance at the Aventura Mall to celebrate the history of TAG Heuer and the Carrera Panamericana.
Over the years, Omega has remained a favourite luxury watch among buyers because it has kept track of latest fashion trends. Each collection by Omega reflects a certain taste. There is a watch collection to match the choice of every watch lover. Here are some impressive collections by Omega Watches for men and women.
In the year 2015, Omega introduced the Master Chronometer Collection that has further expanded the standards of precision for luxury timepieces. Chronometric performance and magnetic resistance are other vital traits of the collection. The high popularity of this range of watches calls for the introduction of 12th and 13thMaster Chronometer Calibres in the year 2018. The improved testing and certification are now made possible through the new Omega Factory that opened in the year 2017. Be assured of best quality for many years to come as Omega constantly works on new calibres for the collection.
Omega marked its return into the diving watches through the original Omega Diver 300M introduced in 1993. The watch has a popular following and also prides a long-standing relationship with James Bond. On completing 25 years, the brand Omega is coming up with some additions to this impressive collection. Fourteen unique models are being added to the collection which includes 6 timepieces in stainless steel and 8 timepieces in a mix of Gold and stainless steel. The new additions to the collection are sized at 42mm. Each new timepiece comes with a Master Chronometer Calibre 8800 taking the entire series of these Omega Watches for Mento a higher realm.
Hermès line is an impressive effort by the French luxury house in creating a timepiece that succeeds what they would otherwise be able to create were it not for a few advantages. The fact that Hermès has partial ownership of Vaucher for their movements and acquired their own dial and case manufacturing facility allows this Hermès Slim d’Hermès Perpetual Calendar to be an undoubtedly alluring piece that exceeds expectations in some regards. But, it comes with a price tag that is sure to make even the most fawning admirers recoil.
A well-known luxury house, Hermès is now aiming to increase its presence in the world of haute horologerie. Despite being a non-traditional watch brand, it is uniquely positioned and equipped for this task. Between acquiring its own case and dial manufactures and having a partial ownership stake in Vaucher, the renowned movement manufacture, Hermès was able to put together a watch with the unusual design elements and features of the Slim d’Hermès Perpetual Calendar. From the super-slim movement with the signature ‘H’ decoration to the sub-dial spacing/tiers and lug shapes, this watch would have been prohibitively expensive, if not impossible, to put together using suppliers and outsourced assembly.
For those who may not be familiar with perpetual calendars, it is a complication in which the watch accounts for all the eccentricities of the Gregorian calendar such as leap years and months with differing numbers of days. Theoretically, if you keep the watch wound (and don’t fly across the world), you wouldn’t need to change the date until the year 2100. In addition to time and perpetual calendar functions, the watch also has a moonphase indicator and second time zone with day/night indication.
