TAG Heuer AQUARACER Camouflage 300 Metres – Calibre 5
2/9 The time has come to switch to commando mode because military style is this year’s hottest trend. However, camouflage style does have its risks and can be a bit full on. A few carefully selected accessories give a nod to the trend and instantly lift an outfit; this watch is a perfect example. The Aquaracer Camouflage offers everything you'd expect from an all-terrain watch. Water-resistant to 300 metres, the robust lightweight case is machined from Grade 2 titanium with a matt black PVD treatment to reinforce its stealth effect, as nothing must catch the light or the enemy's eye.
TAG Heuer CARRERA Heuer-01 43 mm
3/9 Unveiled in 2015, the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 opened the doors to a new market. This year, the famous proprietary chronograph is being unveiled with a slightly smaller diameter of 43 mm, in a choice of three versions: intense black, deep navy blue and an elegant cognac brown. The skeleton dial – the trademark of the Heuer-01 – and the sapphire case-back reveal the beauty of the mechanism. A sporty exterior complements the Heuer-01 Manufacture Chronograph movement, named in honour of the brand's founder, Edouard Heuer.
TAG Heuer CARRERA HEUER-01 Rose Gold
4/9 True to its image as a luxury Swiss watchmaker, it was a natural step for TAG Heuer to release the brand's bestseller, the Chrono Heuer 01, in a more precious metal: 18K rose gold. This manufacture chronograph shares all the same features as the original Heuer-01 but to add a touch of luxury to the piece, the watch's lugs, hands and indices are made from 18K rose gold. The piece is finished with a full-grain calfskin leather strap with the TAG Heuer shield embossed on the sections close to the lugs, for a look which is both sporty and elegant.
TAG Heuer CARRERA Heuer-02T with a Baguette Diamond Bezel
5/9 In 2017, one year after the launch of its famed Heuer-02T Manufacture Chrono Tourbillon at BaselWorld 2016, TAG Heuer has unveiled a glamorous new deluxe version, with 68 sparkling baguette diamonds set into the bezel. This dazzling take on mechanical watchmaking strikes a perfect balance between the worlds of luxury jewellery and horology. This version of the Carrera Heuer-02T is made from grade 5 titanium, a modern material which is lighter than steel.
TAG Heuer Carrera Lady 2017
6/9 The Carrera collection is TAG Heuer's flagship collection. In 2017, TAG Heuer decided to put the spotlight on women with a sporty, contemporary version for today's active young women. With a blue sunray dial and a denim-effect leather strap, a black dial enhanced with a touch of rose gold and a full-grain calfskin leather strap, a black dial with an 18K rose gold case and a shiny black alligator skin strap, or lastly the wildly rock 'n' roll full-black look, the new Carrera Ladies speak to a new generation.
New 2017 “Link Lady”
7/9 Elegant, refined and instantly recognisable, the Link Lady is the most feminine watch of all the TAG Heuer collections. Its defining feature is the immediately recognisable bracelet, boasting the signature S-shaped links. It is both an iconic design and a standard bearer in terms of ergonomics and wearer comfort. In steel, with an elegant diameter of 32 mm, the new Link Lady now features a bracelet which is fully integrated into the case. The bracelet still has a curved profile, and the finishes are even more sophisticated: the entire contour of the S radiates a highly polished shine, while the upper surface of each link is fully brushed.
TAG Heuer Steel Link for men Calibre 5
8/9 TAG Heuer’s Link collection is getting a makeover for its 30th birthday with a new version exclusively for men. This model houses an automatic Calibre 5 movement visible through a sapphire case-back, and offers some of the best value for money on today's market, much to the delight of watch collectors. The Link for men is available with three dial variations: black, silver-plated and blue sunray.
TAG Heuer AUTAVIA
9/9 The Autavia, the legendary driver's chronograph from the Sixties beloved of collectors, is making a comeback in 2017. A contraction of AUTomobile and AVIAtion, its name is synonymous with its rotating bezel, its large snailed counters and the exemplary legibility of its black and white. Created in 1962, this iconic model celebrates its 55th anniversary in the form of a neo-retro successor featuring updated functions and a proprietary movement.
Modern yet faithful to its roots, the new generation Autavia channels the spirit of the golden age of motor racing.
