TAG Heuer’s Latest Model in Carrera Ladies’ Watch Line.

Written by Debbie. Posted in TAG Heuer, Women's Watches

Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer’s Carrera Ladies’ watch line has always offered feminine watches with an emphasis on an understated elegance and its newest in the line, the Rose Gold 27mm model, is no exception.

The Tag Heuer Carrera Ladies Rose Gold 27mm with the glossy white alligator strap.

A round 27mm case made of polished 18k solid Rose Gold with a bezel and crown also made of solid 18k Rose Gold  surround the white mother-of-pearl dial. The dial is protected by double-anti-reflective treated, scratch resistant crystal sapphire to ensure durability and clear readings. The indexes are hand applied and made of 18k solid Rose Gold while the polished 18k solid Rose Gold hour, minute, and second hands feature luminescent markers for easy visibility in less-than-quality lighting. At 3 o’clock is a small date window, big enough to be legible yet small enough to maintain the elegant simplicity of the device.

The Carrera utilizes an extremely accurate quartz movement. Quartz movements are battery powered and uses an electrical current to cause the quartz crystal regulator to vibrate consistently at a frequency of approximately 32,768 times per second. This provides the movement a near perfect precision with a variation of only a few seconds a month. The quartz movements used by TAG Heuer offer excellent resistance to magnetic fields and shocks. The batteries for the quartz movements in this watch have a service life of roughly 2 years and an internal End-Of-Life battery indicator that will cause the seconds hand to make four-second jumps at intervals of four-seconds to indicate the battery is weakening. The watch will, however, continue to display the correct time until the battery is completely spent. The features of the quartz movement ensure that this is a watch that will need minimum attention, as far as the movement is concerned, making it an ideal accessory for women who may be more-or-less careless in that regard.

The slight size of this watch epitomizes the emphasis on femininity of the design of this watch. The simple yet elegant appearance of this watch is emphasized by the slight contrast of the 18k Rose Gold components and the mother-of-pearl on the dial. The watch comes with the choice of either a black glossy alligator strap, to offer a contrast to the delicate colors of the dial and case, or a white glossy alligator strap to compliment the delicate colors of the dial and case, while both have an 18k solid Rose Gold pin buckle.

The Tag Heur Carrera Ladies’ Rose Gold 27mm with glossy black alligator strap.

This is a simple, elegant watch that utterly embraces femininity through the size of the watch and the combination of the white mother-of-pearl of the dial and the Rose Gold of the case, indexes, hands, bezel and crown. This watch exudes the luxury and elegance of the woman wearing it, whether worn in a formal environment or a casual one. In short, the simplicity of design and operation of this beautifully understated watch sure to please almost any woman.

TAG Heuer, Get Real

Written by Debbie. Posted in Authentic Watches, Men's Watches, More News, TAG Heuer, Watch Brands

Buya Genuine TAG Heuer

TAG Heuer is probably one of the most sought after luxury sport watch brands in the world; they are also the most widely copied.  Everyone wants to own one, and so the demand has driven replica manufacturers to come out of the woodwork.  They all claim to offer “virtually the same” product, but do you buy it?  Don’t buy it.  TAG Heuer has been making high quality watches for over 150 years.  They pride themselves on that quality and there is not a fake out there that is crafted with the same fine materials or superior craftsmanship.  There are many ways of detecting a fake.

First of all, most makers of replicas aren’t meticulous about the details of their watches.  You can look for misspelled words or pieces that aren’t quite quality.  Common sense plays a big part here.  If things just don’t look right, you probably have a fake.  If you still aren’t sure after close examination, you can take your watch to an authorized repair center and have them open up the back.  Most watch repair men can detect a fraud, very quickly. 

TAG Heuer watches are pricey and worth every penny.  Don’t get taken by a fake.

Written by Debbie. Posted in More News, News, TAG Heuer, Watch Brands

Following the TAG Heuer Tesla Roadster around the world can keep a gal pretty busy.  This week the Roadster landed, figuratively speaking, at China’s Great Wall.  This battery operated machine has plugged in everywhere from India, to Russia…and now they must find the power of the Great Wall. As the Tesla roadster pulled into, what is thought to be the most culturally significant landmark in its year and an half road trip, who was waiting?  None other than the most well respected actor in China, Chen Dao.  Dao is famous for his role in “Hero” and his upcoming debut in “Aftershock”.  The Chinese actor took the TAG Heuer Tesla Roadster out for a quick spin, and was thrilled to be the Ambassador for the Chinese stop.  The Roadster’s trip, entitled “Odyssey of Pioneers” is a 37,000 kilometer jaunt, covering 15 cities on a total of 3 continents.  The stop in Beijing was the eighth of the 15 stops for this zero emissions vehicle.  The Tesla Roadster is a revolutionary car, which runs on conventional electricity.  The sources the Roadster has drawn power from are hotel outlets, solar panels, and even a barn in Switzerland allowed the Tesla to plug in.  You can track the Tesla’s journey on Facebook, if you are interested, or stay tuned for my next update!

Jason Bourne Sporting A TAG Heuer

First and foremost, TAG Heuer is a watch making company.  They have earned a legendary reputation for their innovativeness and dedication to timekeeping.  Creating the most accurate chronographs in history and developing inventions, which were patented, and still in use today by many fine watch companies.  They obviously have strong ties to the Formula One racing world, but did you know that TH has a presence in Hollywood?  As early as 1960, TAG Heuer was working on the development of the, now famous TY Film Master stopwatch.   The Film Master was designed to give Hollywood directors the ability to track how much of their film footage had been used in a particular filming sequence.  These innovations for the film industry gave TAG Heuer a place on the big screen.  Today, the avant-garde watch maker has a presence in the filming of many great movies.  In “Good Luck Chuck” starring Dane Cook and Jessica Alba, Dane is wearing a TH Monaco Chronograph.  In Jodie Foster’s film, the “Brave one”, her character sports a TAG Heuer Twin-Time Carrera, and in “The Bourne Ultimatum”, the famous character which Matt Damon plays, wears a TAG Heuer Link Chronograph, featuring a blue dial.  This huge screen presence is evidence of the respect that actors and directors have for the TAG Heuer name.
