TAG Heuer is one of the oldest Swiss watchmakers with a history stretching back to the 18th century. Despite its long history TAG Heuer has always been underestimated and considered to be an entry-level luxury watch brand. TAG Heuer watches have always been widely available at mom-and-pop jewelers and department stores retailing for as low as about $1,000 or less which is significantly low compared to other brands of its nature like Panerai, Breitling, Patek Philippe which can have their entry-level watches selling for at least $20000 each.

TAG Heuer was found by Swiss Edouard Heuer and was initially known as Uhrenmanufaktur Heuer AG translated in English Heuer Watchmaking Inc. Edouard Heuer was both an entrepreneur and an inventor. In in the year 1882, he patented his first chronograph and in 1887 the "oscillating pinion".
After acquiring its series of impressive patents, TAG Heuer became a popular and well reputable brand. In the 1940s, Heuer began shifting their focus, they started developing their line of wrist watches and they began to make chronographs for the German air force.

The upcoming year the company was showing off once again with the Solunar, the first watch with a tide indicator.
In 1963 the iconic model, Carrer chronograph was born. TAG Heuer closed the 1960s with one of its best and prodigious horological advancements. The company had been working on a top-secret effort called the Project 99 discreetly in tandem with other high-end manufacturers like Dubois-Depraz, Breitling and Buren. The companies unanimously produced the first ever self-winding chronograph movement, named the Chronomatic. The chronomatic was used in three wrist chronograph models, the brand new Monaco, the Carrera, and the Autavia.
The 1980s were not an easy decade for the company. In 1985, group known as the Techniques d’Avant Garde bought the business thus forming the brand name we know today as TAG Heuer. Techniques d’Avant Garde maintained the name Heuer and continued upholding Heuer`s original values. TAG Heuer started the 1990s with a bang as it became the official timekeeper for Formula 1 racing in 1992. This was just another major stride in their longstanding relationship with automobile community.
