TAG Heuer is one of the world’s most famous watch brands, which has strong innovative history, having profound relationship with chronographs and car racing. It has achieved a breakthrough development in mechanical chronographs, releasing cheap Tourbillon models and smart watches. Here I will introduce some knowledge of this popular fake watches.
1, Sport gene
Edouard Heuer established the Heuer Watch Company in 1860. The first workshop was located in St-Imier of Switzerland, which was famous with its high quality craftsmanship and high precision.In 1933, the brand released the Autavia, which was the first dashboard of the racing car. In 1985, Heuer was purchased by TAG. LVMH purchased the TAG Heuer in 1999.
2, Simplified chronograph
In the days of good engineering dealing with marketing issues, movement designers sought to develop movements with fewer moving parts to make them more reliable and easier to repair. In 1887, Edouard Heuer developed a swinging pinion and patented it, simplifying the chronograph. Currently, major movement manufacturers are still using this structure.
3, The first Swiss space watch
Astronaut John Glenn entered the Friendship 7 capsule with a TAG Heuer stopwatch on his wrist. Referring to the mechanical watch entering the space, what you consider must not be Heuer. Instead, it must be the famous Omega Speedmaster. In fact, Heuer was the first Swiss watch entering the space. Now, this precious imitation Heuer was preserved in the National Air and Space Museum of Washington DC.
