TAG Heuer is a Swiss manufacturer that besides making glasses and cell phones, also makes some of the best luxury watches in the world. Ever since 1860, when the company was founded, the main goal behind the TAG Heuer name was to produce the most accurate timepieces and change the way we measure time. This lead to the invention of the first stopwatch with a precision of one hundredth of a second which provided a definite connection with the world of sports; TAG Heuer was the official timekeeper for the Olympic Games in 1920.
With such a talent and desire for perfection, TAG Heuer quickly became the leading sports watch manufacturer and it was only normal for them to get into the fastest sport available, F1 racing.

TAG Heuer is the official sponsor for the McLaren Team ever since 1990 with models made after the stars behind the wheel.
Although precision is what made them perfect for the F1, the bold style used to cover that precision is also remarkable and TAG Heuer watches are also popular for the status symbol that they represent. The elegance of these watches combined with the perfect craftsmanship makes them desirable around the world and the choice of many celebrities such as Brad Pitt, Joe Manganiello, Tiger Woods, Maria Sharapova and also Barack Obama.
