If you want a watch that offers that perfect balance between luxury and rugged outdoors ‘Man of Action’ appeal, you don’t need to look further than the TAG Heuer brand. With over 150 years of Swiss watchmaking excellence and impeccable craftsmanship under its belt, TAG Heuer is one brand that has become almost synonymous with high quality outdoor rugged watches which look just as awesome in a corporate boardroom as scaling mountain ranges. This dual appeal makes TAG Heuer, among the many other Swiss luxury watch labels on the market today, stand out from the crowd. Sure, other brands might put out luxury sports watch with the obligatory timer, dual dials, and other features you’d expect from a sporty luxury watch. But there would be something missing. Maybe it is ‘believability’ or technology or just raw experience in manufacturing high quality luxury sports watches. Some TAG fans would say that what is missing from these other labels’ sports luxury watches is the brand that truly epitomizes an active yet luxurious lifestyle TAG Heuer.

Movement Type: Swiss Automatic
What separates a truly ‘luxury’ or high end watch from other types of watches? The movement, of course. Automatic movements are not cheap to create. Also, they aren’t built or undertaken lightly.
