Few watches resonate with Australians quite as much as those made by TAG Heuer. Why? Perhaps it’s their rich automotive heritage, the legendary Calibre 11 chronograph or maybe just the masculine good looks of the watches. Regardless of the reason, Time+Tide is proud to be the Australian home of TAG Heuer online.

TAG Heuer's triple threat of 2019

3 best TAG Heuers 2019

It's safe to say that 2019 was a good year for TAG Heuer, with the Swiss watchmaker celebrating 50 years of their iconically square Monaco wristwatch with four striking limited editions. It wasn't just about the Monaco, however, as TAG also brought out some great new additions to their storied Carrera line-up as well as some elegant new ladies watches. We'd like to mention all the excellent new timepieces that were unveiled last year, but that would take quite some time. So, instead, here are our three favourite TAG Heuers of 2019: TAG HEUER MONACO 1989-1999 The third Monaco released to celebrate the model's 50th anniversary honours the 1990s. A concrete-inspired dial (referencing the explosion of street culture during that decade) is brought to life by flashes of blue and red. The sub-dials, which had taken a voluptuous turn for the 1980s special edition, return to their boxier shape, but retain rounded corners. While significantly different from the original, and far grittier in appearance, this edition really brings the spirit of the 1969 right up to date.

VIDEO: Is this the most important TAG Heuer Monaco?

TAG Heuer Monaco Heuer 02

It's been a big year for the TAG Heuer Monaco as it celebrated 50 years of production from when it was first released in 1969. The brand has released a number of limited editions this year in celebration; however, they arguably saved the most important release till last with the new TAG Heuer Monaco Heuer 02. The reason it is so significant lies beneath the dial, with the newly added Caliber 02 offering the first ever Monaco with an in-house movement. The TAG Heuer Monaco Heuer 02 uses the same case dimensions as other references from the Monaco family at 39mm, but includes a number of details that make it a genuinely good-looking watch. The sunray brushed dial is a rich royal blue that contrasts well with the crisp white sub-dials, and the sapphire crystal, which covers the dial, sits prominently on the case and is ever so slightly curved across a lateral axis. The new TAG Heuer Monaco Heuer 02 is not limited in production numbers, and is currently available in boutiques. Made in partnership with TAG Heuer. However, the opinions expressed in this article are our own in accordance with our Editorial Policy.

3 reasons why the TAG Heuer Monaco V4 Platinum is still amazing

Much as it pains me to admit it, these days, haute horology is usually reserved for the rarified and uber-expensive micro-brands of the Swiss watchmaking world. It's not that the heavyweights of the industry have completely given up on the idea of innovation – far from it – but it does seem as though there's been a shift, that priorities have changed. A timepiece's movement was once the perennial final frontier for the majority of the watchmaking industry. In fact, throughout the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries there were countless new and innovative movements being spawned on a regular basis. However, now it feels as though most of the mainstays are largely content with the fairly antiquated fundamentals of movements, and are instead focusing on perfecting them, rather than creating completely new concepts – evolution over revolution. That's why the TAG Heuer Monaco V4 was such a shock to the industry's collective system when it was first unveiled in 2004. The Swiss marque again stunned everyone when in 2009 they unveiled the limited edition Monaco V4 in Platinum. And here are three reasons why it still conjures astonishment and awe in the horological fraternity: The Calibre V movement Designed to… Read More

We take a look at 5 seriously cool vintage TAG Heuer Autavias

TAG Heuer Autavia

One of the best things about TAG Heuer is the Swiss marque's remarkable history with motorsport — few other watchmakers, if any, have such a rich back catalogue of timekeeping devices purpose-built for the ultimate expression of man vs machine. And while many will immediately associate the angular Monaco as the most iconic wristwatch associated with motor racing, in fact, the real "racebred" timepiece that TAG made was the Autavia. An elision of the words "automotive" and "aviation", TAG produced Autavia timekeeping devices from as early as the 1930s, and since then, the namesake and the pursuits of myriad forms of motorsport have never been far apart. Rather luckily, not too long ago, TAG Heuer was generous enough to let us have a look at some of their most storied and fabled Autavias, and our photog and all-round legend, Jason Reekie, shot some amazing photos. Heuer Autavia Dashboard Timer Signed Abercrombie & Fitch Co. While it would now merely serve ornamental purposes if it were still to be found affixed to the dash of an automobile, back in the day, these sorts of dashboard timing instruments were … well, instrumental in motorsport. This gorgeous example was originally sold through American retailer… Read More

HANDS-ON: TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre Heuer 02

Tag Heuer Monaco Calibre Heuer 02

Of the hundreds of thousands of wristwatches that have been created over the last century, how many are truly iconic? The answer: honestly, not many … not many at all. Candidly, there are probably fewer than 50 timepieces of the last 100 years that can claim to have had an impact on the zeitgeist of the horological industry. TAG Heuer's Monaco is one of those watches – it captured a time and place in history so resolutely (think Steve McQueen and Le Mans) that it continues to be lauded to this day. However, this icon is in the midst of a pivotal transition. You see, it's the Monaco's 50 birthday this year, and just like you and I will experience a mid-life crisis, it too is going through some serious changes. It hasn't gone out and bought itself a Porsche and eloped with its secretary for pastures new, but it has acquired something shiny and expensive, and it's causing quite the stir. Housed inside its familiar square case that we all know and love, the Monaco is, for the first time since 1969, being powered by an in-house movement, the Calibre 02. First released in TAG's storied Autavia back in… Read More

RECOMMENDED READING: Steve McQueen and the watches he wore

Steve McQueen watches

Here's a question for you: Who is the greatest male style icon of the 20th century? Is it Paul Newman? No. Is it Elvis Presley? Absolutely not. Is it James Dean? No, but getting closer. OK, as the title rather obviously suggests, the greatest male style icon of the 20th century was, by some margin, Steve McQueen. Here was a man who set the tone for what was considered cool in just about every facet of what men cared about, whether it be what cars to drive, what clothes to wear and, most importantly, what watches to have attached to your wrist. In fact, McQueen's influence was such that, to this day, the Rolex Explorer II ref. 1655 is known as the "Steve McQueen Explorer". Now, McQueen had quite a few timepieces in his own personal collection besides the 1655, but the prolific actor also wore some iconic timepieces on the silver screen from watchmakers like Heuer, Rolex and Jaeger-LeCoultre. Rather luckily for us, Jared Paul Stern, writing for Maxim magazine, has studied some of McQueen's most iconic roles to see what timepieces he wore. Whether you're a fan of McQueen's style, or just want to know what watch he… Read More
