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.

INTRODUCING: Altered carbon – the TAG Heuer Aquaracer 300M Carbon Collection

Welcome to the land of tomorrow! No, you haven’t just stumbled out of a cryogenic chamber, à la Futurama. TAG Heuer have just unveiled the most modern version yet of their decisive dive watch, the Aquaracer 300M, sporting a brand-new carbon costume, and available in three different colourways. Starting today, each carbon-based model will be available exclusively through TAG Heuer boutiques and online around the globe. Blacked-out with a PVD coating, each version features a 41mm Grade 5 titanium case, and is then topped by a unidirectional rotating bezel that’s been crafted by a random injection of carbon fibres into a resin pressed at high temperatures. This produces a marbling black and grey effect that means no two Aquaracers are the same. As with previous versions, cases are rated to 300 metres of water resistance, and inside is where you’ll find a familiar automatic Calibre 5 movement. Separating the three models are highlights of blue, yellow, or rose gold, which can be seen on their black nylon straps, as well as on the minute markers, hands, polished logo, and text of their carbon-look dials. Similar in style to this year’s other carbon crowd-puller, the TAG Heuer Monaco Bamford – which… Read More

WATCHSPOTTING: Chris Hemsworth schools the internet on how to casually wear a simple gold watch

We here at Time+Tide are particularly proud of Australian actor Chris Hemsworth … all right, we man-crush hard on the big fella. And not just because of his ruggedly handsome good looks, which give us regular Aussie men a good name around the world, but because the dude just gets how to wear watches. In GQ’s latest episode of YouTube series “Actually Me”, the Hollywood star goes not-so-deep undercover, creating real accounts for websites Quora, Twitter and IMDB, amongst a few others. And answering questions while flexing his Aussie-bred brand of humour. What captured our attention, though, wasn’t the fact that Thor would (and has) beat Captain America. in an arm wrestle, but, rather, the shimmer of gold that flashed on Hemsworth’s wrist – a 2015-released TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 7 Glassbox in 18k gold. Considering he’s a proud TAG Heuer ambassador, it wasn’t so surprising. But wearing a dark-coloured sweater with his sleeves rolled up and subtle tats on show … never has a gold watch looked so good.

HANDS-ON: The TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 5 Day-Date

It’s easy to think of the Carrera as purely a collection of chronographs, as that complication is where its roots and, indeed, heart lies. But for a long time the Carrera has been about more than just sports timers. It’s evolved into something more, a shorthand for sports pedigree and precision. This is the spirit with which the Carrera Calibre 5 Day-Date shines. The Carrera look is still there, of course, notably in the 41mm steel case, with those proud lugs and polished bezel. But the heritage is there in the dial — the simple baton markers and matchstick hands aren’t too far off those of the earliest Carreras. What’s new, though, is the day-date apertures: large, legible and neatly framed. Honestly, I really like this sort of execution of dates. They cop a lot of flak when they’re done in a haphazard, last-minute manner, but that is most definitely not the situation here, where the supremely practical calendar info is king, standing out from the matt black dial in a good way. This Carrera is a classical beauty, and the day-date doesn’t detract in the slightest. It’s also a watch built for the everyday. It feels comfortable and solid on the… Read More

HANDS-ON: The TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 in black ceramic – 55 years on and still going strong

They say your 50s are the new 30s. I’m not sure who ‘they’ are, and why exactly they say that. But just Google “celebrities in their 50s” and you’ll see that maybe they are on to something (Halle Berry and Tom Cruise, amirite?). Well, this year marks 55 years of the TAG Heuer Carrera, and the motorsport-inspired collection is looking good. Never before has it been more diverse or all-encompassing, featuring everything from sporty three-handers to GMTs, tourbillons, and, of course, chronographs. The Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 is TAG Heuer’s modern take on their original racing chronograph. And this version really lives up to the Swiss brand’s Techniques d’Avant Garde (TAG) label, taking things to the next level, with its blacked-out ceramic case. That’s right, this is no PVD coating. Instead, this Carrera Heuer 01’s modular 45mm case – including its tachymeter marked bezel, and sharp-edged lugs – is crafted in matt black ceramic, providing a stealthy edge to the bold collection that has already proven to be a favourite amongst the sporty offerings of the TAG Heuer catalogue. Ceramic also means that this Carrera is lightweight and virtually scratchproof. Pair that with a water resistance of 100 metres, and… Read More

IN-DEPTH: Colour comes to play with the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Chronograph

The story in a second: Classic Carrera. More colour. If you spend more than a few minutes in the sometimes crazy world of watches, it’s easy to lose perspective. You can very quickly get caught up in the hullabaloo of new this, in-house that, and proprietary the other. But while all that stuff is cool and sometimes really matters, at the end of the day it’s a watch on your wrist with a job to do. And that job is telling the time and looking good. I think this particular model excels at this job, which is why I chose it as one of my 10 favourite Baselworld 2018 releases. I made that decision in the thick of the fair, but you know what, after a few months reflection, I think it holds up. The dial The dial is where the party is at. The matt mid-blue matches perfectly with the fixed ceramic tachy bezel (love the choice to use ceramic BTW), and is freshened up even more thanks to the white, red and orange at play. The contrasting white is great, and adds an instant retro flavour. I particularly like the break afforded by the white inner flange, which… Read More
