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.

HANDS-ON: A flash on the wrist – the carbon and gold TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 Carbon

TAG Heuer has never been afraid of trying new things, and the new Carbon collection is proof. To date, it consists of three popular models that have been given a carbon makeover: the Monaco, the Aquaracer and the Carrera. Earlier this week, we showed you the stealthier Carbon Carrera, but today we’re going to make a quick trip to shine town, with the carbon and rose gold model. Now, funnily enough, thanks to the liberal lashings of gold on the dial, crown and lugs, the carbon inclusions on this watch are quite understated, with only the bezel being made of the light and interesting carbon material. Add to this the fact that the case middle is made from steel given a black PVD treatment, and a rubber strap is attached to the spring bars, and you’ve got a watch that has quite a lot going on. But you know what, it works pretty well, especially if aggressively modern takes on two-tone floats your boat. In addition to the obvious aesthetic elements, there are two things worth noting about this Carrera. First of all, this is the 43mm version, which makes a big on-the-wrist difference compared to the 45mm version you… Read More

HANDS-ON: The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Carbon

I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for the Aquaracer. To my mind, it’s something of an unsung hero in TAG Heuer’s chronograph-heavy line-up. But the modern diver looks the business and, in a water-loving country like Australia, makes sense. It’s also quite a youthful feeling watch, which makes a nice changeup from the current litany of heritage-inspired offerings. And while the Aquaracer has never been particularly colour-averse, it’s somewhat ironic that this stealthy, blacked-out option is all about the colour. It’s offered in three variants, with blue, rose gold or yellow detailing, and today we’re having a look at this not-so-mellow yellow fellow. Fundamentally, it’s a watch that’s pretty familiar: 41mm across, with a case made from lightweight titanium coated with a black PVD, and fitted onto a lovely sailcloth-style nylon strap. The high-carbon content comes into play on the bezel and the dial. That distinctive shaped bezel has a carbon fibre bezel insert, replete with subtle whirls and swirls. The dial bears a similar pattern of carbon fibre-like flecks, but, interestingly, the dial isn’t actually made from carbon fibre, but rather rendered in an ersatz carbon fibre pattern, which still looks cool, especially with the grey… Read More

VIDEO: Altered Carbon – TAG Heuer’s Carrera Heuer 02 Carbon

The blacked-out Carbon capsule collection takes some sporty TAG Heuer staples and remixes them with carbon, in its various forms — there’s the Bamford Monaco, the colour-popping Aquaracer, and this guy, the Carrera Heuer 02 Carbon. Now, the familiar case on this Carrera isn’t all carbon; only the lugs and bezel are made from the lightweight, high-tech composite, more than enough to give the look (and the feel) of the material, while the central case elements are made from more conventional steel (albeit blacked-out). The other nifty thing about this watch is the Heuer 02 movement, which is a thoroughly modern model of a modern integrated chronograph. All told, the carbon additions to this boutique-only edition make for an interesting, and attractive, package.

LIST: Which do you choose? 8 awesome TAG Heuer Autavias

If, like me, indecisiveness is your middle name, choosing your next watch can be hard. That may seem like nothing more than a #firstworldproblem to the uninitiated, but to me, I prefer to think of it as a rewarding methodical process, a “journey to better beginnings” if you will. Let’s face it, though, sometimes it’s just too damn hard. It’s a journey that friend of Time+Tide, Anthony Do, knows all too well. An avid photographer and self-confessed watchnerd, the struggle is real for Anthony as he goes to and fro over the pros and cons of which of TAG Heuer’s astounding Autavia re-releases is for him. Well, we’re here for you, Anthony – even if it’s just to tempt you and make it that little bit harder for you to decide. I’ve compiled a list of every reimagination of the awesome Heuer-02 Autavia I could find. First up, where did it all begin? My watch journey started with a TAG Heuer Carrera Chrono, gifted to me by my now wife for our engagement about a decade ago. Since then, many watches have come and left my collection. In fact, my friends think of me as a ‘serial watch flipper’, but I like… Read More

RECOMMENDED READING: Jean-Claude Biver looks back at TAG Heuer … and to the future

Jean-Claude Biver is one of the watch industry’s enduring forces — a charismatic leader who looms, larger than life, over much of the modern history of the Swiss watch industry. So, as you can imagine, it was big — and surprising — news when it was announced a few weeks ago that Mr Biver would be stepping back from his day-to-day responsibilities as President of the LVMH Watch Division (and TAG Heuer CEO) in favour of a new role: Chairman of LVMH Watchmaking Division. What exactly this somewhat ambiguous new title means is the big question. And luckily it’s a question David Chalmers, the man behind Calibre 11, asked in his interview with Jean-Claude Biver, which sees the man looking back at his four-year history in the top seat, as well as to the future. It’s well worth a read, but here’s what Mr Biver thinks is the highlight of his career at TAG Heuer: “I think it was the launch and presentation of the first Swiss-made Connected watch. This I will remember for all my life. It was huge. The buzz we created when we launched the Connected watch in New York was just enormous. We had millions of… Read More

HANDS-ON: An extra dose of speed – the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 01 Aston Martin Special Edition

At the March 2018 Geneva Motor Show, TAG Heuer announced a new partnership with Aston Martin. Being named as the “Official Partner, Official Watch Partner, and Official Connected Watch Partner” of both the British car manufacturer and its racing teams (Quick fun fact! – Aston Martin are the title sponsors of the Red Bull Racing Formula 1 team, who also happen to run engines that are badged TAG Heuer). And to celebrate the partnership, the motorsport-loving brand released a pair of new chronographs, including this unique take on the contemporary Carrera Heuer 01. And that’s where it all begins, with a modular stainless-steel 45mm case that’s water resistant to 100 metres and holds inside it an in-house chronograph movement – the Heuer 01. However, things quickly speed around the hairpin when you look a little closer. The dial now features a semi-skeletonised hexagonal pattern that evokes the aggressive look of the front grill of the latest Aston Martin Vantage. Newly sharpened race lines trace its mid-case for an extra dose of speed, and a set of redesigned lugs take inspiration from the high-tempo bodywork of the Vantage. All subtle hints that not only add even more modern and sporty appeal… Read More
