Watch lovers and especially collectors of luxury pre-owned watches fall into two broad categories. They either stay loyal to one brand or they like to diversify their collection, depending on their preferences and style, among other factors.
Where do TAG Heuer watches fit in?
Generally speaking, a TAG Heuer men’s watch would be a welcome addition to a diversified collection of fine watches. Since high-end watches tend to trade at higher price ranges , TAG Heuer is a good choice for those who want to own a widely popular luxury watch which is somewhat more affordably priced.
TAG Heuer can be a good first choice for a first-time high-end watch purchase, especially with the younger, hipper crowd. The brand is known for its sports appeal and marketing campaigns featuring celebrities, which makes it almost universally relatable.
Here’s the breakdown of the most important things to know about some of the most memorable TAG Heuer men’s watches.
TAG Heuer watches for first-time buyers
On the subject of the most popular TAG Heuer watches, the Aquaracer is by far the most sought-after. It combines a sporty design with professional dive watch features. It can descend down to 1,000 feet below the surface of the sea, a quality that appeals to even the fiercest divers. Still, it’s quite reasonably priced, which makes it a smart first-time buyer choice.
Formula 1 Calibre 16 Chronograph came as a surprise version of the TAG Heuer Formula 1. With 44 mm in diameter, Formula 1 Calibre 16 Chronograph has a larger case than its Formula 1 predecessor. The design combines the modern look with retro, which is what attracts most TAG Heuer enthusiasts, and not only the first-time buyers.
Link Calibre 16 is an elegant sports watch with a distinctive combination of TAG Heuer’s signature chronograph look and a modern link bracelet. The watch has the automatic-winding mechanical movement and boasts a 100-meter water resistance provided by the screw-down crown with double gaskets. Many feel that the Link Calibre 16 gives outstanding value for the money.
Carrera and Monaco: TAG Heuer’s fiercest
If any TAG Heuer collection can be attributed with timeless endurance, it’s definitely Carrera. Originally launched in 1963, this stylish timepiece was designed by none other than TAG Heuer’s chief designer Jack Heuer. The legendary Mexican Carrera Panamericana Race served as inspiration for the name of this popular TAG Heuer timepiece. What is thought to be the most dangerous race in the world led Jack to envision a watch with an easy-to-read dial and shock-resistant, waterproof case that would suit the needs of the fiercest of motorists. TAG Heuer Carrera was the result.
As for the Monaco series, there’s hardly a TAG Heuer collection more associated with motor racing than Monaco. The bold timepiece exploded in popularity in 1970 when Steve McQueen sported one in his hit movie Le Mans. TAG Heuer watchmakers were daring in making this timepiece, which makes it an interesting addition to any collection of pre-owned luxury watches.
Limited edition TAG Heuer men’s watches
Passionate collectors of high-end watches love TAG Heuer because of its much-coveted limited edition pieces such as TAG Heuer Carrera Space X. Many don’t know that TAG Heuer was the first Swiss watch brand to ‘’go to space.’’ Namely, astronaut John Glenn wore a TAG Heuer wristwatch on the triple orbit of the Earth in 1962.
