About Tag Heuer
TAG Heuer traces its roots to the small Swiss village of St-Imier where, in 1860, a watchmaker named Edouard Heuer opened his first shop. His vision was to create remarkable timepieces that pushed the envelope of innovation and precision. The company's reputation grew, and Heuer's first patent for a chronograph mechanism in 1882 was followed by a long list of achievements: the first stopwatch accurate to 1/100 of a second, the first dashboard stopwatch for race cars, the first miniature electronic timekeeping device accurate to 1/1000th of a second, and the first automatic movement with a microrotor, to name just a few.

Over the years, Heuer's reputation for gold-standard precision earned the company the privilege of providing official timing services for a number of world-class competitive sporting events, including the Olympic Games, the FIS Ski World Cup, and the FIA Formula 1 World Championships. To this day, TAG Heuer maintains a close association with the world of competitive sports and enjoys a devoted following among sports celebrities and enthusiasts. In 1985, Heuer joined the TAG (Techniques D'Avant-Garde) group, and the TAG Heuer name and logo were created. Now one of the most recognized and sought-after watch brands in the world, TAG Heuer continues its reputation of innovative design and technological excellence, creating prestigious timepieces that are always at the cutting edge of precision, reliability and style.

Amazon customer review of the product: "I had been deciding between a Formula 1 or a Tissot (One Touch) for a few weeks. When I saw this color scheme on the Tag I had to go for it. The all black play of the strap, dial, bezel, and case was what sold me. It's a bit surprising they don't offer more color schemes on the Formula 1 with the black titanium carbide case. After seeing it, the stainless steel cases on the Formula 1 with the rubber strap seemed a bit odd. I've been enjoying this watch for about 6 months now. A bit too sporty and substantial (almost 15mm thick) for semi-formal wear. An added plus, I just discovered on an exercise, is that the darker your environment the brighter the lume, (maybe flourescent lights charge it more[?]). The secondary loop on the strap has loosened a bit now though, which is my only criticism."

So an impressive watch with a nice stylish display and hi tech efficient display of the time. A good purchase for anyone.
