I am known amongst my circle of friends as “the watch guy”. Unsurprisingly, I am frequently asked for suggestions or opinions on certain pieces. In the process of helping them out, I began to realise that I have been following a set of subconscious principles for myself when it comes to the purchase of any watch; one that I had never put into words before. Over the past few months, I have tried to collect these thoughts and flesh them out. This article is my attempt at coalescing these principles into something that is helpful, or at the very least coherent.
TAG Heuer presents a replica inspired by the glorious ‘Carrera’ gold 18 carat, owned by Ronnie Peterson.
The first reedition is a unique piece in 18 carat gold, identical to the one worn by the Swedish pilot. TAG Heuer is proud to present a unique reedition of the famous so called ‘Carrera Ronnie Peterson’.
This replica is offered on behalf of TAG Heuer and the proceedings of the sale will go to the Ronnie Peterson foundation, honoring his legacy and supporting talents in motor sport.
The reedition will be sold at Bonhams auction ‘Les Grandes Marques à Monaco’ Friday, May 11th in Monaco.
We just updated the watch database with TAG Heuer’s current collection of about 460 references.
We know TAG Heuer for their sporty collections around motor sports and aquatics. This sporty appeal and the attractive price range make the watches a popular choice for the younger generation.
TAG Heuer also combines the art of watchmaking with the Smartwatches of the Connected collection. Although the watches still stand pretty much side by side, it will be interesting to see how these separate segments develop and possibly start to intersect more and more in the future.
And finally, if you are tired of round watches, look no further. TAG Heuers Monaco watches offer a classic – some say iconic – square look.
TAG Heuer & Gulf Oil International signed a partnership!
The global partnership with Gulf Oil International will lead to the development of new activities and new watch-editions.
The first one ist the TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf which was presented on the occasion of the signing of the global partnership.
With the immediately recognisable famous blue and orange stripes, Gulf has been a well-known player in the automotive industry for over 115 years. It was the first company to drill for oil below the sea, and in 1913, became the first in the world to open a petrol station.
TAG Heuer and Gulf have crossed paths already several times, but the most notable was in 1971, in the film “Le Mans”, when Steve McQueen wore a Heuer Monaco on his wrist while driving a Porsche 917 that featured the Gulf logo…
It is the first time that a manufacturer of Swiss mechanical calibres combines an in-house developed and manufactured automatic calibre with an also in-house developed, in-house produced and in-house assembled electronic part that enables the smart functions of the so called Hybrid Manufacture watch.

The Hybrid Manufacture watch will be sold for only 3250 & 3350 Euro (including 20 % VAT)!
