12 Of The Best TAG Heuer Watches To Buy Right Now



TAG Heuer was established by Edouard Heuer when he was just 20 years old and later passed the company on to his son, Charles Augustine. At first, he produced pocket watches made of silver but soon developed new and important instruments to record time of trips and even helped doctors to time patients’ heart rate. 

The company invented the oscillating pinion which is still popular with many watchmakers. The “time of trip” stopwatch was incorporated into the instrument panels of cars and planes from 1911.  

The Heuer brand has continued to be a big player in the advancement of horology and has created chronographs that can measure fractions of seconds, including the Mikrotimer Flying 1000 (1/1000th of a second) and the Mikrogirder (1/10000th of a second).

With such significant innovations to watches, the brand has earned its place in the luxury watch market.  As such, it’s well worth considering one of the following notable watches as a statement to wear as well as a good investment.  Here are some of the best TAG Heuer watches to consider buying right now. 


1) Carrera Plasma Tourbillon Nanograph (Reference XCBN5A90.FC8315)

If you want to own a piece of the future, right now, consider this remarkable new watch. This innovative timepiece, introduced at the 2022 Watches and Wonders show, uses Diamant d’Avant-garde technology.

This involves growing diamonds in a lab, using a laser to shape them and then covering the watch face in this “polycrystalline” diamond material. As if that isn’t enough, A 2.5-carat lab-grown diamond is used as the crown.  

The case is large at 44mm and made of sandblasted anodized aluminium.  The movement is the Heuer 02 Tourbillon Nanograph and uses a carbon hairspring which provides incredible anti-magnetism and shock resistance. 

It also has enhanced stability whatever temperature extremes it may be exposed to.  It has a stylish black leather strap with a strong black titanium clasp. 

- You cannot buy a TAG Heuer Carrera Plasma Tourbillon Nanograph Watch at retail as of May 2024.


2) TAG Heuer Formula 1 Red Bull Racing (Reference CAZ101AL FT8052)

This eye-catching, sporty little number is a collaboration between TAG Heuer and Red Bull.  The calibre is Quartz Chronograph. 

The watch case is 43mm fine brushed/polished steel with a fixed bezel.  The blue face has white rhodium-plated Arabic numbers, as do the hour and minute hands.  The second hand is yellow.  Below the 12 sits the brand name with “Formula 1” above.

There are 3 sub-dials which display seconds, 30 minutes and the date.  The back of the watch case is engraved with the chequered pattern associated with racing and the words “Red Bull Racing” and “TAG Heuer”. 

In keeping with the F1 theme the rubber strap is textured with a pattern of ribs and grooves that reflect the tread of a car tire. (Purists will note that F1 cars only use tires with tread in wet weather, otherwise they are completely smooth). 

The pin buckle is fine brushed steel. 

- You can buy a TAG Heuer Formula 1 at retail for £1,950 as of May 2024. 

3) Monaco Automatic Chronograph (Reference CBL2113.BA0644)

TAG Heuer first introduced the Monaco in 1969 in both automatic and manual versions with watch faces in blue, grey and black.  

It was phased out in less than ten years but came back in 1997 as reference CS2110.  The Monaco is now more popular than it ever was and is worth considering including in your collection.

The latest Monaco Calibre Heuer O2 was introduced in 2019 using the new Calibre Heuer O2.  Although it is very similar, the original watch strap was leather while the new version has a stainless steel bracelet. 

 This watch stands out for having a square stainless steel case with an exhibition back.  The dial is sunray brushed black  with white minute and hour Super-LumiNova® coated hands, as well as a red second hand.

Water resistant to 100 metres, it has an impressive power reserve of 80 hours.  

Two sub-dials give you a 30 minute counter on the left of the watch face and a 60 second counter on the right.  Just above the 6 is the date counter. 

- You can buy a TAG Heuer Monaco at retail for £6,900 as of May 2024.


4) The Aquaracer Bamford Professional 300 Limited Edition collaboration


This limited edition Aquaracer could be one of the best investments right now.  It has a black dial which was co-designed with the Bamford Watch Department.

Best Place To Buy A Luxury Watch  Best Place To Sell A Luxury Watch

The 43mm case is ultra light-weight and 12-sided.  The 60-minute scale, unidirectional bezel and the bracelet are in super-resilient grade 2 titanium.

It has the limited edition number engraved on the case back in the form of “one of 844” - a nod to TAG Heuer’s first dive watch reference 844 released in 1978. 

With only 844 produced, this is likely to make this a good investment - assuming you can find one. 

The date is above the 6 marker and has a cyclops for easy reading.  There is a red 24-hour scale marked out just below each hour marker, which again is a nod to the original 844.  It has a power reserve of 38 hours.  

The 3, 12 and 9 hour markers are batons, the 6 marker is a much smaller one to allow for the date window.  All the other hour markers are dots. 

Of interest to divers, this watch is waterproof to 300 metres and luminous in the darkness if you’re underwater (or just in the dark).

Coated with Super-LumiNova®, the markings on the bezel glow blue along with the minute and second hands but the hour hand and indices glow blue, making it much easier to read the time.  

- You can buy a TAG Heuer Aquaracer x Bamford at retail for £3,750 as of May 2024.


5) Autavia 60th Anniversary Flyback Chronograph (Reference CBE511C.FC8280)

The Autavia was first introduced in 1962 and became synonymous with keeping time for adventures in racing and flying.

This 60th anniversary flyback chronograph retains all the characteristics of the original but now uses the Calibre Heuer O2.

6) TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing

Like Ali and Frazier, two legends have collided to build one of the hottest things since TikTok.

Best Place To Buy A Luxury Watch  Best Place To Sell A Luxury Watch

TAG Heuer and Porsche have been shaking hands since February 2021, crafting precision in both the engines fired up by Porsche and the impressive movements created by TAG Heuer. 

In a daring orange, synonymous with previous F1 models, TAG Heuer and Porsche add extra fire to the sports watch industry, marking their 60th anniversary of the TAG Heuer Carrera.

New for 2023, the bright intensity of the orange is inspired by the sparks produced by Porsche’s mean-machines racing over asphalt. 

The black tarmac textures such as the chronographs black diamond like carbon case provides a canvas for the orange to take control of the horological wheel.

If you buy a TAG Heuer like the Carrera and Porsche Racing Chronograph, it offers first rate scratch resistance as the coating is stronger than steel and enjoys a unique matt finish.

In case just being associated with Porsche wasn't enough for you racing geeks, the sapphire glass caseback allows a direct view to the chronograph's oscillating weight, resembling a Porsche steering wheel.

On the bezel, the word ‘Porsche’ is etched in the same fiery orange. 

Furthermore, the words ‘Porsche’ and ‘TAG Heuer’ are proudly adorned on the case back.

The same colour scheme of black and orange runs through the back of the model, giving the impression of a white hot engine pulsating beats through the dark stillness of the exterior. 

The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing utilises its predecessor's movement in the TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph.

Powered by the in house calibre Heuer 02, the movement allows for exceptional chronometric performance and a solid 80 hour power reserve.

We feel this all encompassing racing watch is at the peak of its game compared to its brother, The TAG Heuer Carrera Plasma.

Even the smallest intricacies are designed to be as explosive as Mount Etna. The lacquer on the crown is tinged with orange alongside the graphic details found on the dial such as the azure counters and orange seconds hand.

If you buy a TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing, you are buying into the Swiss brand’s epic racing heritage while simultaneously wearing an awesome and affordable entry-level luxury watch. Congratulations!

The strap is nothing short of impressive as it features a calfskin strap with a sporty design. Constructed like the leather interior upholstery of a Porsche car, orange stitching is etched into the black canvas of the leather strap.

- Time to strap yourselves in watch fans as you can buy a TAG Heuer like this for £6,450 as of May 2024. 


7) TAG Heuer Monza Flyback Chronometer 

Even Kylian Mbappe would need a breather to keep up with this speed machine.

Best Place To Buy A Luxury Watch  Best Place To Sell A Luxury Watch

Released in 1976, the TAG Heuer Monza was a celebration of former F1 great Niki Lauda winning the world championship at Le Mans in 1975.

TAG Heuer’s deep connection with Ferrari resulted from their involvement in timing Formula 1 events and having their name on the side of Ferrari cars. 

Fast forward to the modern era and a new chapter has emerged for the Monza. Sporting a carbon case, a nod to the first model, the use of black PVD treatment is evident.

Measuring 42mm, this watch is both robust and sporty enough to wear, suiting a refined navy suit or a casual black jumper and brown brogues. 

The skeletonised dial is a joy to behold, showcasing the Calibre 02 in all its untamed glory. The crown is on the right hand side of the case, a far cry from the Niki Lauda model which is positioned on the left.

The two subdials are semi-transparent blue disks with red lacquered hands sitting harmoniously alongside blue Super-Luminova indices and a date.

The movement is the renowned COSC certified in-house calibre 02 holding a flyback function, allowing the wearer to reset the running chronograph and restart it effortlessly.

A fantastic feature for those looking to buy a TAG Heuer with some handy time measurement features. 

This means you could feasibly time a new event immediately after one had finished. Perfect for the time intensive circuits of racing or for the high flying businessman on the move.

If you decide to buy a watch like the TAG Heuer Monza, you are guaranteed top-notch precision and helpful functions through the Calibre 02. 

The colour on the TAG Heuer Monza Flyback Chronometer contrasts with the black case and dial. With a white numbered tachymetric scale, blue seconds hand and white hour and minute hands, the colours all work seamlessly.

This leads to a concoction of racing goodness for those motor freaks. It's therefore perfectly designed to suit those on the track or those running late to that high-powered meeting. 

- You can buy a TAG Heuer like this for the retail price of £12,000 as of May 2024. 


8) TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 1000 Superdiver

Every watch manufacturer needs a claim to fame. An accomplishment which is extremely hard to attain. Please enter our next fave, The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 1000 Superdiver.

Aquaracer Professional 1000 Superdiver - Source - TAG Heuer

Best Place To Buy A Luxury Watch  Best Place To Sell A Luxury Watch


With a staggering 1000 metres water resistance, the watch is built to endure the most challenging of conditions. Jetski, snorkel, waterski with it…ride a few waves. This beauty is built to endure most nautical challenges. 

The watch is actually built for saturation diving which is for folks who do construction and demolition work at depths up to around 1000 feet while living in pressurised environments. 

Measuring 45mm, the watch is slightly bulkier, so slimmer wrists beware. Composed of grade 5 titanium, the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 1000 Superdiver is fitted with a helium escape valve and crown protector. It's the perfect watch for those living on the edge, or those who simply don't want their watch to break any time soon. The case is fine-brushed and polished with a steel caseback as well as a titanium and ceramic turning bezel. 

The black sunray dial goes hand in hand with its own Super-LumiNova hands emitting excellent visibility. However, you don’t necessarily need to be a deep-sea explorer to buy a TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional.

The back of the watch pays homage to saturation diving by featuring the upper torso of a diver in his oversized helmet and diving gear. The words ‘Divers watch 1000m for Saturation Diving’ also links to the job role made for this particular timepiece. Don't fret watch fans, anyone can pick this piece up. 

Keeping with the theme of indestructibility rivalling the Incredible Hulk, the watch arrives in a custom protective case with orange details and backup light. Because we all need a backup light don't we! TAG Heuer really goes to town when it comes to this model. If you buy a TAG Heuer just for the case and light alone, this is certainly one of our picks if you are new to the watch game.

- The retail price of the Aquaracer Professional 1000 Superdiver is £5,650 as of May 2024.


9) TAG Heuer Carrera 02 160 Years Silver Limited Edition


By far the most unorthodox TAG Heuer in terms of colour scheme, the TAG Heuer Silver Limited Edition blends discreet minimalism with a good dose of rarity. Quite the opposite of the Black and Gold Carrera Chronograph released in 2022

Measuring 39mm, the TAG Heuer Carrera Montreal style watch is a 160th anniversary limited edition with three blue azurage counters and a fetching blue and cream dial. A domed sapphire crystal is as retro as a 1970’s Harley Davidson, evoking the same time period.

Best Place To Buy A Luxury Watch  Best Place To Sell A Luxury Watch


Made from steel, the solid case has a screw down sapphire caseback engraved with ‘one of 1000’. The watch is perfectly paired with a blue alligator strap, matching the colour scheme of the watch to great effect. 

The dial is very clean, using only minor touches of blue and red scale flange, yellow Super-Luminova treated hour and minute hands as well as an hour chronograph counter. This has been done to keep up with the nostalgic feel of the Montreal pieces from the 70s which is a nice aesthetic for those looking to buy a TAG Heuer with a bit of 70s fever. 

The original is not completely lost in this model. Applied indexes follow the direction of the rehaut and the dial is an opal white with small yellow touches to perfect the image. The oscillating weight has been altered in order to house an engraving stating that this model is an anniversary edition. 

This model is powered using the classic, in-house Heuer 02 movement and boasts a column wheel and clutch, symbolising the depth and exquisite quality that goes into the movements and timekeeping. 

Got the fever yet to buy a TAG Heuer?

You can bag the Carrera 02 for the retail price of £6,100 as of May 2024. 




The TAG Heuer Formula 1 X 500 was released in celebration of the long standing partnership with the Indie 500. 


TAG Heuer Formula 1 x Indy 500 - Source - TAG Heuer

Best Place To Buy A Luxury Watch  Best Place To Sell A Luxury Watch


The Indie 500 is part of the ‘Triple Crown’ which consists of the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix and the 24 Hours “Le Mans.” It would become inevitable that the highly racing inspired TAG Heuer would join the Indy 500 as its official timekeeper and scorer in 2004. They do love to get in their quick sharp!

As such, TAG Heuer has released 17 Indy 500 special edition watches since 2004. One of these is the TAG Heuer Formula 1 X Indy 500, released as a celebration of the partnership between TAG Heuer and the Indy 500. The black grained dial is somewhat unique in the TAG Heuer collection, providing a design as exclusive as an invite to the Oscars. The watch has a steel three rows bracelet which can be modified to fit over racing overalls due to the steel folding clasp with a double safety system featuring a pilot extension. 

If the watch is turned over, you will see a special engraving on its caseback. It references a unique Indy 500 pagoda which is printed at 6 o'clock. The watch is a beast, having a water resistance of 200m and is highly shock resistant. 

The watch houses a Swiss quartz calibre which offers almost perfect precision with a small variation of only a few seconds per month. Pretty good considering most watches lose 1 second per day. 

At 43mm, the stainless steel case is fine brushed polished and is fitted with the sporty aluminium tachymeter bezel. The black dial is striking and is wonderfully detailed with rhodium plated indexes, further enhancing the Super-LumiNova coated hour hands and minute hands, two chronograph subdials and a date window at 4 o'clock. 

This watch is perfect for those wanting to follow their racing dreams or look awesome walking down the street. Race on, Timelords!

- You can buy a TAG Heuer Indy 500 for £2,100 as of May 2024 at retail. 


11) TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300


The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 is a funky take on the Aquaracer collection.

Best Place To Buy A Luxury Watch  Best Place To Sell A Luxury Watch


The dial is a bold green which is further projected with a sunray brush finish. Green is currently on trend, with brands like Patek Philippe releasing models such as the 7130R-014 in Olive Green. Green can be a polarising colour but in this case, the dial is very well executed, as the dial can change in shade just by exposing it to light. 

The colour of the dial is further expanded upon by a ceramic green unidirectional bezel. The hour and minute hands are fitted in the classic Aquaracer style, which is completely unique to TAG Heuer only and shaded in white along with the indices. 

The watch is fitted with a central sweep seconds hand which is presented in a yellow dart shape, contrasting with the shade of the dial. TAG Heuer have mastered the details, coating the small details on the dial with luminescence, wherein the hour hand and indexes emit a green glow and the minute and sweep seconds produce a blue shade. 


The case fits the diving lifestyle perfectly. At 40mm, the watch is still incredibly light through refining the case and bracelet which offers comfort and removes any added weight. The bracelet is integrated to the watch and the lugs make the entire piece flow seamlessly. This Aquaracer is created out of titanium as opposed to its stainless steel counterparts. This means the watch isn't fine brushed and polished but instead is given a sandblasted finish. 

The Calibre 5 Automatic movement is consistently used throughout the Aquaracer 300’s heritage. The balance has a strong frequency of 28,800 VpH and is capable of running for 38h autonomously. 

Not quite the 2022 Rolex ref.126720 “Sprite Jubilee” but this model will no doubt garner comments from your work colleagues or friends on a night out. 

You can buy a TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 at retail for £3,750 as of May 2024. 


12) TAG Heuer Link Calibre 17


First released in 1987, the TAG Heuer Link was originally known as the TAG Heuer S/EL which is short for Sports Elegance. 

The Link was originally a big player in TAG Heuer’s collection but was soon overshadowed by other collections such as the Formula 1 collection. It has soon come back, firing out fashionable models away from the highly sporty designs it's known for like the Carrera. Measuring 41mm, the case blends a round and a cushion shape to create wonderful curved edges delivering an elegant aesthetic. 

The smooth lines mean that the Link is elegant and dressy, utilising small crown protectors to still reach 100m of water resistance but not ruin the classy design. It comfortably relates to the original as released in 1987 and has retained its youthful good looks as much as Kylie Minogue.

In particular, the bracelet is a staple of The TAG Heuer Link collection. Twin S-shaped links circle around the wrist, and its vertical brushed finish with its polished rounded edges are all designed to catch reflections and seamlessly create silhouettes. 

Just like the Links predecessor, the bracelet is integrated into the case allowing for a tapered fit. The bracelet is fine-brushed and polished giving a wonderful sheen and the folding clasp double security, does what it says on the tin.

The dial is fitted in a beautiful blue sunray-brushed finish. The logo is emblazoned below 12 o'clock with ‘TAG Heuer’ text, making the dial uncluttered allowing it to retain its seamlessness. The date at 3 o'clock with the baton-style hour markers and hands are rhodium plated and coated with Lume for excellent clarity. The dial keeps its sporty edge with 3 subdials for ¼ second, 30 minutes counter and 12 hour counter. 

The sapphire display caseback shows the Calibre 17 movement which has a 42 hour power reserve and a balance frequency of 28,800 VpH. 

- You can buy a TAG Heuer Link at retail for £5,150 as of May 2024.


Rest Of The Best TAG Heuer Watches To Buy In 2024


TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph

If we say the phrase “TAG Heuer Glassbox”, what do you think of? Well, if you are a keen horophile, chances are your eyes will sparkle like a freshly cleaned mirror at the idea of a fresh Glassbox themed timepiece being released! 

Source - TAG Heuer

Best Place To Buy A Luxury Watch  Best Place To Sell A Luxury Watch

The Glassbox was initially released in 2015 as a celebratory design of the classic plastic crystals from the old-school Carrera’s of the 1960s. The Carrera Chronograph is, aside from the Monaco, one of the best TAG Heuer watches around. For us, it’s a line that’s not been overlooked down the years. 

Need we remind you of Ryan Gosling who pulled off a vintage (and definitely a possible grail) watch, an 18K gold TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph from the Barbie movie in 2023? Enough of the past! It’s time to focus on the future.

And Watches and Wonders 2024 didn’t disappoint with a tantalising release in the form of a sumptuous Carrera Chronograph Glassbox. Dimensions remain the same, including a 39mm steel case that's thoroughly polished along the tops of the lugs, pushers and the crown, with brushed along the case sides and equally steel bracelet. 

Around 13.86mm thick, the models are not slender, but that's the price you pay for a stylish racing watch. This is definitely something you should look to onboard in your collection.

Save the red-carpet walks for a different novelty! The domed crystal offers optimal magnification by ensuring the entire dial is visibly enlarged, alongside the functional black tachymetric scale on the bezel. 

The oh so popular TAG Heuer dial comes in a refined grey shade that has a sunray finish to promote the three-dimensional hour markers with lume tips. The rectangular hands have a strip of lume through their centre that boasts legibility. 

The dial also comprises a dual chronograph sub-dial functionality at 3 and 9 o’clock. These relate to a 30-minute and 12 hour functionality respectively. Featuring an azuré background, the black counters contrast well with the silver dial, especially since they have neon red hands. 

We think TAG Heuer knows how to make the most of space. Therefore, at 6 o’clock is a very handy small seconds counter alongside an integrated date aperture. Inside the steely build is a TH20-00 calibre which offers a hardy 80 hour power reserve alongside a rapid beat of 28,800VpH. What’s not to like?

 - You can buy a TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph at retail for £6,100 as of May 2024.


TAG Heuer Carrera Date 

Batman’s sidekick may be known as the Boy Wonder. But what about trying on this three handed wonder for size?

What horophiles really love is being spoilt for choice. At Watches and Wonders 2024, TAG Heuer treated us to a triple whammy of Carrera Date releases, available in a range of materials from classic steel to two-tone models. 

Source - TAG Heuer

Best Place To Buy A Luxury Watch  Best Place To Sell A Luxury Watch

There are however a number of dimensions which remain consistent throughout all these watches. Given a diameter of around 36mm, the first difference comes in the choice of materials. Feeling like a throwback? Choose the solid steel with polished lugs, bezel and brushed bracelet. 

Want accessible luxury? Decide between two two-tone variants in rose gold and steel. By complimenting steel with the luxury metals, you are capable of owning a precious metal timepiece vastly under the retail value of a solid gold watch. 

For all the models, they differentiate between mother-of-pearl dials and precious metal dials. The rose gold version has a sun-ray finish which enhances the luxury of the material even further. 

This is available on one of the two-tone models. For the other two-tone model and steel piece, you can have an attractive mother-of-pearl dial which has a desirable porcelain style texture. More ornamental than wristwear? Not quite. Remember that these pieces can still competently take knocks from your everyday life!

The two-tone mother-of-pearl dial refuses to stop there. This comes with diamond hour markers and a diamond ring flange. This is in contrast to “standard” rose gold hour markers employed on the steel and other two-tone models. 

Across the board, date apertures are placed at 6 o’clock for an extra dimension of complexity. Inside the pieces is the Calibre 7 Automatic which reveals a 56 hour power reserve to keep the timekeeping functions and date in consistent motion. 

- You can buy a TAG Heuer Carrera Date at retail as of May 2024 for:

  • WBN231C.BA0001 (Steel/Steel bracelet) - £4,200
  • WBN2351.BD0000 (Steel and gold/ steel and gold bracelet) - £6,050
  • WBN2350.BD0000 (Steel and gold/ steel and gold bracelet) - £4,350


TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Skipper

Searching the seven seas for one of the best TAG Heuer watches overflowing with lineage and vintage appeal? May we avert your peepers for a second to the 2024 Carrera Chronograph Skipper. Trust us, you won’t be finding any men overboard here.

If you are looking to bolster your schooner with a timepiece that's fit for the briny depths, The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Skipper should be on your horological hitlist.

Best Place To Buy A Luxury Watch  Best Place To Sell A Luxury Watch

For Watches and Wonders 2024, the Carrera Chronograph Skipper is a nod to the classic ref. 7754 from 1967. 

This piece was released after the thrilling America’s Cup. TAG Heuer took the position of chief timekeeper, and following the victory of the plucky Intrepid schooner from Newport, Rhode Island, they released a watch celebrating the vibrant, colourful scheme of the boat.

Watches and Wonders 2024 represented an opportunity for TAG Heuer to revitalise the Chronograph Skipper, and give it the King Midas makeover. 

Coming in 39mm of solid rose gold, the timepieces oppose the steely past while opting for a more luxurious future. However, they still retain the consistent Carrera durability due to its 100 metres of water resistance. It’s no Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200M, but it has sufficient wrist power so the wearer can sport this in and out of the office seamlessly.

Given a navy blue dial, it undergoes a circular pattern as per its dressy design. In addition, there are sub-dials present at 3 and 9 o’clock which relate to a 15-minute scale and a 12 hour counter. Unusually, they are made up of different colour combinations.

Using the former Skipper classic tri-colour display, you can enjoy at 3 o’clock shades of coral, green and teal with a solid teal sub-dial at 9.

Why is teal so popular? It relates to the colour of the Intrepid boat that won the America’s Cup, of course! Don’t forget the open sub-dial at 6 o’clock that refers to a ¼ of a second sub-dial and incorporated date aperture. 

Within the models is the in-house TH20-06. Yielding a robust 80 hour power reserve, they skip along at 28,800VpH which ensures the speed and consistency of the timepieces. Fitted onto a blue fabric strap, they couldn’t offer any more nautical themed references if they tried. 

- You can buy a TAG Heuer Carrera Skipper Chronograph at retail for £18,750 as of May 2024.


TAG Heuer Monaco  

Ah, Monaco. Sun, sea, sand and…chronographs. What did you think we were on about?

A wonderful destination and a staple of horology! The watch was chosen by none other than the King of Cool, Steve McQueen in the 1971 movie Le Mans. Now the go-to watch for celebs like Cristiano Ronaldo and Will Smith, the line has built itself up as a go-to line for both racing and style enthusiasts.

Released in 1969, the pieces narrowly missed out on winning the first automatic chronograph race to Zenith’s glorious El Primero movement. No bad blood here then. But time is a great healer as they say. TAG Heuer quickly recovered by releasing the much storied Calibre 11 as the first automatic chronograph to be housed within a squared timepiece. 

For Watches and Wonders 2024, TAG Heuer committed themselves to releasing a fabulous Split-Seconds design (the first of its kind on a Monaco) in tribute to the 69 piece across two brand new variants. Coming in red and blue colourways, there are a few common denominators that make these one of the best TAG Heuer watches of the moment. 

Crafted out of titanium, they are both light and durable which means you can wear these without much problem in your daily life. The red edition is given a black DLC finish which allows the pieces to offer far more scratch resistance. 

At 41mm x 15.2mm thick. Don’t let this fool you. There’s a lot of high quality functionality going on under the bonnet! At 9 o’clock is a handy split-seconds chronograph activator which opposes the crown and dual pushers on the right side of the case. 

The Monaco square case remains and keeps things very ergonomic for the wearer. Both models have openworked dials which enhance the movement. The hour markers are quite miniscule but provide high contrast against the red versions blackened background, or the blue version anthracite grey dial. The red tipped hour and minute hands give another perspective on this piece that’s brimming with energetic spirit.

Fitted with two rattrapante chronograph counters at 3 and 9 o’clock, there is a small seconds counter at 6 o’clock which is useful for precisely measuring the time, especially since it’s permanently activated. 

Home to the TH81-00 calibre which has a 65 hour power reserve and a rapid 36,600VpH, both variations are available on a red or blue leather strap and would look great against a black leather or blue denim jacket. 

- You can buy a TAG Heuer Monaco Split Seconds Chronograph at retail as of April 2024 for:

  • CBW2182.FC8339 (Titanium/Blue Strap) - £121,000
  • CBW2181.FC8322 (Titanium and black DLC/Red strap) - £121,000

As a part of the influential TAG Heuer Carrera Date line, the watches are built in a fabulous steel case that has a 36mm case diameter. This ergonomic watch is polished and brushed thoroughly, pertaining to the dress watch luxury and impactful rock’n’roll vigour

Capable of dealing with 50 metres of water resistance, this simple yet emblematic Carrera utilises a slightly domed sapphire crystal to promote the aesthetics of the dial. Along the flange is a beautiful minute track flange which is similarly highly legible. Everything about this screams TAG Heuer heritage. Need we mention the logo that's emblazoned on the head of the crown?

The polished bezel draws a perfect, circular framing for the neon pink dial. The three dimensional hour markers work in conjunction with the steely hands which are coated with Super-Luminova. This works well in promoting their legibility against the pink dial which benefits from a sunburst finish, casting light across its face. 

Don’t forget that the date aperture at 6 o’clock is highly legible and capable of offering another complication. Within the steely case sits the Calibre 7 Automatic which yields a 56 hour power reserve with functions such as the hours, minutes, seconds and date. If you are looking for a sleek, simple and on trend piece, this hot pink number is the timekeeping ticket to success.

Measuring 42mm x 14.33mm thick, the Carrera Chronograph Tourbillon Glassbox is capable of 100 metres of water resistance. Boasting a polished bezel and thoroughly brushed case sides, we must not forget the stunning Glassbox crystal which leans over the dial and bezel to enhance everything beneath it. 

The teal green dial utilises circular brushing to promote the silvered hour markers and hands. Finished well with Super-Luminova to promote their legibility, they all clearly stand out from the dial with aplomb. 

There are two subdials at 3 and 9 o’clock which refer to a chronograph 30-minute counter and 12 hour counter respectively. As opposed to a traditional three sub-dial chronograph timepiece, TAG Heuer opted for a skeletonised tourbillon complication at 6 o’clock for maximum accuracy. 

Within the steely base of the watch is a powerful in-house TH2–09 calibre. Fitted with a column wheel and tourbillon function to combat the negative effects of gravity, wearers can enjoy 28,800VpH alongside a 65 hour power reserve. COSC certified? Yep, ensuring top precision and longevity. 

We get if you want to adopt a racing watch as a formal piece. Therefore, TAG Heuer has connected this onto a black alligator strap to make you the hottest thing in the office since, well, your overworked printer!

This list was a tough one to put together, dear watch enthusiasts. TAG Heuer is an exceptional brand that has continued to merit plenty of respect among the watch community. Responsible for phenomenal models for those looking for an entry-level luxury watch or for one-watch collections, they are not as pricey compared to its Swiss counterparts Rolex, Audemars Piguet or Patek Philippe.

TAG Heuer are still capable of blending innovative design with sporting history as seen from the TAG Heuer Monaco and Calibre 02 to the legendary TAG Heuer F1 collection.

Overall, the reason why you should buy a TAG Heuer is perhaps you like the model or have an affiliation with the brand.
