Historical details about TAG Heuer and the model ‘Formula 1’
Founded in 1860, the luxury brand TAG Heuer is famous for technical innovations like the stop-watch mechanism, which the company patented in 1882. In 1916, the construction of a second stop with 1/100th accuracy was achieved. This success led to TAG Heuer becoming the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games. Not long after, the company was also contact partner for time matters in the ski races. Since 2003 TAG Heuer has been officially responsible for timekeeping at the Alpine World Ski Championships in St. Moritz.
In 1985, the company was renamed TAG Heuer. The company name is made up of a short word (TAG = Techniques d’Avant Garde) and the name of the founder (Heuer).
The formula 1 series is one of the most famous series of the TAG Heuer luxury brand. From 1992 to 2003, TAG Heuer was the official supplier of timing devices for the Formula 1. The similar sounding model name is supposed to be a reminder of this time and impresses with first-class functionality with quartz or automatic movement.
