       A prestigious watch-making brand, headquartered in Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, TAG Heuer currently functions parented by the LVMH international group, and during its centenary existence dedicated to uncompromising creativity and innovation the brand became the a trendsetter among the elitist world of fine watch-making industry, or the Swiss Avant-Garde Since 1860, how the brand’s motto sums TAG Heuer’s life-guiding philosophy.

       For most watch connoisseurs worldwide, the brand’s name became synonymous with immaculate mechanical purity, fresh sophisticated design and unmatched reliability and functionality. Through the years, the brand experienced a fruitful intertwinement with the adrenalin-inflicting world of racing circuits. Recently, in order to pay a great tribute to this fascinating muse of inspiration, TAG Heuer created another superb race-inspired chronograph- the new Calibre 1887 Chronograph, first introduced at Baselworld 2010.

Hosting the timepiece’s unmatched mechanical sophistication, there is a stylish stainless steel case, measuring 41 mm in diameter, which demonstrates a nice polished finish, and comes coupled with a round bezel fitted with tachometer scale. The watch’s case incorporates an anti-glare coated, scratchproof sapphire crystal, and an exhibition case-back that allows an inquiring eye to peek at the delicate dance of the movement. Moreover, the beautiful architecture of the case provides a great 100-meters water resistance.

       The beautiful model was produced in two stylish dial variations: silver and black, and, for optimal time-legibility, it features hours an minutes hands fitted with luminescent coating. The dial features three chronograph counters, a 12-hour chronograph, located at 6 o’clock, a 30-minutes counter, at 12 o’clock and a small second’s sub-dial, positioned, respectively at 3 o’clock. Moreover, the highly functional design of the timepiece also incorporates a small date aperture, positioned at 6 o’clock.
