Grand Tag Heuer CARRERA Calibre 36 RS Caliper

        TAG Heuer is a brand which built throughout the years a well-grounded international reputation of creating highly innovative wristwatches and chronographs defined, mainly by a fresh sporty dynamism and the notorious Swiss immaculate functionality. Among the top Swiss manufacturers, TAG Heuer is part of the renowned LVMH group; the brand has its headquarters in Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland and carries on, a long heirloom of prestige and dedication to luxury watch-making innovation and high-quality.

        Continually pushing one step further the known limits of design and engineering, the brand always sought to achieve the ultimate expression of watch-making craftsmanship, just as its motto sums it up, TAG Heuer is indeed the Swiss Avant-Garde Since 1860.

        First presented at Baselworld 2008, as the TAG Heuer Year’s Concept, Grand CARRERA Calibre 36 RS Caliper Chronograph outstands by its audacious design and astounding mechanical sophistication. On the 13th of November 2008 this magnificent timepiece managed to conquer the hearts of watches collectors worldwide, as well as those of the electing jury of the prestigious Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, horological competition which awarded it the first prize at the sports category.


        The Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève is maybe the highest recognition of a brand’s watch-making mastery and the crowning of its fruitful intertwining racing circuits and motor sports. Also the concept received the highest prizes of The Most Successful Design Award 2008, China, and of Salon Internacional de Alta Relojeria 2008, Mexico.

        TAG Heuer President and CEO, Jean-Christophe BABIN declared that although it is not the first time when TAG Heuer is awarded a Grand Prix of Haute Horology, it will always be a special honor, for him and TAG Heuer watch-making team to continually improve and reinvent the fine watch-making art and winning the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève will always be considered as a remarkable achievement and recognition of their forward-thinking and commitment to innovation.
