TAG Heuer Watches: A Brief History of Time  

Posted by bryan7707 in , , , , ,

Many well known watch manufactures have tried to emulate the success of TAG Heuer, but none can recreate the history that has made TAG the "avant-garde" of watch making. As a young watchmaker in St-Imier, a small village in Switzerland, Eduouard Heuer had a passion for precision, high-performance sports, and taking time measurement to new and greater heights. Since 1860, it has been this vision that has made TAG watches the international reference for sports and prestige.

TAG Heuer is a brand that was founded with an emphasis on innovation and solid historical values. Since 1999, TAG Heuer has been a part of a world-renowned luxury group of companies: LVMH (Louis Vuitton- Moët Hennessy), making TAG a part of the world's fourth largest watch making enterprise.

Whether it is their choice of materials, their focus on technology, or their world-class designs, TAG Heuer has set the standard: from developing the first patent for a chronograph mechanism in 1882, to the 1998 launch of the Kirium Ti5 (the first chronograph to measure time in 100ths of a second). Even today, the TAG Heuer slogan "Swiss Avant-Garde since 1860" symbolizes their well-known philosophy. TAG Heuer is not just another watch maker; they have written some of the greatest chapters in watch making history. As a result, TAG is one of the key reasons that Swiss watches are the benchmark in watchmaking worldwide.

Anyone who is passionate about sports has probably seen the TAG Heuer brand associated with the America's Cup, the World Ski Championships, and Formula 1 Racing. Through these and many other well-known partnerships, TAG Heuer constantly drives new technologies in a highly competitive spirit. It is this spirit that is evident in their precision timekeeping instruments, which exemplify the brand's values and capture the essence of the TAG Heuer spirit of sport.

If one ever doubts how important time-keeping is to the Swiss, a visit to the TAG Heuer 360 museum in Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland will put those doubts to rest. The TAG 360 museum is the first museum dedicated to a unique collection of precision timepieces, and the 150 year history of a world-renowned brand. Located on the ground floor of the company's Swiss headquarters, the museum is a marvel of architectural beauty and time-keeping technology. The TAG 360 museum is a must-see if you find yourself in Switzerland, and a great way to while away the hours without losing track of time. Or if you lose track of time you will always have your Tag Watch.

    Rado Integral Jubilé  

    Posted by bryan7707 in , , , , , , , , ,

    High-Tech Ceramic Innovative, durable and skin-friendly: introduced by Rado in 1986, high-tech ceramic has become our signature. In metallic or non-metallic colors, with a glossy, matt,satin-brushed or decorated finish, it is the most versatile of our materials.

    High-Tech Hard metal
    Pure, simple and extremely tough: we pioneered the use of this material by introducing the world’s first scratchproof watch, The Original, in 1962. Sapphire Crystal Perpetual transparency: scratch proof high tech sapphire crystal is used throughout our collection. The application of edge-to-edge crystal and metallization are distinguishing features.

    High-Tech Diamond
    Incomparable and enduring brilliance: the Rado high-tech diamond surface offers hardness equal to that of natural diamonds. Our invention and use of this surface have earned us an entry in the Guinness Book of Records for the world’s hardest watch.

    How hard is hard?
    The extreme hardness of Rado high tech materials guarantees durability and brilliance. The Vickers scale is used to indicate hardness: the higher a value, the greater the resistance to scratches. Rado materials commence at Vickers 1,200 – far higher than gold, steel or platinum. The top value of 10,000 is attributed only to natural diamonds and to the Rado high-tech diamond surface.

    Rado quartz watches are equipped with top-quality Swiss batteries. Under normal conditions, a battery should last at least 30 months. The battery must be changed when the seconds hand starts to move in 4-second intervals (or when, on a multifunction watch, the digital display begins to blink). Battery exhaustion in a watch without a seconds hand becomes apparent only when the hands stop moving altogether. Battery changes should only be performed by an authorized Rado dealer or Service Center to ensure that only original parts are used and that your watch is properly tested for water resistance. A worn-out battery should be replaced immediately in order to reduce the risk of leakage and consequent damage to the movement.

    Joshua and Sons Triple Time Zone Watch  

    Posted by bryan7707 in , , , , , , , , , ,

    This watch has a round 316L stainless steel case and a round dial with luminous hour, minute and second hands. The local time dial features Arabic numerals at 3:00, 6:00 and 9:00. Index markers are located at all remaining hour positions. The date window is displayed at 4:00. The black choice has a triple recessed black dial and two black sub-dials. The blue style has a triple recessed silver-tone dial, a red sub-dial and a yellow sub-dial. The silver-tone choice has a triple recessed blue dial, a yellow sub-dial and a red sub-dial.

    This watch is powered by automatic movement which means the winding of the spring occurs automatically when the wearer moves his/her arm. However, it is recommended that you manually wind the watch at least once every two weeks. It is also important to adjust the time once a month as automatic movement can gain or lose a few minutes per month.

    Breitling Emergency Watch  

    Posted by bryan7707 in , , , , , ,

    Designed for pilots and aircrews, the Breilting Emergency is an instrument watch with built in micro transmitter broadcasting on the 121.5 MHz aircraft emergency frequency. Following a crash or a forced landing, for example, the Emergency will send a signal on which rescuers can home in. The watch thus serves as a complement to the aircraft's own distress signaling equipment. The Emergency's transmitter is activated by unscrewing a protective cap and pulling the antenna out fully. It will then broadcast for 48 hours. Over flat terrain or calm seas, the transmitter's signal on the 121.5 MHz aircraft emergency frequency has a range of about 160 kilometers (100 miles), assuming the search aircraft is flying at 6,000 meters (20,000 ft.).

    As of 2009, satellite transmitted distress signals will be picked up exclusively on the 406 MHz digital frequency offering enhanced compatibility with GPS or with aircraft Flight Management systems. Nonetheless, localization operations will continue to use the 121.5 MHz frequency, which in this specific context has may advantages over the 406 MHz frequency, particularly because it is more accurate and reliable in locating victims.
