About TAG Heuer
Edouard Heuer Edouard Heuer founded a watchmaking company in 1860.
TAG Heuer was formed in 1985 when TAG (Techniques d'Avant Garde), manufacturers of high-tech items for Formula 1 cars acquired Heuer, which was already a renowned watchmaker specializing in racing chronographs. Together they became a big name in Swiss watches.

TAG Heuer has always had a strong connection with auto racing, and in fact first became known on a worldwide basis when Steve McQueen wore a Heuer "Monaco" chronograph in the 1971 film "Le Mans". Tiger Woods is one of the many stars of sport currently sponsored by TAG.

On September 13, 1999 Tag Heuer accepted a bid from LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton S.A. of 1.15 billion francs ($739 million) contingent upon a transfer of 50.1% of stocks.
