Founder: Edouard Heuer founded the company at the age of 20 in 1860.

History: After the founding of the company in 1860 in the Jura Mountains region, the company created the oscillating pinion and patented it in 1887. Then in 1895 the company patented one of the first water resistant pocket watches. In 1908 the company made a patent for the Pulsometer dial that is still used by doctors in this day and age. The brand introduced the first TAG wristwatch chronographs in 1914. In 1924, the company’s chronographs were used as official stopwatches in the Paris Olympic games. The first dashboard clock for aviation/automobiles was created in 1933. The worlds first wristwatch with a tide indicator went into distribution in 1949. 1 year later the Mareograph was created and it was the worlds first chronograph with a tide level indicator and a dial for regattas. A very unique stopwatch was designed in 1957 that had interchangeable rings in order to time various sports at the same time. In 1962 the first Swiss watch entered space and it was worn by John Glenn. The first automatic chronograph with a micro-rotor was created in 1969. In 1992 the company became the official timekeeper of Formula 1 racing. The elegant Alter Ego watch line was launched to glorify women in 1999. In 2010 the company created the Pendulum watch which was the first watch with a magnetic oscillator and therefore allows for a much higher frequency and more precision.
