Price Matching on Watches & Jewellery
Revolutionary design and outstanding reliability are two characteristics that exude from all TAG Heuer watches. As fully authorised TAG Heuer stockists, Banks Lyon carries an extensive selection of men’s, and ladies’ watches from their most popular collections, including the TAG Heuer Carrera and TAG Heuer Aquaracer series. Renowned for consistently pushing boundaries and breaking the mould, TAG Heuer has a history of being at the very forefront of watchmaking throughout their history.
1860 marked the beginning of TAG Heuer watches, as they were founded by Edouard Heuer in Saint-Imier, Switzerland. In 1882, Heuer patented his first chronograph and, later, in 1887, moved to patent an ‘oscillating pinion’, which is still used by major watchmakers of mechanical chronographs today.
In 1962, TAG Heuer became the first Swiss watchmaker in space. John Glenn wore a TAG Heuer stopwatch as he piloted the Mercury Atlas 6 spacecraft on the first US manned space flight to orbit the earth. The reliability displayed by these watches gave the brand a global appeal which has continued to grow throughout the years.
Fast forward to today and over 150 years of Swiss excellence has brought forward timepieces that break the rules and push boundaries for everyday wear, and even the most demanding of situations. With an unparalleled precision that never compromises, functionality meets fashion with TAG Heuer watches.
Some of this brand’s most famed collections are inspired by racing, such as the TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection and the TAG Heuer Monaco, which led to the iconic Steve McQueen becoming an ambassador for the collection, giving the brand a significant push on its rise to fame. With scratch-resistant features in the form of sapphire crystal, treated several times with anti-reflective properties, it’s no wonder these watches are often the choice of many leading sportsmen from around the world, with ambassadors including the likes of Muhammed Ali and Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Tag Heuer watches also come with security clasps, fine brushing for elegant finishing and automatic movement producing a reserve of between 42 and 48 hours, even in the smaller ladies’ versions, so you can rest assured that any TAG Heuer watch you purchase will stand the test of time.
Not one to leave an innovative opportunity unexplored, each one of the 300 product projects TAG Heuer watches runs each year has the same underlying concept – to reinvent the most basic of watchmaking principles: energy, transmission and regulation. Collections such as the TAG Heuer Aquaracer and TAG Heuer Link are put through their paces at water depths of 200-500m, with compression stress tests, 16,000 shocks and freefalling tests carried out on each timepiece that is sent to market. The rigorously tested these watches of today boast an exceptional durability to ensure that timepieces of the finest quality make it on to your wrist.
Along with the extremely rigorous tests carried out to ensure that each timepiece is able to withstand a whole host of harsh environments, TAG Heuer watches also undergo other tests to verify they are ready for everyday wear. These additional tests carried out by professionals include 14 days of non-stop sweat, watches being exposed to pressure cookers style environments, as well as submarine ultrasound waves. TAG Heuer’s world-renowned dedication to each of their timepieces has resulted in their very own watchmaking school opening.
