Tag Heuer Connected: Stepping Into the Future of Luxury Watches

Screen Shot 2016-01-09 at 2.35.35 PM

This past year, Tag Heuer has made it’s place in watchmaking history. And they did this not only by creating a smartwatch but also by taking their brand under a complete cultural change in efforts to focus to connecting to a younger generation while maintain the values of Jack Heuer.

 

The milestones they’ve set are seen in the grand design of the Tag Heuer Connected, the first “luxury” smartwatch to hit the market. Along with partnering with Google and Intel, it also brags the first smartwatch with an Intel chip inside.

 

MATERIALS:

The Tag Heuer Connected is powered with an Intel Atom Z34XX processor. It’s a man-sized watch —measuring 46mm. And because it’s composed of grade 2 titanium, it wears extremely comfortably, weighing only 52g. And in favor of something more luxurious, it’s covered in crystal sapphire unlike it’s glass cased competitors. To create a sporty look, it comes with a black rubber strap, with other colors available for purchase.

DESIGN:

The idea behind the Tag Heuer Connected was to build a luxury smartwatch that didn’t actually look like a smartwatch. To meet your style needs, it boasts 3 different interfaces to choose from: black, deep blue, and pearl white, with each face representing the classic mechanical look of Tag Heuer. It features details from their mechanical watches such as the sleek, signature hands and strong, angular numerals to tell the time. Overall, it creates a gentlemanly that is wearable for almost all occasions, and the rubber strap adds ruggedness that makes this watch even more desirable.

The Hottest Luxury Watch Brands of 2016

Interested in who will have the hottest watches on the market this year? Timepiece Perfection has laid out a few of the top brand you’ll have to keep your eye on in 2016:

 

Audemars Piguet

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 9.55.53 PM
For the last 150 years, AP has created some of the most high-end watches money can buy. With a history of creating innovative minute repeater watches, their brand is founded on some of the most accurate and luxurious horological instruments.

If you’re looking for a gorgeous, forged carbon watch by AP, keep your eye out for the new Royal Oak Concept Laptimer Michael Schumacher. It’s said to be their most ground-breaking mechanical movement yet.

 

Blancpain

Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 9.54.42 PM

Since it first began creating timepieces in the 18th century, Blancpain had held up their true tradition of innovation and creativity. Famous for their Fifty Fathoms dive watch, this year they have reinforced their commitment to combine economic development with marine conservation by supporting World Ocean summit.

This year, they will be releasing more watches to fit their theme, by donating a portion of their proceeds to the cause.

 

A. Lange and Sohne
A-Lange-Sohne-GQ-22Oct15_b_320x480

As the leading Saxon watch manufacturer for over 170 years, you can expect nothing less than impressive from this brand. A. Lange and Sohne has opened a new factory, and they’re making exquisitely crafted watches to commemorate their achievements, such as the Zeitwerk Minute Repeater, and the more affordable yet equally stunning Lange 1.

 

Bell and Ross
Bell-Ross-GQ-22Oct15_b_320x480

Although they’re known for their square case watches, their latest watches are anything but “square”. This year, we’re eyeing the limited edition 10th anniversary Skeleton Tourbillon Mono-Pusher Chronograph. It gives the impression of being prised from a military aircraft, giving it a touch of class and strength like no other timepiece.

 

Rolex

Now this is a brand that you should always keep in mind when searching for the most luxurious watches on the market. This year, they’re celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Day-Date, resulting in an extreme makeover for it’s flagship model. They’re also branching out by offering a Yachtmaster with a rubber strap in a delectable pink-rose gold case.

 

Omega
23332412101001-20-large

With the release of the latest bond film Spectre, Daniel Craig has given Omega plenty of exposure by wearing their Seamaster model designed specifically for the film. The Seamaster 300 Spectre has the Bond family coat of arms and gun barrel found in the self-winding weight. But their impressive watches go being 007: keep your eye out for more supremely accurate watches to be released this year.

Guide to Finding Your Watch Model Number

Sure, luxury watches come with the paperwork for authenticity. But what do the variety of numbers mean, and which ones are important? The watch model number is a key part of your watch, and it’s location is found on a specific and unique location depending on the watch. To help you find your watch’s model number, we’ve laid explained how to find it based on your watch brand:

 

Jaeger Le-Coultre:

Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 7.19.21 PM

Jaeger Le-Coultre can be a little complicated, but your best bet with them is the “Q” number or case back number. Interestingly, there are three models that can identify one Jaeger LeCoultre watch. Some watches are referred to by all three, whereas some are more commonly identified by just one of these numbers. There more popular models are usually in the form XXX.X.XX or a similar format. Jaeger Le-Coultre watches also have what is known as a “Q” model number. This “Q” model number (ex. QXXXXXXX) and a case back number XXX.X.XX are searchable and should be found on the paperwork, tag, and caseback.

 

 

Rolex:

10995567_666927303415805_5985542134904191372_n

Having paperwork on hand is key if you need to find your Rolex watch number. Otherwise, finding it directly on your watch can be tricky. Usually, the model number is located between the watch lugs under the bracelet. So, that means that you must remove the bracelet or band. One set of links or lugs will display the watch model number, and the other will display the serial number. If you absolutely need to do this, we recommend having the bracelet removed professionally to avoid scratches.

 

 

Patek Philippe:

5146-1J

Patek Philippe makes things a little tricky too. On the case back, you’ll see a number, but it only has the serial number. The watch model number is actually located on the inside of the case back. Again, we recommend having the case removed professionally if you absolutely need to find this number.

 

 

Cartier:

11102718_685917324850136_6206923749517999403_n

If you’re looking for the model number on your Cartier watch, you’ll find the 4 digit code on the case back and on the paperwork. This particular number serves as a unique identifier that will designate the specific type of model. Others with the same number will have identical size and dimension, but they may differ in materials. When looking for the number on the paperwork, it will typically start with the letter “W” followed by the 4 digit number. Also, if you can’t find the number on the case, don’t worry: some earlier models or quartz models don’t have a model number on the case.

 

 

Breitling:

20898_699031016872100_3057190416677511752_n

If you’re looking for your Breitling model number, you’re in luck: they’re simple and easy to find. Every watch of theirs is marked on the case back with the model number. And on the paperwork, you’ll find the same model number with additional numbers relating to the specific design of the timepiece. There, you may also find another code with a letter followed by five digits indicating the chronometer certificate. However, that doesn’t come standard with every Breitling model.

 

 

Tag Heuer:

Screen Shot 2015-10-07 at 7.22.48 PM

Thankfully, Tag Heuer created a clear and simple system for finding and identifying the watch model. On the case back, their watch will have a serial number and a model number matching that on its paperwork. The watch model number is the one the is number on top, beginning with a letter. In some cases the watch model number can be standing alone, or right above the displayed movement on an exhibition case.

What Defines a Luxury Watch?

4features

 

Luxury watches are more than just an accessory — they’re an expression of prestige.

 

All the way from the production to the brand name, high-end timepieces are distinctly different from simple, mass-produced watches. To add clarity to what truly sets apart a luxury watch, we’ve laid out 4 aspects to look for:

10704121_614418518666684_6258916897318388569_n 

1. In-House Movements

When it comes to the quality of luxury timepieces, it’s all about production. True high-end watchmakers develop their instruments using in-house movements, setting their watches apart in terms of speciality. Some watchmakers even do the final polishing and assembly entirely by hand, giving it an exemplary touch found only in a luxury timepiece.  Plus, many luxury timepieces have limited production, inherently raising their value.

 

1910604_610594935715709_5439911137212945520_n

2. Brand

Every luxury watch brand has distinguishing factors found in their timepieces.  Rolex, for example, is known for using an expensive and difficult steel called 904L for their watches. That special kind of steel is what keeps their watches looking beautiful for years to come — which is why owning a Rolex comes with a high price tag. And a high-end watch isn’t always defined by the price alone. Watch enthusiasts would classify watches such as Omega and Cartier as luxury timepieces, although they aren’t as expensive as brands such as Blancpain and Audemars Piguet.

 10403066_679694525472416_7952553308139334756_n

3. Jewelry

A luxury watch should go beyond timekeeping — it has to fit the look of a person with a high-end lifestyle. True luxury watches are made of only the finest materials. High quality, precious metals should protect your timepiece, while retaining the polish and its beauty for years to come. Something else to look for are jewels that decorate the watch. After all, nothing says luxury like gems that line the case or face of a high-end watch. All these materials add to the value of this jewelry.

 

ap

4. Complications

Watches with complications have features that go beyond the simplicity of timekeeping. A “complicated” watch is one that has many sophisticated functions, including chronograph, date displays, calendars, and time-zone displays. And creating a watch with more complication means implementing thousands of parts and intricate functions to make a truly high-end timepiece.

 

A timepiece that boasts at least 3 complications is generally called a Grand Complication, such as this one from the Audemars Piguet from the Royal Oaks Collection shown above. It features a perpetual calendar indicating the day, date, week, moon phases, month, leap years, minute repeater, split-seconds chronograph and small seconds at 9 o’clock.


Every watch enthusiast will carry their own opinion about what makes a high-end watch a high-end watch. But here at Timepiece Perfection, we feel that those 4 characteristics are what make up a true luxury timepiece.

Build Your Watch Collection: Big Pilot’s Watch Top Gun by IWC

 

It’s a great new flavor of a Big Pilot…

and it is still handsome as hell.

-Ariel Adams, A Blog to Watch

 

10590693_619046901537179_1508488872136271487_n

 

 

The Big Pilot’s Watch Top Gun is the largest IWC timepiece with self-winding movement.

 

It’s bold, black, and versatile in style. And whether or not you’re a fan of pilot watches, this IWC timepiece would do great things for any watch collection. And why are we so impressed with it here at Timepiece Perfect? To explain, here’s our review of this superb timepiece:

 

Materials

The innovative use of zirconium oxide and titanium is what sets apart Schaffhausen IWC from other luxury watch manufacturers. As one of the first brands in the industry to use those materials together, they have since then mastered the art of designing a watch that is impressive in both performance and design. The Big Pilot’s Watch Top Gun watch is a perfect example of their craftsmanship. Composed of a high-tech ceramic case and titanium crown, it’s obvious that it’s a true pilots watch. The strong, black nylon wears comfortably and durably.

 

 

Design

Screen Shot 2015-03-20 at 5.50.24 PMThis IWC watch is black, sleek, and high-end in design. The size and structure itself makes this watch masculine and almost soldier-esc, like it should be worn on a military man (or a pilot, obviously). Even if you aren’t a fan of large watch faces, it’s hard not to want to wear this stunning timepiece. The impressive, bold face in 48 mm wide, is contrasted by white numerals and hands that makes for easy legibility. It also features a date display aperture, which sits at the third hour on the Big Pilot. You’d think that the nylon strap would make this timepiece look extremely sporty, but the watch and strap as a whole definitely have a touch of class. It’s certainly something that can be worn for daily wear. And because of it’s colors, it still works well with black suits when you’re feeling fancy.

Fashion Guidelines: How to Wear a Watch

 

 

10362928_616406765134526_7677913737701533460_n

 

After you’ve invested hours of research and spent hard-earned money on your luxury timepiece, it’s time for the best part: wearing it. Although owning a luxury watch can help you look more like a proper gentleman or classy lady, knowing how to wear it shows that you have proper etiquette and helps you get the most out of your watch. In order to wear it properly, here are some tips for wearing different types of luxury watches:

 

1891343_668481853260350_5848456638890621866_oSports Watch

A luxury sports watch has the exquisite design and high-performance functionality that makes it perfect for sporting experiences. Many are designed specifically for sports that involve diving, racing, and flying. They are generally worn because of their features, such as keeping time and measuring speed or depth. If a sports watch has a high-end and sleek design, it can be worn for some semi-formal engagements. However, a common fashion faux-pas is wearing a suit or very formal attire with a sports watch.

It’s important to choose an everyday watch that fits the comfort and style you’re looking for. For this kind of watch, it’s not about the fancy features: it’s about simplistic and dynamic style. You want something that’s versatile for every outfit and occasion. For the strap, it’s best to go with a leather band in a thin, simple design. A neutral black or brown strap will make it great for daily wear, and a minimal watch face will match everything in your wardrobe.

A dress watch is meant to complement and enhance your outfit for special events and occasions. It needs to be something that has a sleek, high end design fit for a gentleman or lady. If you choose a leather strap, pick a color that matches your dress, shoes, and belt. If you go with a metal band, make sure that everything from your tie pins to your cufflinks match your timepiece. For women, choose the watch bracelet that has the jewels and metals to match your formal jewelry set.

Once you decide on your sports watch, daily watch, and/or dress watch, you need to follow some more steps to wear it properly:

 

Choose Where it is Worn
Most people tend to wear their watch on the non-dominant hand, but the choice is totally up to you. Simply choose the wrist that feels most comfortable with a watch on.

Get it Sized
Every watch should be sized to fit you perfectly. This will ensure that it sits correctly  and stays on safely, without being too loose or too tight.
