    History of the TAG Heuer Monaco

    Founded in 1860 by Edouard Heuer when he was just 20 years old, the eponymous company very quickly made a name for itself as a quality manufacturer of reliable and robust chronographs and timepieces contributing to watchmaking innovation with inventions like the oscillating pinion, still used today.

    The connections to the worlds of sport and motor racing cars contributed to the growing success of Heuer. Among the milestones we can mention the first board chronograph for vehicles created in 1911 or the patented ”Mikrograph", the world's first stopwatch with a precision of 1/100 seconds in 1916.

    In 1933 Heuer developed the first board watches for racing cars and in the same year the legendary stopwatch Autavia. Heuer’s pocket chronographs were selected as official stopwatches for several editions of the Olympic Games and other sport events.
