Happenings: Vintage TAG Heuer Chronographs On View In Paris
At 12 Boulevard des Capucines, you’ll discover the TAG Heuer Paris lead boutique.
The little stash of watches has been loaned to the shop by the TAG Heuer Museum and a small bunch of private authorities. These specific watches give a connection between the company’s past and TAG Heuer’s present assortment, set apart by the new comeback of a few of these vintage pieces.
Currently the store is facilitating a little presentation of vintage chronographs.
Placed close to each other, the watches show the chronograph’s development at Heuer; a simple comparison of the Autavia and the Montreal couldn’t more readily feature the plan advancement from the 1960s to the ’70s. It is certainly by all account not the only motivation to look at these chronographs however, as each has its own profound roots in the automative world. A yellow gold Carrera reference 1158CHN like the watches that were given at the opportunity to Ferrari F1 drivers is only one example.
