Tag Heuer watch repairs are expensive and should be kept in good condition. This can be achieved by keeping up with a regular service schedule.
Most Tag Heuer quartz watches require a battery replacement every two to three years. It is best to have an authorized Tag Heuer repair shop do the work as local or self-repair work could be considered unauthorized and may void your warranty.
Repairing a Tag Heuer Chronograph
As a watch brand, Heuer gained popularity during the Reagan Era as a status symbol for well-heeled preppies who strapped on sporty two-tone watches and rolled around in their unruly Porsche 911s. Heuer survived the Quartz Crisis of the 1970s and relaunched as TAG Heuer in 1985 after Techniques d’Avant Garde (TAG) acquired the company.
The Heuer brand continues to push the envelope of precision and technology with their “Swiss Avant-Garde Since 1860” slogan. Their founder, Edouard Heuer patented an oscillating pinion that made chronographs cheaper and less complicated without sacrificing reliability or accuracy.
TAG Heuer has an impressive line of watches, including their Carrera series that features a variety of sizes and styles, from the svelte 39mm three-register chronograph to the 42mm chrono-tourbillon. All of these watches use the highly technical Calibre Heuer 02 movement, which is made in-house by TAG Heuer. The watchmakers at Pro Watch Repair service these watches by meticulously cleaning each component of the movement and carefully lubricating them to prevent future damage.
Repairing a Tag Heuer Diver
After Heuer built its reputation in motorsports with chronographs and timers, the company looked to take a big step into the realm of diving watches. Heuer’s 2000 Series of dive watches introduced a core set of features that would define its diving-oriented timepieces for years to come.
These “six features” included a sapphire crystal, a unidirectional rotating bezel, water resistance to 200 meters or more, a screw-down crown and double safety clasp on the bracelet or strap, and luminous markers on the dial and hands. Heuer’s 1000 Series also offered four different sizes so that every diving enthusiast could find a watch to wear.
Depending on how often you use your Tag Heuer, it will need a full service every 3 to 5 years. At Setrak, our watchmakers carefully disassemble your Tag Heuer to clean every part of its movement with ultrasonic cleaning solutions. The moving parts are then carefully lubricated so they will not get damaged from friction in the future.
Repairing a Tag Heuer Timepiece
Whether it is an automatic chronograph or a sleek Connected watch, TAG Heuer has a luxury timepiece for any occasion. Its enduring association with motorsports has made it one of the most recognized Swiss watches in the world. Its iconic timepieces have been worn by renowned athletes and celebrities including astronaut John Glenn, Steve McQueen in “Le Mans,” and the brand continues to support racing teams such as Aston Martin Red Bull Racing, where they are the official watch, timekeeper and team performance partner.
It is important to have your TAG Heuer watch serviced on a regular basis to keep it in excellent condition. A professional ultra-sonic cleaning and lubrication will help to ensure the longevity of your TAG Heuer watch. You should also avoid exposing your watch to magnetic fields and equipment like televisions, speakers, and tablets, as this can shorten the spirals of the hairspring and cause inaccurate time measurements. Tag Heuer watches are elegant, sophisticated, and timeless pieces that will last a lifetime with proper care.
Repairing a Tag Heuer Quartz
A Tag Heuer is a precision luxury watch that should be carefully inspected and maintained to ensure accurate functionality. It is recommended that a Tag Heuer be professionally cleaned and serviced at least four times a year to prevent damage.
Tag Heuer quartz watches require regular battery replacement to maintain accuracy. If your Tag Heuer battery has run out, it is important to replace it immediately. A low battery will cause the second hand to jump in five-second intervals, a clear indication that it needs to be replaced. A worn battery will also shorten the spirals of the hairspring, causing inaccurate time measurements.
A rattling noise while wearing your Tag Heuer is a sign that one of the 400 pieces inside the watch has come loose. This could lead to significant damage if left unchecked. A trusted TAG Heuer repair service vendor can quickly inspect and repair this problem. A TAG Heuer watch is a legacy piece that can be enjoyed for generations to come, so it is important to take proper care of it.
