Edouard Heuer founded The Heuer Watch Company in 1860 in St. Imier, Switzerland. Chronographs have been the mainstay for Heuer and later TAG Heuer. Featuring many models and configurations, expanding the possibilities to the full. In 1958 Jack Heuer, Edouard’s son, joined the company. In 1963 the first generation of Carrera was launched. Singer made the dials, and Valjoux made the movements just like the Daytona. The name Carrera comes from Carrera Panamericana, a legendary race across Mexico. In 1999 TAG Heuer accepted a bid from LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton S.A.
