Tag Heuer – Making History with Time

Jimmy Spithill, America’s youngest winner of the America’s Cup, stated, “The Competition is why you do it. As an athlete, you want to be challenged and the harder it is, the more exciting it is” (30 Years of Aquaracer).

Spithill knew what he was doing as he glanced down at his Aquaracer Calibre 72 Countdown Chronograph Limited Edition on his wrist. With time being incredibly important during Oracle Team USA crew’s sailing competition, The TAG Heuer brand made it not an option to let the hard-working men down in the big race.

The partnership between the brand and Oracle Team USA was shown in the 34th America’s Cup, representing “the Aquaracer’s 30-years reign at the luxury helm of yachting elegance” (30 Years of Aquaracer).

Tag Heuer, a Swiss brand, was acclaimed as the Official Timekeeper of Intrepid, the America’s Cup winner, in 1967, moving on to many more huge accomplishments.

In 2009, TAG Heuer “launched its most charismatic collection of water sports-inspired watches yet: the Aquaracer 500M, a diving chronograph with automatic helium valve, water resistant to 500 meters” (30 Years of Aquaracer).
