Dubai – Exhibition under the theme of sailing and diving
Water, surfing, sailing, sport and sportsmanship… TAG Heuer has always had close links to the sea. The brand patented the invention of one of the first water-resistant cases for a pocket watch in 1895, then created the world’s first chronograph with a dial for regattas and a tide level indicator. The centrepiece of the Dubai exhibition is the Seafarer orMaréograph from 1950, the world’s first chronograph with tide indicators.
About this project, Yousuf Gargash, a Heuer Collector from Dubai, stated: «I discovered Heuer rather recently and I felt immediately passionate about the brand. Diving in the history of such a rich brand is very inspiring for my daily way of life to always re-invent yourself like Heuer was able to do.»
