Tag Heuer’s passion for sports watches – be they for the road or at sea – is legendary. As early as 1895 Heuer patented their first water-resistant case and in 1939 they introduced their first waterproof wrist chronograph on the market. The first regatta stopwatch, the Yachting-Timer, came out in 1942; the Heuer Solunar in 1949 was the first ever wristwatch to feature a tide indication – to be followed by the Mareograph in 1950, a chronograph with tide indication. In 1968 Heuer created the Skipper, a mechanical chronograph with regatta countdown, which was updated to an automatic chronograph version in 1972. The 2000 series was launched; this was the first range of professional sports watches, which would evolve into the Aquaracer in 2003.
