Vintage Heuer Watches

Edouard Heuer founded Uhrenmanufaktur Heuer AG in 1860, with the company’s watches and timers using the “Heuer” branding through to 1985. The company remained in the control of the Heuer family until 1982 when it was bought by a consortium led by Piaget and Lemania.

Heuer was then sold to Techniques d’Avant Garde in 1985, becoming TAG Heuer from March 1986.
