Vintage Heuers on TAG Heuer Instagram

I’m a big fan of Instagram.  The Instagram format of square photographs and brief captions is ideal for sharing images and information about watches, and there is a rich flow of postings dedicated to both vintage and modern watches.  The #VintageHeuer hashtag serves the community of vintage Heuer collectors well, and we see some amazing old Heuer on Instagram, every day.

Recently, TAG Heuer has begun posting some fantastic photos of the vintage Heuers in the TAG Heuer Museum.  In this posting, we show the photos and captions from several of these postings, as well as a couple of other favorites from the TAG Heuer Instagram feed.  For each of the chronographs, we have also added links to the OnTheDash galleries where you can see additional photos.

Heuer Centrigraph Timer, for the Ferrari Formula One Team

THIGTimer

How did a little red box change racing and timekeeping forever? In 1971 Enzo Ferrari challenged Jack Heuer to create an ultra-accurate timekeeper worthy of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Jack Heuer responded with the Centigraph Le Mans, the first chronometer with a 1/1000 accuracy. ‪#‎DontCrackUnderPressure #LeMans #Centigraph #TimeKeeper #TAGHeuer #AvantGarde
