The Times of My Life, The Autobiography of Jack Heuer

*** Update – now available for download!! ***

Jack Heuer Times of My Life Book

The Times of My Life, the autobiography of Jack Heuer.  In 10 chapters and 290 pages, watch industry pioneer and modern day father of the TAG Heuer brand Jack Heuer recounts his 50 plus year journey with the now iconic sports watch brand (he retired last year).  Origins of the Carrera.  Story of the Autavia.  Steve McQueen, Le Mans and the Monaco watch.  Jo Siffert and Formula 1.   And more.

Good luck getting a HARD copy, this will be a closely-held/private title (I.e. it’s not for sale).  And yes, this is a bit frustrating for all you TAG fans out there…why TAG Heuer chose to issue a rather extensive press release on the book is a bit puzzling.
