As a pioneer in advanced tabulation innovation, TAG Heuer has made a series of major breakthroughs in the 21st century watchmaking industry. This time, this award-winning watchmaker once again with two new works shocked the Basel International Watch and Jewelery Show, released in the history of the first magnet-driven 1/100 second chronograph and unprecedented magnetic double Tourbillon concept watch The
Over the past decade, TAG Heuer’s innovative watchmaking studio, a team of 25 scientists, engineers and designers, has led the most revolutionary breakthrough in the history of watchmaking. One of the most important is the high precision MIKRO series, for many great technological innovation provides a platform to achieve the history of watches for hundreds of years on the watch a series of assumptions.
TAG Heuer’s recent breakthroughs include:
TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrograph (2011): The first integrated chuck system mechanical chronograph with a central pointer display 1/100 sec.
TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrotimer Flying 1000 (2011): A completely new concept watch produced by TAG Heuer, accurate to 1/1000 sec.
TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrogirder (2012): The most prestigious “Golden Pointers” award for the watchmaking industry, the only chronograph that is accurate to 5 / 10,000 sec., Is equipped with microcircuits with vibrating frequencies up to 1,000 hertz Blade made of speed control system.
TAG Heuer Carrera MikrotourbillonS (2012): Chronograph with dual movement, dual frequency, double and double tourbillon – equipped with the fastest and most accurate tourbillon ever.
This year, TAG Heuer in the Basel International Watch and Jewelery Show once again launched heavy works. The new work is based on the Carrera Pendulum, which has created a new record in 2010, the world’s first watch to replace traditional gossamer in the escapement.
The revolutionary COSC certified governor subverts the tradition of tabulation for three centuries. In the classic spiral gossamer system (invented by Huygens in 1675), the gravity effect brought by weight is the core of the system. In the Pendulum, this problem no longer exists – no amplitude loss occurs. As a result, the precision (time division) and performance (frequency accuracy and stability) of the watch are significantly improved.
Nevertheless, the original TAG Heuer Pendulum concept table still presents a series of challenges that many people consider insurmountable. Especially the heat sensitivity problem: the temperature may affect the final performance because the magnetic field is affected by the temperature difference. However, over the past three years, TAG Heuer’s scientists and engineers have tried to use new magnetic atoms and alloys, and carefully calculate the size and geometry. In the end, a new breakthrough in the traditional tradition of birth: TAG Heuer to create an invisible, magnet-driven spiral system, can make the balance wheel with low amplitude, high frequency vibration, thus ensuring perfect precision and stability The Overall, the performance of this magnetic balance wheel with almost the best quality of the traditional hairspring balance wheel comparable. Even more gratifying is that this device is easy to manufacture and is not affected by vibration, gravity and geometric deformation.
So far, this technology has only been commercialized in watches with frequencies above 10 Hz. Fortunately, TAGHeuer has an indisputable advantage in this field, and over the years, TAG Heuer has always been a dominant player in the field of ultra-precision watchmaking.
In order to show this breakthrough in all directions, TAG Heuer will be in the Basel International Watch and Jewelery Show on the release of these two heavyweight innovative timing works: one is already in sale, one is still in the concept stage. These two watches have a number of TAG Heuer’s patent support, case design using TAG Heuer classic Carrera series of unique racing elements.
TAG Heuer exclusive patented technology: the first high-frequency chronograph by the magnet speed control table
As the first high-frequency chronograph driven by a magnet, the TAG Heuer Carrera MikroPendulum is inspired by the classic TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrograph – TAG Heuer’s first integrated column wheel system with 1/100 sec. The Like all of the works of the MIKRO series, the CarreraMikroPendulum uses a dual-core assembly that includes a 4-Hz watch wheel with 28,800 vibrations per hour and a 42-hour power reserve; and a non-glibus stopwatch (50 Hz) Vibration 360,000 times per hour, with 90 minutes of power reserve. Stopwatch by the crown on the chain: watch with classic COSC certified automatic movement, power from the balance wheel weight. In this two-body watch with 371 components, the design, manufacture and assembly of each component are done by the watchmakers and engineers of the TAG Heuer watchmaking team.
Case diameter of 45 mm, made of sandblasting process of fine grinding and polishing titanium. Key and rubber crown used 5 metal. Surface for the double-sided anti-reflective arc sapphire crystal. Dial is used charcoal gray design, unprecedented non-gossamer magnetic balance wheel proudly show at 9 o’clock position, under the balance wheel decorated with Geneva ripple. The stopwatch’s minute timer is at 3 o’clock and the second is at 6 o’clock. The stopwatch’s power reserve is shown at 12 o’clock. Charcoal gray on the scale of precision to 1/100 seconds, a red central pointer week and time to tell the passage of time. Strap with soft crocodile skin material hand-sewn, together with black titanium folding clasp, adhering to the TAG Heuer consistent sports appearance. This is the classic Carrera watch, always walk in the forefront of the times, leading the technology and design trends.
TAG Heuer Unique patented technology: the first magnetic double tourbillon chronograph
As the most complex and most representative creation of the advanced watchmaking industry, the tourbillon is a mechanical device used to adjust the speed of the watch: the influence of gravity is overcome by the balance wheel and escapement system within the rotating structure. Before TAG Heuer released Carrera MikrotourbillonS last year, the tourbillon existed only to show the beauty of the mechanical device: they were still considered a “novel” design, although they were slow, not precise enough, with only complex decorative features. However, TAGHeuer’s Carrera MikrotourbillonS in the night to subvert the people on the Tourbillon’s awareness – to create the fastest ever, the most accurate Tourbillon.
Today, TAGHeuer takes this technology forward a step further.
Tag Heuer Carrera Mikrotourbillons replica watches is based on Carrera MikrotourbillonS, adding two magnetic balance wheels, instead of the traditional gossamer, one for display time, one for timing. This extremely sophisticated device contains 454 parts, using TAG Heuer patented technology, watch the balance wheel frequency of 12 Hz, stopwatch balance wheel 50 Hz (power reserve of 60 minutes). The stopwatch loads one of the world’s fastest tourbillers, accurate to 1/100 second, 360,000 vibrations per hour, and 12 revolutions per minute.
The case has revolutionized the introduction of chrome-cobalt alloys for aerospace and surgical fields, with complete biocompatibility, harder, easier to shape than titanium, and exudes platinum-like elegant luster. The design of the case is based on the 2012 Gold Medal Award winner –TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrogirder and Carrera 50th Anniversary Jack Heuer Commemorative Edition, like a stopwatch, placing the crown at 12 o’clock. Through the carbon black matte dial, you can see two Tourbillon wheel and their rose gold bridge plate (18K5N). The pointer also uses a solid rose gold material. The stopwatch’s minute timer is at the 12 o’clock position, the second timer is at 3 o’clock, and the stopwatch’s power reserve is shown at 9 o’clock. The silver flange is engraved with a scale of 1/100 sec. Strap made of gray crocodile hand made of hand, soft touch, very modern.
As another example of Swiss craftsmanship and TAG Heuer’s expertise, TAG Heuer replica watches will present the latest innovative concept work at the Basel International Watch and Jewelery Show, which will undoubtedly be a favorite event for watch enthusiasts. By then, the new TAG Heuer Carrera MikroPendulumS will surprise the audience.
