An exclusive TAG Heuer patented technology: the first ever magnetic double tourbillon
The TAG Heuer Carrera MikroPendulumS replica watch is a TAG Heuer Carrera MikrotourbillonS with 2 magnetic Pendulums replacing the hairsprings, one for telling time and one for timekeeping.
Composed of 454 working components and based on unique TAG Heuer-patented technology, its watch chain turns at 12Hz and its chronograph chain turns at 50Hz (60 minutes power reserve). The chronograph tourbillon, the world’s fastest, controls the 1/100th of a second, beats 360,000 an hour and rotates 12 times a minute.
The case is forged from a revolutionary material based on chrome and cobalt used in aviation and surgery. It is fully biocompatible, harder than titanium, easier to shape and as luminous as white gold.
The case design, with its stopwatch-like placement of the crown at 12 o’clock, is based on the 2012 Aiguille d’Or winner, the TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrogirder, and the Carrera 50 Year Anniversary Jack Heuer edition. The two tourbillon Pendulums and their solid rose gold bridges (18K 5N) are visible through the fine-brushed anthracite dial.
The TAG Heuer Carrera MikroPendulumS replica watch is a Carrera MikrotourbillonS with two magnetic Pendulums replacing the hairsprings. One is used for telling the time and the other one for timekeeping. The movement is composed of 454 working components and once more based on the TAG Heuer-patented technology already mentioned at the various other presented models underneath this post.
The replica watch related Pendulum turns at 12 Hz and the chronograph related Pendulum turns at 50 Hz with a power reserve of 60 minutes. The chronograph tourbillon, the world’s fastest, controls the 1/100th of a second and therefore beats 360,000 times an hour and rotates 12 times a minute.
AVANT-GARDE HAUTE HORLOGERIE, the award-winning TAG Heuer atelier behind some of the 21st-century watchmaking’s biggest breakthroughs, delivers a double slam this Baselworld by commercializing the first-ever magnet-driven 100th-of-a-second chronograph & conceptualizing the first-ever double magnetic tourbillon.
By far the most intricate and iconic complication of Haute Horlogerie, a tourbillon is a mechanical system for regulating the speed at which a watch beats: it overcomes the effects of gravity by placing the balance wheel and escapement inside a rotating cage. Until the TAG Heuer Carrera MikrotourbillonS launch last year, tourbillons were only made because of the beauty of the mechanism: they were considered ‘novelty’ features, slow and imprecise showcase of ornate complexity. The TAG Heuer Carrera MikrotourbillonS changed that overnight–it was faster and more accurate than any tourbillon ever made.
