Considered as the ultimate watchmaking complication, the tourbillon is the signature of the greatest manufactures of all times but is often sourced from external and independent manufactures. In 2012, TAG Heuer’s engineers and watchmasters re-invent the tourbillon by introducing the MikrotourbillonS, the first high-frequency dual tourbillon chronograph entirely envisioned, developed and manufactured internally. The company creates a complete revolution by integrating in the same timepiece the ultimate complication: chronograph and tourbillon.Equipped with a fast tourbillon rotating once per minute with a 4Hz regulator and a revolutionary tourbillon rotating 12 times per minute with a 50Hz regulator, it is the utmost chronograph masterpiece in term of speed, precision and accuracy. The TAG Heuer MikrotourbillonS is the world’s most accurate dual tourbillon, 50 Hz, dynamically compensated; the world’s fastest tourbillon rotating every five seconds; the world’s only dual tourbillon designed for precision timing; the world’s only dual tourbillon capable of measuring and displaying, like the Mikrograph, one hundredth of a second and the world’s only dual tourbillon capable of creating a “certifiable” chronograph.
Este hermoso modelo ha sobrepasado ya todas las pruebas de calidad y funcionalidad por parte de la empresa Tag Heuer, tomando en cuenta la resistencia altas y bajas temperaturas, para que tenga un funcionamiento adecuado con cualquier climatología, como también pruebas de resistencia a la tracción, impactos, entre otras que ha sobre pasado con éxito para convertirse en uno de los mejores modelos presentados por la empresa hasta la actualidad.
TAG Heuer, a Swiss luxury watchmaker which has notably written some of the most important chapters in the history of Swiss watchmaking, from the oscillating pinion in the Microtimer, the first ever bracelet chronograph accurate to 1/100th seconds, to the Monaco V4 series watch, and the Carrera Calibre 360, the first mechanical movement to display 1/100th second, has now come up with an incredibly new MikrotourbillonS, a wristwatch equipped with two tourbillions escapements, one for timekeeping and other for the chronograph. The MikrotourbillonS is TAG Heuer’s most ambitious luxury chronograph to date and is yet another impressive development of the brand’s ‘Mikro’ platform that actually powers the wide range of chronographs with ultra-high frequency. We have also earlier seen TAG Heuer’s world’s fastest chronometer watch, the Mikrotimer Flying 1000, which is capable of tracking 1/1000th of a second.
Technically, TAG Heuer’s ‘Mikro’ platform, which is a dual-frequency movement with two barrels, powers the range of ultra-high frequency Chronographs, ranging from the 1/100th second mikrograph through to the 2/10,000the Mikrogirder. And, both of the functions run autonomously of one another, with one tourbillion running at 4 Hz and controls timekeeping. While the second tourbillion runs at 50 Hz and controls the chronograph, which can measure events to 1/100th of a second. The latter however completes an entire revolution in just 5 seconds, thus making it 12 times faster than standard tourbillion, which takes full 1-minute to complete a revolution.
