The Grand Carrera Calibre 36 RS Caliper replica watch is the world's first mechanical chronograph which measures and displays time to 1/10th of a second. The unequalled Caliper Rotating Scale magnifies the 1/10th second scale for at-a-glance readings.The C.O.S.C. certified movement oscillates at an astonishing 36,000 vibrations per hour. This enables the central seconds hand to count 1/10th of a second intervals. Inspired by GT race car engine design, the breakthrough Grand Carrera Rotating System replaces traditional hands with dashboard style discs: the readability is optimum while maintaining effortless elegance.

Grand CARRERA Calibre 36 RS Caliper Concept Chronograph is another revolutionary timepiece to be revealed by TAG Heuer at Baselworld 2008. The replica watch, equipped with column wheel movement, is destined to become the first mechanical automatic chronograph able to measure and display 1/10th of a second. The COSC-certified chronometer movement is beating at an amazing frequency of 36, 000 vibrations per hour. The unique mechanism can be admired through a tinted double sapphire crystal.

Although it’s a mouthful, this timepiece is one of the best looking and most advanced to sport the Grand CARRERA name. In fact, this watch is the first mechanical automatic chronograph capable of measuring and displaying 1/10th of a second increments, which comes by way of the central seconds hand. The chronometer movement is COSC-certified at a frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour.

Another innovative design element is the way the watch displays the information. TAG Heuer developed an exclusive Rotating scale that permits precise reading of 1/10th of a second, just replica watch the video, and you will see what I am talking about.

This concept watch is so exclusive that the design is featured on the dashboard of the limited edition Ken Okuyama designed K.O.7 sportscar, that was on display at the TAG booth this year at Baselworld. After seeing Ken's new design in person at Basel I was not surprised to read that he is the one who designed the famous Ferrari Enzo.

To add to the sporty automotive inspired design of the replica watch they added a caliper to the dial, which connects to the hour and minute counters at 3 and 6 o'clock. They even perforated the strap, to add to the sporty design.
