TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 360 Rose Gold

       An international icon of quality, reliability and top-class daring design, TAG Heuer started its existence 150 years ago, in a place, many times associated with the birthplace of the Swiss fine watchmaking industry, the small town of La Chaux de Fonds.

       Over the years, the name TAG Heuer became synonymous with the well-known Swiss watchmaking know how, and mastery, which turned the brand into one of the most respected watchmaking powerhouses in the world internationally known for the impressive vanguard design and uncompromising mechanical innovation of their models.

       Although the brand currently belongs to the prestigious LVMH Corporation, TAG Heuer is a manufacture that never abandoned its centenary traditions, principles and life-guiding philosophy, and up to this day continues to be, the Swiss Avant-Garde Since 1860, according to the brand’s motto.

       Recently, the brand proudly presented an amazing new horological creation, especially developed to please the enthusiast watch collectors worldwide, the new TAG Heuer Carrera Caliber 360 Rose Gold Limited Edition Watch.

       First introduced at BaselWorld 2006, the concept stunned its audience through an impressive accuracy of 1/100th of a second, a world premiere in the history of the luxury watchmaking industry.

       Intended as a horological tribute to the brand’s emblematic Carrera Watch Series, inspired by the adrenaline-inflicting world of the motor sports, the new TAG Heuer Carrera Caliber 360 Rose Gold Limited Edition Watch is a sophisticated model, which provides a superior level of timekeeping accuracy, owed to having two independent beating hearts.

       The remarkable qualities of the model come from its revolutionary mechanism – the model accommodates two sets of escapements – in everyday use functions as any normal timepiece, which oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 alternations per hour, however, when switched into chronograph mode, it accelerates its oscillating speed up to mind-numbing 360,000 vibrations per hour.

       Surely, a true watch-impassionate would like to know that the movement accommodates 230 components, and an ultra light miniaturized hairspring, and its development generated 3 worldwide patents. The first one is the 1/100th of a second chronograph, integrated in a mechanical movement, the second – a revolutionary bi-directional rotating crown, used both for hand-winding the mechanical chronograph (clockwise) and, for the automatic caliber (counterclockwise); third the timepiece incorporates a patented date transmission.

       A genuine horological breakthrough, the sophisticated TAG Heuer Carrera Caliber 360 Rose Gold Limited Edition Watch was limited to 500 high-priced collectable items, and it will be performed in luxurious 18-karat rose gold, chocolate brown dial and brown alligator leather strap.
