- Nov 11, 2020
A few months after the release of its new chronograph, the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01, TAG has announced plans to release a tourbillon chronograph that borrows the case design of the Carrera Heuer-01. [caption id="attachment_5293" align="aligncenter" width="530"] TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T Tourbillon[/caption] The extraordinary news is its incredible price point: €14,950. The TAG Carrera Heuer-02T is simply the most affordable Swiss-made tourbillon chronograph available on the market. A symbol of the accessible luxury so dear to TAG Heuer, this watch symbolises technology, exemplary quality, performance, manufacture expertise. The Black Phantom version is part of a limited edition of 250 numbered pieces. It was developed directly from the DNA of the CH-80 chronograph, used as a basis to interpret two of traditional watchmaking's most famous complications: the chronograph (one of TAG Heuer's key strengths), and the aesthetically pleasing tourbillon. At 4 Hz, and 28,800 vibrations/hour, the main technical challenge was to house a single barrel, the chronograph functions, the automatic winding mechanism and the flying tourbillon within a diameter of 32 mm, whilst ensuring the counters were well spaced to create a modern, balanced look. An industrial framework was developed to optimise assembly in TAG Heuer's Chevenez workshops. It houses a lightweight tourbillon hand-crafted by 4 watchmakers, inspired by the Monaco V4's tourbillon, which has central sections made from titanium and a carbon top section. This tourbillon offers a power reserve in excess of 65 hours. Finally, the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T symbolises the continued investment and creativity of the TAG Heuer brand, which has been, and continues to be, at the forefront the Swiss Avant-Garde since 1860.
