The world’s first double tourbillon combining a mechanical tourbillon (4 hz) and a magnetic tourbillon (50 hz) regulation system
Another step beyond the tourbillon
Over the last decade, tag heuer’s avant-garde haute horlogerie workshop has pulled off some of the most impressive breakthroughs in watchmaking history.
The core of that achievement is its high-precision mikro series, a platform of powerful technological innovations that sweep away many of watchmaking’s centuries-old traditional approaches. this results in the production of a chronograph collection accurate to 1/100th of a second and even more.
The haute horlogerie atelier’s recent breakthroughs include the carrera pendulum (2010), the first escapement to work with magnets instead of a traditional hairspring, the carrera mikrograph (2011), the first wrist mechanical chronograph to master 1/100th of a second on the central hand, and the carrera mikrotourbillons (2012), the fastest and most accurate double tourbillon.
In 2014, tag heuer takes another step beyond with the carrera mikropendulum tourbillon – the world’s first double tourbillon combining a mechanical tourbillon for the watch and a magnetic tourbillon regulation system for the chronograph, accurate to 1/100th of a second.
