Just six months after the release of the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01, the backbone of a new collection of contemporary manufacture chronographs, comes the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T, a COSC-certified automatic chronograph combined with a titanium and carbon flying tourbillon.
A symbol of the accessible luxury so dear to TAG Heuer, this watch symbolises technology, exemplary quality, performance, manufacture expertise, and the perfect mastery of industrial processes and manufacturing costs which have made it the only COSC automatic chronograph with Tourbillon produced by the Swiss watch industry for under 15,000 CHF. The Black Phantom version priced at 19,900 CHF, is part of a limited edition of 250 numbered pieces.
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.
