TAG Heuer is launching its famous Manufacture Chrono Tourbillon with a bezel set with 68 baguette diamonds.
In 2016, exactly 710 Heuer-02T Tourbillon movements were certified by the independent testing body, Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (COSC).
In 2017, one year after the launch of its famed Heuer-02T Manufacture Chrono Tourbillon at BaselWorld, TAG Heuer is unveiling a glamorous new deluxe version, with 68 sparkling baguette diamonds set into the bezel. This dazzling take on mechanical watchmaking strikes a perfect balance between the worlds of luxury jewellery and horology. Synonymous with technology, the highest quality and performance, manufacture expertise, and perfect mastery of industrial processes and manufacturing costs, this version of the Carrera Heuer-02T is made from grade 5 titanium, a modern material which is lighter than steel.
It houses a hand-crafted lightweight tourbillon, 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. All the fitting, assembly and adjustment work is performed by hand. The main components are manufactured in the workshops of the TAG Heuer Manufacture. At the heart of the tourbillon, the balance spring is produced by the brand's Swiss partner, Atokalpa.
The 2017 model is also available with a black ceramic case and black ceramic bezel. It comes with a choice of a black alligator or full-grain calfskin leather strap, or a black ceramic strap. This new model is perfectly in line with the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T philosophy, available at a price which is still highly competitive for a manufacture-made chrono tourbillon movement.
