In the high-end watch circle, there are several brands that cannot be ignored: One is Rolex, one is Breitling, one is Panerai, and last one is TAG Heuer. Of course, there are other great brands making great achievements, but what we mentioned about is pretty typical and representative. Chronograph watches develops along with other race events, such as car racing, sailing boats, aviation, etc. Rolex Daytona derives from the Daytona Beach, and TAG Heuer Monaco come from Monaco, the city of car racing. Chronograph history of TAG Heuer has gone through a century, particularly after, in 1916, TAG Heuer released its Mikrogaph which gained the great popularity with is 1/100 second of accuracy and became the most famous pocket watch. in 1963, the born of Carrera offered a new platform for TAG Heuer’s chronograph watches.
This year, TAG Heuer makes new innovations and released a more valuable Mikropendulum Tourbillon. Comparing with the old Mikropendulum, it is the first time that TAG Heuer places tourbillon and magnetic balance wheel together. Traditional hairspring is not immune from magnetism, so the close distance contact with magnetism will cause great impact on hairspring, so the anti-magnetic materials must be applied here. So far, no much information is released about such new material, but the biggest possibility is the silicon-made hairspring.
Actually, the high-frequency is a severe test to the movement, because, under the high speed of gears, the abrasion of gears is unavoidable, so TAG Heuer’s high-end watch is just an ideal watch. Although it is said officially that this watch can be produced in quantity, it is produced only when orders come in. TAG Heuer Mikropendulum Tourbillon is made of titanium and has 42 hours of power reserve. And it will have good performance and will show you prestige and make you attractive.
