SIHH 2019: TAG Heuer

By: Amy Brennan-Stephenson

SIHH 2019: TAG Heuer
Demonstrating their watchmaking mastery, TAG Heuer releases its new Carrera Calibre Heuer 02T Tourbillon Nanograph for 2019.

As the world descends on Geneva to see the latest in horological marvels, TAG Heuer unveiled its newest innovation… a hairspring made of a carbon composite which has been invented, patented and produced by the avant-garde Swiss watchmaker.

Demonstrating its watchmaking prowess, TAG Heuer’s latest release- which meets chronometer standards- represents the next generation of tourbillon watches. The manufacture movement of this model features a carbon-composite hairspring, produced from a gas, that replaces the well-known Elinvar and silicon versions.

TAG Heuer’s Carrera collection has continued to evolve since it was first introduced to the world in 1963 but remains true to its DNA. Its unique modular design and connection to motor racing continues to drive one of TAG Heuer’s most popular collections.

Bridging the gap between traditional watchmaking craftsmanship and state-of-the-industry innovation, the Carrera Calibre Heuer 02T Tourbillon Nanograph is fitted with a tourbillon feature which is amongst the most impressive complications a watch collector can own. Only a small number of manufacturers have mastered this fascinating complication, with TAG Heuer being one of them.

Aside from the carbon-composite hairspring, this latest release is noted for its multi-layer dial and movement combination, featuring sandblasted and fine-brushed hexagons on the movement plate visible through an open-worked dial.

The most difficult part of a movement to produce because of the direct impact its minute tolerances has on the overall precision of a timepiece, this hairspring has been created by a team of TAG Heuer mathematicians, physicists and chemists. TAG Heuer is the exclusive manufacturer of these hairsprings, which are designed and produced in its in-house laboratory in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
