*TAG Heuer "the Carrera MikroPendulum & MikroPendulumS"

TAG Heuer the Carrera MikroPendulum



The first high-frequency chronograph moved by magnets, the TAG Heuer Carrera MikroPendulum is inspired by the TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrograph, the first integrated column wheel mechanical 100/s wrist chronograph with a flying central hand display. Like all MIKRO creations, it is a dual chain platform with a balance-wheel system for the watch (28,800 beats per hour (4Hz) with a 42 hour power reserve), and a hairspring-less pendulum system for the chronograph (360,000 beats per hour (50hz) with a 90 minute power reserve). The crown rewinds the chronograph: the watch is run on a classic COSC-certified automatic movement powered by an oscillating weight. There are 371 components in the dual-chain structure, each designed, crafted and assembled by TAG Heuer’s Haute Horlogerie team of master watchmakers and engineers.

The 45mm case is in sandblasted, fine-brushed and polished titanium. The Grade 5 metal is also used for the pushbuttons and rubberized crown. The curved sapphire crystal is double anti-reflective curved sapphire crystal. The anthracite grey dial is fine-brushed on one side with Côte-de-Genève finishing under the pendulum--the first-ever magnetic oscillator without hairspring, which is on proud display at 9 o’clock. The chronograph minutes counter is at 3 o’clock, the chronograph seconds at 6, and the chronograph power reserve indicator at 12 o’clock. The 100ths of a second are displayed by a sweeping red central hand--and measured out on an a 1/100th of a second scale on the anthracite flange. A high-tech strap in soft, hand-sewn anthracite alligator with black titanium folding clasp finishes the sporting look. This is classic, standard-bearer Carrera, always contemporary, always at the leading edge of technology and design.
