Having teased you with two partial photos over the last few weeks, today we can finally share with you the full pictures of the new Rose Gold Carrera Mikrograph, a Limited Edition of 150 watches and TAG’s first new watch for 2011.
The magic of the Heuer Carrera Mikrograph is the Mikrograph movement- a new TAG Heuer designed, developed and manufactured integrated COSC Chronograph movement that is capable of 1/ 100th second accuracy.
I mentioned in the earlier post that the Carrera Mikrograph drew on the heritage of the famous Mikrograph stopwatch of 1916, the first timepiece that could time evenets to 1/ 100th accuracy. The dial layout of the watch is more like a stop-watch, with markings of 0-100 on the dial, making it significantly easier to read the elapsed time. Yes, the blue central Chronograph hand completes a full rotation every second, which is sure to be an amazing sight and sound if the Carrera Calibre 360 is anything to go by.
The movement is a work of art, with two different balance wheels, with separate escapements and transmission systems.
Over the next few days we’ll be bringing you lots more information on the watch- details of the new movements as well as photos and interviews from the launch in Geneva. Until then, enjoy these official photos.
