TAG Heuer Pendulum Movement Unveiled

Three weeks ago Calibre 11 brought you the first image of the Pendulum movement- or at least the “pendulum” part of the movement.

Here for the first time is a sketch of the entire movement- you can see the elements shown in the last image just below  the TAG Heuer logo.

While this looks like the layout of a tourbillon, it is not a tourbillon movement- TAG Heuer have said that the new movement is as significant a revolution as the Monaco V4 movement.

I can imagine that whatever watch showcases the movement will have a clear window on the dial to show the workings of the pendulum.

TAG Heuer CEO Jean-Christophe Babin discussed the new movement for the first time this week with World Tempus- the interview (French only) is here. The movement will officially be unveiled on 18 March at Baselworld.
