Series Overview: Carrera Calibre 360
The range of ultra-high frequency “Mikro” TAG Heuer watches released over the last 12 months can each trace their lineage back to the brand’s first foray into high-precision Chronographs- the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 360. The watch is an evolution of the Carrera 360 Concept from 2005 and was TAG Heuer’s first efforts at in-house mechanical watchmaking for more than 35 years- even if this work on the Calibre was limited to the development of the Chronograph module.
The area of ultra-precision is only a new focus for watch brands, as when the Calibre 360 was shown there were no mechanical watches displaying 1/ 10th second, let alone anything more precise.
The Calibre 360 features an innovative crown system that winds the manual Chronograph module when turned Clockwise and winds the automatic watch in the anti-clockwise direction, as the video below shows:
TAG Heuer Vanquish
The success and interest in the watch gave TAG Heuer the confidence to follow-up the Vanquish with a series of Limited Edition watches that showcased the new movement- the Carrera Calibre 360.
