TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrograph Unveiled

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.
