TAG Heuer Carrera MikroPendulumS
THE TAG HEUER CARRERA MIKROPENDULUMS
An exclusive TAG Heuer patented technology: The first ever magnetic double tourbillon

By far the most intricate and iconic complication of Haute Horlogerie, a tourbillon is a mechanical system for regulating the speed at which a watch beats: it overcomes the effects of gravity by placing the balance wheel and escapement inside a rotating cage. Until the TAG Heuer Carrera MikrotourbillonS launch last year, tourbillons were only made because of the beauty of the mechanism: they were considered ‘novelty’ features, slow and imprecise showcase of ornate complexity. The TAG Heuer Carrera MikrotourbillonS changed that overnight--it was faster and more accurate than any tourbillon ever made.

Now the brand has taken the technology a step further.

The TAG Heuer Carrera MikroPendulumS is a TAG Heuer Carrera MikrotourbillonS with 2 magnetic Pendulums replacing the hairsprings, one for telling time and one for timekeeping. Composed of 454 working components and based on unique TAG Heuer-patented technology, its watch chain turns at 12Hz and its chronograph chain turns at 50Hz (60 minutes power reserve). The chronograph tourbillon, the world’s fastest, controls the 1/100th of a second, beats 360,000 an hour and rotates 12 times a minute.

The case is forged from a revolutionary material, a chrome and cobalt alloy used in aviation and surgery. It is fully biocompatible, harder than titanium, easier to shape and as luminous as white gold. The case design, with its stopwatch-like placement of the crown at 12 o’clock, is based on the 2012 Aiguille d’Or winner, the TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrogirder, and the Carrera 50 Year Anniversary Jack Heuer edition. The two tourbillon Pendulums and their solid rose gold bridges (18K 5N) are visible through the fine-brushed anthracite dial. The hand applied “100” at 12 o’clock is also in solid rose gold. The chronograph minutes counter is at 12 o’clock, chronograph seconds at 3, and the chronograph power reserve at 9. The 1/100th of a second scale appears on the silver flange. The strap is hand-sewn anthracite grey alligator, very high-tech in style and soft to the touch.
