Carbon fibre is the hottest material to revolutionise the tourbillon watchmaking market and Tag Heuer live up to their ‘avant-garde’ legacy by becoming the first watch house to adopt this exciting development into their most recent chef-d'œuvre; Tag Carrera Calibre Heuer 02T Tourbillon Nanograph.
With only 500 of these limited edition watches available worldwide and fewer than 20 coming to the UK, you will need to act fast to get your hands on the highest development of tourbillon technology.
So, what is so brilliant about this timepiece? The incredibly lightweight carbon fibre hairspring is virtually unaffected by gravity and shock, tested in the in-house laboratory in La Chaux-de-Fonds these hairsprings are designed to withstand 5,000 g/1 m fall onto a hard surface. Also being entirely antimagnetic, inaccuracy in the tourbillon movement is eliminated which other automatic watches would be subject to and, therefore increasing the efficiency of the Nanograph.
Many layers of the dial present sand-blasted and fine brushed hexagons on the movement plate which mirror the nanoscopic hexagonal pattern of the carbon composite material – one million times smaller than a millimetre!
Continuing the hexagonal theme throughout, the osciliating mass which frequents at a staggering 28,800 vibrations per hour is viewed through the sapphire crystal case back. Similarly to the titanium carbon bezel, a layer of black PVD protects these elements of the timepiece from the effects of daily life thanks to its hard property make-up.
Neon green chosen to adorn the nanograph represents Tag Heuer’s haute horlogerie creations of the past, adorning the aluminium bridge and the inscription of the tourbillon movement. Tonal stitching enhances the calfskin leather and rubber strap which is fastened with a carbon clasp also displaying the beautiful pattern which can be viewed on the 45mm case.
To add to the avant-garde innovation of the Nanograph, Tag Heuer have designed a built-in watch winder into the limited-edition box, which comes with a two-year international warranty.
