Discover the TAG Heuer Carrera MikrotourbillonS evidenced by 13 photos and a High Definition video

We know that the tourbillon is considered to be one of the major watchmaking complications. So good so far… TAG Heuer had chosen an approach that was a little different

Also in 2012 TAG Heuer virtually re-invents the tourbillon by introducing its MikrotourbillonS. It is the first high-frequency dual tourbillon chronograph completely envisioned, developed and manufactured internally. TAG Heuer created a little revolution by integrating in the same timepiece the ultimate complications: chronograph and tourbillon.

The TAG Heuer Carrera MikrotourbillonS is equipped with a tourbillon rotating once per minute with a 4Hz regulator and a revolutionary tourbillon rotating 12 times per minute with a 50Hz regulator. This powerful combination created the utmost chronograph in terms of speed, precision and accuracy.

TAG Heuer says: “Its MikrotourbillonS is the world’s most accurate dual tourbillon, 50 Hz, dynamically compensated; the world’s fastest tourbillon rotating every five seconds; the world’s only dual tourbillon designed for precision timing; the world’s only dual tourbillon capable of measuring and displaying, like the Mikrograph, one hundredth of a second and the world’s only dual tourbillon capable of creating a ‘certifiable’ chronograph.”

The movement:

Manufacture movement, automatic chronograph

439 components

Total diameter: 35.8 mm (15 3/4’’’)

Total height: 9.79mm

2 tourbillons: 28,800 A/h = 4 Hz (One tourbillon rotation every minute) for the watch,

360,000 A/h = 50 Hz (One tourbillon rotation every five seconds) for the chronograph

45 hours Watch power reserve

60 minutes Chronograph power reserve
