Classic chronograph watches are all the rage and Tag Heuer's MikrotourbillonS is their most high-tech COSC-certified chronograph to date.
Based on TAG Heuer's iconic Carrera watch, the TAG Heuer MikrotourbillonS is their first tourbillon chronograph watch with a soft alligator strap and tantalum and rose gold case.
For most luxe watches, the tourbillon mechanism is a showy feature that looks super impressive but lacks functionality. However, the TAG Heuer MikrotourbillonS presents the company's first ever double tourbillon that is both precise and performance-driven.
The first vibrates at 28,800 beats per hour. The second (used for timekeeping) controls the 1/100th of a second chronograph and runs at 360,000 beats per hour which you can start and stop whenever you like.
The TAG Heuer MikrotourbillonS also features a dual-chain mechanism, allowing maximum precision and reducing the amount of energy loss for both the watch and the chronograph which has a power reserve of up to 60 minutes.
Self-proclaimed fastest tourbillon in the world, the TAG Heuer Mikrotourbillon looks to be more than just a fancy showpiece (price to be determined).
