TAG has announced plans to release a tourbillon chronograph that borrows the case design of the Carrera Heuer-01. And the big news is its incredible price point. At $15,950, Tag Heuer successfully released its new TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02 Tourbillon at 2016 Baselworld show, The watch draws on the stylistic themes laid down by the Carrera Heuer-01 and offers a unique party-trick: it’s powered by a TAG Heuer designed manufacture Tourbillon movement.it was easy to overlook the actual quality of the tourbillon's execution and welcome it simply as a tourbillon, finally at a relatively more affordable price. TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T Tourbillon Chronograph Watch At Basel 2016 TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T Tourbillon Chronograph Watch feature a 45 mm case, made from a combination of grade-5 titanium, stainless steel, and rubber. Both present semi-skeletonized dials, highlighting the minute and hour counters at 3 and 9 o’clock, respectively. And both feature a flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock. Where they differ greatly is in their price.The new TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T Tourbillon has the same approach as the brand used for the Carrera Heuer-01. It features a modular construction of the 45mm case, allowing to easily create several styles (which is in fact already the case as TAG introduces this watch in two editions: a titanium and black edition, and a full Phantom black one.)The TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T is large and bold-looking, yes, and it does have Heuer twice in its name, which is still rather baffling... but the watch itself, once you take a closer look, is genuinely impressive. What is clear however, is the brand’s intention to release a tourbillon movement that is verifiably sound, and able to pass the COSC certification We also know the new manufacture Calibre Heuer 02-T movement, which beats at 28,000 vph, is based on the abandoned CH-80 Chronograph, and that some of the components were already being developed in-house in the Chevenez workshops. a 60-second sub-dial has been ditched for a 60-second tourbillon: such an ingenious and also quite fortunate thing that they had chosen such a sub-dial layout for the CH80 years ago that today allows for such a symmetrical design of the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T.This is the standard Carrera Heuer-02t which features un-coated titanium lugs and matching silver brightwork on the dial. Note that both models feature the same strap- a black alligator strap sewn onto rubber- and are water resistant to 100m.
