TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 360

Starting with the release of the first Carrera Calibre 360 by TAG Heuer, there has been a buzz.  This concept watch first appeared at the Baselworld exhibition of 2005, and got plenty of attention.  TAG Heuer created the Carrera Calibre 360 with mechanical ingenuity dating back to the early 1900’s, when Heuer’s grandfather invented the first mechanical chronograph, with the ability to measure time by 1/100th of a second.  The introduction of the 2005 Carrera Calibre 360 was witness to the first wrist worn chronograph, with these capabilities.  At the heart of the watch beats two independently designed mechanisms, which allow for regular speed during normal use of 28,800 beats per hour, and super revved-up speed of 360,000 beats per hour in chronograph mode.  At chronograph speed, the Carrera Calibre 360 moves ten times that of any other mechanical wrist worn watch in the world.  What gives the acceleration?  Ask TAG Heuer, who earned 3 elite patents for their mechanical design of this watch. 

The next version of the Carrera Calibre 360 would come in 2006, and be crafted of 18 carat Rose Gold.  This concept watch was in limited production of just 500 pieces, and was designed with the collector in mind.  If you appreciate master craftsmanship and innovative technology, you’re going to love the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 360 watches.
