Calibre 360 Concept Chronograph is a wristwatch by TAG Heuer. It is the first mechanical bracelet chronograph with a precision of 1/100th of a second.

Info

TAG Heuer presented this new release at the BaselWorld 2005. The high accuracy of measurement is based on the high frequency balance wheel with 360,000 vibrations per hour. This high-beat movement concept had previously appeared only in stopwatches but has since been duplicated by other manufacturers.

TAG Heuer won the Sports Watch Prize at the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève for the Carrera Calibre 360 in November, 2006.

Movement:

The watch combines two watch movements: an automatic movement TAG Heuer Calibre 7 with a power reserve of 42 hours and a frequency of 28,800 vibrations, which was approved by the COSC as chronometer, and a chronograph function with separate barrel, manual winding, independent balance wheel and spiral mechanism.
Both watch movements are wound by a single crown, each by clockwise or counterclockwise rotation.

Case:

Titanium Grade 5 (Ti5)
Two semi-circular windows in the sapphire crystal reveal a free view of the movement

Bracelet:

Rubber with folding clasp
