Sports chronograph by TAG Heuer
Continuation of the first mechanical wrist chronograph with a precision of 1/100th of a second, which had been introduced 2005 with the concept model Calibre 360 Concept Chronograph.
The Calibre 360 corresponds to a living organism with two hearts: 2 escapements that allow a standard rate (28,800 A/h) under normal conditions, as well as an acceleration to top speed (360,000 A/h) in chronograph mode. Such precision requires a movement of more than 230 components, a significantly lighter and downsized balance spring and escapement (26% smaller in diameter than a conventional inertia), and no fewer than three world exclusive patents:
- 1/100th of a second counter for a mechanical wrist chronograph.
- Crown winding rotatable in both directions. The crown operates two movements: clockwise it winds the chronograph with manual winding; counterclockwise the automatic movement.
- Date transfer from the lower movement part to the upper dial.
The watch was launched in three limited series: stainless steel (360 pieces), rose gold (500 pieces), and white gold (100 pieces). She was elected "Sports Watch of the Year" at the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix 2006.
- TAG Heuer Caliber TH360
- The watch combines two movements: an automatic movement with a power reserve of 42 hours and a frequency of 28,800 vibrations (certified as chronometer by the COSC), as well as a chronograph function with separate barrel, manual winding, independent balance and spiral mechanism
- Both movements are wound by a single crown, by rotation clockwise or counterclockwise.
