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. 1/100th of a second counter for a mechanical wrist chronograph.
  2. Crown winding rotatable in both directions. The crown operates two movements: clockwise it winds the chronograph with manual winding; counterclockwise the automatic movement.
  3. 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.

Both movements are wound by a single crown, by rotation clockwise or counterclockwise.
