先锋 TAGHeuer, a Swiss pioneering watchmaking brand, is one of the most important watchmaking brands in the field of racing. Its classic Carrera has been highly sought after for a long time. Not only because of the close connection between the brand and the racing field, but also because of this classic collection’s constant subversion of watchmaking design rules. Today, Tag Heuer has added three new pieces to this legendary collection, all made of rare and lightweight carbon fiber materials, including a tourbillon model.

TAG Heuer Carrera Three Carbon Fiber Watches

TAG Heuer Carrera Carbon Tourbillon Phantom Watch

45This 45mm tourbillon watch is equipped with Calibre Heuer02T movement made by TAG Heuer. The color of its internal mechanical parts is dark black, hence the name Phantom. CalibreHeuer02T movement is certified by the Swiss Official Astronomical Observatory (COSC), which means that the watch has passed the rigorous evaluation of the accuracy and accuracy of mechanical watches by the testing organization of this institution. The black gold-plated and black PVD-coated parts complement the black opal dial, giving this watch a deep and bold look that suits a variety of fashion styles. The titanium case is plated with black PVD, and the fixed bezel and lugs are made of carbon fiber. Through the transparent sapphire case back, the homemade movement is even more mysterious, further enhancing the overall ‘phantom’ effect of the watch. The Tag Heuer Carrera Carbon Fiber Tourbillon Phantom Watch features a rubber-lined matte black leather strap, limited to 500 pieces, and a limited number engraved on the case back of each watch. This memorable watch will be on sale at selected stores around the world.

TAG Heuer Carrera carbon fiber watch, rose gold or blue rhodium plated

The latest two chronographs that have joined the Carrera series are inspired by speed heroes and fearless riders, both of which are equipped with Calibre Heuer02, a TAG Heuer-made movement. This famous mechanical movement has a power reserve of more than 80 hours. One of the models is a perfect fusion of rose gold and carbon fiber. The black dial features rose gold-plated indexes and hands, and the lugs are crafted from 18K rose gold. The other features elegant blue elements on the lacquered sub-dial and central seconds, scale and small seconds at 6 o’clock. The carbon fiber lugs and the carbon fiber bezel are natural. Both luxury and contemporary watches are paired with perforated black rubber straps, limited to 350 and 750 respectively. Through the transparent sapphire case back, the glamorous CaliberHeuer02 movement is unobstructed. Modern, precise and reliable, with column wheels and vertical clutches, this mechanical movement is a model of advanced watchmaking.

The TAG Heuer Carrera series has evolved since it was first introduced in 1963, but always upholds its pure genes. The unique modular design and its association with the legendary Carrera Panamericana makes the Carrera series one of the brand’s most popular series. These three new carbon fiber watches are both stylish and functional, highlighting Tag Heuer’s outstanding position in the avant-garde watchmaking field.

Langue’s First Watch With Panasonic Timekeeping

About two years ago, Lange’s LANGE ZEITWERK watch, with its extraordinary design features, demonstrated its watchmaking philosophy that breaks through conventions and ushered in a new era. So it is no accident that ZEITWERK has become Lange’s first timepiece. Its mechanical design concept provides ideal prerequisites for an integrated self-oscillating gear train.
    When the digital disk is moving forward, it will release a huge force, so it can still provide enough power for other purposes after switching cycles. The stored energy becomes the power of the time signal device, which is used to tighten the spring to drive the two hammers. The hammers made of black polished stainless steel are arranged on the two sides of the small seconds dial of the dial. The left hammer strikes every hour, and the right hammer strikes every quarter of an hour. Two gongs are suspended in a recess between the dial and bezel for easy identification. Every quarter of an hour, the mechanism is activated, striking one of the gongs. Each quarter of the clock will be timed with high-pitched music, and every hour will be clocked with low-pitched music.
Black polished steel hammers, one on each side of the small seconds dial
    In the field of precision watchmaking, the clock hour is a very rare but absolutely practical function. You can choose to turn this function on or off at any time: press the button at 4 o’clock to keep the timekeeping device silent. Silent mode is easy to confirm, just watch the hammer go away from the gong through the sapphire crystal. In addition, when the crown is pulled out, the hammer will return to its original position, so that you can rotate the set time in both directions without activating or accidentally interrupting the time signal device.

LANGE ZEITWERK STRIKING TIME
    The LANGE ZEITWERK STRIKING TIME watch is equipped with a precision word display, showing a simple and clear layout style. The large hour and minute numbers set next to the display window make the time display clear. Driven by a patented constant-power escapement, the minute display gradually advances with a slight ticking sound and movements imperceptible to the naked eye. Until the whole hour, the three dials move forward one grid at a time, and the pointer will take a big step forward. Now, the clever movement of time is even more fascinating with the sound of music every 15 minutes.
   The LANGE ZEITWERK STRIKING TIME watch is equipped with a Lange-made L043.2 movement. It not only is equipped with hand-decorated delicate parts, the balance wheel is equipped with eccentric weights, and Lange’s proprietary balance spring is undoubtedly able to Meet the expectations of global watch fans for Lange watches. This self-timer watch is 44.2 mm wide. In addition to the white gold case with a black dial, a limited edition of 100 platinum cases with a rhodium-plated dial is also available.
    It is believed that Ludwig van Beethoven is famous all over the world due to the four-tone prelude to the middle horn of his fifth symphony (also known as the Symphony of Destiny). With innovative technical design and excellent timekeeping functions, the third masterpiece of the LANGE ZEITWERK series is as magical as it is bound to become the star of watchmaking.
