Baselworld 2013-tag Heuer’s First Revolutionary Carbon Composite Watch Carrera Cmc Concept Chronograph

TAG Heuer’s new Carrera Carbon Matrix Composite (CMC) carbon composite concept chronograph is the most forward-looking Carrera chronograph created by Jack Heuer inspired by motor sports in 1963 New interpretation of vision.

   This new work is made of carbon composite materials developed by Formula One and the aerospace industry, and is equipped with the brand’s own chronograph movement. It has light weight and excellent anti-wear properties. The case, case back and bezel are made of abrasion-resistant carbon composite materials, taking watch design and contemporary watchmaking technology to a higher level.

   The TAG Heuer Carrera CMC carbon composite concept chronograph is inspired by the first Carrera sports chronograph for professional racers and motor sports fans. Based on a stopwatch, the latter won the highest honor (Golden Hand Award) (Aiguille d’Or) at the Geneva Watch Awards in November 2012.

   TAG Heuer Carrera CMC carbon composite concept chronograph asymmetric ‘bull head’ case and blade lug design, based on Mikrogirder chronograph, crown and chronograph button at 12 o’clock, similar to traditional chronograph stopwatch; of course The biggest difference is naturally CMC carbon composites and extremely sophisticated micro-fabrication technologies, both of which are the first in the watchmaking industry.

   New production technology: accuracy, durability and lightness to the next level: TAG Heuer Carrera CMC carbon composite concept chronograph case, case back and bezel, made of carbon fibers arranged in the same matrix, each layer of this reinforced carbon fiber is only With a thickness of 0.007 mm, it is made into three-dimensional parts through cutting-edge technology, and then heated and compressed. The chemical reaction in it transforms the thin layer of soft and elastic carbon fiber into an ultra-strong part shape.

   This cutting-edge technology has so far been mainly used in Formula One racing and aerospace industries, but it is conducive to the processing of complex and fine parts for watch making. It has almost no shape restrictions and has perfect accuracy. For example, the watch of this chronograph The construction of the ring part is very delicate; in addition, this chronograph has been tested by TAG Heuer for strict quality. It is more durable than ordinary watches, with almost no scratches and wear, and is extremely lightweight, making it more comfortable to wear on the wrist. The TAG Heuer Carrera CMC carbon composite concept chronograph is equipped with TAG Heuer’s first self-made CALIBRE 1887 movement, which took 4 years to develop and is an integrated column-wheel chronograph movement consisting of 320 parts, including the Edouard Heuer The vibration gear technology, invented in 1887, revolutionized the watchmaking industry to mark the 150th anniversary of the brand’s founding.
