Caliber Heuer 02t Tourbillon Nanography Nano Watch Creates A New Level Of Watchmaking Craftsmanship

During the Geneva Watch & Clock Fair, Swiss pioneer watch brand TAG Heuer displayed its latest innovation for the first time: a carbon composite spring that created the history of the global watchmaking industry. This brand-new hairspring independently developed by the brand and patented and put into production has been used in Heuer 02T’s self-produced movement. The movement is equipped with a tourbillon device and is certified by the COSC Swiss official observatory testing agency.

   This amazing timepiece showcases Tag Heuer’s extraordinary watchmaking capabilities and is the representative of the new generation of tourbillon watches. The movement of this new watch uses a hairspring made of carbon composite material made of gas, replacing the well-known permanent elastic alloy hairspring and silicon hairspring.
   Stéphane Bianchi, CEO of the watchmaking department of Rovixuan Group and CEO of TAG Heuer, said: ‘This watch is a new interpretation of the TAG Heuer Carrera series, in which the superb technology applied highlights our excellence The watchmaking tradition is a testament to our values ​​of performance, disruption and pioneering spirit. ‘

   The fascinating tourbillon in this watch combines traditional watchmaking techniques with industry-leading innovations. Thanks to the exquisite structure and beautiful shape, among the complications that watch enthusiasts are attracted to, the tourbillon is breathtaking, and only a few watchmakers have mastered this technology.
   The TAG Heuer Carrera series has been continuously updated since it was first introduced in 1963, but it always adheres to its pure DNA. The unique modular design and close connection to motorsport have made it one of the brand’s most popular collections.

Unique design
   The new carbon composite hairspring uses nano-grade materials (nanometers are one millionth of a millimeter). The hexagonal structure of this material is presented in a pattern form in the Calibre Heuer 02T tourbillon NANOGRAPHY nano watch. Under design. In addition to the carbon composite spring, the most significant feature of this observatory-certified chronograph is its multi-layer dial and movement combination. Fine sandblasted hexagonal patterns appear on the movement plate and the black PVD-treated rotor, and are clearly visible through the hollow dial and sapphire case back.
   The watch is decorated with dazzling neon green in many places, including the lettering on the aluminum bridge and the tourbillon movement, reminiscent of the classics of the fine watchmaking industry in the past. The platinum-inlaid aluminum alloy balance wheel is eye-catching, and the mark coated with SuperLuminova® fluorescent coating ensures that the movement is clearly visible day and night.

   Guy Bove, Product Director of TAG Heuer, also said: ‘We want to showcase the amazing technical capabilities of the brand in terms of engineering and research and development with this Carrera watch with a new skeleton tourbillon. Just like its predecessor, Carlisle The Calibre Heuer 02T Tourbillon NANOGRAPHY nano watch successfully integrates the iconic features of this series for more than 50 years, integrating modern high-tech, visual aesthetics and precise and elegant proportions, bringing subversion to the fine watchmaking industry. The power of sex. ‘

New generation hairspring
   As the core of a mechanical watch, a hairspring is the most difficult part to manufacture. Even small size deviations will affect the overall accuracy of the watch. Behind the invention of this new hairspring design is a team of mathematicians, physicists and chemists from Tag Heuer. Carbon composite hairspring not only shocked the traditional watchmaking world, but also enhanced the performance of TAG Heuer models equipped with chronometer-certified movements. The Calibre Heuer 02T Tourbillon NANOGRAPHY nanometer watch is a pioneer model equipped with a carbon composite hairspring, an innovative material.

   The main advantages of TAG Heuer carbon composite hairspring:
   The lightweight, low-density hairspring is hardly affected by gravity and vibration. In tests conducted by TAG Heuer Labs, the watch was subjected to a 5,000-gram impact and dropped from a height of 1 meter to a hard surface-the metal hairspring was bent and deformed, the silicon hairspring was broken and broken, and the carbon composite hairspring was intact.
   The structure of the carbon composite material facilitates concentric oscillations and improves the accuracy of the watch.
Carbon composite hairsprings are assembled with inner stakes during production; usually, small parts of this type that are fixed to the balance shaft in metal hairsprings require complex assembly at a later stage, which affects accuracy.
   The carbon composite hairspring is completely anti-magnetic, which solves the problem that the accuracy of the watch is reduced when it is exposed to a magnetic field.
   The combination of a carbon composite balance spring and an aluminum alloy balance achieves excellent performance in adapting to temperature changes and aeroelasticity.
   The hairspring is exclusively manufactured by TAG Heuer and is designed and produced entirely in its laboratory in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
   Guy Sémon, director of the Tag Heuer Institute, described the importance of this technology: ‘The development of this hairspring took years to improve the performance and accuracy of mechanical watches. Innovative inventions by the Tag Heuer Academy Like a ladder, one innovation always leads to the next, and it continues to climb upwards. The carbon composite hairspring is the first step we take and leads the process of continuous improvement. ‘
   Pioneering the history of using carbon composite material structure for hairspring, and launching the stunning Calera series Calibre Heuer 02T tourbillon NANOGRAPHY nano watch is the perfect example of Tag Heuer’s legendary watchmaking brand insisting on the road of innovation. Guided by the pioneering watchmaking tradition, Tag Heuer has entered a new era of forward-looking inventions and will bring the precision of mechanical watches to a new peak.
