Swiss luxury watch brand TAG Heuer unveils its new 21st century integrated column-wheel automatic chronograph movement in a new generation of the Tag Heuer Carrera 1887 Chronograph replica watch, the legendary sports chronograph series designed by Jack Heuer in 1964 and an icon of refined taste ever since.
This incessant drive has made the Swiss brand the unrivalled leader in high-end chronographs — one of mechanical watchmaking’s most sophisticated and demanding complications. Examples of TAG Heuer’s prowess in this field are legion, from the 1/100th-of-a-second Mikrograph stopwatch in 1916 to the 2006 Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix winning Calibre 360, the first mechanical wrist chronograph to beat 360,000/hour.For five generations, TAG Heuer has marshalled its resources and know-how in a concerted effort to master the tiniest fractions of time.
To strengthen its longstanding leadership and continued growth in luxury chronographs, TAG Heuer needed further differentiation among the “engines” powering its masterpieces, more variety of performance and construction, and an unlimited access to high-volume movements. This is why, in early 2006, TAG Heuer started working on the design and development of the Calibre 1887, an automatic chronograph movement of superlative reliability and sophistication. Unveiled at the McLaren Technology Centre in December 2009, this powerful 21st century engine is now being launched commercially in an all-new fake Tag Heuer Carrera chronograph of stunning design and performance.
The tachymeter scale on the satin-polished bezel identifies its motor-racing heritage, and the high-end finish and optimized proportions of the silver and black dial distinguish it instantly as a grand classic in the Carrera tradition. Water-resistant to 100 metres, its unique folding bracelet has double, lateral-pressure pushbuttons for greater security, ease of use and greater comfort.
Today, this mastery is epitomized by TAG Heuer’s unparalleled line-up of 7 mechanical chronograph movements (Calibre 11 and 12 developed with Dubois-Depraz, Calibre 16 and 17 from ETA, new in-house Calibre 1887 unveiled in December 2009, Calibre 36 developed with Zenith and Calibre 360).
Special luminescent markers on the hands and after the indexes ensure cockpit-fast legibility in all light conditions. Pure and sober in design, with the same great legibility as its 1964 ancestor, it is supercharged by the all-new chronograph movement beating inside. Simply stated, the Swiss-made replica TAG Heuer Carrera 1887 Chronograph raises the bar of refined technology and design.
