Every year, TAG Heuer strives to put out something new and exciting, and 2019 is no different. Yesterday, the luxury horology house unveiled an impressive and futuristic-looking timepiece called the Carrera Calibre Heuer 02T Tourbillon Nanograph, which contains a state-of-the-art carbon hairspring – a world first.
This latest release is an evolution of the brand’s renowned Carrera Heuer 02T, which sent shockwaves through the industry in 2016 by virtue of being the most affordable Swiss tourbillon chronograph ever created. The 45mm case and overall look of this new timepiece clearly echo the Heuer 02T, but there are a few differences.
TAG Heuer claims its new lightweight, low-density carbon-composite hairspring means the movement is virtually unaffected by gravity or shock, and completely anti-magnetic. What’s more, the structure of carbon inspired the Carrera Calibre Heuer 02T Tourbillon Nanograph’s design, with hexagon motifs found both on its dial and on the rotor. A black PVD titanium case and yellow accents complete this watch’s bold look ($25,500 in our US store).
