The top products of TAG Heuer Tag Heuer watches can always make great progress in the design concept, mechanical system and manufacturing process of Grand CARRERA Calibre 36 RS concept stopwatch. This Grand Carrera Calibre 36 RS goes a step further. Its original timing system can be as accurate as a tenth of a second, seemingly simple, but really stunning. This top-of-the-line sports watch made its mark in Basel, Switzerland in 2008, and is reloaded in the city today, becoming the focal point of light in the Grand Carrera exhibition.
Like every Grand Carrera watch, the Calibre 36 RS chronograph is also equipped with a ‘dial system’ to replace traditional sub-dials. Its design is inspired by the dashboard of the GT car. The turntable at 3 o’clock is used as a minute timer, while the 6 o’clock position is used to display the hours that have passed. From 8 o’clock to 10 o’clock, there is a small small window that is the second hand timer. Now look at its timing system. From a technical point of view, this is often the core part of a watch. It can wind up automatically and pass the inspection by the Swiss official observatory test organization (COSC for short). The oscillation frequency is 36,000 oscillations per hour (that is, 5 Hz per hour). Calibre 36 (the world famous Zenith El Primero) It has always ensured the accuracy of one tenth of a second, and in the timing system, this function can be displayed on the dial, simple and clear, and more eye-catching. The chronograph with tenths of accuracy is displayed on the front cover inside the dial. The top ring can be turned at ten o’clock, and there is a pointer in the middle of the display section to read out how much time has passed. At first glance, it may seem a bit complicated, but once you have such a watch, you will find it easy to operate.
The black dial of the Grand Carrera Calibre 36 RS Caliper Chronograph is at four to five o’clock, and there is a date display window with polished hands and hour markers, which are painted with night light substances and TAG Heuer logos. The most exciting part of the dial is the metal bridge connecting the two sub-dials. The finish of the lacquer is Geneva ripples.
The Grand Carrera Chronograph 43 mm bezel is made of polished stainless steel and PVD-coated metal titanium, and finally the entire surface is polished. The front cover is made of the same material and equipped with a speed tester to measure speed. The top ring at three o’clock is internally rotated. In addition, both sides of the dial are covered with a layer of sapphire to prevent grinding.
The TAG Heuer Grand Carrera Calibre 36 RS with stainless steel case can be equipped with a stainless steel strap or a stylish sports black leatherette strap. The titanium-coated version can be fitted with a black artificial leather or black alligator strap. This stopwatch can be worn in water and easily reaches a depth of 100 meters (330 feet).
