TAG Heuer presented the Carrera Chronograph Tourbillon Polychrome , a special edition of the premier complication model in the brand’s portfolio.
Based on the innovative Carrera Chronograph Tourbillon Nanograph presented in 2019, this model comes in a 45 mm case made of ultra-lightweight and resistant fine brushed black PVD Grade 5 titanium with a fixed carbon tachymeter bezel. Crown and push buttons are also made of black PVD Grade 5 titanium.
Protected by a domed, beveled sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment, the skeletonised dial surprises for its rainbow colours.
To achieve the smooth and sophisticated vibrant color gradient, TAG Heuer worked closely with a partner specialized in vacuum deposition PVD treatments, and the only supplier in the world to offer this breakthrough finish, Positive Coating. Metallic oxides are deposited in infinitely thin transparent layers and their controlled and minute variations of thickness (a few nanometers) create the final gradual color spectrum.
The rhodium-plated blue chronograph sub-counters appears at 3 and 9 o’clock with black-gold-plated polished hands while, at 6 o’clock, the multicolored tourbillon takes central stage. The applied indexes and hands are rhodium-plated, with Super-LumiNova on the hour and minute hands.
The black PVD grade 5 titanium screwed sapphire case back features a special engraving marking the limited release and reveals the in-house developed Calibre Heuer 02T COSC chronograph tourbillon which beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz) and offers a power reserve of 80 hours.
Water resistant to 100 metres / 330 feet, the new model is completed by a black strap in matte alligator leather with a rubber lining, finished with a sandblasted Grade 2 titanium folding clasp with double safety buttons and the TAG Heuer shield.
Limited to 150 pieces, the new TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Tourbillon Polychrome ref. CAR5A8AF.FC6415 has a suggested retail price of Euro 23,250. Be sure to check our list of the most expensive watches in the world.
