TAG Heuer Grand CARRERA Calibre 36 RS2 Caliper Chronograph Ti2

Apr 04, 2009
Following the amazing success of the TAG Heuer Grand CARRERA Calibre 36 RS Caliper Concept Chronograph unveiled at Baselworld 2008, this year TAG Heuer has created its worthy successor with a bold case crafted in titanium - the Grand CARRERA Calibre 36 RS2 Caliper Chronograph Ti2. The ultra high-tech timepiece was presented at Baselworld 2009.

The new watch is animated by the TAG Heuer Calibre 36 RS automatic movement. The COSC-chronometer-certified movement incorporates two Rotating Systems that indicate the chronograph minutes at 3 o’clock and chronograph hours at 6. The linear permanent seconds are presented at 9 o’clock. The date window is found at 4:30.

Featuring the above mentioned indications, the black dial of the watch is completed with hand-applied curved faceted indexes with double finishings, the polished hands with polished facets and luminescent markers and a red chronograph seconds hand. The dial is protected by a double antireflective curved sapphire crystal.

The case of the Grand CARRERA Calibre 36 RS2 Caliper Chronograph Ti2 measures 43mm in diameter. It is crafted from grade 2 Titanium (Ti2), a remarkably resistant and biocompatible pure metal, two times lighter than steel.

The same material is used for all the case components, including the big crown with a red line at 10 o’clock, fine-brushed with polished facets push buttons, curved faceted polished horns, a fine-brushed and polished bezel, a screw-in crown at 3 o’clock, as well as the case back sealed by six screws. The timepiece, reviewed by watches.infoniac.com, is 100-meter water-resistant.

The crown at 10 o’clock is used for activating the Caliper Rotating Scale that provides magnified 10X reading to 1/10th of a second. The bezel features the tachymeter scale.

The TAG Heuer watch is secured to the wrist on a stylish black rubber strap or a masculine titanium bracelet.

The TAG Heuer Grand CARRERA Calibre 36 RS2 Caliper Chronograph Ti is expected to be available starting with September 2009.
