TAG Heuer Grand CARRERA Calibre 36 RS Caliper Concept Chronograph

Apr 04, 2008
Grand CARRERA Calibre 36 RS Caliper Concept Chronograph is another revolutionary timepiece to be revealed by TAG Heuer at Baselworld 2008. The watch, equipped with column wheel movement, is destined to become the first mechanical automatic chronograph able to measure and display 1/10th of a second. The COSC-certified chronometer movement is beating at an amazing frequency of 36, 000 vibrations per hour. The unique mechanism can be admired through a tinted double sapphire crystal.

TAG Heuer has performed a top-level engineering feat! The central seconds hand ticks off 1/10th of a second intervals, providing at-a-glance readings of the greatest precision.

TAG Heuer's world premier is housed in a stylish 43-mm case crafted in black titanium case with carbide coating. Calibre 36 RS movement offers power reserve and two 'Black Gold' Rotating Systems necessary for indicating the chronograph minutes at 3 o'clock, chronograph hours at 6 o'clock, and Linear Second at 9 o'clock. The major design innovation is revealed through the way of how this information is displayed. The brand has elaborated a one-of-a-kind Rotating Scale that allows a precise reading of 1/10th of a second - it is magnified 10X!

The case of the watch has incorporated sleek chronograph buttons, with design reminding the pedals of a GT car. The TAG Heuer Grand CARRERA Calibre 36 RS Caliper Concept Chronograph is secured to the wrist on a stunning innovative titanium carbide-coated and rubber bracelet.

The timepiece celebrates the remarkable cooperation well-established between TAG Heuer and Japanese Car Designer Ken Okuyama who designed legendary GT cars, Ferrari Enzo and Maserati Quattroporte.

Now Ken Okuyama has astonished the world with his limited edition super-sleek K.O. 7 sports car. The interior of the car was inspired by the TAG Heuer Grand Carrera. The unique Grand CARRERA Calibre 36 RS Caliper Concept Chronograph was mounted on the dashboard of the futuristic, high-performance car. Moreover, the K.O. 7 is eco-compatible as it is designed while using advanced light-weight materials, including aluminum, titanium and carbon, also resulting in a remarkable horsepower to weight relationship.

TAG Heuer shares Ken Okuyama's vision as the brand's chronographs are also produced from innovative light-weight materials of the top quality. The same as the K.O. 7, the powerful proportions of TAG Heuer watches fascinate the eye, while offering supreme refinement, beautiful craftsmanship, and meticulous attention to detail. TAG Heuer- Ken Okuyama collaboration demonstrates something in common between the car and watch industries: continuous quest for higher quality, performance and design innovations provided by the successful use of new technologies.

The K.O. 7 was unveiled at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show along with K.O. 8 coupe in March in presence of Ken Okuyama and Jean-Christophe Babin, TAG Heuer President and CEO.

I have just bought a TAG Heuer Grand CARRERA caliber 36.
I got a great deal on it.
I was curious to know if it was a TAG Heuer Grand CARRERA caliber 36 RS?
It doesen't have an RS after the 36 and is identical to the abve picture but even in that picture you cannot see an RS beside the 36.
Any tips would be helpful.
Is there any other websites with detailed pictures and information?

I bought a TAG Heuer Grand Carrera automatic watch a few months ago. I wanted a classic watch that would provide reliable timekeeping for an age. Naturally, watches from the range are quite expensive, I acquired mine for $ 2,300. My watch is really handsome. Attractive style. It is classic but with a modern look, so it stands out from older models. It�s really easy to adjust the time and date. I'm not an expert in precision timekeeping, but my Grand Carrera loses very little time. It�s also absolutely easy to change the bracelet, one can do it using a jeweler's screwdriver. Overall, it�s a great watch that I would highly recommend. And I admire this Grand CARRERA Calibre 36 RS!

The Grand CARRERA Calibre 36 RS Caliper Concept Chronograph is really fantastic! It has recently won the prestigious Grand Prix de l'Horlogerie de Geneve. The same TAG Heuer watch got The Most Successful Design Award 2008 in China , and in Mexico at the Salon Internacional de Alta Relojeria 2008. So many awards for one watch!

I got a Tag Heuer Grand Carrera as a birthday present half a year ago. I didn't write a review at once as I wanted to check if I still felt the same way about the piece as I did when I just got it. And now I'm absolutely sure - I love this watch. It is created in classic styling and gives a great look and feel. The bracelet was a little large when I got it, so I had to take the watch to the local jeweler and he had easily removed a few links. My Tag nicely fits any occasion. I simply love it.

so many details on one dial - it seems too agglomerated to me, still Tag Heuer excellent as ever

Don't know what strikes me more - TAG Heuer Grand CARRERA or K.O. 7? Cool!
