TAG Heuer SLR Calibre S Laptimer Chronograph for Avid Fans of Racing

Jun 03, 2008
The new TAG Heuer SLR Calibre S Laptimer Chronograph watch has incorporated the latest evolution of the highly-acclaimed TAG Heuer Calibre S electro-mechanical movement, an exclusive and patented TAG Heuer movement.

The advanced version of the revolutionary Calibre S has been created as a one-of-a-kind motorracing-inspired mechanism. The new ultra-accurate wrist chronograph, developed to correspond to the best expectations of most avid fans of racing, is a whole timekeeping system on the wrist with analog time indications display. The movement offers retrograde functions for 1/10th and 1/100th second intervals and a best lap indicator (up to 20 laps).

The bold construction of the stainless steel case measures 47 mm in diameter. The design of the case is characterized by the sports aesthetics and dynamic lines.

The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal is provided with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. Inspired by a race car, the controls of the TAG Heuer watch - the dual fluted crowns, and textured 45-degree pushpieces - enhance the ergonomic design and ultimate functionality.

The tachymeter bezel for measuring average times has titanium carbide finishing for greater durability and stealthy good looks. The timepiece boasts 100-meter water resistance.

The black or silver dial of the TAG Heuer SLR Calibre S Laptimer Chronograph features a vertical streak pattern. The dial is completed with three hand-applied semi-circular counters:
  • lap counter at 12 o'clock with Chrono mode indicator at 9:30 and Best Lap mode indicator at 2:30

  • 1/10th second retrograde counter at 4:30

  • 1/100th second retrograde counter at 7:30

You will also notice such details as hand-applied curved indexes, polished-finished hands, chronograph hands with red tips, luminescent markers on hands and indexes and an inner bi-directional turning bezel that is driven by the crown at 9 o'clock.

The TAG Heuer SLR Calibre S Laptimer Chronograph is the first SLR watch to be produced not as a limited edition. The timepiece will be available starting with October 2008.

The TAG Heuer watch goes on 5-row steel bracelet fitted with a solid steel folding clasp featuring SLR lettering and safety push buttons. It is also available on a black natural rubber strap with textures suggested by the lateral air intake of the SLR 722 car. The strap is fitted with a polished steel folding clasp with SLR lettering and safety push buttons.
