Tourbillon Movement

Offering the very best in accuracy, the tourbillon movement is a revolutionary piece of craftsmanship that is reserved for only the finest chronographs.

Black Skeleton Dial

The elegant black opalin dial features a skeleton design, displaying the complex and intricate inner workings of the watch.

Three Counters

At 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock sit three rhodium plated counters which serve different purposes, such as the alternate finishing hour chronograph counter at 9 o’clock.

Black Leather Strap

The matte black dial of the watch is fastened with a black leather strap, giving an elegant finish to this timepiece, displaying its superior quality and style.

The Tourbillon Complication

Designing and creating a tourbillon mechanism takes great skill and precision as it is so delicate, weighing in at under a gram. Despite its size, there are usually more than 40 parts that go into this tiny mechanism, so it must be made from lightweight materials such as titanium.

The purpose of the tourbillon is to maintain ultimate accuracy as it counters the effects of gravity on a hairspring by keeping it in constant rotation. As the tourbillon slowly rotates, it prevents the escapement from suffering from positional errors and keeps the timepiece working accurately.

Despite the low price of the TAG Heuer Carrera OT2 Tourbillon Watch in comparison to other tourbillon watches, the quality is still supreme. By cutting down the cost of tourbillon manufacturing, TAG Heuer have created the cheapest Swiss-made tourbillon on the market, making this revolutionary movement accessible. With such an affordable price attached to this striking watch, the prestige of a tourbillon can now be enjoyed by more timepiece aficionados than ever before. Before TAG Heuer released the Carrera Tourbillon, you could expect to pay £65,000+ for a tourbillon, making it inaccessible to countless watch lovers who can now access this revolutionary movement.

TAG Heuer and Carrera

Despite its modern and revolutionary appearance, TAG Heuer’s history stretches back over 150 years as Edouard Heuer opened his first workshop in 1860. This rich history and forward-thinking culture has allowed the watchmakers to develop some of the finest, modern watches on the market.

TAG Heuer has long been associated with motor sports, with ambassadors such as Steve McQueen, Ayrton Senna and Alexander Rossi. In fact, the Carrera collection takes inspiration directly from the sport. The first Carrera watch was created in 1963 in tribute to the Carrera Panamericana auto race – the most dangerous in the world.

The Carrera collection reflects the speed, strength and risk-taking nature of the famous auto race. Blending function and fashion, the collection celebrates the thrill of the race at the same time as delivering the simplicity and utility necessary for its application.
