Since 1880, Jaeger-LeCoultre has been working to create more beautiful and accurate timepieces for women. In the 1920s, women’s watches were all the rage for their small size. However, the delicate size would lead to a reduction in reliability and accuracy. In order to take into account the technical connotation and elegant appearance, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Duoplan series watch with special double-layer movement configuration components came into being. In 1929, Calibre 101, the smallest movement in the series, shook the world with a rock-shattering posture. With a length of 14 mm, a width of 4.8 mm, a thickness of 3.4 mm, and a total weight of less than 1 gram, it still sits firmly on the throne of the smallest mechanical movement in history. In 1953, Queen Elizabeth II wore a jewellery watch equipped with the Jaeger-LeCoultre 101 movement on the coronation day. Its small size and exquisiteness seemed to stagnate even time, becoming an eternal classic in the history of watches and clocks. To this day, the compactness of the 101 movement is still ‘unprecedented.’

Among them, the Grande Reverso Lady Ultra Thin has a perfect proportion. The pure geometric line design is inspired by the Art Deco style, which makes the women’s wrists glamorous.
Today, Jaeger-LeCoultre in the 21st century can be described as infinitely creative and fruitful. It has perfectly blended excellent complex functions with the luxury of women’s watches. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous dating series women’s watch, with gorgeous design and exquisite craftsmanship, annotates women’s romantic dating with time, shows the free and individual personality charm of modern women, and brings more surprises to women through free combination . The date series watch is equipped with a smart day and night alternation, or with dazzling enamel painting, or a tourbillon to show the transcendence and eternity of female charm. The dazzling light of the diamond and the tender luster of the mother-of-pearl make the entire dial either dazzling or gentle and charming. Among them, the Rendez-Vous Night & Day date series shows the mysterious day and night changes at six o’clock, a delicately crafted dial, surrounded by a clear digital scale, showing a pure watchmaking style. Rather than a watch, this is a date with time. It is like the player of simultaneous light, grasping every moment with enthusiasm. It is accompanied by charming self-confidence and calmness every day.

Ultra Light, Retro, Innovative Tasting Tag Heuer 1887 Chronograph Watch

In recent years, while TAG Heuer has continued to promote the development of concept watches, it has also continuously integrated new technologies, new concepts and new designs into consumer product lines, and continuously improved the basic watches. Quality and style. This year, Tag Heuer specially launched a Carrera chronograph with a forward-looking concept. The watch is made of CMC (carbon-based composite material), showing a mysterious black appearance. The official watch model CAR2C90.FC6341, not much to say together to appreciate.

    In 1963, a year when racing was booming, Tag Heuer launched the famous series Calera, which was famous for its high-precision timekeeping. Since then, Carrera has become a classic sports watch series under the brand. Today, the Carrera family is constantly growing, and it is also constantly pursuing long-lasting classic designs and innovations. This Carrera 1887 chronograph, launched this year, completely follows the essence of the Carrera series, integrates innovative materials, and perfectly balances the retro style into a unique shape. This is a beautiful year in Carrera. Landscape.

Tag Heuer Carrera Cal.1887 chronograph

    Carrera 1887 chronograph is one of the classics in the field of chronographs. Tag Heuer re-innovates this year every year, constantly breaking through from the perspective of materials, case design, and dial style to create distinctive visual effects. This watch completely banned the original Arabic hour scale and hour markers, and changed to a large digital minute mark such as 05-60, highlighting the significance of the watch.

positive

    The watch has always been a bold change in the design of the crown and the chronograph button at 3 o’clock. This ingenious change is the first concept watch Mikrogirder used in 2012. This watch is based on Its accuracy is up to 1/2000 second and won the GPHG ‘Golden Pointer’ award of the year. Of course, this design is first and foremost loyal to the design of early chronograph pocket watches. The crown transposition allows the watch to be larger in size and the scales easier to read.

side

    Due to the black appearance of the watch itself and the polished mirror scales on the dial, the metallic scale dials are reflected in pure black at many angles. At the side angles, the three-dimensional dial can be seen very clearly. space. And this is inseparable from the help of the double-sided anti-glare sapphire glass. Under normal circumstances, the anti-glare glass will not be able to see the inner disk surface at such an angle.

Carbon-based composite case

    TAG Heuer’s special watch is characterized by the use of cutting-edge CMC carbon-based composite materials. This material is often used in the racing and aerospace industries. Its characteristics are light texture, no change in shape with temperature differences, strong resistance to abrasion. , Is a very good composite material. Of course, the application of such materials is costly, difficult to repair, and difficult to develop, and only a few brands use them.

Strap
    Paired with a watch, it is a leather strap specially treated by Tag Heuer. It is not as thin as a single layer of leather, but has a strong flexibility. It may be the result of filling more material than an ordinary strap. The slightly thicker strap matches the chronograph, and the sharp texture highlights the excellent strap quality.

dial
    In addition to the case, the watch face is also made of carbon-based composite material. The Tag Heuer logo is manually inlaid, the metal surface on the mirror polished surface is set, and the small seconds dial is directly cancelled at 6 o’clock. You can find out here by the small second hand. Indication of seconds. The outer ring of the dial is a tachymeter scale, which has become the standard configuration of the chronograph. In order to better read the time, the three pointer fingers for timing are all covered with a bright red coating.

Crown and buttons

    At the 12 o’clock position of the case, there are the winding time adjustment crown and chronograph start and stop buttons of the watch. After manual operation, I personally think that the operation of the crown and buttons is good, and the feel is not tight and loose, just right, but Since it is different from the original 3 o’clock operation habits, it takes time to adapt.

Titanium folding clasp
    Fixed on a leather strap, Tag Heuer uses a titanium metal material to make the buckle, which is also a very lightweight metal material that is widely used in industrial production and is also frequently used in watches.

Case back and Cal.1887 automatic chronograph movement

    The screw-fastened bottom case is also made of carbon-based composite material. Through the bottom case sapphire glass, you can clearly see the TAG Heuer Cal.1887 self-winding movement with a dark coating inside, the decoration of the movement There are Geneva stripe ripples, and the whole is full of deep mysterious texture.

Summary: The development of the Tag Heuer Carrera series chronographs has been developed for half a century, and many classic timepieces have been derived. With the brand’s continuous strengthening of this series of technological breakthroughs and concept innovations, Carrera chronographs have a good reputation in the watch industry Rising day by day, it has gradually become the most advantageous competitor for autonomous chronographs with prices within 50,000. The official price of this watch is more than 70,000, a large part of which is paying for new materials. As a professional chronograph watch, its outstanding craftsmanship and racing concept complement each other and constitute its core value.
