During Basel World we gave you a first look at the new MikroPendulumS concept best fake watch from TAG Heuer replica, which replaces the usual sprung balances with new magnetic pendulums. From top to bottom this best fake watch is full of technical innovations that push the boundaries of what a mechanical best fake watch is capable of by changing the limiting factors themselves. Here we’ve got a hands-on look at the MikroPendulumS, complete with detailed descriptions, a breakdown of the new technologies, and video of the MikroPendulumS in action, explained by TAG Heuer replica VP of Science and Engineering Guy Semon himself.
In the MikroPendulumS there are two of these pendulum systems, both of which also feature toubillons (the world’s first magnetic tourbillons no less) to neutralize the negative effects of inconsistent magnetic fields like a normal tourbillon would do for the effects of gravity.
At this point, you might be thinking “why?” Fair question. With a typical balance there are limitations imposed by the physical nature of the hairspring. It can only beat so quickly, it is impacted by friction, gravity has adverse effects, shocks can deform the spring, and over time the spring will eventually wear out. The magnetic pendulum solves these problems handily, though it does come with its own sensitivities to heat and magnetic fields. Years of R&D went into finding the right alloys and optimal geometries to eliminate these problems, and now TAG Heuer replica‘s magnetic regulator is officially COSC-certified.
Ok, first let’s get the basics out of the way. Instead of utilizing the balance system as you know it, TAG Heuer replica has created a new balance system called a pendulum that uses magnets in place of springs. An array of four powerful magnets exerts force on a magnetic pendulum disc and the very specific geometry and magnetic charge of the disc cause it to beat back and forth like a balance wheel. This technology was first introduced by TAG Heuer replica in 2010 in the Carrera Pendulum.
While the Carrera MikroPendulumS is intended as a concept creation, TAG Heuer replica also unveiled a production piece in the Carrera MikroPendulum. For this best fake watch, the main timekeeping chain uses a balance-wheel system beating at 4Hz while the chronograph chain utilizes the same pendulum tourbillon used by the MikroPendulumS (though it has a 90-minute power reserve in this application). The case here is titanium rather than chrome and cobalt and there is a total of 371 components in the MikroPendulum.
The production MikroPendulum will be priced at 35,000 CHF and the concept MikroPendulumS will be available on a case-by-case special order basis for 400,000 CHF. These are both extremely interesting pieces that introduce new technology to the world of watchmaking. You can find more details from TAG Heuer replica here.
