The TAG Heuer Replica MikroPendulumS, With Two Magnetic Tourbillons And No Hairsprings

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.

TAG Heuer Replica Smartwatch, the Carrera Connected

“Today is the marriage of Watch replica Valley and Silicon Valley.” So said Swiss watch industry icon and current CEO of TAG Heuer (and President of LVMH TAG Heuer replica division) Jean-Claude Biver, as he today presented the new TAG Heuer Carrera Smartwatch to the world, relating the whole event as a “wedding” of America and Switzerland and their respective contributions to the project. Biver introduced the TAG Heuer replica in his typical boisterous, gesticulating style, citing November 9, 2015 as “A milestone for the Swiss TAG Heuer Replica watch industry…the Swiss TAG Heuer replicaindustry has entered today…thanks to Intel, thanks to Google, thanks to TAG Heuer…the Swiss TAG Heuer Replica watch industry is connected to the future.”

The TAG Heuer replica Carrera Connected will sell for $1,500 and can be purchased online (link below) or in-store. Note that only black straps are available for online purchase; all other bracelet color options available in store. Interestingly, after two years any owner may trade it in to a Swiss TAG Heuer Replica watch retailer, and for an additional $1,500, receive a mechanical Carrera in its place.

The TAG Heuer replica is a true smartwatch with a full digital screen and Google’s Android OS. Though in form, it retains the look of a normal Swiss TAG Heuer Replica watch Carrera. The case is titanium, the screen is digital and responsive to touch. Three dial options digitally imitate the dial of a mechanical Carrera. And of course, a plethora of digital features that would be expected on a smartwatch platform (see link below to TAG’s dedicated website where you can learn more about specific functions). Only black bracelets available for online purchase. All other bracelet color options available in store.
Overall I must say it looks like a fairly compelling product. I also like what Breitling announced earlier this year with its Breitling B55 Connected TAG Heuer replica (though that may debut in another form…the Breilting Exospace is set to debut on December 16, 2015).

TAG Heuer Replica Launches TAG Heuer Connected Smartwatch with Intel & Google

The TAG Heuer replica Connected replica Watch was unveiled at a press conference at LVMH Tower (LVMH is the parent company of TAG Heuer replica), hosted by Jean-Claude Biver, CEO of TAG Heuer replica & President of the LVMH Group’s Watches Division, accompanied by Brian Krzanich, CEO of Intel Corporation, and David Singleton, VP of Engineering for Android at Google.

As per Biver’s directive that it “be a connected watch but not look like a connected watch,” TAG Heuer replica has developed three digital watch dials (or “watch faces”), all of which feature the immediately recognizable design codes of TAG Heuer’s Carrera collection, including the hands, index, counters, date window and minute track. Wearers can choose from a chronograph dial, three-hand dial and GMT dial, all of which display the date and are available in a choice of three colors (black, deep blue or pearl white). Also, unlike smartwatches such as the Apple Watch, the digital hands and indexes remain visible at all times, even when the watch is in ambient energy-saving mode.

Here are the basics:
The watch — officially dubbed the TAG Heuer replica Connected Watch with Intel Inside — has a 46-mm-diameter case made from grade 2 titanium, making it lighter and more resistant to impacts than a case made from other traditional watchmaking materials such as steel or gold. It comes on a textured black rubber strap (six other colors – red, blue, white, orange, green and yellow – are available, sold separately) with a deployant buckle also made of grade 2 titanium The watch — which is available for sale at more than 100 TAG Heuer replica boutiques and 150 carefully selected retailers across the world (including 20 retailers in the United States) as of today, November 9 — is priced at $1,500.

TAG Heuer Connected and Carrera
TAG Heuer replicaworked closely with Intel and Google to create a watch that combined connectivity and computing intelligence with Swiss watchmaking heritage. The watch features an Intel Atom processor Z34XX and runs the Android Wear platform. Intel engineered the intelligence inside the watch to optimize performance and enable a multitude of connectivity options including audio streaming, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, as well as allow users to harness the full range of features offered by the Android Wear operating system.
Thousands of Android applications are already available for the TAG Heuer replica Connected watch user to download. The key applications, currently used by millions, such as Google Fit, Google Translate, Google Maps and Google Search with your voice are already available on the watch, and show you information at a glance. The watch can also be easily synced with a phone running either on Android 4.3+ or iOS 8.2+. It is charged using a contact charger — simply place the watch on top to recharge it — and carries a two-year warranty, like other TAG Heuer replica watches.
