The V4, Mikrograph, Mikrotimer, Mikrogirder and now Mikropendulum are, respectively, the first watch with a belt-driven transmission, the first chronograph beating at 50 Hz (360, 000 vibrations/hour), the first chronograph beating at 500 Hz (tag heuer carrera cv2010.ba0794 replica), a chrono beating at 1, 000 Hz (7. 2 million vib/h) and winner of the Aiguille d'Or at the 2012 Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève, and the first ever magnetic escapement.
TAG Heuer has certainly lived up to its name of late, TAG being an acronym of Technologie d'Avant-Garde. And it's all down to Guy Sémon, Vice President of Science and Engineering at the head of the brand's R&D.
