Tag Heuer Calibre 360

Avant-Garde Daringness in motion: The TAG Heuer Calibre 360 Concept Chronograph
The first ever 1/100th of a second mechanical wrist chronograph. TAG Heuer, the world leader in prestigious chronographs since 1860, which has set several major milestones in Swiss chronograph history, is presenting at Baselworld 2005 the most accurate mechanical timepiece ever crafted, the Calibre 360 Concept Chronograph. The Calibre 360 Concept Chronograph is the first mechanical wrist chronograph to measure and display time to 1/100th of a second, thanks to the exceptionally high frequency of its balance wheel, which oscillates at 360,000 beats per hour, 10 times faster than any other chronograph a rate that until now was considered impossible. More than ever, with this quantum leap in mechanical watchmaking accuracy, TAG Heuer asserts its unique know-how and reaffirms its motto: Swiss avant-garde since 1860.
