The luxury horologists at Switzerland's TAG Heuer used Baselworld 2013 to launch their latest watch-making breakthrough: the Carrera MikroPendulumS. Developed by their own in-house special team of scientists, engineers, and designers, the MikroPendulumS is the first-ever magnet-driven chronograph, capable of precision down to a 100th of a second, driven by a double magnetic tourbillon instead of the usual hairsprings in the movement. However, instead of hiding their work, Tag Heuer decided to integrate the 454 working components used to drive this watch as well as the pendulums into their beautifully designed watch face, with the whirring chronograph at the bottom left, joined by a power reserve meter, a second counter, and minute counter, all controlled by a crown placed at the top of the dial reminiscent of vintage stopwatches. The case itself has been forged by a chrome-cobalt alloy mix commonly used in aviation and medicine that is harder than titanium and fully biocompatible, finished with a hand-sewn, anthracite grey alligator strap.
