TAG Heuer Carrera Carbon Matrix Composite Concept Chronograph
TAG Heuer’s new Carrera Carbon Matrix concept is an ultra light & super resistant and entirely developed with carbon matrix composite. Inspired by the iconic motorsport watch designed by Jack Heuer in 1963, this new concept features the same quality carbon composition as used in formula 1 and aerospace industry. The case, back and bezel are made from thin carbon fibers organized as on a isotropic matrix. Slightly scratch-tears and water stains not only add the unique texture to the case but also demonstrates the toughness of design. The reinforced fabric, which is only 0.007mm thick, is structured to build the components into 3D form, then heated and compacted to transform by a means of a chemical reaction the soft, flexible layers into a super rigid form. This masterpiece is powered by an integrated column-wheel chronograph movement containing 320 parts, which was develop after four years of working.
