During the Geneva watch fair, SIHH, TAG Heuer unveiled a world premiere in watchmaking, and its newest innovation: a hairspring made of carbon composite invented, patented and produced by the avant-garde Swiss watchmaker.

The fascinating tourbillon feature of this timepiece bridges the gap between traditional craftsmanship and state-of-the-industry innovation. The nanoscopic (one million times smaller than a millimetre) hexagonal pattern of the hairspring's carbon-composite material is mirrored in the design of the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre Heuer 02T Tourbillon Nanograph. Aside from the carbon-composite hairspring, the most distinguishing feature of this chronometer certified chronograph is its multilayer dial and movement combination, which features sandblasted and fine-brushed hexagons on the movement plate visible through an open-worked dial. Stephane Bianchi, CEO of the LVMH Watchmaking Division and CEO of TAG Heuer, said: 'This new interpretation of the TAG Heuer Carrera with its advanced in-house technology underscores our legacy in achieving watchmaking excellence and proves that we remain true to our values of performance, disruption and avant-garde.'
