A Swiss made tourbillon watch at less than CHF 15,000?
Tourbillon watches are typically pricey. They can infrequently be found beneath Swiss Francs 60,000 with most of models being at a bargain at costs which surpass Swiss Francs 100,000.
It is straightforward why the declaration that, toward the finish of 2015, Tag Heuer will dispatch a tourbillon chronograph evaluated at simply Swiss Francs 14’900 created enormous astonishment.
In view of the measured case presented with the Carrera Caliber Heuer 01 model , the future Tag Heuer Tourbillon Chronograph will highlight a COSC-confirmed programmed development beating at 28,800 vibrations each hour and offering 64 hours of force hold. This development will be delivered in Chevenez, at the creation site initially bound to the CH80 development . Tag Heuer’s CEO Jean-Claude Biver expects deals of 500 to 1,000 units each year for this model.
Obviously, most watchmakers won’t be cheerful about this move as it would decrease the eminence of tourbillon watches (and net revenues). Then again, it is a real aspiration for any Research and Development group attempting to lessen the passage of advances.
Without a doubt, this will be an intriguing issue in the second 50% of the year.
