December 3, 2008 The newest member of TAG Heuer’s high-end Grand CARRERA watch collection, the Calibre 36 RS Caliper Chronograph features a COSC-certified* movement oscillating at 36,000 vibrations per hour and is the only automatic chronograph capable of both measuring and displaying 1/10 of a second intervals using an innovative rotating scale design.

With a 43mm, black titanium carbide-coated case and sharing the polished, beveled edges and antireflective sapphire crystal elements found throughout the collection, the sports car inspired Calibre 36 RS's design incorporates two “Black Gold” Rotating Systems indicating the chronograph minutes at 3 o’clock and the chronograph hours at 6 o’clock. The company's exclusive Rotating Scale (see video below) permits a precise reading of 1/10th of a second magnified 10X and the timepiece is finished by a new soft touch alligator strap with red stitching and red lining.

Unveiled as a concept at Baselworld earlier this year, the TAG Heuer Grand CARRERA Calibre 36 RS Caliper Chronograph recently took out the Sports category prize in the 2008 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.
