    Surprise, Tag Heuer Make History Again


    There are certain watches on the market
    that are in a whole different world from the rest. The kinds of watches(include
    fashion watch like Michael
    ) that make people pay thousands of dollars for just to say
    that they own one. With the kinds of things Tag Heuer has done for the watch
    industry, they have set their place in history. Despite all of the
    contributions and inventions they have come forward with, Tag Heuer is now
    taking it to the mechanical world.

    After many years of pushing the quartz
    movement to the extreme, Tag Heuer mechanical movement is just making way. With
    the Monaco V4 Concept watch, Tag Heuer waches has
    been working and crafting this watch together starting just a few years ago.
    The idea came about with their involvement in motor sports, which has sparked
    the development of the Monaco V4 Concept watch.


    This mechanical movement watch derived the
    V4 from the movement of the four barrels. The four barrels are mounted on a
    v-like shaped main plate at a 15-degree angle, much like that of the cylinders
    in a motor racing engine.


    There are four parts to the watch that have
    made it a mechanical movement watch; transmission, friction, torque and power.
    In building the watch, there were several firsts that Tag Heuer approached to
    get it up and running. Because of all of the mechanical movements that
    correlate with that of a high-engine motor racing car, several designers,
    watchmakers and engineers worked together to build this revolutionary watch.


    In the process, TAG
     invented the first patented drive-belt transmission in a
    watch movement. The original mechanical movement watch ran off of pinions,
    which was replaced with the relay of 13 drive belts. With these 13 drive belts
    and the linking and turning of two axes in the same direction, it is much more
    efficient than by means of an intermediate wheel.


    Another first with this mechanical movement
    watch was the linear oscillating mass. The linear oscillating mass replaces the
    oscillating weight that was traditionally used to wind an automatic watch
    movement. This helps make the rotating movement run much more efficient and


    If that weren't enough, this Tag Heuer also
    reduces most of the friction that is apparent in many other watches. This is
    made possible with the 39 micro ball races that help minimize friction in the
    power transmission system. This helps replace and upgrade the traditional use
    of synthetic red rubies.


    The list of firsts for the Monaco V4
    Concept watch could go on forever. This Tag Heuer watch has truly
    revolutionized the mechanical movement watch world forever.
