(Tag Heuer Monaco Concept 24 Chronograph)

The NEW Tag Heuer Monaco Concept 24 Chronograph, one of the Baselworld 2009 innovations. It features the blue and orange Gulf sign, which was the mythic Steve McQueens team.

The Monaco Concept 24 Chronograph is the latest groundbreaking. It is based on the mythic Monaco. The watch features an incredible high-tech unique tubular design which, together with extreme shock-protecting components, were both inspired by Le Mans endurance race cars. The TAG Heuer Calibre 36 movement inside the oversized (40.5mm) black PVD-coated case is suspended within a steel-tube housing very much like a race car’s driver’s protective cockpit cage and visible through the dial face and the sapphire crystal caseback.


(Tag Heuer Monaco Concept 24 Chronograph)

The new Monaco Concept 24 Chronograph components were insulated against shock and torque by a composite filter material used in aerospace and auto racing. Its large-faced, black-textured dial bears an oversize “24″ at 12 o’clock, in honour of the 24 of Le Mans, and the iconic blue and orange livery of Gulf Oil – the same colours TAG Heuer Ambassador Steve McQueen wore in his 1970 film classic, Le Mans.

Water resistant to 100 metres, The Steve McQueen’s new model watch contains anti-reflective double-sided treatment on the curved sapphire scratch-resistant crystal glass, which is TAG Heuer’s R&D team’s most daring creation to date.

(Steve McQueen)

He was an enthusiastic racer of both motorcycles and cars. While he studied acting, he supported himself partly by competing in weekend motorcycle races and bought his first motorcycle with his winnings. He is recognized for performing many of his own aerial tricks, especially the mainstream of the stunt driving during the high-speed chase scene in Bullitt. In addition, McQueen also designed and patented a bucket seat for race cars.

He found out he had lung cancer, and with only two months to live he and his wife went to Mexico for treatment. At the Mexican clinic, he underwent an agonizing three-month regimen of animal cell injections and was taking over 100 vitamins a day. Still, his body continued to weaken. He had surgery to remove an abdominal tumor and soon after that it was all over for the celebrated actor.

Graham launches the NEW Chronofighter Trigger Tourbillograph

.


(Graham Chronofighter Trigger Tourbillograp)

Extremely well known as “the father of the chronograph”, George Graham (1673-1751) has also been the man who had great ideas and invented the first wall chronograph or mercury pendulum.
Commissioned by the Greenwich Royal Observatory to create the master watch used by the astronomers, Graham became the first and great watchmaker of eighteenth century named by the Royal society. To continue with this spirit of extraordinary innovations and technical ability, Graham is nowadays a contemporary firm of watches dedicated to those who are enthusiastic about mechanic arts.

Graham debuts the Chronofighter Trigger Tourbillograph

Four years ago, Graham decided to make a timepiece in order to pay tribute to the genius of its namesake, famous British watchmaker George Graham. To achieve this goal, the brand joined with well-known movement manufacturer La Joux-Perret (with whom it partnered on the development of Graham’s chronograph foudroyante).
The result of years of making their best innovations, we are able to enjoy the result: the Automatic Chronofighter Trigger Tourbil-lograph, a combination of tourbillon and chronograph with a unique ‘British eccentric’ off-centre tourbillon.

The movement powering this timepiece is the Graham Caliber G1780, a tourbillon with column-wheel chronograph, known as ‘roue À colonne’ in French. Available in a 46mm 18 carat 5N red gold case, the new Tourbillograph features a domed sapphire crystal on the front and a flat see-through back. The frequency of its movement is 28,800, while the spiral, balance, escapement wheels and anchor are reinforced with an Incabloc anti-shock system. The Tourbillograph’s tourbillon cage weighs just 0.485 grams and is made of 48 pieces.
The Automatic Chronofighter Trigger Tourbil-lograph comes in five variations – Ruthenium, Havana, Raven Black, Carbon Black and All Black.

The Omega Co-Axial Ploprof 1200M. Omega’s 2009 launching timepieces.

.

(Omega Co-Axial Ploprof 1200M)



In 1970 Omega launched a watch created and specially designed for withstanding the crushing pressures endured by divers working deep below the ocean’s surface. The Seamaster 600, also-called ‘Ploprof’ (the acronym formed from the first letters of plongeurs professionnels) was one of the roughest, robust and seaworthy divers’ wristwatches ever manufactured.

In 2009, Omega is introducing an updated version of the classic and instantly recognizable Omega Seamaster 600 wristwatch. Equipped with a Co-Axial calibre 8500, the new Ploprof 1200M is, as the name suggests, is surprisingly water-resistant to
1200 metres (4000 feet). It also deviously combines its ancestor’s famous features with the brand’s state-of-the-industry Co-Axial technology for its movement.

Omega’s 2009 launching timepieces: Co-Axial Ploprof 1200M. The Moonwatch’s 40th anniversary.

.

(Omega Speedmaster)

Omega Speedmaster was the watch that, on Buzz Aldrin’s wrist, reached the moon accompanied by Neil Armstrong, who was also equipped with the same watch. The electronic timing system was playing up that much on board, that Armstrong left his watch aboard the Lunar Module.
Since that specific moment in which they stepped onto the moon’s surface at 02:56 GMT on the July 21, 1969, Omega’s Speedmaster professional chronograph became known as the ‘Moonwatch’ around the globe.
This year, as is it Apollo 11’s 40th Anniversary, Omega has launched a Limited Edition of the Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch. This unique timepiece features the same movement used in the original Speedmaster Professional Moon Watch, its famous calibre 1861. With black dial as the original Moonwatch, but with the small seconds sub dial at 9 o’clock featuring Apollo 11’s famous mission patch: an eagle descending to the lunar surface with an olive branch representing peace. Also, its hour, minute and the red-tipped chronograph seconds hands are coated with SuperLumiNova. The minute and hour chronograph counter hands are white and the brushed, rhodium-plated small seconds hand is in relief to the medallion on the counter.
On its dial, the classic ‘Omega Speedmaster Professional”, but with the 02.56 GMT legend is displayed in red.
The Apollo 11 ‘Eagle’ mission patch is stamped on the caseback with the words, Limited Edition number and ‘July 21, 1969’, the date in which the astronauts first stepped onto the moon’s surface.
