During 2 days and at the "Avant-Garde" and prestigious racing track in Le Castellet, South of France, 10 top European watch journalists became Official Timekeepers for Team McLaren Mercedes and tested the Carrera Calibre 360 in real situation. A unique opportunity for them to experience LIVE not only the accuracy but also the precision of the revolutionary TAG Heuer Cal 360 movement.

TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 360

Using the legitimacy of F1 history and long term partnership with Team McLaren Mercedes, journalists were given unique access to the backstage of F1, and enjoyed the manual timekeeping of McLaren Formula 1 cars on the race track..

The contest organized between journalists was a testimonial to the interest of the 1/100 of a second in manual timing, and to the unique accuracy of the Calibre 360. The 2 winners were at 5/100th from the official electronics timing system!

The unbeaten 1/100th precision of the Calibre 360 has been accomplished by watch experts, as well as the strong TAG Heuer heritage innovation skills and leadership in motor racing.

A thrilling experience for a day in the heart of the action!
