“I don’t have the bright watch I have the right watch” – Jay Z

Back 2 Business…

You can always spot the Distinguished Gentleman in a room by his time piece. A man’s watch is what a handbag is to a woman. They are staples of  a wardrobe and is to be matched with each outfit.  Believe it or not your watch says a lot about you, your style and your personality. Here is the TAG Heuer Pendulum Concept, the first-ever mechanical movement without hairspring.

Since the creation of the Galileo-inspired hairspring by Christiaan Huygens in 1675, the regulating organ of all mechanical watches has been based on a balance wheel and spiral-shaped torsion hairspring system. With the challenge of temperature diminished by Guillaume’s alloys, the spiral hairspring regulation system came to dominate mechanical movement design. In the TAG Heuer Pendulum Concept, the traditional hairspring is replaced by an “invisible” or virtual spring derived from magnets. TAG Heuer Pendulum Concept, the world’s first oscillator in a mechanical movement without hairspring, beats at 43,200/hour (6 Hertz) — making it a superlative representative of TAG Heuer’s unique mastery of high frequencies and ultimate precision.

Take a look at the additional flicks of the watch. When this drops, I would love to cop this.
