New in-house movement by Tag Heuer; Calibre 1969

Tag Heuer has just launched its latest in-house movement, the Calibre 1969. A chronograph, it comes with a vertical-clutch system.

The new movement operates in the 28,800 vibrations per hour (4hz) range has a 70-hour power reserve capacity. Due to the larger main springs required, it thickness is at a respectable 6.5 mm thick.

The Calibre 1969 dial layout will have the chronograph minutes at 3 o’clock, the chronograph hours at 9 o’clock and the running seconds at 6 o’clock.

The movement features more than 200 components. Unfortunately, some parts still need sourcing from external manufacturers.
