THE SKY’S THE ONLY LIMIT
Dubai’s hyper-state-of-the-art architectural richness and diversity inspired this novel, sporty-looking, skeletonized, tourbillon-equipped limited edition.
From Burj Khalifa, Cayan Tower, Burj Al Arab, Atlantis to The Palm, to name but a few… steel, glass and concrete create architecture that knows no limit in Dubai. Here, inventiveness reigns supreme. The city with the highest population in the United Arab Emirates is also in a class of its own given its savvy ability to organize global events. In addition to the latest COP28, the city hosts the Dubai Watch Week. This watch show, which has become a must-of-musts, offers prestigious brands the opportunity to unveil new pieces for the first time. And, it was during this show that TAG Heuer center staged its Tourbillon H02T Dubai Skyline Limited Edition. This watch, issued in a limited series of just 12 pieces, and reiterating the key features of the original model, combines a 45 mm-diameter black PVD-coated titanium case with a spectacular openworked dial encircles by a bezel boasting a carbon tachymetric scale. On top, the markers and chronograph counters, dressed in deep blue, stand out from the anthracite-adorned features. The tourbillon in its carbon and titanium cage at 6 o’clock breathes life into the sculptural composition.
The regulating device houses the Heuer 02T caliber. This selfwinding movement excels as its chronometry is COSC-certified. What’s more, in this timepiece, the movement keeps all its secrets under wrap. In a nutshell, the traditional sapphire-crystal caseback is replaced by a closed alternative illustrating Dubai’s iconic skyline shot with a fisheye lens. Incredibly impressive.
