When mentioning the Tag Heuer watches, you may be surprised by its new works of Monaco V4. New and unique technology also brought certain limitations for the Tag Heuer Monaco V4 watch. And this needs conduct a comprehensive review for traditional Research methods of empirical and repeatable, and create a large number of new research and development process which are dependent on mathematics, physics and computer simulation so as to complete the final architecture.
Tag heuer chief executive Jean-Christophe Babin concluded: “if the aircraft manufacturing industry is also applying the Methods of empirical and repeatable that were used by the watchmaking over the past four hundred years, then the probability of the plane crashed into the runway in the first test flight relatively will be much higher, this may be harmful for the business prospects of the research projects. So, we decided to have comprehensive review on our process during the development of the Tag Heuer Monaco V4, rather than hurriedly finishing the architecture and sample watch. First of all, we want to decompose the movement into many components, and before thinking about how to make a sample watch, we theoretically simulate and verify each component. In addition, this sample watch that has been operated for a year is the only one sample watch we have ever made before. Since the modern computer and the power of the simulation tool are enough to make theoretical design infinitely close to ideal state, why go to manufacture a sample watch that is only roughly approximate? “
After thousands of hours of computer simulation, the engineers of the replica tag heuer watches had the breakdown and analysis on the traditional movement, which provided a scientific basis, simulated and copies each module of the Tag Heuer V4 movement under the restriction of the physics and dynamics of new components such as driving belt.
