One of the hottest topics at this year’s Baselworld fair was TAG Heuer’s ’20k tourbillon’. And that nickname is even more impressive when you translate it into US, which gets it much closer to 15k. It represents the brand’s comparatively accessible take on that most hallowed (and most expensive) of complications.  TAG Heuer’s aggressively priced Carrera Heuer-02T – which retails in Australia for $20,450 – stirred equal measures of surprise and scepticism. Patek Philippe’s Chairman Thierry Stern held nothing back when he said that such a low-priced tourbillon was “nearly a joke”, commenting: “If [TAG Heuer are] willing to try to kill the quality of the Swiss product, I think they’re on a very good track.”
