    This snippet comes from Gregory Pons, who writes an industry publication called Business Montres

    Key points:
    - In 2017 TAG Heuer plans for more than 2000 tourbillons to be COSC certified
    - that's up from last year, where the number was 710
    - there's a second generation tourbillon movement coming- fully in-house. It's made from titanium and carbon with 284 components

    Someone with better French than me might find some more info in the extract

    I wonder will there ever be a Monaco Tourbillon?

    My background is French, here are the key points:
    -Title: the brand that certifies the most Tourbillons is not considered "haute horlogerie" - go figure
    -Tag Heuer is among the top 3 brands that produces the most Tourbillons
    -710 in 2106
    -Forecast for 2017, est. 2000 in titanium
    -The new generation Tourbillon will be unveiled during Wonder Week
    -Made from titanium and carbon with 284 components, totally in house

    Bien merci,
