The Ground-Breaking Mikrotimer Flying 1000 Chronograph

At Baselworld 2011 a new timepiece, covered in patent-pending technologies, is now drawing a lot of attention. It is the extremely innovative Mikrotimer Flying 1000 Chronograph from Tag Heuer. The most remarkable thing about this chronograph is that it’s the only one that can measure and display the 1/1,000th of a second.
With this model Tag Heuer is keeping the tradition of ground-breaking technologies. In 1916, they created the first ever mechanical stopwatch that could measure the 1/100th of a second. Then, not very long ago, their 1/100th Mikrograph was introduced, and only a couple of months later this stunning piece was unveiled. You can watch an artistic presentation of this evolution in the video below.
The new Mikrotimer is 125 times more accurate than almost any other mechanical chronograph out there, and this was only possible thanks to the innovative technologies that Tag Heuer introduced in this model: 11 patents are currently waiting for confirmation. The piece that is currently displayed at Baselworld is a one-off, and it’s only a concept watch. When the production version will conquer the world, we will probably see a series of changes in it.
