[HM:246669] TAG Heuer Mikrotimer Is The World’s Fastest Chronograph



TAG Heuer Mikrotimer Is The World's Fastest Chronograph Watch (video)

TAG Heuer has created the worlds fastest chronograph watch which is capable of measuring out 1/1000ths of a second at 500 Hz. The new TAG Heuer Mikrotimer is equipped with a small balance wheel inside which goes back and forth 3.6 million times an hour.

To put that in perspective when you compare this to a Rolex watch who's balance wheel goes back and forth around 28,800 beats per hour, you can easily see the difference in technology used to create the two watches. View a video after the jump to see the TAG Heuer Mikrotimer in action.

This video shows TAG Heuer's Mikrotimer Flying 1000 Concept watch in action. This mechanical watch times things to 1/1000th of a second – 300 times faster than a human blink.

The Wrist Watch Review website sums up the design by saying: "In short, this watch is a completely mechanical device that runs faster than a sports car engine and comes in a package about as big as a silver dollar."

Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet as the TAG Heuer Mikrotimer watch is still just a concept, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated.
