Tagheuer Mikrotimer Concept

Tag Heuer’s new concept chronograph is the world’s first mechanical watch that measures and displays the 1/1,000th of a second, making it 125 times more accurate than most existing mechanical chronographs and 10 times faster than the Heuer Carrera Mikrograph 1/100th Second world first presented in Geneva in January 2011.

Over a 305 km race, this might not seem much — the length of a finger — but it is the difference between second place and a World Championship. related links Tag Heuer
