In conjuction to TAG Heuer 150-year timekeeping heritage, TAG Heuer unveiled the Carrera Mikrograph 1/100th Second Chronograph, the world’s first, fully integrated, COSC-certified mechanical chronograph with a column wheel system that displays 1/100th of a second by a sweeping central hand. This patented timepiece was entirely developed and manufactured at the brand’s La Chaux-de-fonds, Switzerland-based factory.
The Mikrograph offers optimal performance with a chronograph and watch balance wheel that oscillate at 360,000 beats and 28,800 beats per hour, respectively. Although the chronograph’s central 1/100th of a second hand turns at an astounding one revolution per second – three times quicker than the original Mikrograph – the rotation is fluid and tremor-free, providing a comfortable wearing experience.
The power reserves also operate on two separate cylinders: The high-frequency stopwatch boasts a 90-minute power reserve, while the watch features a 42-hour power reserve.
Only 150 of this masterpiece is made available and retail for $50,000 in the U.S.
