TAG Heuer Introduces the Carrera Mikrograph 1/100th Second Chronograph

by Time&Style Staff

With 150 years of watch-making experience, TAG Heuer has announced the Carrera Mikrograph 1/100th Second Chronograph.  Drawing on a patent by Heuer in 1916, the watch uses a piece of historical technology that had once been the official timekeeper of the Olympics.  Prior to Heuer’s patent, timepieces could only accurately measure to the nearest 1/5th of a second.

The Mikrograph uses a dual-control system that allows the stopwatch to function without interfering with the watch functions.  Its 1/100th of a second hand rotates at an astounding one revolution per second.  It also features a chronograph minute counter at 3 o’ clock, a seconds counter at 6 o’ clock, and a permanent second hand at 9 o’clock.

The Carrera Mikrograph is a very impressive timepiece by TAG Heuer and is limited to a production of only 150 worldwide.
