TAG Heuer Mikrotimer Flying 1000, a new in-house concept watch capable of 1/1000th accuracy. You may recall that the Mikrograph set new record back in January for being the first mechanical chronograph to achieve 1/100th accuracy, a record that has been smashed. The Mikrotimer is the opposite- a highly modern design with an innovative case system (the case design and the movement itself are covered by 12 patents). Design-wise, the Mikrotimer looks like a development of the basic Carrera shape. The case is black titanium carbide and features titanium horns in contrasting silver.Related replica TAG Heuer Mikrotimer Flying 1000.
The dial of TAG Heuer Mikrotimer Flying 1000 has two central Chronograph hands. The first green central hand measures the 1/100th and 1/1000th of a second on the external scale. The second, smaller central hand indicates elapsed minutes and 1/12s of a minute.The time is read on the dial by adding together the 1/ 10th of a second from the 5-second sub-dial at 6 o’clock to the 1/100th and 1/1000th read from the central hand on the external dial. Its not as easy as simply reading off the 1/100th of a second from the dial of the Mikrograph, but it does allow the dial to remain relatively un-cluttered and places a priority on being able to more easily read the smaller increments of time.
The movement has 354 components and a 43 hour-power reserve for the watch and 150 seconds for the chronograph.The movement is a development of the 50hz Mikrograph movement (About 2/3rds of the movement is carried over), using the same dual-assortment system. The importance of having two assortments can not be overstated. A single assortment, as used on most watches, means that the Chronograph drains power from the watch.
Repeated use of the Chronograph will eventually start to impact the accuracy of the watch and push it outside COSC-standards. The two assortments addresses this problem, and having this basic layout patented, TAG Heuer pushed the concept to the extreme- 500hz.
