In 2011, TAG Heuer launched the MIKROTIMER FLYING 1000, the world’s first 500Hz mechanical chronograph. A revolutionary mechanical chronograph regulator without any balance wheel system and equipped with TAG Heuer’s two escapements “MIKRO” architecture, the Mikrotimer’s beats 3.6 million times per hour, making it 125 times faster than a standard Swiss chronograph. Its central chronograph hand completes a full rotation 10 times per second. Stunningly beautiful, with its black Titanium Carbide coated case with contrasting steel horns and the black ruthenium-treated movement inside.
The MIKROTIMER FLYING 1000 was voted the 2011 Swiss Sports Watch of the Year at the Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie de Genève.
