The statistics are nothing short of astounding: 1,000 Hz = 1/2000th = 5/10,000th of a second = 7,200,000 beats per hour. In comparison, a regular watch functions at 4hz, or only 28,800 beats per hour. The MIKROGIRDER is 250 times faster!
The MIKROGIRDER’s dual frequency system ensures precision and chronometry through 2 independent chains. As there is no possibility of interference between “normal speed” and “high speed”, there is better precision and accuracy. The power reserve is improved, too, and wear and tear dramatically reduced, as “high speed” is “on demand” instead of being always engaged. Finally, the dual frequency system offers the ultimate in readability. Finally, for ultimate readability, the smallest fractions of time — 1/1,000th and 5/10,000 of a second — are displayed on a central hand that completes a full revolution around the dial a mind-boggling 20 times per second. And like the Mikrotimer Flying 1000, a special counter at 3 o’clock and a 5/10,000-of-a-second scale on the dial’s edge let you read this incredible measurement quickly and effortlessly.
