TAG Heuer Mikrotimer Flying 1000 unveiled

Tag Heuer unveiled today their highly anticipated concept watch for BaselWorld. The BaselWorld 2011 highlight from Tag Heuer is the Mikrotimer Flying 1000 concept. The TAG Heuer Mikrotimer Flying 1000 Concept Chronograph, the world’s first mechanical wrist chronograph to measure and display 1/1,000th of a second sets a new milestone in mechanical precision. It is 125 times more accurate than the most famous mechanical chronographs on the market — thanks to a heart beating at the speed of 3,600,000 beats-per-hour.

The 100% TAG Heuer-built Mikrotimer Flying 1000 Concept Chronograph capitalizes on the construction of the integrated Heuer Carrera Mikrograph 1/100th Second Chronograph and is equipped with two escapements:

- Regular time: 4Hz, 28,800 beats per hour, 42-hour power reserve.
- Ultra fast time: 500 Hz, 3,600,000 beats per hour.

The flying central hand of the Mikrotimer Flying 1000 makes a 10 rotations per second (pretty cool!), indicating 1/1000th of a second and 1/100th of a second on a scale on the external part of the dial, which has 100 graduations over 360°. A second, smaller central hand indicates minutes (TAG Heuer Patent pending) and 1/12th of a minute on a 150-second scale. A counter at 6 o'clock displays 1/10th of a second, calibrated to 5 seconds.

This unique dial-scale display system allows direct, instantaneous reading of minutes, seconds and 1/1,000th, making this the only mechanical chronograph for sporting events like the Formula 1, where 1,000-of-a-second accuracy is essential. Above and beyond everything, it is one of the most stunning “Grande Complication” ever developed in mechanical watchmaking.

Tag Heuer showed once again that they are on the technolocial forefront in watch making. Now they only need to bring the Mikrotimer Flying 1000 to the market soon to be even more impressive. See also the Mikrotimer Flying 1000 site.

The BaselWorld 2011 opens tomorrow.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
