Tag Heuer Carrera Mikrogirder

by

The Carrera Mikrogirder is one of the most outstanding TAG Heuer watches ever. It is a timepiece that reinvents the watch movement.  Not only that it has a very modern and creative design, but it is also faster, simpler and more efficient than you could possibly imagine. The Mikrogirder is invulnerable to gravity, reduces cyclic errors and is precise to an amazing 5/10,000th of a second.

This extremely accurate timepiece changes everything you knew about modern watches. It is considered a concept watch and it was launched at the BaselWorld Show, in March 2012. The most impressive part of the design can be found at the inside where there is a complex and unique Chronograph movement that vibrates at 7.2 million beats per hour. Unlike other TAG Heuer chronograph, this feature is what makes the Tag Heuer Carrera Mikrogirder precise to of 5/ 10,000th of a second.

Tag Heuer Carrera Mikrogirder watch

Connoisseurs have surely noticed that at least once a year Tag Heuer launches a new super chronograph that is determined to defy the laws of physics and horology. Tag Heuer has managed to touch the limits of technology by featuring a high frequency chronograph that operates at 1000 hertz. The only problem is that it has just 4 minutes of power reserve. There is no traditional mechanism watch that is superior to the Mikrogirder. Only electronic watches can be more precise than this. Experts agree, this is the highest possible precision when it comes to automatic movement watches.

As with all good things in life, the Tag Heuer Mikrogirder is a limited edition watch. Only 11 pieces of this extraordinary timepiece were made and sold.   It is clearly an interesting and fascinating product for those who are passionate by extremely precise time devices. As far as prices go, the Tag Heuer is an incredibly expensive watch. How much does it cost? Well, the retail price is kept secret. Its predecessor was selling for $65,000 and the newest version of the Mikrogirder has been auctioned for over $100,000 so you can only imagine the staggering price it has.

This timepiece is an oversized sports looking watch with a bullhead style layout. The buttons and winding crown are located on top and the case is made entirely from stainless steel. Indeed, when you wear it, it looks a little bit big on the wrist, but it is a fun looking kind of big that feels very cool and manly. Even though the dial does not appear to be that complicated, you need to be a watch expert to read it. If you can afford this watch and want to ever use it then you must watch its description video to fully understand how it works.

What do you think Tag Heuer did to improve the measurements of the intensely quick speed? It replaced the traditional balance spring escapement system with an innovative system that is very similar to a violin. The advantage of strings is that these move as certain frequencies. Without a doubt, Tag Heuer has gone full lengths to make sure it creates a completely new mechanism that has at its core modern technologies and historical performances.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Calibre 5

TAG Heuer has succeeded along the years to combine the mastership of the Swiss watch making industry with fascinating worlds. Thus, the 60s and the 70s were marked by a powerful influence coming from the car racing world, while the 80s and the 90s were featured by a strong inspiration that the Swiss manufacturers found in the world of diving and sailing.

The Aquaracer Calibre 5 model (ref. CAJ2111.BA0872), issued as a tribute to the 34th edition of America’s Cup is the latest addition to a series that was conceived as a collection of professional sports watches inspired by water sports and by the aquatic world in general. Preserving the same source of inspiration that has resulted in a whole line of solid and reliable watches (the great outdoors, the powerful ocean, the uncontrolable natural forces), this model guarantees 500m underwater resistence provided the watch is submitted to annual checks.
