Tag Heuer Monaco Mikrograph Watch - Unique Piece for Only Watch 2011

Jun 22, 2011
Tag Heuer boggles the public’s imagination with the presentation of its new Monaco Mikrograph unique watch, developed specially for the Only Watch 2011 event.

The new Tag Heuer watch is set in a 43mm steel case. Square in shape, it portrays the brand’s acclaimed “Monaco” design.

Ticking inside the case is a groundbreaking “Mikrograph” movement - the first caliber capable of 1/100th second accuracy. The mechanism incorporates a rotor, marked with the “Only Watch 2011” engraving. It can be admired through a transparent display back.

The caliber animates an impressive array of functions, presented on the daring display. The sub-dial at 12 o’clock is a chronograph power reserve indicator. The counter at 3 o’clock ensures chronograph elapsed minutes. It is equipped with three hands (0/10/20), mounted on a rotating disc.

The watch elapsed seconds are shown in a counter at 9 o’clock. Completed with three hands (0/20/40), it is also mounted on a rotating disc.

The display of the new Tag Heuer Monaco Mikrograph watch also offers a chronograph elapsed seconds sub-dial, featured at 6 o’clock. It is equipped with a double-ended needle indicating 0-30 seconds on the outer counter; a large needle showing 31-60 seconds on the inner counter as well as a small needle.

The originality of the timepiece lies in a flying central hand, which displays the 100th of a second. The indication is read off from the inner sapphire disc, marked with 0-100. The other end of the flying central hand bears a "/100" engraving, laser-cut by hand.

The new Tag Heuer watch is teamed with a black perforated leather strap.
