The TAG Heuer Mikrotimer from HODINKEE on Vimeo.
This video shows TAG Heuer’s Mikrotimer Flying 1000 Concept watch in action. This mechanical watch times things to 1/1000th of a second – 300 times faster than a human blink. As the watch spins maniacally, it’s actually meting out 1/1000ths of a second at 500 Hz. That means the small balance wheel inside pops back and forth 3.6 million times an hour – a speed that would shatter many mechanical systems.

A great look at the nerd watches of old. They’re not quite as cool as the calculator watches of my childhood, but look at this Tag!

WristDreams is reporting that the rumored Tag Heuer phones are real.
Dial-a-Phone has alleged that the new phone device will be “a completely new design,” which can’t be said for some brands like the D&G RAZR, which lacked originality save for the gold finish and ridiculously high price.
Wrist Dreams: Rumors of Tag Heuer Phones are True

Rumor has it that Tag Heuer, makers of fancy watches, is releasing a cellphone designed by ModeLabs, a French company that designs phones companies MTV and Virgin Mobile. The phone will be made of stainless steel and take design cues from the other watches in the Tag line-up.
This appears to be a direct shot at Nokia’s Vertu line, which means someone at LVMH, Heuer’s parent company, must have woken up from a long nap and noticed that the times were a’ changing.
The phone will probably look something like the Carrera over there, Heuer’s flagship watch. I was personally never in love with their work — too many cheap looking quartz watches and too few cool looking monsters — but we shall see, won’t we?

This quote from this WuS thread says it all.
A dufus came into the shoppe yesterday wearing a fairly new TAG
Carrara Chrono. One of the pushers had fallen out and so to make the
watch look “even,” this brain dead twit pulled out the other pusher
with a pair of pliers. To top it off, he wasn’t going to have it repaired,
plus he has a girlfriend! I hope they don’t get married and

Like the Formula 1 cars Volvo regularly races, this watch has very little to do with the entire Tag Heuer line. However, it is very cool. It has 1/10, 1/100, and 1/1000 of a second registers and is completely mechanicl. Power reserve and an unmentional price tag round out the impressive package.
