“The Centigraphe Souverain from F.P. Journe. An in-house designed and manufactured fully-integrated chronograph, beating at 21,600 bph AND able to record elapsed time down to a mechanically nanoscopic 1/100 of a second! Combined with the tachometer scales, being able to measure intervals of 1/100th second makes it theoretically possible to time something moving at 360,000 km/hr.”

Wait, what?

  1. That’s just not fast enough for me. When are they gonna get off their butts and really serve the aerospace and quantum physics industries? o_0

  2. Great, except for the problem that human reaction time is typically in the > 1/10th of a second range (> 100ms)

    Will there be a fast robot provided to start and stop the timer for you?
