Mikrogirder

The TAG Heuer Mikrogirder represents the ultimate “mikro” platform, with chronograph precision to 5/ 10,000th of a second. Initially presented as the Mikrogirder 2000 Concept Watch in January 2012, the improved Mikrogirder 10000 followed a few months later at the Basel show.

The Mikrogirder was produced in limited numbers by the TAG Heuer haute horlogerie team.
