Tag Heuer Microtimer Swiss Watches Review

Updated on January 6, 2015

Tag Heuer Microtimer

With the conceptual Microtimer Tag Heuer reassert their dominance in the field of extreme speed time measuring. The Microtimer can measure with the unprecedented for a wrist watch precision of a 1/1000th of a second. The stress here is on pure technology – this is not a traditional watch – and it's the only collection where the brand abandons analog indication altogether in favor of a rectangular digital display.


The Microtimer cannot be mistaken for a watch made by any other brand than Tag Heuer. This observation is based on an axial comparison of all the other collections, the majority of which was designed specifically for extreme time measuring, best suited for motor racing: Carrera, Grand Carrera, Aquaracer, Formula 1, and others. These are all racing watches, all inspired by one way or another by various cars and car parts, and Microtimer follows suit.

The case was molded to resemble the skeleton of a Formula 1 car, while its caliber, besides the standard chronograph, can also time and memorize laps, later to display the best achieved time at request (similar to the Carrera Laptimer). In fact, Tag Heuer announced that the Microtimer was designed especially for Formula 1.

Monaco Alternative

This is the only Tag Heuer's watch where the stainless steel case emerges as a luxury element. The wealth, however, is only implied: it's one of ideas and engineering, not precious ore. The rectangular shape – this is the only watch besides the Monaco to feature a rectangle – combined with the digital display leaves the impression of a miniature computer.

It can appear somewhat intimidating, though it shouldn't be; after all, it's more of a highly specialized working instrument than a regular wrist watch.

For those who want both worlds in terms of movement, Monaco combines mechanical analog with quartz digital calibers, the latter looking very similar to the Microtimer. In Monaco, however, it was placed in the back of the case, as an alternative timekeeper.
