TAG Heuer Microtimer CS111C-1
In 1966, Heuer (before it was TAG Heuer) patented the first miniaturized electronic timekeeping instrument accurate to 1/1000th of a second. 38 years later, TAG Heuer released the first wristwatch capable of the same level of precision: the Microtimer. The TAG Heuer Microtimer is a very unique looking, very sophisticated watch designed for timing sporting events with unprecedented accuracy. The fact that TAG Heuer was the first to achieve this level of precision is a testament to its reputation in the world of racing.
Prestige, performance, avant-garde technology and absolute reliability: these four "watchwords" have characterized TAG Heuer philosophy since its founding in 1860, when Edouard Heuer set up the company's first workshop in St-Imier (Switzerland). Since that date, the firm's bold and innovative spirit, its dedication to the high-precision measurement of infinitesimal fragments of time and its quest for excellence in the design and fabrication of its products constitute the very soul of TAG Heuer. From its very first patent for a chronograph mechanism in 1882 to the introduction, in 2004, of a revolutionary new automatic movement (the Monaco V4), TAG Heuer continues to be at the forefront of some of the most spectacular innovations in watchmaking history.
For more than 150 years, TAG Heuer has faced down every challenge, and then pushed past it. By defying the time-honored conventions of Swiss watchmaking, it has led it to ever higher levels of precision and performance.
It makes its own rules, chooses its own path, never quits moving forward, never compromises, never cracks under pressure.
