Along with a standard hour and minute hand, we also find a power reserve indication at 9 and a date display at 4:30. As a further nod to the 1916 stopwatch, the TAG Heuer Mikrograph 100th Anniversary Chronograph Replica Watch has a large onion crown at 12, which I assume will be a treat to use when topping up the power reserve. The chronograph functionality measures a maximum of 30 minutes, with a minute counter at 12, a seconds counter at 3, and the 1/100th scale surrounding the outer edge of the dial, read from the long central 1/100th seconds hand. The dial design is inspired by the 1916 Mikrograph stopwatch and offers strong legibility with black markings and long blued hands.On wrist, the steel-cased TAG Heuer Mikrograph 100th Anniversary is 45mm wide with long sloping lugs, a thin bezel, and an expansive white dial.
Once removed from its wrist-borne platform, the TAG Heuer Mikrograph Replica Watch can be mounted into a desk stand or a dashboard mount for further use as a stopwatch. The 2016 Mikrograph 100th Anniversary sports a bullhead layout (with the crown and pushers placed at 12 o’clock) and a unique two-section case that allows the inner case to be detached from the strap and lugs.The Mikrograph, as an idea, is characterized by its history as the first stopwatch that offered 1/100th of a second resolution.
This is the first TAG Heuer Replica Watch we’ve seen in a couple years, and while it boasts the same impressive functionality, a new case and dial design manages to make direct reference to its 100-year-old lineage. With TAG pushing to expand their market with cheaper tourbillons and democratically elected Autavias, it’s exciting to see them revisit the exceedingly complex and rather special Mikrograph platform.Tags: TAG Heuer Mikrograph 100th Anniversary Chronograph Replica Watch, TAG Heuer Mikrograph Replica Watch, TAG Heuer Replica Watch
