According to the Brand:

Simpler, faster and more efficient than science dreamed possible, impervious to gravity and dramatically reducing isochronous error, potentially easier to manufacture and able to precisely measure time to a phenomenal 1/2,000th of a second today, and probably even more precisely tomorrow…

TAG Heuer challenges three centuries of hairspring/balance wheel mechanical regulation conventions to create a totally new mechanical regulator. The legendary Swiss brand is now unveiling a first Concept version, a 2,000th of a second chronograph beating at 1,000 Hz or 7,200,000 beats per hour!

Here is the film revealing this amazing Timepiece, you can feel the race…
