Mikrogirder Launch

2012.01.16

 

The world’s fastest chronograph is launched today. Our design challenge was to turn the traditional watch on its head.

 

 

The case:  Inspired by the look of iconic stopwatches, we literally turned conventional thinking on its head with the design of a “bull head” case, placing all the functions at the top for optimal usability.

 

 

Another challenge with this watch was to capture the engineering achievement of a chronograph, accurate to 1/2000th of a second, so that it can be understood in a glance. No easy feat!

 

The design was kept as clean as possible to give as much attention as we could to the exceptional 1/2000th of a second scale. We wanted the user to be able to find the flying gold hand quickly, with no distraction from unnecessary detail.

 

 

This is the result.
