Carrera Mikrograph 1/100th Second Chronograph is a wristwatch by TAG Heuer.

This model, introduced in January 2011 in a limited edition of 150 pieces, is the world's first mechanical chronograph, which indicates the 1/100th of a second using a central hand.

The watch is driven by a fully integrated COSC certified chronograph movement with column wheel system. It has a balance for the watch, which oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and has a power reserve of 42 hours, and a Swiss high-frequency balance for the stopwatch at a frequency of 360,000 vibrations per hour and a 90-minute power reserve. Thus, the display of 1/100ths of a second by using the central chronograph hand is possible.

A transparent sapphire crystal case back offers a view on the two "hearts", beating at different speeds, which are arranged side by side on the bottom of the côtes de Genève ornated movement.
