As if you needed a reminder of how fast time is slipping away, the Tag Heuer Mikrogirder ($TBA) is here to show you with nearly unreadable speed. Accurate to 1/2,000th of a second, the Mikrogirder uses an all new beam/girder and excitatory beam/girder system to measure such small fractions of time with stunning accuracy, as evident on the central hand that does a complete revolution 20 times a second. It probably tells you normal time well, too, but if you're even considering trying to acquire this beast, that's probably not your biggest concern.
We'll be the first to admit that Swatch — better known for its crazy, stackable neon designs — was about the last company we expected to drop a touchscreen digital watch. Yet that's exactly what the Swatch Touch Watch ($140) is. Using funky on-screen digits that blend in well with the control indicators at the bottom, it offers up the time, date, and even a chronograph, all accesible with a touch — and swipe — of the finger.
