Precision Timing Weapon Tag Heuer 1/100 Second Chronograph

1/1000 seconds is not available, we can at least pursue this 1/100 second.

The computer screen is set to 75 Hz (75 refreshes per second), and what we see is a completely still image. When the pointer is in the ‘small broken step’ of 100 times per second ‘Run (1/100 second), the naked eye can no longer distinguish, only the difference in numbers is left; when the frequency is increased to 1/1000 … the second hand completely disappears from my eyes without suspense.
