Etalon Microrapid with .001 mm graduations
These high-precision micrometers (shown above) are only available only in metric: 0-25mm, 25-50mm, 50-75mm, and 75-100mm. The inch versions were discontinued many years ago much to the chagrin of many a discerning machinist.
The thimble on this metric micrometer has 100 graduations rather than the standard 50 graduations. Reading this scale is faster and less prone to error. Plus, you only have to turn the thimble half as much as the regular micrometer so the anvils open and close quickly. Hence, "micro-rapid." For this tool alone it's worth switching to metric.
