Etalon micrometer made in Switzerland.
These are standard outside diameter micrometers of the very highest quality. Nothing better is available. Many Etalon micrometers have been passed down as heirlooms. If you're planning on buying just one micrometer, this is the one. Make your future heirs happy.
Note: The photo (above) is of an inch model which can be ordered on page 113. The metric models offered on this page have the same general appearance.
Since Brown & Sharpe micrometer No.1 doesn't have the larger metric micrometers, you can safely use this Etalon instead. They are made by the same manufacturer in Switzerland.
Your micrometer comes in a hard plastic box which is perfect for storage. A manufacturer's declaration of conformity, a multi-lingual instruction pamphlet plus calibration data are included.
Important: (as of 2016) these models are being phased out. Sales will continue as long as there is stock remaining. Grab these while you can.
What is your next best option for a quality metric micrometer? It's the TESA Isomaster made by the same manufacturer in Switzerland. Take a look at page 213.
