Remember the “Connected to Eternity” portion of the idea that TAG Heuer had when the initial Connected Watch was launched at the tail end of 2015? It basically said that at the end of having had your Connected Watch for two years, you could bring the watch back to TAG Heuer, top up with USD1,500 and in exchange acquire a mechanical watch that — in principle — has no shelf life.
And now we meet the second generation of the Connected Watch — the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 — which packs the above punch a lot more upfront. Let’s just say you won’t have to wait the two years any longer in order to get your mechanical watch at the end of the Connected Watch rainbow.
The new TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 will come in two essential variations. The first will present the connected watch module with a second mechanical — 3-hand — watch module, which can be easily swapped out from one to the other on the provided strap.
The second, and more luxe package, will come with the connected watch module and the Heuer 02-T tourbillon chronograph module.
But the modularity in either instances isn’t confined to just time keeping units. Obviously, the straps are interchangeable, however, so are the lugs and buckle as well. As such, there are a total of 56 possible variations. Only 11 of these combinations can be bought straight off the self. For any of the remaining 45 combinations, you are going to have to put in a special request.
