Following last March's unveil of the Connected Modular 45, TAG Heuer has updated the timepiece with a white gold case, now paved with baguette-cut diamonds for a total of 23.35 carats, introducing the world's most expensive smartwatch.
The watch, initially debuted at Geneva Days 2018, is highlighted by a 45mm case made of white, 18K PD125 gold, while 589 baguette-cut diamonds enhance the bezel (78 VVS), horns (16 VVS), and strap (495 VVS). The Connected Modular 45 Full Diamond then comes packaged in a special box, with a mechanical module Caliber 5, while the bezel adorns 72 diamonds of 1.5mm diameter.
Developed with Intel and Google, the timepiece showcases a modularity concept, meaning each component can be conveniently removed and replaced, accordingly to various moods. While featuring GPS, the Connected Modular 45 Full Diamond — water resistant to 50 meters — boasts an NFC sensor enabling contactless payment via Android PayTM, a high-definition AMOLED screen, and multiple customizable TAG Heuer dials from the TAG Heuer Studio.
Lastly, the watch runs on the Android WearTM operating system, compatible with AndroidTM 4.3 phones and iOS 9 or later versions.
The TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 Full Diamond retails for a cool $180,000 USD. Follow here for more.
