TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 Kingsman Special Edition Smartwatch Review
Friday - 22 September 2017
Built for extreme missions and tough environments the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 was the only suitable contender for the Kingsman special agents who require an instrument to survive underwater and dangerous stunts when saving the world. Stepping up to its new starring role, the chronograph embraces the suave, charm and sophistication of the team much to the delight of Director Mr Matthew Vaughn.
To coincide with the release of the new Kingsman film The Golden Circle, TAG Heuer transform the Connected Modular 45 fit for an elite secret agent. The partnership with MARV films and 20th Century Fox inspires an elegant design with the pink gold lugs and brown leather strap well suited to the members of the Kingsman team. Alternatively, in one swift movement, change to the orange velvet strap for a more bold statement; a colour inspired by the iconic tangerine tuxedo suit worn by Eggsy in the film.
The special edition features either a midnight blue or grey dial with the Kingsman gold logo discreetly incorporated into the chronograph counter at 9 o’clock. A more obvious nod to the spy film is the inscription written under the logo and date display at 3 o’clock. Turn the timepiece to reveal the film engraved into the black case back. Finally at 10:10, the dial vibrates for 10 seconds revealing the K-shaped logo proudly spanning the dial in gold. The connected chronograph embraces the blockbuster role standing out from the Modular 45 releases earlier this year.
It was highly important that the chosen watch for the film was a smartwatch that was at the forefront of technology. For authenticity in such a modern spy film and plot, the instrument choice needed to be believable. With computer hacking and controlling technology via a wristwatch a mechanical timepiece would not be well suited and therefore, the TAG Heuer model was the perfect choice. An avant garde piece for the contemporary gent who values the elegance and charm of a Kingsman.
