TAG Heuer announces it will be the official watch of the much anticipated new Kingsman: The Golden Circle film, available exclusively at Mr Porter.
We’ve already whetted the appetite for director Matthew Vaughn’s follow-up to the surprise 2014 hit Kingsman: The Secret Service with Taron Egerton and Colin Firth.
Now accessible Swiss luxury watch brand TAG Heuer has announced a special edition of its Connected Modular 45 watch, released at this year’s Baselworld, will be the official watch for the movie when it arrives in cinemas worldwide on September 22, 2017.
The TAG Heuer Connected Kingsman Special Edition will be sold online exclusively through Mr Porter for one month starting today.
The TAG Heuer Connected was personally chosen by Vaughn to be the timepiece for his Kingsman agents. “We looked at the different options available, but none of them were elegant enough for a Kingsman,” says Vaughn. “Then I saw an interview on Bloomberg TV with Jean-Claude Biver about his connected watch, and it became immediately obvious; the Kingsman agents would wear the TAG Heuer Connected.”
The watches worn by the characters play a decisive role in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, pivotal to the success of the Kingsman agents’ missions. They needed watches that could withstand anything, be it underwater shots, fight scenes or stunts. Film-goers will see the Kingsman agents wearing the TAG Heuer Connected.
The Kingsman Special Edition reproduces the aesthetic adopted by the agents in the movie: pink gold lugs and an elegant leather strap with Kingsman print. The watch comes with a second strap in orange velvet, inspired by the iconic orange velvet smoking jacket worn in the film by Taron Egerton. The key difference between the Kingsman Special Edition and the core collection is in its dial functions. Available in either midnight blue or grey, it bears the Kingsman inscription and logo at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock. At 10:10, the dial vibrates for 10 seconds and the K-shaped logo appears. In a final nod to the film, the original Android Wear lighting function is replaced by the film’s logo on the dial, in gold on a white background. An all-terrain watch with an elegant, English-style Kingsman touch.
The Swiss Made TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 was designed, developed and assembled in Switzerland by TAG Heuer, and features an original concept, which is brand new in the field of connected watches: the connected module is interchangeable with an Haute Horlogerie mechanical module — a 3-hands or COSC-certified Chronograph Tourbillon. The modular concept also applies to the lugs, the strap and the buckle. A strong, elegant and bold design. This is a genuine luxury watch, developed in collaboration with Intel: water-resistant to 50 metres, it features GPS, an NFC payment sensor, a stunning high-definition AMOLED display and a selection of infinitely customisable TAG Heuer dials, with Android Wear 2.0 and a new Companion App to enhance the software experience.
