Tag Heuer’s Connected Modular 45: The World’s Priciest Smart Watch

By Paul Joseph

Swiss luxury watch brand Tag Heuer have unveiled what is being billed as the world’s most expensive smart watch.

Called the Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45, the new Android Wear watch is an augmented version of the brand’s Modular 41 smartwatch and is made of white gold and titanium and is dotted with glittering diamonds.

The 45mm case is made from 18-karat PD125 polished white gold, the bezel is covered 78 diamonds while there are another 16 on the lugs. The bracelet is embellished with an impressive 489 diamonds.

As for the mechanics, the watch is no less desirable. It is powered by a Cailbre 5 mechanical module, though the movement can be swapped for an Android Wear core at any time, meaning the watch won’t become obsolete when the Android Wear features become outdated.

Owners can also introduce a Chronograph Calibre 16 or COSC-certified Chronograph Tourbillon core, while other features include GPS, an NFC sensor for payment, an HD AMOLED screen, and 512MB of RAM with 4GB of storage.

The watch is also water resistant up to 50 metres and in the mechanical module its dial can be customised to the wearers preference.

The price for the Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45? A cool $197,000.
