SIHH (Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie) 2018 is underway in Geneva where watchmakers gather and make some spectacular announcement for the coming year. The event witnesses tremendous footfalls from watch enthusiasts. One of the spectacular announcements, which we think would have been equally spectacular at the just concluded CES 2018, is TAG Heuer’s most expensive smartwatch – the TAG Heuer Connected Full Diamonds.
Underneath, it is the Android & Intel-powered machine found in TAG Heuer Connected 45, but on the outside, it is a total of 23.35 carats of baguette diamonds studded in 18K white gold. The original Connected 45 announced last year came a starting price of $1650 whereas TAG Heuer Connected Diamonds is priced at $197,000, making it the most expensive smartwatch in the world. If nothing else, the announcement of this watch reflects the commitment TAG Heuer is showing for the world of smartwatches. Seems like it will be an exciting week at SIHH Geneva.
