Thanks to a 75% “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the acclaimed comic book film adaptation Kingsman, The Secret Service is back for another stylish and violent secret agent romp: Kingsman: The Golden Circle. And while Taron Egerton and Colin Firth will be reprising their roles from the first film as agents of Her Majesty’s “other” secret service, their Bremont Kingsman-issue watches won’t be. Gone is the mechanical ALT1-WT chronometer, deemed a “bloody smart Tag Heuer Replica,” having been replaced by TAG Heuer’s Connected Modular 45 in Kingsman-exclusive livery – an actual smartwatch as requested by director Matthew Vaughn.
Like the special-edition Bremont ALT1 from 2015’s Kingsman, the Swiss-made TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 also gets its own special treatment. But since it’s not terribly difficult to create your own custom dials within Tag Heuer Replica Watches existing Connected design studio, the Kingsman Special Edition gets a few extra embellishments like matching rose gold lugs, two different interchangeable straps, packed into a Kingsman-branded presentation box. On the watch itself, the digital Kingsman-exclusive dial comes in both blue and grey with matching rose gold accents and the inverted “K” insignia throughout. That rose gold logo makes a larger, more animated appearance on the dial twice per day at 10:10, and again when the Android Wear flashlight function is deployed, the latter of which yields a particularly clever Bat Signal-esque effect.
While this Luxury Tag Heuer Watches Connected Modular 45 Kingsman Special Edition is an example of pretty overt watch placement in a film, you don’t have to be a seasoned watch-spotter to know there’s already a pretty rich history and sub-culture behind watch placement in movies, like Sly Stallone’s Panerai in Daylight, Matthew McConaughey’s DOXA in Sahara, or Sean Connery’s legendary Submariner in Dr. No. Most times, the placement is subtle and the result of either a savvy wardrobe director or the personal preference of an actor in question. But more often than not, it’s the result of a sophisticated marketing partnership, the modern likes of which seem to be looking to replicate the runaway success of Omega’s Seamaster placement in every James Bond film since 1995’s Goldeneye.
The Luxury Tag Heuer Replica Watch is a special version of TAG’s Connected Modular 45 watch, distinctive because it takes the shape of a round mechanical watch with a 45mm case. It is an android-powered smartwatch, with a crown that acts as the control center. The screen of the new special edition Alec Monopoly watch is a digital rendering of a painting by the artist. The white rubber straps on each version of the Swiss Tag Heuer Watches are hand painted by Alec Monopoly, and each is one-of-a-kind. The straps, all 300 of them, were mounted side by side on a large board at the party, where the artist finished painting them all at once, using a technique that involves applying spray paint in splatters. “I experimented with a lot of different paints, and I found spray paint is the best because it is conditioned to work outside in the rain or snow, and on different surfaces,” says Monopoly. “
Part of the artist’s role as a Best Tag Heuer Replica Watches ambassador is to create original paintings to be hung in the brand’s boutiques around the world and to design other marketing materials. During the celebrations in Miami, he also unveiled a sculpture exclusively for TAG Heuer, which will be auctioned for charity. A studio has been set up for him at TAG Heuer’s manufacture in La Chaux-de-Fonds, where he will create some of the paintings. Monopoly is famous for wearing a bandana on his face to protect his identity. “It’s part of graffiti culture to remain anonymous so you can continue painting,” says Monopoly, who points out that “tagging is not legal.” The artist has progressed beyond graffiti to paintings, which Fake Tag Heuer Watches are exhibited in galleries in New York, his hometown, as well as Miami.
The artist was hired by TAG Heuer after CEO Jean-Claude Biver sought advice three years ago from his then 14-year-old son, Pierre. “I asked him how I could connect with the new generation,” says Biver. “He told me I should work with Cara Delevingne and Alec Monopoly. His son connected him to Monopoly’s Instagram address, Biver became a follower, then a fan, and eventually approached him to buy some of his work. “The more I went on Instagram, the more I saw that he had a lot of influence on this younger generation – and I started to like his art,” says Biver. “I even bought a painting for my son, to thank him.”
