TAG Heuer introduces a unique way for customers to showcase their NFT collection on their TAG Heuer Connected watch..
TAG Heuer has unveiled a new way to display NFT (non-fungible token) artworks and bring these valuable and highly collectible artworks into the real world: for the first time they can be worn on the wrist with a proof of ownership via the Lens watch face. And to develop this new feature TAG Heuer consulted and engaged with key members of the BAYC, Cryptopunk, CLONE-X or World of Women communities, ensuring the Lens functionalities and experience.
The brand has been a pioneer in the luxury smartwatch segment since 2015, with the TAG Heuer Connected, and the new experience is part of TAG Heuer’s expanding digital ecosystem of apps and watch faces, designed by a team of in-house developers and bearing TAG Heuer’s trademark design signatures.
Frédéric Arnault, CEO of TAG Heuer says, ‘I have had a deep interest in the NFT space, and this feature fits with TAG Heuer’s tradition of being avant-garde and innovative in technology. Our watch enables users to display their digital identity with the ability to prove their NFT ownership. Watch this space, as TAG Heuer will have more stories to tell about Web3.’
The TAG Heuer Connected has established itself as a world leader in luxury smartwatches, and the new experience cements the Swiss watch brand’s reputation for innovation, with NFTs delivered to the watch alongside TAG Heuer’s collection of digital and analog-inspired watch faces.
Users can transfer multiple NFTs to the new Lens watch face via a paired smartphone. This watch face has three unique ways to display time while showcasing their favorite pictures or NFT artworks including a new conceptual design with a triangle and a circle representing hours and minutes.
TAG Heuer has partnered with Ledger to enable its users to securely access and display their NFTs on the TAG Heuer Connected; the new functionality also supports Metamask. Users can then resize the image, so it works well on the watch’s round screen.
The new TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 offers the perfect platform to view these artworks whose ownership is secured by the blockchain technology, with an industry-leading screen built to be clear even in strong sunlight, thanks to a high contrast ratio. High-fidelity color reproduction means that NFTs shine out of the screen the way they were meant to be seen.
