June 27, 2005 TAG Heuer’s latest creation, the “Diamond Fiction” watch bracelet was recently shown for the first time by the elite brand’s latest Ambassador, Hollywood star Uma Therman. With TAG Heuer’s 2005/2006 Year of Diamonds theme, a stunning ladies watches collection was shown but the “Diamond Fiction” stole the show. It looks like a bracelet of red satin positively dripping with Top Wesselton diamonds (879 to be exact) but when you press a button on the side, some of the diamonds change colour to red offering the time in a digital display. Only three single and exclusive timepieces will be created at the TAG Heuer workshop at the Chaux-de-Fonds with a value of EU100 000 euro each.
TAG Heuer describes the Diamond Fiction as “an assertively feminine timepiece for women of uncommon poise and confidence, for whom glamour is a passion, luxury of the essence, and indulgence an absolute necessity” so we can see why they trotted out the lovely Uma to showcase the magnificent and exclusive timepiece. The Diamond Fiction’s unique shape is set with 879 Top Wesselton (5.8 carats), full cut, VS/SI (1.1mm) diamonds. Some (54) of the diamonds (3.8 carats) hide LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) that display the time in glowing red.
