Tag Heuer, Google and Intel Now “Connected”

The tech world went in to a love/hate mini-frenzy today over the release of Tag Heuer’s $1,500 titanium Connected Watch developed with Google and Intel. This black on black fashion statement from Mill+ director Nicholas Weigel leaves no doubt about the ambitions Tag harbors for their luxury Android time-piece.

Director Nicholas Weigel: “The watch is an incredible piece of technology and a very inspiring piece of product design. The story and visuals were easy to bring together once you started to understand all that has gone into this product and brand.

“The project included a mix of visual languages that needed to work well together to create a bit of mystery and surrealism. We crafted in camera projects for our DP David Claessen to work with on set. We built elements of a black on black set to ground our character in a space.

“And we developed a custom language of graphic aberrations to help us move through our story. The footage was an incredible base with which to work, and Nate [Pence], our editor at Conspiracy, brought a level of intrigue and energy to the piece alongside the great track from Yessian.”
