"The Futuristic Serie"
Tag Heuer Diamond Fiction

The astonishing alliance of high-end jewellery and avant-garde technology integrated into an audacious version of a new timepiece: the first time that diamonds give time. The Diamond Fiction is an exceptional watch, both glamorous and avant-garde.TAG Heuer’s latest haute joaillerie creation does not look like a watch, but rather a piece of haute joaillerie jewellery; it is precious and pure, and loaded with sexy space-age technology, designed exclusively for the fashion-forward female.This luxury watch set with 879 Top Wesselton (5.8 carats) VS/SI (1.1 mm), full-cut, diamonds hides a surprising innovation: the digital display through the diamonds. 54 of the 879 diamonds have been cut in a revolutionary way to provide a very high-definition concentration of the light emitted by 54 LEDs (light emitting diodes) that display the time in glowing red. The red is echoed in the satin strap that gives a warm and silky look contrasting with the brilliance of the multiple diamonds.
