According to TAG Heuer, “The TAG Heuer Connected watch was personally chosen by Matthew to be the timepiece of choice for his Kingsman agents.” Matthew Vaughn said, “For Kingsman: The Golden Circle, we needed a connected watch for our agents.

Porsche 911 GT2 RS Watch

A chronograph designed for the track?

Jason Pitsch

California-based, Singer Vehicle Designs, a company that specializes in tasteful Porsche 911 restorations – has teamed up with watch designer Marco Borraccino, and watchmaker Jean-Marc Wiederrecht, to create a mechanical chronograph for use at the track. Presented in a tonneau-shaped titanium case that measures 43 mm by 15 mm, the Track 1 exterior features brushed and polished surfaces along with a leather rally-style strap with metal eyelets. Under the hood, is the AgenGraphe movement (that is currently only used in one other watch, the Faberge Visionnaire), produced by Agenhor. Consisting of 477 components and beating at 3Hz the automatic movement (caliber 6361) measures 34.4 mm x 7.18 mm and features a central chronograph display that, as you might expect, focuses on the chronograph, not the time. It is a wristwatch, though, and so while the timekeeping has been deemphasized, it
