TAG Heuer Launches a Fun, Innovative Viral Marketing Campaign for its Luxury Phone

TAG Heuer Meridiist Luxury Cell Phone

The viral marketing campaign developed for Meridiist, TAG Heuer’s luxury telephone, is a true revolution in quality. With an innovative design, it gives Internet users the opportunity to win a customized Meridiist.

This campaign, centred around a short film written and filmed by director Pierre Morel – a member of Luc Besson’s circle – gives viewers the chance to enjoy a fun and unique experience based on a prestige product.

The website puts users into the director’s chair, allowing them to select takes and scenes of their choice in order to try to win a Meridiist. They are then asked a series of questions about the film and the product in order to increase their chances of winning the luxury phone.

The site also has bonus pages on the making of the film, a photo gallery, and the Meridiist’s features.

“This device marks a true revolution in luxury communications”, says Steve Amstutz, TAG Heuer’s Managing Director of Communications. “By uniting the look of a feature-quality film with the purpose of a viral marketing campaign, TAG Heuer solidifies its status as a cutting-edge brand and enables Meridiist to stand out in a way that goes beyond its design and innovative features.”

At 28 hours on standby and 7 hours of talking time, Meridiist is without question the longest-lasting phone on the market. The second screen, ideally located on the phone’s top side, lets you view the time, set up a 1/100th-second precision stopwatch, and discreetly check incoming calls.

Director Pierre Morel has managed to combine the essence of Meridiist, design and performance, with the magic of a contemporary love story.

TAG Heuer MERIDIIST Features and Specifications:

‘Time in your hand’ with specific time unit dual display patented design:
This exclusive design for one-of-a kind personality integrating watch inspired features performs several functions, such as reversible clock, 1/100 of a second chronograph and incoming call identification. A special OLED technology (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) protected by a sapphire crystal glass contributes to this innovating design. This dual display offers the user a new level of refinement in their manner of viewing the time and addressing incoming calls.

Outstanding autonomy:
Exceptional autonomy up to 28 days standby time and 7 hours talk time will provide comfort of use of the highest quality. Every single electronic component has been scrupulously selected by our engineers to optimize the output of the long duration Li-Ion battery.

Multi function TAG Heuer switch:
As a distinctive touch, the Meridiist features a dual-function TAG Heuer switch, designed for the needs of the executive in important meetings: with a touch of this switch a polite call rejection process is issued; it also illuminates the unique time display mounted at the top of the Meridiist, and switches the direction from which the time can be viewed or launches a 1/100th of a second chronograph (lap time or split time).
