While I can’t say that every diamond-encrusted watch really grabs my attention, the TAG Heuer Carrera Plasma – which was introduced last month – did so, very much.

At the tech spec level, the TAG Heuer Carrera Plasma may seem pretty unassuming – a 36m white gold case, three-hander time display, and a date window, all powered by the TAG Heuer Calibre 7 automatic. Those are all great, and then you add in the sheer number of diamonds involved.

These are all lab-grown diamonds being used here. The dial has 2.9 carats looking like a sparkling field, upon which are set the 12 white gold indices and their own colorless lab-grown diamonds. The real star here are those pink accents. The TAG Heuer logo is replaced with a lab-grown pink diamond, and the crown of the piece is another pink lab-grown diamond (itself 1.3 carats).

All in all, you’ve got a total weight of 4.8 carats in the TAG Heuer Carrera Plasma. And it should be noted, that while this first edition is using pink as the hue, they’ve tuning their process to be able to produce other colors. Again, I’m not a diamonds-on-watches guy, normally, but there are some very interesting things happening here that could have me rethinking that! Oh, and if you want to get one, be aware that the pricing will be provided to you upon application to purchase one. For that, you’ll want to find your local boutique, or head on over to tagheuer.com
