    Anyone get this email yet? It says owners of the original Connected watch can bring in their original Connected and get $400 off the 45.

    I'm disappointed it came a month after the release, but I think I'd still wait for the original offer of a $1500 mechanical instead. Though I might consider $400 off the mechanical module for the 45.

    Interesting... I just checked my gmail account and I also received it. The promo says this offer is only available at TAG Heuer boutiques.

    I'm glad they have an upgrade path to go from the original connected to the modular, or always felt like this was a fairly obvious step. $400 is a lot less than they are currently going for on eBay, I'd happily pay that for an og connected

    Has there been any news about the $1500 mechanical upgrade? Isn't it about time they began doing that?

    I asked about that around the time when I ordered the new Connected Modular. I was told by TAG Heuer US Customer Service that the mechanical upgrade eligibility happens after the 2-year warranty expires.

    So since the original connected was released on NOV-2015, then that would be the "starting" date when those mechanic upgrades could be pursued for people who ordered their watches during the initial launch month.

    What I've been told by the TH boutique staff is that now it is sold as one of the module for the Connected.

    You can only purchased it if you had purchased connected before

    I got the feeling they also dont know for sure how it will work.

    There are questions that i want to ask but i cant since i dont even plan to buy the connected.

    I want to know if we can buy the $1500 upgrade twice instead of once.

    I want to know if the $1500 upgrade to mechanical deal is only for the first connected and not for the 2nd generation one.

    Anyway they are selling like crazy in here. People seems to like it very much

    I really wish this option was available in the Middle East. I would immediately exchange it. Really desperate.

    Put it on eBay, they're selling for a lot more than $400
