    Dear members of the Calibre 11 forum and friends of the brand

    I proudly present to you the (presumably) first ever created NFTs of TAG Heuer watches.
    The watch images have been minted on the Cardano Blockchain.


    FHCB (First Heuer on the Cardano Blockchain):

    Interesting. Don't know if you're first with a Tag NFT, but why not give it a go? Good luck with that!

    I looked up NFTs on Wikipedia (I thought it stood for non-functuonal test). I'm none the wiser about why they are a thing, though.

    Me too. Just a lot of nonsense created by Millenials if you ask me.

    This is the first time I ever hear of this. So a unique digital piece of art. That anyone can copy for free. But you pay expensive money for the "original". :cautious:

    Remo please, I am a very old man. Can you explain to me how this works and why I should love it.

    Big thanks

    Greta told me that every time you forge an NFT it uses enough energy to kill a polar bear.

    You know, even though there's twice as many polar bears as there was 40 years ago.

    Come on guys, don't be so ignorant!

    This is presumably the first ever Heuer Carrera which has been eternalized on the eternally lasting decentralized blockchain to stay there forever and ever until the end of the world!
    This must be intuitively understood by the disciples of the holy church of silver dials!!!

    And the best of it: It is mine, connected to my crypto wallet, and nobody can take it from there until I sell it! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaa!!!
    Here is the proof: https://cardanoscan.io/token/b56393012d421dc727e4a1f2263a875338b3b2cb874dd39a25acfad0.46484342

    Ignorant is my middle name son.

    Maybe if we do one of these with the church logo it can be auctioned for 650 million German dollars. Would be great timing, the church is in desperate need for funding.

    Like my son told me last week... "I wish you weren't so old dad". At my age you really start to notice that you no longer keep up with all trendy cool stuff.

    I know that age problem very well myself. I guess I've read somewhere they call it 'midlife crisis'. That's when you think about weird stuff like starting to drive a motorbike or buying TAG Heuer x Porsche watches.

    Easy! You only have to open a cryptowallet like Yoroi, buy some Cardano to pay the minting fee and mint the NFT on https://www.nft-maker.io/
    :)
    And in 10 years you can show your son that you were so Avantgarde in the 2020s!

    Although rightnow it might be more popular to use the Ethereum blockchain, but gas fees are just insane there, believe me ;)!

    I prefer to behold physical beauty in front of my very real eyes. US$18k was the selling price for this "piece of art" that resides in your head only. I am sooo old school...:coffee:

    I also love the material stuff.
    But that Buddha is very fascinating, isn't it?

    NFTs or an invisible Buddha, which is more pointless?

    Haha, maybe an NFT of the invisible Buddha would trump everything

    I may have had that 15 years ago, now it’s called ‘ski in’, spending kids inheritance! Mine at the moment wants my Honda, she’s reaching mid life crisis age!

    This seems like something from a William Gibson novel
