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 http://www.tagheuer.com/meridiist 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.
