Leonardo DiCaprio in the TAG Heuer Spotlight

Get ready to see Leonardo DiCaprio and TAG Heuer splashed in every magazine you open. Their new ad campaigns are set to hit magazine pages soon and here are a few of the first shots of DiCaprio and TAG Heuer luxury watches.

In our recent post we broke the news that DiCaprio would be replacing Brad Pitt as TAG Heuer ambassador but as always, DiCaprio thinks of the environment  first. The royalties from this ambassadorship will be going to the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Green Cross International.

Besides the ad campaigns Baselworld 2009 released the above TAG Heuer Grand Carrera Calibre 36 [email protected] Caliper Chronograph Ti2 (definitely a mouth full).

This new TAG Heuer luxury watch is seen above on Leonardo DiCaprio and has a 43mmm 2 Titanium case, polished bezel, oversized crown, caliper rotating scale, black rubber bracelet with titanium folding clasp, and 100 meters of water resistance. This new TAG Heuer luxury watch will be available in September 2009.
