The company's spokesman said it has licensed the Tag Heuer name to French phone maker Modelabs, which is also behind the Levi's handset, announced back in June this year.

Dolce & Gabbana, Armani, Prada and Ted Baker have already launched their own handsets, but almost all of the designer handsets have, so far, come from fashion houses. Tag Heuer could be the first luxury watch maker to lend its name to a phone.

What’s next, though? A Marks and Sparks phone accompanied by an advert spoken by that sexy-voiced lady? “This isn’t just a mobile phone, it’s a Marks and Spencer phone...”
