Some selected vintage ads from the 60s that illustrates the brand’s heritage.

Motor sports are an integral part of the DNA of TAG Heuer, which for many years has been the Official Timekeeper for the biggest and most legendary motor races in history, particularly Formula 1. In 1971, Heuer was the first watchmaker affiliated to a Grand Prix team – Scuderia Ferrari. The partnership ran until 1979. In 1985, TAG Heuer joined forces with McLaren, the team with which it enjoyed the longest partnership in F1 (30 years). Today, TAG Heuer is the timekeeper for the groundbreaking F1 Red Bull Racing team.

The centerpiece of the Singapore exhibition is the 18 ct gold Heuer Carrera from 1970, which Jack Heuer presented to Ferrari drivers, with their name engraved on the case-back.

This is an exhibition not to be missed for motor-racing enthusiasts or watch aficionados who want to get right into the heart of the F1 action in Singapore.
