As part of its 150th anniversary, TAG Heuer continues to celebrate its motor-racing heritage in a prestigious round-the-world tour with partner Tesla Motors. Through the Odyssey of Pioneers, the two avant-garde brands will share their values of innovation, performance, precision and energy-efficient luxury.

From March through October 2010, TAG Heuer’s revolutionary and sustainable conscious “Odyssey of Pioneers” exhibition and roadshow, will visit 15 key cities, including Basel, Moscow, Tokyo, Los Angeles and Paris, with inaugural VIP events at each stop. Professional drivers and celebrities will drive the one-of-a-kind TAG Heuer Tesla Roadster on its 37,000 km journey around the world.

The Roadster, a fully electric sports car, has been specially designed by Tesla Motors for TAG Heuer. The zero-emission GT car includes a unique interior which incorporates TAG Heuer avant-garde design elements and a console containing the latest 2010 concept watch, the TAG Heuer Pendulum. This car also features a TAG Heuer Meridiist mobile phone as well as a one-fifth second Heuer Limited Edition Stopwatch.
