TAG Heuer and Tesla announce timepiece world tour
Luxury watch brand TAG Heuer has unveiled a new concept watch for its specially designed Tesla Roadster March 18 - and announced plans for a world tour.
To celebrate its 150th anniversary, Tag Heuer will send the TAG Heuer Tesla Roadster around the world, leading a travelling exhibition of the brands timepieces. At the centerpiece of the car's console will be the Grand Carrera Pendulum, a 2010 concept watch specially designed to fit in the Roadster that was also launched at the event.
The all-electric Roadster, unveiled earlier this month at the Geneva Motor Show, will travel some 37,000 miles - the first round-the-world tour by a zero emission GT car. In total, 15 city stops will be made between March and October 2010.
The car's first stop will be Monaco on March 25, in time for the start of green car show EVER Monaco which begins on the same day. Last November, Tesla opened third European showroom in Monaco, providing sales and service to Southern Europe.
Breitling and Bentley joined TAG Heuer and Tesla in unveiling combination timepieces at the Baselworld show. The new Bentley Supersports watch, limited to a 1,000-edition run, was also launched March 18.
