A glimpse inside TAG Heuer’s latest pop-up exhibition at Suria KLCC

A celebration of the avant-garde watchmaker’s unique watchmaking history and close ties with the world of motorsports

 

The world of motorsports has long been fertile ground for watchmakers and the same can be said for  the most recent pop-up event at Suria KLCC. Debuting on 7 January for just one week, this collaborative exhibition between Cortina Watch and TAG Heuer was a unique opportunity for curious passersby to get acquainted with the avant-garde watchmaker’s historical achievements in the universe of haute horology and motor racing. Open to consumers and watch enthusiasts alike, visitors at the exhibition had a field day familiarising with the heritage timepieces that were specially curated by TAG Heuer’s Heritage Director, Catherine Eberlé-Devaux and brought in from the brand’s private museum located in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.
