We look forward to continuing to build our longstanding relationship with QDF in order to offer our much-loved TAG Heuer products to the millions of passengers that are set to journey through HIA this year.” Founded in Switzerland in 1860 by Edouard Heuer at the age of 20, TAG Heuer has made history in the luxury watchmaking industry by creating the most accurate timing instruments and wrist timepieces in the world. Creating the mikrograph in 1916, sponsoring F1 teams in the 1970s and launching the first luxury connected watch in 2015 are just some examples of the major technical innovations, ultimate accuracy and passion for distinctive design that define TAG Heuer.

This gives passengers a unique consumer experience to feel and see the brand’s distinctive DNA through one of its strongest partnerships with a top Formula One team, allowing the consumer to dive into the world of moto racing and timekeeping.
