The event officially inaugurates the pioneering Swiss brand's latest adventure in motor-racing, which starts 13 September in Beijing and closes 27 June, 2015 in London. TAG Heuer is the Official Watch, Partner and Timekeeper of the FIA Formula E Championship for all ten events, a role it has played several times over the decades, for major motor-racing series and circuit around the world, from Formula One in the 1970s to Indy 500 in 20XX and the Monaco Grand Prix today.
"Cars have fueled and inspired this brand since its earliest days," said Stéphane Linder. We invented the first dashboard counters back in 1911, partnered with Ferrari in Formula One in the 1970s, have been part of the most wining team in the sport, McLaren Mercedes, since 1985, and backed champions from Juan-Manuel Fangio in the 50s to Jenson Button and Stéphane Ogier in 2014. Now we are proud to be part of the world's newest and most innovative open championship-a path-breaking initiative that, like TAG Heuer, is a fusion of engineering, technology, sport, science, and design - all combining to drive the change towards a better tomorrow."
In all, 10 cities will play host to the Formula E series, including Putrajaya, Malaysia, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Punta del Este, Uruguay, Miami and Long Beach in the United States, and Berlin and Monte Carlo in Europe.
TAG Heuer's colors and crest will line the street circuits of each Formula E city. They will also be worn by the crew and car of TAG Heuer's other Formula E partner: China Racing Formula E Team and its drivers Nelson Piquet, Ho-Pin Tung and Antonio Garcia.

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...
