TAG Heuer unveils new timepieces in honour of F1 legend Ayrton Senna
TAG Heuer has launched two new timepieces ahead of the Abu Dhabi Formula 1, both a tribute to F1 racing legend Ayrton Senna.
The two pieces feature nods to both his racing team and uniform, as well as the love of his home country: Brazil.
The first watch is a Carrera Calibre Heuer 02T Ayrton Senna Special Edition 2019. The watch itself features a matt black ceramic case with matching tachymeter bezel. There are also subtle nods to the yellow and green Brazilian flag on the dial and in the stitching on the strap.
Elsewhere you get a yellow S for Senna on the chronograph counter, while Senna is written on the back of the bezel. You also get a sapphire crystal case back with a stylised yellow and green image of Senna in his helmet engraved.
This edition is limited to just 65 pieces (the number of pole positions Senna claimed during his career).
Second up is the Formula 1 edition, Calibre 16 Ayrton Senan Special Edition 2019.
The 25-year-tribute features an engraving of Senna’s helmet on the case back, and his name at the 1 o’clock position on the fixed back of the ceramic bezel. The timepiece comes with an S-shaped bracelet, and also features a driver’s extension – to allow it to be worn over a racing suit.
The 44-millimetre timepiece has a punch of red over the lacquered indexes. Under the hood, you get an automatic self-winding chronograph Caliber 16.
