Swiss luxury watch brand TAG Heuer pays homage to ambassador Ayrton Senna and announces the new TAG Heuer Formula 1 Caliber 16 Chronograph Ayrton Senna Special Edition, featuring Senna’s original color red. ..
The collaboration between TAG Heuer and Ayrton Senna began in 1988. At that time, Senna swept F1 and became a world champion in 1988, 1989 and 1991.
TAG Heuer pays homage to Ayrton Senna’s legacy and continues his quest to create the perfect Formula 1 watch worn by legendary drivers.
In collaboration with the Senna brand, TAG Heuer designers have adopted a red color for this new model, named after Ayrton Senna’s original watch.
The design of the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Caliber 16 Chronograph Ayrton Senna Special Edition is an elegant combination of red, anthracite and black, following the design code of Senna’s icon “S”.
The red lacquer is represented by a pusher and crown at 2 o’clock and a double S at 12 o’clock, Senna’s iconic logo brand. In addition, the sub dial at 6 o’clock is also touched in red, and the Senna logo is also customized in red. The sporty and elegant design of this model stands out with its azure finish and this subdial.
The beautiful anthracite dial with a sunray finish is equipped with a minute, hour and second chronograph counter, and the dial is bright red to give off a bright shine. White superluminova is used for the rhodium-plated applied index and hands to achieve visibility that can be seen at a glance in all speed ranges and lighting conditions. The timepiece features an ultra-durable black ceramic bezel and is engraved with the 400 number, which symbolizes 400 km / h, which has never been reached in F1.
This reprint of the modern design is also inspired by Ayrton Senna’s first TAG Heuer chronograph and the famous “S / EL” bracelet. This impact-resistant bracelet features a folding clasp with driver extensions to fit the sleeves of your racing suit.
The TAG Heuer Formula 1 Caliber 16 Chronograph Ayrton Senna Special Edition is equipped with caliber 16. The case back uses a stainless steel screw-in case back engraved with the helmet that is the symbol of Senna, and a special engraving “SENNA SPECIAL EDITION” is engraved.
