TAG HEUER FORMULA 1

AYRTON SENNA LIMITED EDITIONS

The talent and panache of Ayrton Senna ensured he left a lasting mark on Formula 1, more so than any driver before or since. “Magic Senna” is considered by his peers to be one of the greatest drivers the world has ever seen: three world championship titles (1988, 1990 and 1991), 65 pole positions, and 41 Grand Prix victories. The latter include the Monaco Grand Prix, which he won for the first time in 1987.

Two new limited edition Formula 1 models was released in tribute to the driver to celebrate the 30th anniversary of this victory. One of which is the chronograph version, TAG Heuer’s archetypal “motor racing” model. Both watches are 43 mm in diameter and black, highlighted with touches of red, a combination which is a clear nod to the spirit of high speed racing. The dial features three red lines, hinting at the tracks left by a speeding race car. The chronograph version features a quartz movement accurate to a tenth of a second – an indispensable feature in a motor racing watch – powering the small counter at 6 o’clock, with the minute counter at 9 o’clock and the running seconds counter at 3 o’clock.

Both the two Formula 1 models in this limited edition all proudly display the famous stylised red lacquer “S”, the exclusive Senna symbol, on the dial and bezel. The bezel also has a minute track, lending the pieces a racing feel and evoking the exceptional skill of Senna. Of course, they are all available with the iconic bracelet with S-shaped links, as adopted by Ayrton at the height of his achievements. It is both an iconic design and a standard bearer in terms of ergonomics and wearer comfort.
