30 years ago Ayrton Senna won for the first time, the mythical Grand Prix of Monaco, Formula 1. To celebrate this important date, TAG Heuer has presented the new Special Editions Senna collection. Prior to Ayrton Se nna no driver had left the mark in the Formula One world. Three times world champion, 1988, 1990 and 1991, 65 pole positions, 41 victories in the Grand Prix. And for the first time, TAG Heuer’s famous Heuer-01 manufacturing movement reports Senna’s codes. The Carrera Heuer-01 chronograph in brushed steel with red touches, with a 45 mm case, features a skeleton dial and sapphire backing that allow you to admire the beautiful mechanics of the manufacturing movement.

Ayrton-Senna-Tag-Heuer.jpgThe other two pieces of the series Senna are one in chronograph version. In these two 43 mm diameter watches, black is lit by a few red touches. The quadrant features a triple red line that resembles racing cars. In the chronograph version, the precision of the tenth of a second quartz movement, an indispensable element for a running watch, is indicated by the small counter at 6 o’clock; Instead, the minute counter is placed at 9 o’clock and that of the second continuous at 3 o’clock.

The 3 Ayrton S enna special watches feature the famous “S” styled Ayrton Senna, red lacquer on the dial, and a minute scale bezel that gives these models a “Racing” character. They are all obviously complemented by the S-shaped S-shaped cuff, the same one adopted by Ayrton at the time. This bracelet is a point of reference for ergonomics and comfort on the wrist. In the Carrera Heuer-01 model, all meshes are curved, round, round, round, round on the sides, and this makes them particularly comfortable.
