TO THE MEMORY OF A CHAMPION

Ayrton Senna, a legendary figure in Formula 1 racing, was constantly seeking perfection during his career. Just like TAG Heuer with these two new models!

1991.A face and a slogan symbolising the TAG Heuer spirit appeared in magazines and on billboards. A photograph of Ayrton Senna, then at his peak, along with the potent phrase Don’t crack under pressure. The Brazilian driver symbolised top-level car racing and is still a reference today, years after his tragic death on the Imola racetrack. To pay him a new homage, the brand has released the chronograph Carrera Heuer 02 Tourbillon Special Editions Ayrton Senna.

The 175 watches combine a 45mm-wide steel and ceramic case with an open-work dial and a bezel with a tachymetric scale. The overall effect of the monochrome style, highlighted by Senna’s signature in red lacquer, is evocative of both technique and sport.

The watch features a seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock and a sapphire crystal back for the 43mm-wide brushed steel case, which is water-resistant down to 100m. The time elements are powered smoothly and accurately by an automatic Heuer 02 movement. This model has a strap with a flexible structure formed by double-S links, providing comfort to a rarely equalled level.
