TAG Heuer Formula 1 Senna Special Edition 2020

TAG Heuer pays tribute to motor-racing legend Ayrton Senna, by presenting Formula 1 Senna Special Edition 2020 in two variations – an automatic chronograph and a quartz chronograph.

Considered one of the best drivers of all time, Ayrton Senna embodies the quest for perfection and ultimate performance. Fast and fearless, the Brazilian never stopped pushing himself beyond the limit so that audiences could experience races full of drama and passion.

TAG Heuer Formula 1 Senna Special Edition 2020

Hinting at the racing legend’s personal record speed of 340 km/h and the way he continues to inspire today’s drivers to push the limits of the sport, these new special editions both feature a ceramic bezel with a tachymeter scale that goes up to 400 km/h.

This detail distinguishes the Senna-inspired timepieces from other models in the TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection, which usually go up to 240 km/h. Though 400 km/h is a limit that no team in the sport has reached, they are getting closer and closer every season.

Ayrton Senna’s legacy continues to represent TAG Heuer’s driven and daring spirit and inspires bold timepieces such as this year’s special-edition creations.

TAG Heuer Formula 1 Calibre 16 Chronograph Senna Special Edition 2020

The robust 44 mm TAG Heuer Formula 1 Calibre 16 Chronograph Senna Special Edition 2020 features a sunray-brushed anthracite dial with shimmering black “azurage” minute, hour and permanent second counters.

The white Super-LumiNova® coating on the rhodium-plated applied indexes and hands ensure at-a-glance legibility at all speeds and in all lighting conditions.

This luxurious yet sporty timepiece is presented on a black calfskin strap with black lining and Senna yellow stitching that matches the colourful details on the dial, around the date window, around the bezel and on the top pusher and crown. An additional nod to Senna is the embossed “S” pattern on the strap, which is reminiscent of the links on his favourite TAG Heuer stainless-steel bracelet.

The stainless-steel folding clasp has a double safety system and a pilot extension that makes it possible to wear the watch over a driving suit. Powering this special-edition timepiece is the automatic Calibre 16, which is protected by a stainless-steel screw-down caseback engraved with the Senna logo.
