Serving as tribute to the motor-racing legend Ayrton Senna, TAG Heuer have released their latest 2020 Formula 1 Senna Limited Edition in two variations. The first is a remarkable automatic chronograph featuring the brand’s iconic Calibre 16 movement and the second is a classic quartz chronograph beautifully detailed in Senna’s unmissable yellow and black colour scheme.
It’s clear that TAG’s loyalty to Ayrton Senna is still as strong as ever, with a huge number of TAG Heuer Senna Special Edition watches having been released over the years. The Formula 1 driver, who was considered one of the greatest of his time, became the face of the first #dontcrackunderpressure campaign in 1991 and since, TAG Heuer have honoured “Magic Senna’s” talent and panache in several releases since. The new duo of TAG Heuer Formula 1 Senna 2020 watches once again underscores their partnership which has become one of the most remarkable alliances in the sporting world.
“We are very happy to be part of another special launch reflecting our partnership with TAG Heuer. The 2020 collection is inspired by Ayrton’s commitment to overcoming limits. Each year, we dedicate ourselves to introducing innovative new models, and this one uses 400 km/h to represent the ongoing pursuit of speeds that once seemed unattainable. It is a part of Ayrton’s legacy, which continues to motivate TAG Heuer in its never-ending quest to create the perfect watch.” - Bianca Senna, Ayrton Senna’s niece and CEO of Senna Brands.
Both TAG Heuer Formula 1 Senna 2020 watches feature a unique black ceramic bezel with a tachymeter scale that goes up to 400km/h. This special detail marks a speed that no racing team has reached but one they are getting closer and closer to every season. It is the daring spirit of today’s modern-day drivers that Ayrton Senna would have admired and his legacy of record-breaking remains close to their hearts to this day.
The automatic version of the two, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Calibre 16 Chronograph Senna Special Edition 2020, is handsomely presented with a 44mm fine brushed and polished stainless steel case with a black ceramic fixed tachymeter bezel, flat sapphire crystal glass and a stainless steel screw down crown to assist in its water resistance of 200 metres. Housed within is the automatic Calibre 16 movement which provides hours, minutes and chronograph seconds, small seconds, 30 minutes counter, 12 hours counter, a date window at 3 o’clock and a power reserve of 42 hours.
Each complication on the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Calibre 16 Chronograph Senna Special Edition 2020 is displayed on a sunray-brushed anthracite dial with shimmering black azurage counters, white Superluminova hands and rhodium applied indexes. Ayrton Senna is wonderfully tributed on the dial at the 6 o’clock position and on the bezel through his iconic yellow logo. Yellow is also found on the stitching of the black calfskin leather strap with black lining to match the colourful details on the dial. An additional nod to Senna can be found on the strap with the letter “S” embossed on the side.
Now onto the quartz model, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Chronograph Senna Special Edition. This remarkable Swiss made piece serves as a prime example of sporting power and prestige with its high-precision quartz movement providing the very best performance – just as you’d expect from TAG Heuer. It provides classic central hands for hours, minutes and chronograph seconds, small seconds counter, a 1/10th second chronograph counter and minute chronograph counter. The anthracite grey brushed dial also delivers a date window at the 4 o’clock position.
The 43mm stainless steel case of the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Quartz Chronograph Senna Special Edition 2020 is engineered from stainless steel with a fine-brushed finish. It comes equipped with a ultra-resistant black ceramic bezel, a screw down case back and crown, sapphire crystal glass and a water resistant rating of 200 metres. Just like it’s automatic counterpart, the quartz model honours the motor-racing hero with plenty of sporty yellow accents and the Senna logo on the dial and bezel. To complete the look of this Senna special edition, a stainless steel bracelet with the iconic double-S links is provided alongside a folding clasp with double safety system and pilot extension.
