TAG Heuer commends the 30th commemoration of Ayrton Senna’s first victory at the Monaco Grand Prix, delivering three extraordinary version watches in accolade for the incredible Brazilian driver. In his splendid, too-short vocation, Ayrton Senna thundered to three big showdowns, 41 triumphs and 65 post positions is as yet viewed as one of, if not the, best ever drivers in F1! The watches were divulged for the current week-end in Monaco and we have live photos.

The first, and for us at Monochrome, generally intriguing of these watches is a lively, hustling enlivened Heuer01 chronograph. It is clad in PVD steel combined with red accents and the Senna plan components, including the S logo which is reminiscent of a S-chicane on a race track.

The 45mm case includes a dark earthenware bezel with a tachymeter scale. The crown is made of steel and elastic. The pushers are in PVD steel – the beginning/stop pusher is featured in red. The skeleton dial (Drive Timer spread out) with a skeleton date plate is exceptionally specialized; it comes with different completions to make a feeling of profundity and contrast.

The sapphire case back is colored and bears the Senna and TAG Heuer logo. It permits survey of the in-house Heuer 01 programmed section wheel chronograph development. This 13”’ type ticks at 4 Hz. for a force hold of 50 hours. The state of the rotor is suggestive of a directing wheel. The segment wheel is red.

The TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer01 SENNA 2017 release is worn on the mark S-formed connection wristband. I’m typically not an aficionado of the ‘interface’ wristband but rather I think it functions admirably here with the dark completion and auto foundation. Likewise, it is especially pertinent as it was worn by Senna himself.

Two other Senna exceptional version watches dependent on TAG Heuer Formula 1 models were divulged on the event of the Monaco Grand Prix. For more data, visit www.tagheuer.com
