TAG Heuer’s relationship with brand ambassador Ayrton Senna began in 1988, when Ayrton Senna won his first F1 world championship. Today, nearly 35 years later, Replica TAG Heuer pays tribute to the racing legend once again with a new F1 series special edition automatic chronograph (model: CAZ201D.BA0633).
The new watch is made of stainless steel with a case diameter of 44 mm, which has been brushed and polished alternately. The fixed bezel features a black ceramic insert featuring a white tachymeter scale and a red “Senna-S” logo. The number 400 refers to 400kph, a speed never reached in actual F1 racing. Even the crown and chronograph buttons are decorated with red rings, echoing the color of the dial and highlighting the dynamic style of this watch.
The slate-grey sunburst dial is paired with three recessed sub-dials, each decorated with a concentric pattern and accented with red accents. 12-hour counter with red “Senna-S” logo, date window at 3 o’clock. There is a minute and second scale ring on the outer edge of the disc, and the timing accuracy can reach 1/4 second. The hour and minute hands and the applied hour-markers are inlaid with Super-LumiNova, which ensures excellent reading even in dark environments.
With a sealed case back, this watch houses the Calibre 16 self-winding chronograph movement. The movement beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz) and provides a 42-hour power reserve at full strings. The caseback is engraved with the silhouette of Ayrton Senna wearing a racing helmet, the Replica TAG Heuer logo, and the words “Senna Special Edition”.
Replica TAG Heuer’s new F1 Series Senna Special Edition Automatic Chronograph comes with an “S” shaped stainless steel bracelet with a brushed finish and a folding clasp and driver extension. It is reported that the official website price of the watch is 26,200 yuan.
