Today we would like to remember a very special person:
Three-time Formula 1 world champion Ayrton Senna died on 1 May 1994. He was just 34 years old when he suffered a tragic accident. At the San Marino Grand Prix. On the Imola circuit, Senna tragically crashed in the Tamburello curve. Many people still remember this event and look back on that day with sadness. Nevertheless, Senna left behind a lot of positive things and therefore his deeds remain unforgotten until today unforgotten.
Ayrton Senna would have turned 61 on 21 March. In honour of this day, we would like to remember a very special person who achieved a lot during his life and beyond achieved a lot in the course of his life and beyond. He brought a lot of positive things to this world by being one of the people who took care of unemployment associations and children’s hospitals. His vision of a better Brazil also remains in people’s minds to this day, and he made significant contributions to make the world a better place. The collaboration with Tag Heuer during his lifetime has continued to this day.
The name Senna is probably one of the few names that was distinctly typical of determination and efficiency in one person. He became known at that time through his successes in the Grand Prix and was able to establish a true luminary status there over time. This person was therefore not only distinguished by his determination and his confident appearance, but he also inspired the audience with his exceptional character traits and charismatic qualities. In honour of his birthday, we therefore present the Senna and Tag Heuer collection.
The special edition, which arrives either as a 44 mm automatic or 43 mm quartz model, scores points in terms of exquisite details as well as exquisite looks and leaves an unmistakable impression on the viewer that will do credit to the name Senna even years later. The collaboration between Senna and Tag Heuer developed then as now into an undisputed masterpiece of international watchmaking history. The symbiosis of these two leaders in their respective fields makes it clear how splendidly such precise and innovative timepieces sit on the wrist of the wearer and how remarkably proficiently the attention to detail has been applied here. In this context, the characteristics of these new special editions are distinguished above all by their lovingly chosen compositions as well as eye-catching but equally carefully selected components.

After all, it’s the details that matter, and this watch scores equally with dynamism and elegance.
