Gulf Weekly Jalal’s timely tips on the latest trends

To pay tribute to one of the most renowned Formula One champions and mark 25 years since his untimely death, TAG Heuer has launched two timepieces that celebrate Ayrton Senna.

The designers included features reminiscent of Senna’s preferred watch style and love of his home country, Brazil. As much a legend in TAG Heuer’s past as in the sport of Formula One racing, Senna was the face of the avant-garde watchmaker’s first “Don’t Crack Under Pressure” campaign in 1991 – a fitting role for a racer as ambitious, fearless and committed as the Brazilian driver.

The 45 mm TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre Heuer 02T automatic chronograph features a matt black ceramic case and matching tachymeter bezel and is subtly accentuated by the yellow and green colours of the Brazilian flag. There is green stitching on the black rubber and leather strap and a yellow “S” for Senna on the chronograph counter. “SENNA” is written in yellow on the fixed black ceramic tachymeter bezel.

Meanwhile, TAG Heuer’s Formula 1 Calibre 16 Ayrton Senna Special Edition 2019 features an engraving of Senna’s iconic helmet on its steel screw-down caseback and his name in white at 1 o’clock on the fixed polished black ceramic bezel with a tachymeter scale.

This timepiece is fitted with a sporty S-shaped bracelet, which Senna was personally fond of, and also features a driver’s extension to allow it to be worn over a racing suit.
