TAG Heuer Formula 1 Chronograph Senna Edition
Ayrton Senna’s relationship with TAG Heuer began 1988, when he joined the McLaren-Honda Formula 1 team. TAG Heuer own 50% of McLaren, but Ron Dennis of McLaren was a also shareholder in TAG Heuer.
Senna wore both a 6000 series and a S/el Digital/ Analogue Chronograph. At this time, there was no Senna special edition timepieces – These didn’t begin until 1994 where Senna signed a deal to create a limited edition run of the 6000 series with his name. Sadly, Aryton died later that year on the 1st May. TAG Heuer released the 6000 Senna later that year, with a share of profits donated to the Senna Foundation.
Each watch features the famous stylized red lacquered Senna ‘S’ on the dial, case back and bezel, complete with a tachymeter scale, giving the watch a real racing spirit and performance feel. The timepiece rests the iconic ‘Legend’ bracelet, with its S-shaped links, the same style worn by Ayrton but more rounded for optimum comfort.
“I just love racing. I just love the challenge of beating somebody else. When you are under a lot of pressure, the objective is to be the one that can put together the combination of aggression and calculation that will get the best result. And, more than anything, you need a very clear mind to understand exactly when to be aggressive and when to be calculating. To win the championship, you need the combination of those elements.”
