Earlier this year, three sporty Ayrton Senna special edition watches from Replica TAG Heuer were announced to mark 30 years since the champion race car driver won the Monaco Grand Prix for the first time in 1987. More important are the watches themselves, which are cool-looking with a mix of different design touches, in addition to the more explicit Senna logo branding.
Beginning with the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 Ayrton Senna Replica, this shows that the relatively recently introduced Heuer-01 is a growing collection with a fluid style and identity.
With the introduction of a version in ceramic, as well as a welcome 43mm version of the TAG Heuer Heuer-01 Replica Watch, it kind of makes me think we could have had a 43mm version in black ceramic, which would have been cool. Instead, we are back up to a formidable 45mm in black PVD-coated, brushed steel.
The Luxury Tag Heuer Replica is powered, of course, by TAG’s in-house Heuer-01 movement which we have discussed in detail in previous articles and reviews. It features a column wheel for smoother chronograph operation and runs at 4Hz with a respectable 50 hour power reserve.
