This replica TAG Heuer Calibre 16 Senna edition (available in two editions, one in stainless steel and one PVD Coated) uses a 44mm case with a more rounded shape that differs from the usual angular case of the Carrera. In fact, this Carrera uses the case of another watch from the actual collection, the Grand Carrera, meaning the modern and sport oriented range of watches.
The same ‘deja-vu‘ feeling also comes when looking at the bracelet. In fact, as a tribute to Senna that used to wear the very first edition of the TAG Heuer Link, this special edition brings back the rounded bracelet with metallic links shaped in S. From my own experience, this is certainly one of the most comfortable bracelet ever – and a solid one too.
The first TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Senna comes in satined stainless steel – combined with the bracelet – and with a grey and black dial. Several red accents enliven the dial, including red tips on the hands, on the indexes, on the crown and the red S signature (for Ayrton Senna) at 3.
The second TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Senna comes in a full black theme. The same 44m case but in titanium (however without the integrated end-links) is here fully coated with titanium-carbide – including also the bezel, the crown, the pushers and the caseback. The dial is also fully dark but keeps the same red accents on the hands, indexes and Senna logos. This black edition of the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Senna will be delivered on a black rubber strap with a tyre-like texture.
