Wristwatches to Pay Tribute to Ayrton Senna


November 3, 2010 would have brought the 50th birthday of the legendary Brazilian driver - Ayrton Senna. Swiss luxury watchmaker Hublot has created two exclusive limited edition timepieces to pay tribute to Ayrton Senna.

The eye-catching Hublot King Power Ayrton Senna and King Power Tourbillon Ayrton Senna watches are sculptured from materials used in Formula 1. The cases are rendered in carbon fiber and incorporate ceramic bezels. The holes featured by the bezels are inspired by an F1 brake disk. The cases are presented on straps from Nomex, the material used for F1 drivers' suits.

The sapphire crystals of both timepieces demonstrate Ayrton Senna's signature in yellow.

The King Power Tourbillon Ayrton Senna watch, limited to just 10 units, shows off a commemorative engraving on the case-back. Each engraving is different, being suggested by one of 10 brightest moments in the driver's career.
