Hands-On With TAG Heuer Formula 1 Senna WAZ1012.BA0883 Watch
New to the 2016 Senna collection is the addition of a 3-hand quartz watch. And it’s a true partner watch to the Chronograph, with a matching 43mm case, “Legends” bracelet and black and red colour scheme.
Dial & Bezel
The 2016 Senna Edition features a black dial with red detailing- the “Formula 1” text on the dial and the 15, 30 and 45 minute markers joining the 60 minute triangle on the inner minuterie flange. Of course, there is also the red Senna logo, this time appearing at the 9 o’clock position rather than 3 o’clock as on the chrono.
The fixed bezel also features the Senna name and logo in addition to a 5-minute interval 60-minute scale.
2016 TAG Heuer Formula 1 Watch When relaunched in 2015, the Formula 1 quartz watch was offered with a 41mm case, 2mm smaller than its chronograph brother. But in the age of Swiss TAG Heuer up-sizing, the 2016 models have grown to 43mm, with the chronograph thankfully staying at the same size rather than pushing up to 44/ 45mm.
The same “Legends” bracelet from the Link series is fitted to the Formula 1 watch, and while the combination sounds odd on paper, it looks the goods in these photos.
The caseback on the watch edition is the same as the one offered on the chronograph- no changes to be seen here. Powering the watch is the Ronda 6003D movement.
