Holy Batman! I think I have found my perfect Sunday watch. Now when this years F1 season has ended I feel deprived from sports action. To keep my and other F1 fans blood pumping Hublot has launched an Ayrton Senna edition of their popular watch, Big Bang.
The Brazilian deserve this watch because he is one of the greatest drivers who have ever lived. Hublot is the right watch manufacturer to have designed this watch. It looks very high tech, stealthy, powerful but yet very subtle. The black on black theme combined with the exceptional details make my mouth water. Rubber straps are cool, very comfortable to wear and suitable for a racing inspired watches. Leaving the screws on the case and bezel exposed and unpainted gives a captivating mechanic impression. Finally there is the price which is………………..*drum rolls*…………25 000€. That is more or less what a Mini Cooper S cost.
Those who lack interest in F1 might want to know that Senna was a former triple world champion. Sorrowfully his live came to end in 1994 when he crashed on the San Marino track in Italy. F1 cars are incredibly safe and it wasn’t the violent impact itself that killed him. A small metal fragment from his front suspension broke loose during the crash as pierced his visor above the right eye, went straight through to the back of his head and resulted in brain death. Just like that one of the greatest drivers who have ever lived was gone.
