    Wow that’s a gorgeous looking bracelet on the
    CBG2013. The strap for the CBG2014 looks great too. The same design in leather would have been amazingnon the Tourbi. The most expensive version is let down a little I think by having a rather unimaginative strap. All very nice additions to the range though. Thanks for the writeup.

    Great article!

    I'd like to see the S/S model in the metal.

    Given the choice between the two entry models, I would take the Carrera.

    What's going on with the date window. First we didn't have a date window (frame) and now it's not in the middle of whatever that's supposed to be...

    I wish they'd use the yellow and green theme of Senna's helmet/Brazilian flag on these watches. I liked the Senna F1 they did a few years back.

    Sadly, and rather unimaginatively, they seem to just use red and black for any racing/car related model (the AM F1 model is probably the exception).

    It is a bit strange they have the register hands sticking out so far from the movement. The Heuer 02 Carrera models have the support post like things that help fill that gap. This however doesn't and that seems strange to me.

    Yes but you must remember these watches have absolutely nothing to do with Senna and everything to do with simply slapping a name that they think will sell on a watch that has been tarted up with minimal effort.

    I have to admit, this watch is starting to grow on me. Smart of TAG Heuer to use Senna's helmet & racing suit in their ad campaign, I think that's having an effect on me. LOL.

    I love those colors too! I can't afford the full size helmet, nor do I have the space in my office. I've got a 1/4 scale replica helmet instead.
    This is my little homage to Senna. :)
