The famous Big Bang All Black is the model that provided the inspiration for Hublot
and the Ayrton Senna Institute and their creation bearing the driver's name. This
sophisticated black watch is composed of similar materials to those used in the
automotive industry, and executed with attention down to the last detail in the search
for the ultimate performance. State-of-the-art technology, painstaking care, the quest
for avant-garde design and the perfect finish are all common factors that lead to
success. The distinguishing features of the Ayrton Senna watch, aside from the
champion's signature splashed across the dial in red, are the Chronograph Split-
Second hand and the Power Reserve Indicator. The Split-Second hand can be used
to record an intermediate time by means of the two chronograph seconds hands.
When recording a time, the first so-called "Split-Second" hand is stopped while the
second continues to move. This mechanism makes it possible to observe the lapsed
period. Then, by pressing the push-piece a second time, the hand is made to catch
up with and remain superposed on the seconds hand. The function can be used to
calculate the intermediate time of one runner, or the times of two runners.
Personalised touches to this exceptional timepiece include the Split-Second hand
cloaked in green and yellow, the colours of Brazil, and the push-piece in red to coordinate
with the signature of Ayrton Senna displayed on the dial.
From the outset, Hublot has embodied design and innovation that differ markedly from the established watchmaking order. With the impetus provided by Jean-Claude Biver, by 2004 these values had already become the basis of a new DNA, leading the brand to develop particularly audacious timepieces – most of them with a highly-developed sporting aspect.Find out more >
