Big Bang Senna Foudroyante

Price not available

 

Today, in Japan, the second Big Bang with the motor-racing champion's signature was
launched. Within the framework of an exhibition of previously unpublished photos featuring
Ayrton Senna, taken by his photographer friend Norio Koike, Hublot confirmed its support
for the Instituto Ayrton Senna, founded by Viviane Senna, the sister of the late racing
driver. By her side, Jean-Claude Biver presented to the media and the public the second
version of the watch, called “Big Bang Senna Foudroyante”, part of the sales revenues of
which will be donated to the Instituto Ayrton Senna.

The Big Bang Foudroyante Senna, a 500-piece numbered limited series, sports the colours of
Brazil, like the first edition: yellow and green split-seconds hand, yellow minute markers,
Brazilian flag on the case-side element, Ayrton Senna's signature in green on a matt black dial,
and a yellow bezel lug. Its split-seconds chronograph movement features a new complication,
the Foudroyante, which enables the calculation of one-eighth of a second. The serial numbers
on the back are engraved in yellow ink on black ceramic, and the logo “Instituto Ayrton Senna”
appears as a transfer on the sapphire crystal.

The brand

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.
