After the huge success of ‘Big Bang Senna’, released in 2007, the ‘Big Bang Foudroyante Senna’, launched in Tokyo in 2009, and the ‘King Power Ayrton Senna’, launched during the GP of Brazil 2010 in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the birth of the pilot, Hublot is celebrating the 41 victories of Ayrton Senna and his three world championships with a limited edition of three models with 41 pieces each.
Ricardo Guadalupe welcomed the pilot Bruno Senna, who traveled to Switzerland especially for the launch. Bruno made a tour of the factory, and had the opportunity to see the first models of the MP-06 Senna in production. He seemed very interested in manufacturing processes, making technical questions about the design of the watches watchmakers. This piece, produced in honor of the Brazilian idol, is the most sophisticated Hublot produced today.
“We are very flattered to have the Hublot as one of our oldest partners and highly honored they have chosen to present the collection SENNA design and innovative technology company.
