Swiss watch company comes up with limited-edition glasses.
Swiss watch company Tag Heuer is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the death of Brazilian Formula One legend Ayrton Senna on May 1 with a new limited edition pair of glasses.
TAG Heuer’s “Avant-Garde Eyewear: the Ayrton Senna limited edition” was created to celebrate the life of the three-time Formula One world champion, who was tragically killed in an accident at the San Marino Grand Prix on May 1, 1994.
Crafted from Monel (a specialist nickel-copper alloy), the glasses feature over-stitched calfskin arms and sporty polarised grey polycarbonate lenses. But you’d better act fast – only 614 copies of the glasses have been made, and they’ll sell for €1,900 (RM8,540).
If you can’t get your hands on the limited-edition numbers, there’s also a second style available for €260 (RM1,170) with acetate arms and a metal frame. A portion of proceeds from the sales of the glasses will go to Ayrton Senna Institute which supports education projects for young Brazilians.
