Detail on Tudor Heritage Chrono watch Blue — Baselworld 2013



This is the magic of Basel: beau­ti­ful watches unveiled every day. On the other hand it is also dif­fi­cult to make choices to present these won­ders. As we return to the topic again for a few weeks; time to present you our favorite watch. But here is one, if I may say in the top 3 for a lot of rea­sons: the Tudor Her­itage Chrono Blue.

The beau­ti­ful Tudor Her­itage Chrono Blue was designed so beau­ti­ful and so well; it will prob­a­bly be an icon of the future. A big icon, as was his older Tudor Mon­te­carlo chrono­graph, ref­er­ence 7169, and a his­toric chrono­graph launched in 1973 and pro­duced for only few years. Because of its great suc­cess this ver­sion remains highly sought by collectors.

So to revive this leg­endary model, Tudor brand has cho­sen to rein­ter­pret in 2013, always with the “  spirit of resort chic and sophis­ti­cated 60s and 70s, and a marked empha­sis Mediter­ranean warmth, glam­our and care­less­ness  , “says Tudor in a state­ment. Dif­fi­cult to say more: it iden­ti­fies exactly the issues and the spirit of the watch.

If all the aes­thetic codes that have con­tributed to the recog­ni­tion of the his­tor­i­cal model remains — syn­the­sis of the orig­i­nal spirit of the piece and fidelity in the repro­duc­tion of key fea­tures — Work­shop Style Tudor injected many mod­ern touches to refresh the iconic spirit of the room and give it a time­less force.

As we saw with the lat­est Sea­mas­ter Planet Ocean Omega GMT, orange and blue col­ors are up to date, and absolutely mod­ern. They give the watch, com­bined with a beau­ti­ful light gray, elk heat and roots both ter­res­trial and aquatic.

Tudor Heritage Chrono watch Blue

With a box of 42 mm against 40 mm for one of the time this new chrono fea­tures a mechan­i­cal chrono­graph move­ment with auto­matic wind­ing of high qual­ity, with a power reserve of 42 hours. The time­piece is water resis­tant to 150 meters.

The way bezel with hard blue anodized alu­minum sur­rounds the dial is beautiful.

The dial fea­tures three-dimensional index o’clock coated with two metal­lic wedges defin­ing a filled Super­Lu­mi­nova for more force area and opti­mal read­abil­ity. Both coun­ters are enrolled in two trape­zoidal shapes, with the counter at 3 o’clock with the small sec­onds at 9 o’clock and that is that of the 45 min­utes, a counter that has marked the his­tory of Tudor chrono­graphs in the 70’s crown and push­ers are char­ac­ter­ized by a sur­face treat­ment knurled, chrome fin­ish and the pres­ence of a coat of blue paint put on the crown.

Beauty is deliv­ered with two straps: one with steel fold­ing clasp; and the other fab­ric rein­forced with buckle. This fab­ric strap was devel­oped by a house that per­pet­u­ates this artis­tic pro­fes­sion and takes the char­ac­ter­is­tic col­ors of the dial, in addi­tion to offer­ing excep­tional comfort.

With the release of the watch Tudor Her­itage Black Bay and the new Her­itage Chrono, Tudor sees his side sky­rocket and tipped the heart of many fans. A brand to watch closely; pro­vided that it con­tin­ues like this…
