Introducing The Tudor Heritage Chronograph
April 2, 2010
Tudor introduced a great looking chronograph at Baselworld this year. The new Tudor Heritage Chrono, which is based on the 1970s Tudor Monte Carlo (shown above). The Heritage Chrono looks very similar to the original, except the modern version is 42 mm and has a sapphire crystal, whereas the original was 40 mm with a plexiglass crystal. It is priced at about $5,000, which is impressive considering the watch is built to Rolex standards, and that the vintage models can run ten grand plus. The Tudor Heritage Chrono comes in a dark or light dial, with a metal bracelet or a multi-colored strap.
Polished and satin-fisnihed 42 mm steel case. Steel bi-diretional rotating bezel with black disc. Screw-down crown and pushers. Sapphire crystal. Water-resistant to 150 meters. Functions include hours, minutes, seconds, date and chronograph.
