Summer is now arrived and the desire of sea becomes increasingly irresistible, so after speaking of watches Cartier, Chopard, Locman, Longines and Montblanc is the time to choose a good Dive watch to enjoy the season and water in complete tranquillity.
Among the novelties in the field of watches Sub seen at Basel-the most important exhibition of watchmaking in the world- a place of honor belongs to Tudor watches.
Tudor watches history
The Tudor brand has started its history in 1926 as younger brother of the famous Rolex award, but today it’s definitely become an adult and independent brand with high ambitions.
The Tudor watches symbol is a shield, which can be found on the dial, Crown and caseback Recalling the Genevan origin.
Since the late 70 ‘s to the mid 90 ‘s Tudor components-especially Crown and cash-carryby Rolex and Tudor used Rolex bracelets until 1971, when he launched his first bracelet on a woman.
Like most siblings, even the watches Rolex Tudor tried to distinguish itself from not only using modified ETA movements instead of Rolex movements, but especially bringing out their personalities. This has led the brand to break away from the giant Rolex and to focus on the entire production cycle exclusively.
In the crowded parterre of the professional watches, for those who love adventures by sea and land, Tudor watches have high technology and precision mechanics.
Simply browse through a catalog of Tudor watches to realize that there is spoilt for choice with models to suit all tastes. There are many color combinations of the dials, I find all chromatically managed and taste great. Let’s say it’s hard to find competitors in the high range of sports watches.
There is one detail that I want to emphasize: in an industry where all brands have cut 42 mm diameter maxi clocks up, Tudor watches come out from the Pack with a measure of great appeal.
The Tudor North Flag
On the podium of my preferences between Tudor watches there is the North Flag: a model basic, entirely produced in house and with an interesting price-quality ratio.
The Tudor North Flag is available with a stainless steel bracelet, either with a black leather strap with yellow stitching, both with clasp (folding) and safety catch. In the second version is a really refined and unusual detail.
Between Tudor watches the North Flag is a simply wonderful model: diameter 40 mm case, transparent screw-down case, reserve from 70 hours visible in a small indicator at 9 o’clock, scratch-resistant glass and ability to dive up to 100 metres! Of course, needless to say, in case you want to make the most of the ability sub of this watch should first make an ad hoc course! Read more on iamaccepted.com.
Seriously, I think it’s nice to buy a watch to test everything, even of our distractions, and to continue to be faithful always indicating the exact time since it’s also a COSC-certified chronometer.
The design of the dial and case has a vague taste years ‘ 70 and a strong character having regard to the chest with the profile, the square and the integrated bracelet lugs.The touch of yellow, then, gives this Tudor style further oomph.
In light of the combination of high technical and aesthetic qualities are interesting, the Tudor North Flag has a very attractive and competitive price right now on the market: € 3500 (steel version) and € 3400 (leather version). I know, it’s not cheap, but I think it’s worth it to wear a watch, sober and gritty that you can safely use on any occasion.
Even for women are also very interesting models, but maybe I will write in the future.
For the moment I would like to conclude by recalling the slogan Tudor watches: be anything but obvious. Here, not only looks like theunderstatement is démodé, but that the efforts will go in the opposite direction and be evident at all costs.
