Basel 2017 Impressive Tudor Release


Basel 2017 heralded some interesting new Tudor releases including the watch brand’s first in-house chronograph, the Black Bay Chrono Ref. 79350. Those who know Tudor watches may be familiar with the  Tudor Heritage Chrono which uses an ETA movement. It’s a highly  popular model but this new timepiece fires up their operation with a brand new calibre – the MT5813 automatic chronograph movement – which has been developed in collaboration with Breitling. That’s not a fact that advertised of course but it’s a nugget of information that will no doubt pique the interest of watch lovers who appreciate value for money – a tenet of the Tudor brand.


Basel 2017 Tudor:

Of course the watch remains altogether a trad ‘Black Bay’ with its classic diver indices, 45 minute counter, engraved tachymeter bezel and snowflake hand. It is however a little smaller at 41mm (the Heritage Chrono has a 42 mm steel case). Best of all, it boasts a 70-hour power reserve, again the Heritage Chrono runs for 42 hours, proving that this is a high performance timepiece and a significant evolution for the Swiss manufacture. While the aesthetics are kept classic thanks to a handsome black dial, the steel strap can be swapped for a denim-look riveted bracelet. At £3,430 and with this Breitling tip-off, it’s bound to sell like hot cakes when it is released early summertime.
