To spice this review up, I was more than lucky to have the opportunity to take pictures of the original Monte Carlo references 7031 and 7032 and even better, I took pictures showing them together with the Heritage. I think this has to be a “web first”…
You can clearly see the size difference between the old and new watches. However, the dials looks quite similar.
Having had the Tudor Heritage Chronograph with black dial, I finally acquired the grey dial Heritage Chronograph which appears to be in higher demand since the beginning.
This Chronograph wears quite comfortable on your wrist with its 42mm case. Something I like are the pushers with black shiny laquer and the tire inspired crown which is understandable considering the heritage of this watch.
While the original vintage Chronographs are getting hard to find and have achieved a high pricelevel, this timepiece comes at a quite reasonable sticker price.
The grey dial is a clear reminiscence to the past. The bezel seems to be scratchproof.
A couple pictures from different angles.
Look at the crown and pushers, it is a unique look, isn’t it?
The loupe was applied afterwards and the watch is not delivered with the loupe. However, the loupe eases the reading of the date as well as it is a reminiscence of the past.
The clasp and bracelet are really comfortable and present nicely. This is at least as good as a Rolex bracelet.
Not only have we seen this retro revival timepiece from Tudor, but there are two new Submariner style vintage inspired timepieces which have appeared new on the block. The Pelagos and the Black Bay. I am curious to hold the first one of them in my hands.
