Baselworld 2013: Tudor Heritage Chrono Blue

TUDOR Heritage Chrono Blue 1
In the rich saga of TUDOR historic chronographs, reference 7169 – better known to aficionados as the TUDOR "Montecarlo" chronograph – is an absolute icon. Since its launch in 1973, it has been produced in a number of different versions, the most fascinating featured distinctive touches of blue, grey and orange. This rare, historic chronograph was produced for only a few years. Today,it is greatly prized by collectors and is steadily increasing in value. To revitalize this legendary chronograph – imbued with the spirit of chic, sophisticated holiday destinations of the 1960s and1970s, and reminiscent of carefree Mediterranean warmth and glamour – TUDOR has decided to reinterpret it and unveil the new TUDOR Heritage Chrono Blue.

TUDOR's approach to the design of this watch was exactly the same as for all the watches in the Heritage line since 2010. Far from being merely a new version, it is a unique reinterpretation in which past, present and future converge in both time and style. While all the aesthetic codes that contributed to the recognition of the historic model remain – a synthesis of the original spirit of the timepiece and a faithful reproduction of its key characteristics – TUDOR's Style Workshop has added many modern touches to update the iconic spirit of this watch and endow it with a timeless strength to make it "tomorrow's icon". Available material includes an edited piece and still images.
