When the name Tudor is referenced, models, for example, “ Black Bay ” or “ Pelagos ” come into view. Without a doubt, the brand communicated (and made) a ton on these items – which are admittedly great watches. Notwithstanding, there are a greater number of watches in the assortment than these energetic, vintage-enlivened pieces – and that incorporates, for example, the “ Style “, the as of late presented “1926” or the Glamor – a watch that stayed under the radar for us… Until now. Today, the brand uncovers an overhauled and somewhat more manly form of this watch, presently furnished with a pristine adaptation of the manufacture movement. Meet the Tudor Glamor Double Date ref. 57100/57103.
Up as of not long ago, the Tudor Glamour had been completely in the shadows of the BB, Pelagos and other games models of Tudor. It was one of those watches that didn’t truly catch our consideration, for the most part on the grounds that the brand didn’t communicate about it. Be that as it may, Tudor today presents another rendition, not just with an updated plan and more refined dials, yet mostly with the presentation of the manufacture type in this assortment – and furthermore, another advancement of the brand’s own movement.
The Tudor Glamor Double Date will be, as is often the situation for the Rolex/Tudor Group, accessible in a variety of forms. Steel on leather, steel on an arm band, steel-and-gold on leather or on a two-tone wristband, with or without jewels on the dial… decisions for all preferences. The fundamental update concerns the case, which like its archetype, the ref. 57000, actually gauges 42mm in measurement (a steadfastly present day and manly case) and has been somewhat updated. As indicated by Tudor “The double bezel has a slight drop making a trademark help and delicately broadens the bends of the cleaned steel case.” Elegant however present day, dressy yet usable in many conditions (WR to 100m).
The dial is additionally new, with new surfaces and new shading combinations. Close by the exemplary dark dial and the “very Rolex” Champagne/gold choice, Tudor adds a decent silver dial with blue hands or silver dial with gold hands – surely the most adaptable variant, despite the fact that the blue hands give the watch more easygoing quality. Generally speaking, the Tudor Glamor Double Date 42mm will be accessible in dark with rhodium-plated or yellow gold-plated hour markers, champagne tone with yellow gold-plated hour markers, or opaline with blued files, with or without diamonds.
Several surfaces have been applied to the dials: a focal emblem with a gadroon design (vertical furrows), a fringe ring with sunray finish and a snailed little seconds counter. The files and hands are rather basic yet enlivened with a few aspects. The showcase comprises hours and minutes in the middle, little seconds at 6 o’clock and a double-date at 12 o’clock – a similar presentation as the past ref. 57000, yet there is news “under the hood”.
The fundamental curiosity is the movement that controls this showcase. In light of the brand’s manufacture type, the new Caliber MT5641, again COSC-ensured, depends on all the advances seen on the BB or the Pelagos: cross-over equilibrium connect, 70h force hold, variable latency offset with miniature change by screws and non-attractive silicon balance spring. The substitution of the second hand to 6 o’clock and the huge date at 12 o’clock with two isolated digits demonstrates that this movement is measured and that we’ll positively some more forms soon.
The updated Tudor Glamor Double Date 42mm with Manufacture Movement ref. 57100/57103 is now obvious on the brand’s site. Costs range from EUR 3,010 (steel on leather) and EUR 3,210 (steel on steel) to EUR 3,450 (steel-and-gold leather) and EUR 4,140 (steel-and-gold wristband). Precious stone dials require an extra EUR 690. More subtleties on www.tudorwatch.com .
