Tudor

Please allow me to draw your attention to Only Watch 2017

 

This synergy, under the patronage and support of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, driven by the enthusiasm shown by individuals within the brands and partners, shows a deep wish to help this noble cause. In six editions, Only Watch has raised more than 25 million euros for Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies (Monaco Association against Duchenne muscular dystrophy) helping make significant advances in research over a decade.

 

Christie’s will be conducting the auction for the first time 

31 Baselworld 2017 novelties that really impressed me.

Why 31? That´s the number I counted when finishing my choice and putting the story together.  Please do not expect a product listing of ticking superlatives here or a ranking of the most expensive / crazy watches. What I will show you instead are watches that really impressed me - 31 in total. Either through their good and cool design, technical realization, impeccable quality and/or reasonable price. 

Baselworld 2017: Tudor Heritage Black Bay Steel

 

Be authentic was the goal: The line of red text on the dial, highlighting the maximum guaranteed water resistance, is a rarity seen on certain 7923 references from 1955. Finally, the characteristic angular hands known as snowflake are typical of the watches delivered to the French Navy in the 1970s. It seems that the Tudor Heritage Black Bay Steel could become the long desired cult-piece by the collectors. Honestly speaking, when I saw the pictures first I was thrilled and expressed a loud WOW!

 

Baselworld 2017: Tudor Black Bay Chronograph

 

A lot of pictures showing the new Tudor Black Bay Chronograph. What do you think?

I am impressed!

This chronograph looks good, is packed with finest watchmaking technology developed and manufactured from the little sister of Rolex and does not cost the world. The 41 mm steel case is waterproof up to 200 meters. The push-pieces and the crown are screwed. The watch is sold either with a leather- or a NATO-strap and a steel bracelet.
