Tudor Heritage Chrono Watches for Sale
Since its release the Heritage Chronograph has been a wild success for Tudor, the Swiss watchmakers founded by the same man who gave the world Rolex. Since relaunching back in 2009, Tudor has gone from strength to strength and today occupies a significant rung on the global watchmaking ladder.
First things first, the most successful version of the Heritage Chronograph is by far the 70330B, which is the model that features a two register dial painted blue. Based on the old Monte Carlo model, hence the ‘Heritage’ in the title, the Tudor Heritage Chronograph has developed a cult following since release.
The Heritage range itself was launched back in 2010 whilst the popular 70330B model was not unveiled until the 2013 edition of the Baselworld watch convention. Almost immediately, the release sparked widespread intrigue, with an eye catching design and muscular tech specs that piqued the interest of even the most astute of collectors. As ever, it was the flash of cobalt blue included on the design that separated the model from the pack.
Although extremely similar to the Montecarlo, the Heritage Chronograph is of course a modern day version of the classic and as such has modern day features. For example, the ETA based self winding mechanical movement uses a Calibre 2892. However, this is not the only difference between the Heritage Chronograph and the Tudor Monte Carlo, the vintage watch upon which this new version is so clearly based.
For all of its technical prowess however, the best loved thing about the Heritage Chronograph is the model’s incredibly strong colourway. The use of cobalt blue accented with white and orange brings a kind of boyish flair to this watch that is quite simply breathtaking. Whilst the grey options are also stunning in their own masculine way, the sportiness of the blue version make the Heritage Chronograph a true modern classic.
With a round stainless steel case with a diameter of 42mm and a graduated bezel that comes in striking tones of blue, the watch The allows for a dual time zone feature that, as a Tudor, is highly practical and useful. Water resistant and with a sapphire crystal case, the Heritage Chronograph is a modern take on the classic Monte Carlo that ensures contemporary sturdiness is combined with classic design to devastating effect.
Indeed, the watch has proved a massive hit with vintage watch enthusiasts the world over. Solid, thick and large, this is a masculine watch that’s made for daily use. The bracelet is stainless steel and sturdy, whilst it is just as comfortable as one would expect from a Tudor. Another popular option is the fabric strap, which compliments the blue of the watch with its own cobalt shades.
Many lovers of this watch purchase the fabric strap separate, using it sparingly during the warmest months of the summer season when the environment calls for a more relaxed bracelet style. For those opting for the steel choice, this watch bracelet boasts a locking, folding deployment clasp in addition to micro-adjust technology. In addition to these high end features, a tapering design ensures pure comfort at all times for the wearer.
In short, the Tudor Heritage Chronograph watch is a wildly successful modern take on the classic Monte Carlo. A solid, sleek, and sturdy watch that possesses all the beauty of a vintage yet all the tech of a modern option, the Heritage Chronograph is a modern day phenomenon.
Truly, this is a watch of the highest quality that will continue to remain popular for years to come with watch enthusiasts of all types. From the more austere grey and black options to the wildly popular blue version of the Tudor Heritage Chronograph, this is a watch family to be reckoned with that almost single handedly sparked a renaissance for the Tudor company.
