Obviously, the word “bandwagon” appeared in the English dictionary in the mid-19th century, and since then it has been used as a noun and verb, derogating their use in a playful manner.The term is easy to predate the Toronto Raptors, Arcade Fire, and even Tudor fake watches. Due to the popularity of Black Bay, they should also experience their stardom in the short Baselworld release cycle. wind.
To be fair, there is still a lot of room on the Tudor wagon, but please do n’t forget that, like everyone ’s current favorite team, this brand is much more than single-player games or singles single-player. That is to say, for most of the past decade, the Tudor dynasty has quietly exhibited great depth and personality-unleashing compelling and innovative elements such as Heritage Heritage, which ultimately end up The attractiveness of the mass market has laid the foundation and its countless iterations, but the current legacy has once again become a whole.
It may not be too much to call Heritage Advisor a “best kept secret” in Tudor’s modern collection. For many collectors, there may be many options that may appeal first-this illustrates the depth of Tudor’s current product line. Advisor was released in 2011, long before the watch industry reached a critical point on Instagram, before the old-style re-release craze, and certainly before Tudor watches were launched in the United States, Advisor aims to pay tribute to the brand’s iconic alarm clock. Since 1957, it is also called a consultant. However, Tudor not only simply reissued the watch with alarm function in the era of the middle of the century Wilsdorf, but also sought to expand the function-adding more technical functions to improve the watch function and overall wearing experience of modern people.
The original double crown consultant was a relatively uncharacteristic four-hand event: it was 34 mm long, with a red alarm pointer, adjusted by the crown at 2 o’clock. Otherwise, there is hardly any fact to give up, that is, there is such a unique thing hidden under the silver dial. Modern iterations make the script a bit confusing-only advisors in name and layout. Here, we have a rugged 42 mm titanium case with 100 meters of water resistance, but because of its light weight and moderate 49 mm lug spacing, it is very comfortable to wear. This watch is powered by an automatic ETA 2892 base, which has undergone extensive modification of the internal mechanical alarm module. It is worth noting that as early as 2011 and before the manufacture of the MT series movement, this was Tudor’s only internally designed movement.
As with most traditional automatic watches, you can wind, set the date (indicated at 6 o’clock), and use the push / pull crown at 4 o’clock to set the time on the Advisor. The crown at 2 o’clock (can also be pushed / pulled) is marked as “Adviser” and is used for all alarm-related functions. Pop it up to the first position to turn on the alarm, and at 3 o’clock it is filled with a red standby indicator, in the same way as a manual winding watch. Pull it to the second position again to adjust the red alarm time setting hand. Please note that if you wish to wake up at 6:03 in the morning, the index chapter ringtone is only marked between 10-30-50 minutes between each hour, which leaves some inaccuracies in the alarm setting process. For the rest of our patients with non-obsessive-compulsive disorder, simply set it to the nearest 6 o’clock and bounce the crown back into place.
So what does a mechanical alarm sound like? Well, unlike the hollow digital chi made by Quartz-powered G-Shock or Breitling Aerospace, traditionally, the choice is wide, ranging from fanatical insect-like buzz (such as robot cricket drinking too much coffee) A small fire alarm in the fire room may send out those in sight. Fight for the engine. Although it also depends on whether you wear a watch when the alarm sounds, Advisor plays a much bigger role in the “cricket” category, as you heard in our recent Instagram post. Listening carefully, you may find a ringtone that glows continuously throughout the entire 10-second discharge process-similar to the Seiko Bell-Matic many years ago.
At the beginning there were not too many alarm clock watches to choose from, but there were even fewer alarm clock watches that provided any indication that the alarm clock was turned on or off, making most wearers feel vaguely fearful all day long. Will the funeral period end? In the cinema? In meditation after the yoga class? In addition to Advisor’s power reserve, which can directly confirm whether the alarm has enough juice, the 9 o’clock indicator can also make it difficult to confirm that the alarm is ready.
Backup indicators and buttons are important because the alarm time is 12 hours, which means that one can set the alarm to get up at 6 am. However, if you perform this operation at 4 pm the day before, the alarm will sound within two hours at 6 pm, which may cause some fear at dinner. Thankfully, once the alarm starts to sound, the eight o’clock button can also be used to silence the alarm-absolutely convenient if an accident comes. These two indicators add some elements to the dial, but I would like to say that the added visual complexity is definitely worth it because every time you want to set a reminder to wake up early to watch the watch, you do n’t have to clock. Tour de France stage.
You can use Advisor to set reminders throughout the day or week, but from a practical point of view, I think the best way to use it is to set up a single repetitive daily reminder (wake up, wake up, or reminder) that always occurs at the same time. Meditate, walk dogs, etc.), so that you only need to turn off the alarm after each discharge, and then use the push rod to re-arm it. My watch practice in July is: 1) Set and sound the alarm the next morning. 2) Wake up, sound the alarm again, and keep the button in the “off” position. 3) Remove the watch before bed, set the alarm switch to “on”, and then place it on the bedside table. 4) Remind your wife not to be afraid when she wakes up in the morning. 5) Make coffee and observe the TDF stage of the day.
The consultant offers three dialing options, including silver and black, although I think the “Cognac” option shown here is definitely a knockout. Burgundy shows a rich color at some angles and a light gray at other angles. Its multi-layer structure and the distinctive matte and matte texture between the inside and outside areas of the dial create an interesting on the wrist Super dynamic. Unless you wear a gorgeous champagne S & G model, Tudor wo n’t earn enough credibility to make an excellent dial, but why when most watch fans only understand them for the simpler, peculiar matte products found on Black , Why choose them? Bay or Pelagos diving watch?
So, for now, forget everything you see in the Instagram-driven trend – Tudor is not only a miracle of success, but also interesting and innovative evergreen products such as Advisor, which are definitely worth a closer look.
1995-Prince Oyster-style “sapphire” watch comes out
Just six and a half months later, Tudor also launched the distinctive fifth generation three chronograph 79200 series, which is known as Prince Oysterdate ‘Sapphire‘ because it uses sapphire crystal instead of organic glass.
The timepiece debuted in 1995 and used a redesigned rounder case to provide a more refined look and feel. It also replaces the previous Plexiglas frame and uses a black anodized aluminum insert to form a harder surface and help prevent corrosion. Valjoux 7750 was sounded inside the case, and the watch has been updated many times since 1976.
In addition, two-color models (steel and gold) and leather straps are also provided, which can be said to deviate from the more sporty roots of the Tudor chronograph.
