Tudor Heritage Chrono Blue Watch

Tudor Heritage Chrono Blue Watch


Tudor continues to offer reinterpretations of the models that have made their mark on history. This year, the brand revives a famous chronograph nicknamed “Montecarlo” by collectors and aficionados. Launched in 1973, it has now been renamed Heritage Chrono Blue. The watch is inspired by the original spirit of the model and innovates on both aesthetic and technical levels so as to provide a resolutely contemporary interpretation. The royal blue of the historical version combines with a slightly lighter grey than the original to give life to a watch that is both earthly and aquatic, expressing a typically Mediterranean warmth and atmosphere. The dial features three-dimensional bevelled hour-markers filled with a luminescent substance. Heritage Chrono Blue is also distinguished by its two counters appearing inside blue trapeze-shaped surrounds: one for the small seconds at 3 o’clock and the other for the 45-minute counter at 9 o’clock
