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 great deal on these items – which are admittedly great watches. In any case, there are a larger number of watches in the assortment than these lively, vintage-roused 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 reveals an updated and somewhat more manly form of this watch, presently outfitted with a shiny new form of the manufacture movement. Meet the Tudor Glamor Double Date ref. 57100/57103.
Up up to this point, the Tudor Glamour had been totally in the shadows of the BB, Pelagos and different games models of Tudor. It was one of those watches that didn’t truly catch our consideration, principally in light of the fact 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 predominantly with the presentation of the manufacture type in this assortment – and moreover, another development of the brand’s own movement.
The Tudor Glamor Double Date will be, as is frequently the situation for the Rolex/Tudor Group, accessible in a variety of renditions. Steel on cowhide, steel on a wristband, steel-and-gold on calfskin or on a two-tone arm band, with or without jewels on the dial… decisions for all preferences. The primary update concerns the case, which like its archetype, the ref. 57000, actually gauges 42mm in measurement (an unflinchingly present day and manly case) and has been somewhat updated. As per Tudor “The double bezel has a slight drop making a trademark alleviation and delicately expands the bends of the cleaned steel case.” Elegant yet current, dressy however 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 alternative, Tudor adds a decent silver dial with blue hands or silver dial with gold hands – unquestionably the most adaptable form, despite the fact that the blue hands give the watch more easygoing quality. Generally, 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 depressions), a fringe ring with sunray finish and a snailed little seconds counter. The lists and hands are fairly straightforward yet finished with a few features. The presentation comprises hours and minutes in the middle, little seconds at 6 o’clock and a double-date at 12 o’clock – a similar showcase as the past ref. 57000, yet there is news “under the hood”.
The primary oddity is the movement that controls this presentation. In light of the brand’s manufacture type, the new Caliber MT5641, again COSC-ensured, depends on all the advancements 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 enormous 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 cowhide) and EUR 3,210 (steel on steel) to EUR 3,450 (steel-and-gold calfskin) and EUR 4,140 (steel-and-gold arm band).
