Tudor shine bright at Basel

Tudor continue their epic Basel form with the introduction of a new Heritage Black Bay with blue bezel and crown tube and the Tudor Heritage Ranger, a re-release of their classic 1967 explorer’s watch.


Vintage Rolex fans will notice the Heritage Ranger’s direct resemblance to the Ref. 6610 Rolex Explorer and most notably to the highly collectible 3,6,9 dial from the period. Upon first glance the 2014 Ranger is a carbon copy of the 1967 model, it does however distinguish itself with a larger case and new red seconds hand. Like its predecessor it features drilled lug holes to assist a quick strap change and can be purchased with four strap variations. Under the iconic dial is the reliable and robust ETA 2824 with a 38 hour power reserve. Except the price to sit just above $3000 and stock to go, quickly.


Continuing the success of the always sold out Black Bay Tudor this year release another version of the same watch with a blue bezel and matching blue crown tube. Unlike the original Black Bay that was designed to appear almost worn (like a new pair of distressed jeans) this model features a solid matte black dial and a rich midnight blue bezel emulating the famous Submariner dive watches that shared the same colour and snowflake hands. Pricing will be the same as the existing model, around $4500 and also likely to be as hard to get your hands on! 0b63tudor-heritage-black-bay-midnight-blue-00
