The excitement is mounting towards the annual International Watch and Jewellery Fair in Basel, Switzerland. Running from Thursday 23rd March to Thursday 30th, it is THE launchpad of all the new watches and jewellery from our main suppliers such as Rolex, Tudor and Mikimoto. Keep an eye on our Rolex E-corner and our Facebook and Instagram pages for all that is revealed!
One of my favourite aspects of Tudor’s Heritage watches are the small references to the details that are so important to collectors, especially those of their vintage watches. The Black Bay was equipped with a domed sapphire crystal, so beloved of vintage Submariner fans. The Heritage Ranger had ‘drilled lugs’, a small but important detail of vintage Oyster watches (as were the straight endlinks on the reissued Ranger’s steel bracelet). A key focus of vintage watch collecting is also the choice of strap. For many years now there has been an almost cult-like following for the G10 NATO straps – originally used by the armed forces on military issued watches (most famously in this context, the Tudor Submariners of the French Navy, the Marine Nationale). Originally issued only in grey, they are now available in a kaleidoscope of colours to suit every occasion and outfit. Tudor recognised this modern trend […]

Montres Tudor SA was founded by one of the most important figures in horology’s history, Mr Hans Wilsdorf; the gentleman who was also responsible for founding another goliath of the watch-making world – Rolex. Tudor is considered one of the most innovative of all modern wristwatch brands with new uses of materials (the all ceramic Black Shield) and interesting movement complications (the Heritage Advisor). As the backdrop to all of this is a rich history of which Tudor is rightly proud, celebrated through the hugely successful Heritage watches. The Tudor Heritage releases have been an annual highlight at Baselworld since the Heritage Chronograph (based on the legendary Tudor ‘Homeplate’ Chronograph from 1971) was launched in 2010. The name The Tudor was registered for Hans Wildorf in 1926 and the first Tudors started to appear in 1932, as rectangular and ‘cushion’ shaped watches. These early watches featured the distinctive ‘Long T’ […]
