We are less than than a month away till the official release of Tudor Watches in the US and the Tudor Black Bay has already made its way on the cover of GQ for September 2013.

The Tudor Black Bay is my favorite watch of the year. I had a chance to see this watch  live  a few months ago and I was blown away! Tudor is going to be the biggest thing the watch industry has seen since Panerai made it’s debut in the late nineties.

On the September 2013 cover of GQ, NFL great RG III aka Robert Griffin III is rocking the Tudor Black Bay. The Tudor Black Bay is not your conventional boring looking divers watch. I have to say, it has personality and charisma with the red rotating aluminum bezel and  has a touch of vintage with the brown leather distressed strap, while still being masculine with a 41 mm stainless steel case. This watch not only looks and feels good, but it is really well made and very well priced at $3,100 on a distressed brown leather strap and $3,425 on a stainless steel bracelet.

By having a Pro NFL athlete like RG III who is 6ft2 and weighs around 220 pounds wearing this watch, it shows true scale of how it looks. The watch looks great and is proportionate in size, personally I would have liked to have seen this in a 47 mm size, but one miracle at a time.

The  anticipation is killing me , I cant wait. Tudor officially makes its return back to the US in September 2013. Distribution will be tight and everything is in place for Tudor to not only Debut the brand but own the intro-luxury watch market.

There are a lot of watch brands out there in the three to five thousand dollar price range, but I have a feeling Tudor will swallow the competition and spit them out and dominate.  At the end of the day, Tudor is a subsidiary brand of Rolex. With re-branding themselves and making a return to the US and having great products and price points, it will be very hard for the other brands to compete.

Those of you who are looking to get into the Rolex family and dont feel like spending ten grand or don’t have the means to do so at this time, you can rest assure that you have variety, quality and incredible styling with Tudor. I had a chance to play with most of the current collection, and let me tell you, I am very impressed.

One watch in particular that I need to own in the current Tudor collection is the Pelagos Divers watch in Titanium. This watch is very reminiscent of the Rolex Submariner. I am very impressed with the  construction of the entire watch , from the 42 mm Titanium case, the black ceramic bezel, the titanium bracelet with folding clasp, safety catch and bracelet extension system, to the incredible simplicity of the iconic and timeless 3 handed black dial. Unlike Rolex, Tudor does not produce their movements in house, but they use the very robust and reliable ETA 2824 self-winding movement . This watch is water resistant to 500 m and has a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. This watch is packaged with an additional rubber strap. The best part of this watch is the price, at $4,125, it’s going to be difficult to find another watch that comes close.

Like this watch, Tudor has done a stellar job with creating a very solid collection which I urge you all to take a close look here.

New Tudor Heritage Chrono Blue Basel 2013

40 years ago, Tudor released the Heritage Chrono Blue in 1973. This Basel 2013, Tudor brought this watch back into the collection  to relaunch the brand into the US with a bang.

The entire watch world is waiting for the arrival of Tudor into the US market.  What better way to do so than by paying homage to a true classic. Stylistically, when you look at this watch, it has the feel and look of a Paul Newman vintage Rolex Daytona from the sixties.

They definitely reproduced this watch as close to the original specs as possible, at the same time they added some nice touches to the crowns and pushers. Even though the dial is pretty much the same, it appears cleaner, boulder and less busy than the original. The date wheel is smaller and more subtle making the dial look less crowded.

The case is a good size at 42 mm and is made out of stainless steel. This watch is fitted on a stainless steel oyster looking bracelet which is timeless and also comes with an additional nylon strap and buckle for a more casual sporty feel.  The movement is an ETA 2892 with a module for the chronograph which is made specifically for Tudor.

I know Tudor is going after the three to five thousand dollar market and with watches like this they will be sure to own it.

Technical specs for the Tudor Heritage Chrono Blue ref#70330B

The case, in stainless steel, measures 42mm. It has a sapphire crystal and it is water resistant to 150 meters. It features a bidirectional rotatable 12-hour graduated (48 positions) steel bezel for second time-zone display, blue disc.

Movement is the Swiss automatic Tudor caliber 2892 (base ETA) with chronograph module. It has a power reserve of 42 hours. 45-minute totalizer at 9 o’clock and small seconds hand at 3 o’clock with date at 6 o’clock.
