Tudor Heritage Chrono Blue

In the rich saga of TUDOR historic chronographs, reference 7169 – better known to aficionados as the TUDOR “Montecarlo” chronograph – is an absolute icon. Since its launch in 1973,it has been produced in a number of different versions,the most fascinating featured distinctive touches of blue, grey and orange.

This rare, historic chronograph was produced for only a few years. Today, it is greatly prized by collectors
and is steadily increasing in value. To revitalize this legendary chronograph – imbued with the spirit of chic, sophisticated holiday destinations of the 1960s and 1970s, and reminiscent of carefree Mediterranean warmth and glamour – TUDOR has decided to reinterpret it and unveil the new TUDOR Heritage Chrono Blue.



At a time when blue is “the new black”, the chromatic harmonies of blue, grey and orange suggest an undisputed modernity. The royal blue of the original model (1973) combines with a slightly lighter grey than that of the original to give birth to a watch as much at home in water as on land,radiating the Mediterranean spirit and its warmth.

Inspired by history, but completely redesigned, the dial now has three-dimensional hour markers with two bevelled metallic edges defining an area filled with SuperLuminova for a stronger image and optimal legibility. It also features two counters located inside two blue trapezoidal shapes, one at 3 o’clock for the small seconds hand, and one at 9 o’clock for the famous 45-minute counter that marked the history of TUDOR chronographs in the 1970s.
