TUDOR PRESS KIT – BASELWORLD 2013
This year the TUDOR Heritage Advisor, which was fi rst presented in 2011, features a two-tone dial
in shades of velvety black with a modern, contemporary spirit enhancing the strong character of
this highly technological watch.
A true expression of TUDOR’s vintage spirit, the Advisor is a modern version of the emblematic
1957 alarm watch. Its movement is equipped with a mechanical alarm clock module, exclusively
developed by TUDOR and featuring a perfectly uniform crisp clear sound.
With added modern flair, this timekeeper conserves the original shape and proportions of the
middle case, lugs, and bezel, the familiar Dauphine hands and bevelled hour markers, as well as
the characteristically shaped red alarm hand.
The case diameter has been increased from 34 mm to 42 mm to suit today’s tastes.
The disc at 3 o’clock indicates the status of the alarm power reserve. The alarm function is activated
via a specially shaped pusher at 8 o’clock, and its ON/OFF indicator is displayed in a dial aperture
at 9 o’clock. The date is indicated by a hand on the counter at 6 o’clock. The winding crown at
2 o’clock is engraved with the name ADVISOR and is used to set the alarm. The crown at 4 o’clock is
delicately decorated with the TUDOR rose from the original dial and is used to access the winding,
time-setting and date-changing functions.
The watch is fi tted with either a vintage-size satin-fi nished three-piece link steel bracelet, or an
alligator leather strap with a folding clasp and a safety catch.
For an added touch of elegance and refinement, the new Advisor also comes with an additional
black fabric strap decorated with raised rows of interwoven satin. This retro chic strap represents
the innovative nature of TUDOR. By uniting weaving and watchmaking for the fi rst time, TUDOR
showcases a traditional craft and brings a new dimension to the watch, expressing a style that is
both unique and exceptionally comfortable to wear.
