Tudor Advisor Watches
A real hidden gem in the manufacturer’s collection, the popularity of Tudor Advisor watches is sometimes dwarfed by its contemporaries like the Black Bay. Nevertheless, nearly everybody who owns a Tudor Advisor watch falls in love. This is a timepiece that suits you. No matter what your day entails, a Tudor Advisor watch is guaranteed to be the perfect companion.
The History of Tudor Advisor Watches
Originally launched in 1957, the original Tudor Advisor, the reference 7926 was a mechanical alarm wristwatch housed in a 34mm Oyster case. The Advisor 7926 had multiple dial variations, with applied hour markers and dauphine hands.
The goal of the Tudor Advisor watches was to create something unmistakably Tudor, effortlessly stylish and high quality. It almost goes without saying that the creators of the original collection of Tudor Advisor watches succeeded.
The original Advisor 7296 was in production for ten years until it was replaced by the 10050. This new Advisor had ditched the original’s Oyster shape for a new round case with square lugs. The 10050 itself stayed in production for less time than the original, only around eight years.
In 2011 Tudor unveiled the latest additions to the much anticipated Heritage collection, which celebrated and reimagined classic Tudor timepieces of the past. This time the announcement was for the Tudor Heritage Advisor Reference 79620.
This new Advisor strikes the perfect balance of creating its own identity, while honouring and drawing inspiration from the original 7926 model. Rather than re-release the classic watch from the past with a paint job and new materials, Tudor opted to evoke the older timepiece, while also managing to be a modern watch for a new audience.
As well as a few retained features from the original watch, such as dauphine arms, this release is an update on the original. It has a larger 42mm case made from a polished titanium with a steel bezel ring. Like its predecessors, the Heritage has two winding crowns. This time however, the crowns come with the word ‘Advisor’ adorning one, and the familiar rose emblem on the other.
Another important change to the Heritage Advisor was the addition of an oval pusher to the left hand side of the case. This is designed to switch the alarm on and off, making activation simple — to bring this classic alarm watch to a more convenient modern era. It stands out both in functionality and design, as the only alarm watch currently in the rotation for both Tudor and Rolex it is truly one of a kind.
No Cause for Alarm
When it comes to complications, the alarm stands out. It is fairly uncommon as far as complications go, but few capture the innovation and artistry of high level watchmaking like a mechanical alarm.
It perfectly captures these pivotal features of the artistry of master craftsmen, while being beneficial to your everyday life. The alarm works as a combination of a noticeable but subtle vibration on your wrist, as well as a discreet alert that sounds for 10 seconds with a distinct note from within the case.
Many Tudor Advisors are crafted out of a form of titanium – this material was specifically chosen for its acoustic properties, allowing the watch to better amplify the noise and give it a more pleasant, almost musical property.
Perfect for Everyday Use
The Tudor Advisor range is perfect for anybody with an interest in the history of watches, with a love of alarm watches, or somebody fascinated by the inner-workings of a watch.
However, Tudor Advisor watches are not just reserved for collectors, they are designed to be worn. Not worn occasionally or on special occasions, they were meant to be worn every single day.
The watch truly comes into its own when it’s integrated into your schedule, reminding you of your appointments and keeping you one step ahead throughout your day.
The perfect watch that can go from meetings to social events is difficult, but the Tudor Advisor manages this transition seamlessly. Smart to look at, and even smarter on the inside, the Tudor Advisor is perfect for the hard-working professional who also likes to relax once the working day finishes.
