That’s not one small step for Tudor, it’s a giant leap. The Swiss brand known affectionately as the “little brother” of Rolex is gaining a couple of centimetres and showing signs of maturity, after introducing its first in-house movement in the Tudor North Flag watch.
The new model has everything that’s expected of a modern Tudor watch. It’s a fun, sporty, and yet versatile watch, with some sleeks lines and a subtle date window at 3 o’clock. The matte dial and colourful accents on the power reserve and seconds hand.
But then there’s more. A lot more in fact. The star of the watch is on the other side of the dial, under the sapphire caseback. Tudor’s first in-house movement, the MT5621, is proudly showcased and rightly so. It’s a raw statement, deprived of fancy decorations, but the message comes accross loud and clear. Tudor is no longer “little brother.” It’s next in line.
The Tudor North Flag is priced at $3,550 on the leather strap and $3,675 on the steel bracelet.
