To reinterpret can mean many things—a twist on the old, an updated technology, entirely new design. Here, TUDOR uses the term precisely as it was meant to be—a simple, but improved variation on a true classic. The Heritage Advisor takes the 1957 original and adds a dash of 2018 in the form of a stylish combination of cognac-coloured dial and matching strap— and keeps the automatic alarm function. A refreshed version of the one crafted over 60 years ago, the piece nods to the shape and proportions of its case, lugs, and glass, its dauphine hands and bevelled markers, amongst other minute details.
The much-lauded timepiece is crafted from titanium for impressive sound quality and has been enlarged to 42 mm for a more contemporary appeal. Interchangeable straps—a choice of a steel bracelet or the cognac-hued alligator version with a folding clasp are also accompanied by an extra black silk strap edged in satin, a brand signature. The alarm function, an extra mechanical module was innovated in-house by TUDOR, boasting exceptional sound clarity, with an alarm power-reserve indicator shown on the dial by a disk at 3 o’clock, with the ON/OFF display at 9 o’clock.
Far from resting on their respected laurels, TUDOR is driven in their mission to bring their remarkable watches to the present—and future. The models in the Heritage line offer modernity to the past pieces, while retaining respect for the singular craftsmanship of the House’s origins. The new Heritage Advisor is a key example of their success.
