North Flag

2015 is a landmark year for Genevan watchmaker Tudor. The company, which was founded in 1936 by Hans Wildorf (the founder of Rolex born in 1905), unveiled its first own brand calibre at Baselworld. This self-winding MT5621 movement has been entirely made by the brand and is COSC-certified. It brings to life the hours, minutes and seconds, date display (3 o’ clock) and power reserve indicator (approximately 70 hours). The new calibre has made its presence felt in the Tudor collections and nestles in a new timepiece’s edgy 40mm steel case. Its name brings to mind adventures on unchartered territory and Polar expeditions: North Flag. The matt black dial has white luminescent indices and hands. The minute track running around the chapter ring is also white. The bright yellow on the central seconds hand, 5 minute intervals and power reserve indicator provides a pop of colour. Price: 3’400 CHF (leather strap) – 3’500 CHF (steel bracelet)
