At the beginning of the 19th century, Hans Wilsdorf – the founder of Rolex established a high-quality lower priced brand, named Tudor. The name decision was influenced by one of England’s dynasties, the Tudors, honouring in this way the country in which he opened his first watch company. This year at Baselworld, Tudor released a chronograph with diver ambitions – Tudor Heritage Black Bay Chrono. A nice surprise was the announcement of the calibre MT5813, a collaboration with Breitling. We had the pleasure to do a hands-on at Basel. The latest Tudor watch is a welcomed presence. The easy-going character with a pleasant look and a powerful combination between the chronometer certified movement and diver capabilities makes and interesting proposition. The Tudor Black Bay Chronograph was first shown at Baselworld 2017, and right away it was the center of a great deal of attention and not a small amount of controversy. rado watches replica First of all, it was the very first Tudor chronograph to use the Breitling B01 chronograph movement, which was a startling move to say the least, and one which few if any outside Breitling and Tudor saw coming. The movement is an excellent one technically; many in the industry praised its overall engineering and watchmaker-friendly design when it first debuted, and all of the excellent technical properties of this modern, column wheel, vertical clutch controlled chronograph are obviously present in the Tudor version, but it was still a bit of a surprise. Secondly, there was the design, which combines elements of both vintage diver and chronograph watches – there are plenty of watches that combine features of both types of watches, but there seemed to be some feeling among vintage Tudor purists that these design domains should remain distinct from each other. best replica tourbillon watches And finally, of course, there was the question of the hands, and whether or not the snowflake hour hand was a less-than-terrific idea for a chronograph. Let’s take a closer look at the watch, and how it fared during A Week On The Wrist. jacob and co replica First a quick refresher on the movement. The version of the B01 as modified and used by Tudor is called MT5813 and there are some significant differences between the base movement and the Tudor version. Most notably, the caliber MT5813 has a free-sprung adjustable mass balance and uses a silicon balance spring. A free-sprung balance should be less susceptible to variation in rate over time and silicon provides much better resistance to the adverse effects of external magnetic fields on a watch as well. There is shock protection on both the balance staff and the escape wheel. It’s a relatively fast-beat modern movement, at 28,800 vph and in general gives the impression of a mechanism that should tolerate anything you can reasonably expect to throw at it. One other modification: the caliber MT5813 has a 45 minute, rather than a 30 minute, chronograph register. cheapest richard mille The first impression I got when I picked up the Replica Tudor Black Bay Chronograph at Baselworld was of impressive solidity, if a fair amount of heft too. The case and bracelet both have a very attractive sculpted quality with the bevels on the lugs doing much to add some elegance to what otherwise might be a somewhat stolid design. That touch as well as the details added by such features as the knurling on the screw down chronograph pushers, as well as the engraved tachymeter scale on the (non-rotating) bezel help keep the watch feeling pleasantly overbuilt without seeming excessively static. jaeger lecoultre reverso tribute replica The dial and hands are as you would expect from Tudor/Rolex: very cleanly done technically, extremely legible, and in general quite well executed. If you like the snowflake hands on the non-chronograph Black Bay models, you’ll like them here (leaving aside for the moment the question of the degree to which the snowflake hour hand may obscure the 45-minute chronograph register). The dial has a subtle grained finish that extends into the sunken sub-dials and again, the texture helps keep the whole composition feeling warm and approachable. The bracelet and clasp are amazing. There is absolutely no play whatsoever in between the links, and operating the fliplock clasp gives the same pleasurable sense of interaction with a precision piece of machinery that, say, operating the film advance lever on a vintage Leica provides. Unlike many clasps this one feels specifically engineered not just for functional excellence but for tactile pleasure as well (of course to some extent the two go hand in hand). Thanks to the solidity of the bracelet the watch though slightly on the heavier side sits very comfortably on the wrist, with a sense of mass to be sure, but mass kept well controlled. I’m reluctant to say “built like a tank” both because it is a cliché and because there have been some pretty terrible tanks (Kugelpanzer ball tank, I’m looking at you) but in this case the cliché is apt. Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Replica During the week I wore the Tudor Black Bay Chronograph 79360N, I never ceased to find it an extremely satisfying watch to wear in many respects. It kept excellent time (gaining about one and a half seconds per day, which is Superlative Chronometer level stuff, thanks to the well-designed and well-set-up regulating system) and was a comfortable fit with everything from jeans and a t-shirt to a button up shirt and jacket, though the thickness of the Black Bay Chronograph was a bit of a challenge even for the fairly loose-fitting cuffs of a Brooks Brothers shirt (case dimensions are 41mm x 14.9mm). tudor black bay replica Stylistically, the Black Bay Chronograph is a mixture of elements from both vintage Tudor dive watch and chronograph production, including the riveted link bracelet seen on some Tudor Submariners (and of course the snowflake hour hand) as well as the general design of the screw down pushers, crown, and case guards from the Tudor Oysterdate chronographs. The combination works well from a design standpoint, and there’s nothing aesthetically dissonant about seeing these design cues together, with all the pieces contributing to the overall sport-vintage vibe. a. lange sohne triple split replica Operating the chronograph is perhaps more of an exercise in well-executed technical functionality than sybaritic tactile pleasure. On the sample I had, a little additional effort seemed necessary to push the start button through the detent but let-off was crisp and positive (and, let’s remember, being able to deploy that well-worn horological cliché “buttery smooth” seriously generally requires spending more money).

Rolex Submariner date or not date? This is a question that has split opinions ever since a date and a no-date version became standard side-by-side Submariner duo in Rolex’s collection of watches.We regularly see people who are looking to buy a Submariner, and ask for advice online on which they should choose: with or without a date? But it seems pointless to ask for advice because the answer is awfully close to 50/50 every time.Now, there is no right or wrong when it comes to choosing a Submariner – only personalizes preference. However, there are pros and cons of both versions, so before you choose one or the other, read the pros and cons of the Rolex Submariner date vs no date.To non-watch people, the debate between date and no date may seem insignificant and silly, but small changes make for huge differences for (probably) the most iconic and recognized watch model in the world.rolex submariner no date replica First off, let’s just start by saying that Rolex does not officially have a watch that is called ”no date”. This is just what people have started calling Submariner without a date in order to distinguish them from the date versions.Before we dive into the pros and cons of the respective watch, let’s just briefly go over some history about the Submariner. Development of the Submariner started in 1953 when a man by the name of René-Paul Jeanneret who came up with an idea for a diver’s watch. This man served on the Board of Directors Rolex. His idea was to make a sporty yet elegant everyday watch that would be waterproof. And apparently, Rolex liked the idea since development began in 1953. The following year, in 1954, the first Rolex Submariner replica was announced to the world: the reference 6204, debuting at the Basel watch fair. It has a 38mm Oyster case and offers a water resistance of 100m/300ft. A notable feature at the time was the rotating bezel that allows divers to keep track of elapsed time. The first submariner did not have a date function.Rado True Square Tej Chauhan The Submariner became a huge success as it was a practical tool watch that made for a perfect all-rounder for any occasion. Since then, a lot have happened in the Submariner collection. Technology has been improved, materials updated, reliability increased, and styling refined. In 1966, the Submariner reference 1680 made its debut. The 1680 is the first Submariner to feature a date window, complete with cyclops. The introduction of the first Submariner with date symbolized something interesting, which is that the Submariner was no longer just a tool for professional divers. It was also the watch of the likes of James Bond and everyday people. How is that so? Because of the simple fact that a professional diver has no reason to keep track of what date it is when diving deep down in the ocean. There are not just one rolex submariner no date and date respectively. In fact, over the years, Rolex has released several different dates and no-dates.The watches that most people tend to think about are the Submariner date reference 116610LN and the Submariner no date reference 114060, both with ceramic bezel and maxi case. However, the previous generation with aluminum inserts also stand side-by-side as a date and no date version, reference 16610 and 14060. Both generations of references are identical to each other, apart from the fact that they have/do not have a date function. Therefore, if you want to have an older and more traditional Submariner, you will perhaps opt for either the 14060 or the 16610.Or, if you want a modern, robust, and sporty Submariner, you will opt for either the submariner 114060LN or 116610LN.As mentioned there is no right and wrong answer to this question. It all depends on what you require in a watch. There is no denying that the date is a practical function on the Submariner. Being able to have a glance at your watch and instantly know the date, rather than having to awkwardly pull up your phone can be really helpful in many situations.At the same time, there are plenty of watches that do not have a date function, so if you do not have it on your other watches, you can reason in two ways: rolex submariner green replica Either you can say ”I don’t have a date on my other watches, so I am doing just fine without it”Or you can say Because I don’t have the date function on my other watches, I want to get a watch that has this function”. There are two main things that no date advocates highlight about the Submariner no date. patek philippe tourbillon replica The symmetry of the Submariner date is damaged due to the date window and the cyclops on the dial. Whilst the feature is practical, it does harm the symmetrical beauty. The Submariner no date ha a perfectly symmetrical dial that just is visually appealing to look at. Furthermore, the no date is cleaner, which gives the perception of a more widened the dial. patek philippe 5711 replica The other thing is originality. The first Submariner and a number of references after that did not have a date function. With that said, the date function and cyclops is a relatively modern idea. As such, the no-date version stays much truer to the original Submariner. Purists will naturally find the Submariner no date the better alternative, but in terms of practicality, it’s safe to say that it is not. By omitting the date function, the watch retains its lines and minimalist aesthetics. The Submariner is made for a specific purpose, so who needs to know the date when diving, anyway? It’s only that the closest most Submariners will ever come water is when the owner washes their hands. The thing is that most people today who buy a Submariner will wear them as desk divers. They buy the Submariner because it is iconic, it has an interesting history, and because they like it aesthetically. But if you are only desk diving, the date function can certainly come in handy. There are also people who prefer the look of the Submariner with cyclops and date window. The most noticeable about the Submariner date is perhaps not the date window alone, but rather the cyclops that is glued on top of the crystal. The cyclops was introduced in 1966 to magnify the date aperture function two and a half times – a very clever feature to improve legibility. The cyclops has today become an important element in many of Rolex’s models, not to mention the Datejust model. So unlike back in the days when the date cyclops was something very odd-looking, today many people associate it with Rolex. Have in mind that the there is a price difference between the date and no date SubmarinersNaturally, because the date version has a date window, date wheel, as well as an upgraded movement to support the date function, it has a higher price.So the question is, do you think it is worth to pay more to have the date or can you manage just fine without? The 114060 vs The 116610LN The ceramic date and no date Submariners stand side by side as rivals and make the choice for many people a tough one. If it would only be one, the choice would be much easier. But clearly, Rolex sees demand for both. As mentioned, 116610LN and 114060 are more or less identical. They share the same 40mm Oyster case made from Oystersteel. A screw-down caseback and crown ensure water-resistance to 300m (1,000ft). Both have black dials with 18ct gold hour markers to prevent tarnishing. And both feature a unidirectional rotatable bezel with scratch-resistant Cerachrom insert in ceramic. The difference, however, is that the date version has a cyclops glued to the crystal at 3 o’clock. Furthermore, the 3 o’clock marker on the dial has been removed in order to give room for the date window. Because of this difference, the two watches also have slightly different movements. The reference 114060 is powered by calibre 3130 which is a self-winding mechanical movement manufactured in-house by Rolex. It’s fitted with a Parachrom hairspring and is certified as a superlative chronometer. The Submariner Date, on the other hand, is equipped with calibre 3135. It has the same specifications as the calibre 3130, but has an added instantaneous date with rapid setting. Regardless of your choice of a date or a no date, you can never go wrong with a classic such as the Submariner. It is iconic, legendary, and truly timeless in design. With that said, symmetry is something our eyes find visually pleasing. So are you prepared to compare the symmetry of the Submariner in favor of a practical date window? Or would you rather premier function over symmetry? Share with us your thoughts below! Rolex Submariner date or no date?
