Tudor is a brand that is almost synonymous with outdoor activity, from cars to sailing and more. Now, the brand takes the adventurous spirit a step further with the new North Flag collection with in-house-made movement. The line is named for the arctic and Antarctic – extremes of the planet, temperatures and conditions. It was so named for the science exhibitions of the early 1950’s, when the British North Greenland Expedition scientists wore Tudor Oyster Prince watches throughout their experiences in the hostile conditions. As such, the new watch is completely inspired by history, but offers a visionary look to today’s rugged adventures.
The hybrid steel and ceramic watch was developed in house by the brand – with special attention paid to the case material and the all-new movement. In fact, this watch represents Tudor’s first Manufacture-made caliber – the TUDOR MT5621 with a power reserve of 70 hours. In addition to providing the hour, minute and central seconds, it offers an instant date display and power reserve indicator. The variable inertia oscillator features a silicon balance spring and the watch is geared to resist both shock and vibrations thanks to its COSC-certified chronometer status. The self-winding watch with bi-directional winding beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour.
The steel and ceramic case is offered with an integrated bracelet construction. As is typical of Tudor, the North Flag is sold with two bracelet options, including a solid steel satin- and polished-link bracelet and a matt black leather strap with yellow top stitching and lining.
