The new Tudor Glamour Double Date collection arrives
Created in 1926 by the founder of Rolex, Hans Wilsdorf, the Tudor Watch Company was born with a mission to explore new territories, offering a watch at a more accessible price, yet retaining the standards of unparalleled quality and dependability. The Tudor Glamour Double Date collection, as worn by David Beckham, reflects the original vision of the brand’s founder, offering a choice of Swiss-made mechanical models for every occasion. The new collection features a high-performance COSC Manufacture Calibre visible through an open back, a rare occurrence for Tudor.
The Glamour line embodies Tudor’s sense of elegance and its vision of the tradition of fine watchmaking. Throughout its history, Tudor has offered a diverse collection within the dress watch segment. With this in mind, the new Glamour Double Date model displays subtle lines, a wealth of detail, and superior manufacturing quality. Measuring 42 mm in diameter, available in steel or steel and yellow gold with a choice of bracelets in genuine alligator, steel or steel and gold, the Glamour Double Date model is distinguished by its versatile elegance and the performance of its Manufacture Calibre.
SPIRIT OF DESIGN
The design of the Glamour Double Date model is the result of Tudor’s attention to detail, for which it is renowned. The double bezel has a slight drop creating a characteristic relief and gently extends the curves of the polished steel case. The edges present an encompassing line. The angles they draw refine them and work together with the bezel to give the Glamour Double Date model a noble and refined look. The design is striking while remaining true to its function and to what Tudor watches have become known for: robustness, waterproofness and precision.
The Glamour Double Date model dial is available in silver, black, champagne colour,or opaline white. It has two concentric rings. The central medallion is adorned with thin straight vertical gadrooning. Their texture subtly catches the light without dominating the watch face. The outer ring has a sunray finish and is punctuated by elongated diamond-shaped hour markers. Their geometry echoes that of the calendar. Located at 12 o’clock, it is made of a large double window, which is fully horizontal and adds to the elegance of this Glamour model. At 6 o’clock, a small second beats time on a snailed background.
