Some forty years down the road, the 2010 TUDOR Heritage Chrono is a fitting ode to the historic links and shared values of the TUDOR and Porsche brands and to the powerful TUDOR-Porsche Motorsport partnership signed in 2009, when TUDOR became “Timing Partner” with involvement in the Porsche international one-make cups.
Introducing modern design codes that confirm everything is better the second time around, all the lines of this storied timepiece have been mindfully reformulated to echo, with a contemporary spin, the exquisite contours of the coveted chronograph and of the racing cars at the historic, technical and aesthetic heart of its creation.
Created at the crossroads of vintage and velocity, the new TUDOR Heritage Chrono, a timely addition to the TUDOR Sport collection, is ingeniously inspired by the celebrated TUDOR Oysterdate Chronograph of the early 1970s.
The 2010 TUDOR Heritage Chrono mirrors the original shape and proportions of the middle case, bezel, lugs and bracelet of th 1970s model. But a closer look reveals a series of new and beautifully executed design details.
Notably, the bevelled and polished edges of the lugs, the slick, stylized shoulders to protect the crown, and the knurled edge of the rotatable bezel and of the pushers that flank a knurled winding crown to improve grip.
