Tudor Heritage Advisor Cognac Dial

The Heritage Advisor from TUDOR now comes in a new combination of cognac-coloured dial and strap.

The Heritage Advisor is a reinterpretation of the famous TUDOR alarm watch from 1957. An up-todate version of this classic, it retains its original shape and proportions of its case, lugs, and glass, its dauphine hands and bevelled markers, as well as the design and colour of its red alarm hand. The case, made from titanium, which provides optimum sound quality for the alarm, has been increased from 34 mm to 42 mm in keeping with modern tastes.
The Heritage Advisor’s dial design is particularly intricate, with no less than five distinct elements. Decorated in a number of different ways, the various finishes contrast with one another to create a textural richness and stunning reflections. Although the overall tone is cognac, the centre of the dial is opaline, the calendar counter circular, the minute track, has a sunburst satin finish, while the outer flange and alarm power-reserve indicator disk have been sandblasted.
The movement of the Heritage Advisor is equipped with an extra mechanical module which provides an alarm function. Developed in-house by TUDOR, it boasts perfect sound clarity, both clear and consistent. It also features an alarm power-reserve indicator shown on the dial by a disk at 3 o’clock, as well as an ON/OFF display at 9 o’clock, engaged by a pusher at 8 o’clock. In addition to the hour, minutes and seconds, the movement also indicates the date on a counter at 6 o’clock. The winding crown at 2 o’clock, engraved with the name ADVISOR, sets the alarm time. The winding crown, adorned with the TUDOR rose and positioned at 4 o’clock is used to set the time and change the date.
The Heritage Advisor model comes with a choice of a steel bracelet or a cognac-coloured alligator strap with a folding clasp, each accompanied by an extra black silk strap edged in satin, reminiscent of the decoration on the trousers of a tuxedo. Made  using the Jacquard technique according to traditional methods by a hundred-year-old family business from the St-Etienne region of France, this strap is a signature feature of TUDOR’s Heritage line.
