Mirroring the original shape and proportions of the original Meilleur Tudor Heritage Chrono Replique Montres model references 7149, 7159/0, 7169/0 and the 7031/0 the Tudor Heritage Chrono ref. 70330N launched five years ago in 2010, brings the best of the vintage world into modern times with a flawless execution that will captivate those watchlifestylers wanting to avoid the headaches that vintage shopping can bring.
The Tudor Heritage Replique Montres really brings that vintage feel without the headaches or budget issues that purchasing a vintage Tudor Monte Carlo might bring, especially considering all the fakes and redone dials out there. If you like vintage Tudors as much as we do, this is the way to go. Fitted with a generous 42 mm case that wears slightly smaller, the Tudor Heritage Chrono is a robust sporty looking timepiece that can be worn in any setting or with any outfit even better when wearing your fancy orange Hermès ties.
Fitted with either a black/grey dial or grey/black matte dial, the dial is fitted with three-dimensional home plate shaped hour markers filled with superuminova, two multi-level trapeze-shaped registers and a date indicator at 6 o’clock, that unlike its predecessor Tudor Monte Carlo is not fitted with a cyclops.
The register at 3 o’clock is a running seconds indicator while the one at 9 o’clock is a 45-minute chrono register perfectly suited to time soccer matches with their 45 minute periods. The orange chrono seconds hand along with the minute chapter ring also in orange and the orange accent between the 5 and 10 minute mark on the chrono register really bring this dial to life. Something we discovered under the Tudor Replique Montres and while taking these macro pictures, is that the orange chrono seconds hand has a very nice grainy texture. Overall, the dial is very nicely finished and the lume is nice and bright.
