For The Best? The Tudor/Breitling Mechanical Alliance

For The Best? The Tudor/Breitling Mechanical Alliance

Postby Racer-X » April 21st 2017, 7:04pm

by Brice Goulard "When prior to Baselworld 2017, at their annual pre-Basel event, Tudor unveiled the new Black Bay Chronograph, the crowd of journalists present there immediately thought “in-house chronograph movement” (us included). The excitement lasted for less than 5 minutes, as soon as the official disclaimer was launched. Indeed, despite the “MT” nomenclature, this movement is not produced by Tudor, but by Breitling – which soon after, announced the launch of a new 3-hand movement, based on a… Tudor calibre. Good thing or not? This is what we’re going to see with the new Tudor / Breitling alliance."

I like the Bremont lugs on that SuperOcean. If they has indexed the bezel I might have gone this Breitling over the Supermarine a little while back ;-)

I like it a lot. A little heavy on the steel for my taste.
