A GLAMOROUS NEW MOVEMENT FOR TUDOR
A new high-performance Manufacture Calibre MT5641 has been developed for the Glamour Double Date model and for the first time, a TUDOR Manufacture Calibre has a small second’s hand, as well as an instantaneous date change at midnight.
As with all TUDOR Manufacture Calibres, the MT5641 was purpose built for robustness, longevity and reliability.
The three key features are certainly qualities you would expect from a luxury watch, and you can therefore have faith that your TUDOR Glamour Double Date timepiece will be a sound investment.
Adorned with 32 jewels, this movement measures 33.8mm in diameter and 7.41mm in thickness
Additionally, this automatic movement has a power reserve of approximately 70 hours and a frequency of 28,800 beats per hour. Equally as impressive is the fact that this Swiss Chronometer has been officially certificated by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), so you can be confident in the quality of this piece.
In a rare occurrence for TUDOR, the magnificent finishes of this precise Manufacture Calibre are visible through a transparent case back. This is a beautiful piece of design, as you can see the intricate mechanical notes of the piece, allowing you an insight into the architecture of the movement.
Boasting a 70-hour power reserve, the Glamour Double Date is ideal for short business travel or weekend trips away.
Unmistakable design and functioning, combined with TUDOR’s renowned precision and robustness, ensures the new distinguished Glamour Double Date model steps out of the shadows and proudly presents itself in a notable new light.
