Tudor is largely known for the Black Bay, but the beloved Swiss firm also has a handful of under-the-radar watches in its catalog that don’t often get too much attention from press or, quite frankly, enthusiasts. In part, that’s because Tudor hasn’t really focused a whole lot of PR energy on these other watches, at least not in the States. Case in point: at Baselworld earlier this year, the 1926 collection sort of came and went, despite actually being quite nice in the metal. It’s hard to get out of the looming Black Bay shadow.
But it looks as if Tudor is trying to change that with an overhaul of one of their older, dressier lines, the Glamour Double Date series. The revamp comes with a new mid-case, a more contemporary dial design, and, perhaps most significant, a new in-house manufacture caliber, MT5641 (but more on that later).
