Among the legendary Tudor chronographs, the Tudor ‘Montecarlo’ chronograph (model 7169), which is most familiar to watch lovers, can be regarded as a representative of classic watches. Since its introduction in 1973, the watch has launched a number of different models, the most notable of which are blue, gray and orange models.

The textured strap is made in cooperation with a long-established traditional textile workshop. Its color tone and the unique color of the surface cleverly ensure comfortable wearing.
Two chronograph dials are set in two blue trapezoidal patterns, one is the small seconds dial at 3 o’clock, and the other is the famous 45 minutes that wrote a new chapter in the history of Tudor chronographs in the 1970s Time counter at 9 o’clock.
The date display window at the six o’clock position also matches the overall black and white, which is easy to read and clear.
