TUDOR CHRONOGRAPH "MONTECARLO" VINTAGE - 7159/0 - PRICE ON REQUEST

TUDOR CHRONOGRAPH "MONTECARLO" VINTAGE

 

The second-generation Tudor chronographs appeared in 1971 and remained in the catalogue until 1977. Nicknamed Tudor “Montecarlo” by enthusiasts because their dials are reminiscent of a casino roulette wheel, the 7100 series chronographs retain the case of their predecessors as well as the spirit of their dials with painted hour markers, but their movement is different. In place of the Valjoux Calibre 7734, the Tudor chronographs were now equipped with the manually-wound Valjoux 234. This new movement offered the wearer better accuracy thanks to a higher frequency – 21,600 beats per hour versus the former 18,000 beats per hour – and had a more sophisticated chronograph mechanism, with a clutch and column wheel. An additional combination of colours was also introduced on this series with a blue and grey dial and two types of matching blue bezels.
Three chronographs constitute this new series. Reference 7149/0 with a Plexiglas bezel and a 500-unit per hour graduated tachymetric scale replaced reference 7031/0 in the catalogue. Reference 7159/0 with a satin-finished steel bezel and an engraved tachymetric scale replaced reference 7032/0, while reference 7169/0 became the incarnation, from then on produced in large numbers, of the prototype 7033/0 with a rotatable bezel.
In the early years of the 7100 series, the steel bracelet remained the same as on the first Tudor chronographs. It later evolved towards a bracelet still of the Oyster type, but with solid links, reference 78360.
