That looks very smart, blue and white what's not to like about that? Class. 

Great purchase. :thumbs_up:

For £50 you can't go wrong Rob:teethsmile:

 

 

 

On a serious note that looks pretty good, I never really looked at these before so a bit of research is in order.

 

Enjoy.

It's very nice. I'm not a great fan of Tudor's usual suspects, bar the Blue Pelagos, which has huge presence on the wrist, so it's nice to see something different. It has a very nice colour combo and guilloche. Appearance wise it's in Aqua Terra territory and is up there with them really. :thumbsup:

Not at all, very classy, not relying on the Tudor name for kudos, hands sized dead right for the dial, numerals on the even numbers leaves nice space for the date, you've mentioned the texture on the dial which I always like.  Only someone mean would denigrate it, lovely watch.  The only problem is your other watches might struggle to get on your wrist now!

How smooth is the manual winding Rob? I am aware it's an auto a 2824-2 but still worth asking.

What are your impressions of the case and bracelet finish.?

Not hand wound it yet,Jon , it was already set up and running for me . 

Im very happy with the case and bracelet , the back of the watch is bland but to be honest that's what I expected it's nearly as bad as the Rolex sub :laugh:.

overall I'm very happy with it ,never had a Tudor before so thought it was about time I tried one . It was this or the aqua terra I'm glad I went this  way and saved a few quid .

Although I know this is a watch forum, somehow, I was expecting a child. :(

Or a ferret, or something...

i like the blue colour, it not just a navy or pale blue, its like a pastel blue, more dressy than the AT, which looks a lot more tool like. I like them both, but that's classy.

I think you made a good decision, it will be easy to service when the time comes and not too expensive.

Tudor always seem a bit more off the beaten track the 1926 range should bolster this, a bit more discerning than Omega, a bit like buying a Maserati rather than a Mercedes.
