If there was only one watch of choice, then I would hope it to be a Tudor. For me, it represents adventure, exploration and a lifestyle that is as relaxed as it is stylish. With under a week to go until Christmas Day, Tudor have released this set of lifestyle images to show the Tudor man behind his watch of choice, whether it be the North Flag (above), Fastrider (middle) or the Pelagos (bottom).
Each style launched as Basel earlier this year and we decided to shoot each piece in the environment of a different man. The first is focused on the Northflag for the man that seeks a sleek aesthetic who buys into a minimal lifestyle; the second is more of a hands on man that requires a functional timepiece such as the Fastrider; the third the the traditional gent that likes the finer things in life that go with the tradition style, including the Pelagos.
Firstly, Pelagos is one of the most complete traditional mechanical divers’ watches on the market which was updated in 2105 with a movement manufactured by Tudor and an additional colour combination; a reference to the glorious period in the history of the brand’s divers’ watches.
Next, The North Flag is an exceptional watch which can adapt to the coldest and most remote extremities of the planet. The model is inspired by the British North Greenland Expedition, where members wore Tudor Oyster Prince watches on their wrists while carrying out a series of experiments in the most hostile conditions imaginable on Earth.
Lastly, the great outdoors, freedom and adventure are the highest callings for the Fastrider chronograph, the most recent watchmaking manifestation of Tudor’s partnership with the legendary Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati. Inspired by the non conformist spirit of the famous Ducati Scrambler, this new chronograph is a travelling companion that is both technical and exhilarating with a youthful and spontaneous style.
Whilst I am a sucker for superb flat-plan styling as well as a super timepiece, these shots represent what is great about a great brand and a superb range of watches.
