    Chief. It is 30 ish mm. Was for the Canadian market. The case back is signed ROLEX. Here is a pic of the movement. I am sure someone with better knowledge of movements can pipe in with more details. @ChiefMark

    Pleased to pick up the Tudor chrono earlier this week

    Even more pleased to have some sun.

    In a short summary, I think Tudor did a great job with this new chrono. Firstly the performance of the movement has surprised me. Early days but it’s running flat +0 and the chronograph activation is positively mechanical which is a nice departure from the smooth refinement of other brands. I can’t say wether this is a downside and in reference to lack of refinement in the movement, but I like the tactile feel.

    The contentious issue about the thickness, to me, is a non issue. With the redesigned caseback and lug shape this sits dead flat on the wrist, hiding any on paper thickness it has. It doesn’t feel or look like a 14.4mm watch.

    As you can see I chose black, I compared both but black was my pick, even before I saw it in person. It has a vintage feel in look not size but just enough but not too many vintage features to keep it on the side of interesting vs an embarrassing copy.

    As I chronograph collector, I’m pleased to add this one.

    Very cool. I’m familiar with the history of the Skyrocket. Rolex shipped movements to Canada for assembly in Canadian cases. Some of those movements were signed, others were not. I was just curious. It’s a great watch either way.
    Thanks for sharing!

    After wearing my favourite 57 year old Accutron for the last week, back to my favourite 50 year old Rolex Air-King Date. I enjoyed the Accutron, but the average size expansion bracelet on my 8 1/2” wrist is not comfortable. The Air-King I’ve owned for all of its 50 years. It came with a steel bezel. For over 30 years, I have had a NOS genuine 14-karat yellow gold Rolex bezel in my stash. So, I celebrated the Golden Anniversary of ownership by modding the Air-King with the gold bezel. I rather like it. Tell me, what is it like to actually own a NEW watch? ;)

    You know, it makes me genuinely happy when I see people sporting these and completely embracing the insane bang for the buck while giving the finger to the folks who keep dissing these great watches :thumbsup:
