PLACE YOUR BETS

It was this series that became known by collectors as the original Monte Carlo watches, as the dials had a resemblance to the roulette tables of the famous casinos of Monte Carlo.

MULTI-COLOUR MONTE CARLO

The use of bright colour was quite pronounced, with bright orange elements on both chronograph registers as well as on the outer seconds' markers. The 7100 series remained in the Tudor catalogue until approximately 1977.

PLASTIC FANTASTIC

The 7149 with acrylic tachymeter bezel is the rarest reference as the bezels were quite fragile and prone to damage.

HIGH BEAT MOVES

The manually wound Tudor-modified caliber 234 was a high-frequency movement with 21,600 beats per hour.
