The Fourth Coming
The Prince Chronographs were Tudor’s fourth series of chronographs. The 79200 series were launched in 1995 and had a much sleeker case compared to earlier Tudor chronographs. Much like the Daytonas of the era, the Princes wore a low profile on the wrist with the introduction of the sapphire crystal.
Tudor introduced a new dial version with the Prince Chronos. Alongside the applied baton marker dials, they also offered dials with printed Arabic markers.
A New Bracelet
The Prince Chronos heralded a new bracelet design that took over from the Oyster bracelet. The five-link bracelet was a hybrid of the Jubilee and Oyster bracelets.
The 79260 is distinguished by its black tachymeter bezel. There were three different bezel types on the Tudor Chronos, each with a different reference number.
