    Why no love for the Advisor ?

    Hi guys,

    So the question is: Why no love for the Tudor Advisor new release? Have not seen much talk about it. Nothing compared to the Pelagos or the BB?

    I was looking at the black dial and it looks quite intriguing and the fit and finish seem to be top notch. Why not too much talk about it?

    For those who don’t know, this is one of Tudor's latest release. Remake of the 1957 Advisor. It has a 42mm case, ETA based with an in-house alarm complication module added.

    What’s your take.

    Cheers,
    GB

    Hadn't seen it before, but I quite like the gray dial one, and I've always wanted an alarm. My experience with Tudor has been very positive so far, I'd definitely consider getting one if the bank account allowed for it.

    In the steel it felt a little plain... like it was missing something. It feels similar to the B&M Clifton watches but not as nice... albeit w/ the alarm.

    Did you see the black one? I had a similar feeling on the white one but the black dial felt much nicer in person.

    I quite like that, apart from the name and the over size pusher; but anything with Dauphine hands has a head start with me.

    Drawback to me is size...42mm is my max, but add lug length?

    I didn't I only saw the white. I'll have to check out the black dial at some point... I wanted to like it. I like Tudor as a brand, but they don't have anything in my size that would work for me.

    I think it's a fantastic watch. Tudor is really upping their game. The Advisor, and the GranTour are two particularly nice watches that seem to have been overshadowed by the two dive watches, and the Chronographs. Hopefully that changes, because they have a really solid core of dive watches, chronos, dress watches, other complication watches, and simple 3 handed sport watches.

    I took a close look at the GranTour before I bought my Black Bay - cheaper than the BB, but no less well built. And equally attractive to my eye - though in a different way.

    I agree, the Advisor doesn't get enough attention with all the hype around the sportier new releases: the Black Bay (which I own and love), the Pelagos, and the heritage chronos. I have seen the Advisor in person in white and preferred that dial. For me the issue is the 42mm size which wears larger than I'd like.

    I like mechanical alarm complications. Very cool.
