Catalogue Note

Reference 7031 was the first chronograph model to be introduced by Tudor. Although the influence of the Rolex Daytona (notably the ref.6240) can be seen, the case in fact features a number of unique elements, including the crown guards, bezel calibration and case back design. The model has a very distinctive and sporty vari-coloured dial with a 45-minute register and aperture for date at 6 o'clock. Ref. 7031 is extensively illustrated in: Isnardi, A., Tudor Anthology, Isnardi Editore, 2013, pp.126-135.
