Rolex’s little brother, Tudor, knows what’s up: The new Monte Carlo


Now this is how it’s done. Hodinkee has a pic of the new Tudor Monte Carlo, a two-register chrono with a little bit of style.

Leaked today is a modern day equivalent of the Tudor Monte Carlo, and it is an absolute knockout! In this words of an esteemed (nameless) colleague and authority, “the Tudor historic lines steals the show!”. We tend to agree, when you look at the nice but completely expected and almost required refreshes of the Rolex Submariners and Explorer.

This new Monte Carlo is absolutely perfect, and it does the original a great service by imitating but not copying the looks that made it so famous. Sized at 42mm (perfect), this chronograph even has a rotating bezel and comes on a NATO strap!!

They definitely mean business with the NATO strap and at about $4,000 you’re talking prices anyone can consider.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. Another boring retro watch. Yawn! Even the brand name is an authentic 70s re-run – do they still sell them, or is this a re-launch? It’s like looking at a digitally-enhanced repeat of Starsky & Hutch. Come on Rolex, you keeping saying you’re creative, but then you just jump-on the pathetic old retro trend! Serving-up up re-heated 70s gear and even bringing back the old brand name as well is pretty sad! For 4k I can have an Omega or a Breitling that was designed this century and has a brand name I can feel proud of… what gives?
