A sophisticated timepiece that epitomizes Tudor's commitment to both elegance and functionality, the Tudor Advisor ref. 7926 was introduced in 1957 as an alarm wristwatch that would remind its wearer of whatever upcoming appointment, meeting or other such event they had that day. Boasting a sleek stainless steel case on an Oyster bracelet and with a polished steel bezel, the Advisor’s most notable construction detail is the use of dual crowns, as its alarm function is not set or wound through the same crown that winds and sets its time-keeping functions. Fitted with a simple sunburst silver dial adorned with applied hour markers, the Advisor’s display highlights its alarm function’s distinctive red hand that adds a touch of flair to its design. Produced until 1968, the Advisor showcases Tudor’s mission to produce no-frills timepieces for the everyday man who needed a reliable watch to perform its function while managing the rough and tumble of everyday life.

Watch is in excellent vintage condition. Case has sharp edges and thick full lugs. There are minor signs of wear along the surface that you'd typically expect of a watch of this age, but no major scratches or dings. The dial is in very good condition. There are minor spots visible along the surface that are primarily located near the indexes, along with some marks on the edge of the dil visible near the upper right quadrant. Indexes have oxidation as seen in the images. Watch comes on a genuine folded link oyster band with 257 end pieces. The band is later than the watch. It has 13 folded links total, and will fit a 7 1/4" wrist. There is minor stretch.
A physically loud timepiece with a quietly understated design, the Advisor shares Tudor's vision as a practical tool watch that doesn't use distracting design details to hide what it is really about.
