Launched this year, the Ref 5205G-013 watch packs a myriad of complications within a 41mm case. As well as the date, this timepiece displays the day, month, annual calendar and moon phase.

Launched at Baselworld as a homage to Tudor’s heritage, the 1926 is poised to be a hot seller this year. The date is presented discreetly on the watch’s embossed dial, a signature of this vintage-inspired line.

The ultimate retro watch, the Sixties Panorama Date comes with a cool green dial with a dégradé effect, which makes the green shade appear increasingly saturated towards the centre.
