Tudor North Flag watches.

Tudor is a brand that is almost synonymous with outdoor activity, from cars to sailing and more. Now, the brand takes the adventurous spirit a step further with the new North Flag collection with in-house-made movement. The line is named for the arctic and Antarctic—extremes of the planet, temperatures, and conditions. It was also named for the science exhibitions of the early 1950s, when the British North Greenland Expedition scientists wore Tudor Oyster Prince watches throughout their experiences in the hostile conditions. As such, the new watch is completely inspired by history, but offers a visionary look to today’s rugged adventures.
