In 1958, Tudor’s first generation diving watch ‘Big Crown’ legend came out
After 60 years in 2018
In honour of the immortal classic in the name of 1958
Set time, vintage classic
Crown, markings, dimensions last 60 years
Tudor Biwan model 1958, sincerely pays tribute to the design of the first generation diving watch launched in 1958-model 7924. The model 7924, once known as the ‘big crown’, has a unique crown design that looks exactly like the new Biwan 1958 model.
The prominent red triangle mark on the rotating outer ring is a typical feature of the first generation of the Tudor diving watch with a water resistance of 200 meters, and it is also perfectly continued on the Biwan 1958 model.
The Biwan 1958 model also adopted the 39 mm case that was popular in the 1950s, which is more chic and retro than the previous 41mm dive watch of Tudor. The meticulous and exquisite attention to detail of the watch is only to commemorate the era of classic elegance, but also to respect the extraordinary 1950s of Emperor Helm.
Disruptive innovation, less than expected
Movement, material, and color breakthrough 桎梏
This year, Tudor released its second original movement series. This series of movements MT5402 is mounted in the Biwan 1958, designed for medium models. Compared with other watches in the same series, the Biwan 1958’s thinner and lighter case makes the watch the right proportion and fits the slim wrist. It is the favorite choice for small watch lovers.
Adding new elements to the series, the Biwan 1958 winding crown shaft is made of frosted steel, and the case and the winding crown are decorated with the embossed Tudor rose logo. The three echo each other.
A tailor-made black textured strap with gold stitching is tailored to add a touch of understated vintage.
The Biwan 1958 model has launched a new color scheme. The hour markers, hands and minute scale on the stainless steel outer ring are all plated with gold.

In 1832, in a valley deep in the Swiss Jurassic Mountains, a small village called Soymia created a brand that was later famous for the flying wing hourglass logo-Longines. Longines has played a central role in Soymia’s life since its inception, and this small mountain village has since developed into a watchmaking hub. Thus, the fate of Longines is tightly intertwined with this place in Soymia.
In 1866, Longines founder Auguste Agassiz purchased two adjoining lands on the right bank of the Suze river passing through the Soimia valley. The local dialect is called ‘Les Longines’, and Agassiz’s nephew Ernest Francillon named the factory he built here in 1867. This is the original factory of Longines.

During the 1870s, Francillon’s watchmaking industry concept achieved good results. The factory continued to grow and expand until the first half of the 20th century. In 1911, the Longines watch factory had 1,100 workers and its products were sold throughout the world.
