Why We Love It
Who doesn’t love a mechanical alarm? The buzzing, the vibrating, the old world charm. This Advisor Reference 7926 has everything we love about a wrist alarm and more—it’s a Tudor.
The 34mm diameter makes this Advisor an easy choice for daily wear, but its sturdy construction is in perfect accord with Tudor’s ethos: to be worn, and to wear well. The sportiness its brought home by the “Explorer” style dial (lightly stippled with patina), with Arabic numerals at the poles. But it’s so handsome and distinctive that you could easily get away with wearing it with a suit.
And you should.
Introduced in 1957, the Advisor is Tudor’s first—and only—wrist alarm. As an answer to the ever-popular JLC Memovox or the Vulcain Cricket, the Advisor presented something unique and exciting to the consumer. Unlike the competition, the Advisor relied on a pin affixed to the inside of the case back, upon which a hammer struck, sounding the alarm.
Eventually, however, Tudor would implement the dual case back design, phasing out the Reference 7926. Consequently, the Reference 7926 would have only a short production run—twelve years. Surviving examples are uncommon, but still resonate with collectors today.
