Tudor Big Block 79180

By Paul Altieri

The Tudor 79180 "Big Block" chronograph earns its name after the thicker profile of the case. Reference 79180 hails from Tudor's third generation of chronographs, first developed in the mid-1970s. These watches were among the first Tudors to operate on an automatic chronograph movement via the celebrated Valjoux caliber 7750. The case had to take on a thicker profile to accommodate the then-new movement, which is why it is now affectionately referred to as the "Big Block" Tudor. The first edition was produced under ref. 94300. However, reference 79180 followed a decade later in the late 1980s, featuring a stainless steel bezel and the distinction "OysterDate" below the Tudor logo. The example we have here also features vertical chronograph registers and a date mechanism at 3 o'clock. The register at 6 o'clock is surrounded by the text Automatic - Chrono Time, a new feature introduced with the 79100 series.
