Tudor 1926 movements

I am considering one of these for a family member. I hear good reports that the tweaks that Tudor make to the ETA movement on the BB36 result in excellent timekeeping.

I am wondering if the 1926 model receives the same enhancements or is it a stock ETA movement?

I also read that in the case of Tudor watches, when the time comes for a service they do not actually service your movement, they swap it out for a pre-serviced movement. I can see the efficiency of that as a business model and I can see the sense in it if there is a fault under warranty, but as a general service policy it does not seem to fit with the brand. Is this accurate or just a rumour?

Accurate.

I don't think Tudor do too much with calibre 2671. Its the worst movement used across the two brands. I find it surprising they still make use of it.

As long as your family member isn't intent on obsessing over gain of a few minutes in a month and content to make adjustments every now and then, they'll be fine.

Thank you for response. Was considering the larger 36mm which is stated to have a 2824 movement - but that does not mean it has the mods of the 2824 used in the BB line. So I wondered.

The 2824's aren't bad.

Dont forget in most all ETA movements there are 5 grades the two top grades are chronometer grade and thats what Tudor uses.And when regulated correctly can match a consistent COSC standard.

2824 Tudor variation is an excellent movement - I had a Black Bay 41 Blue for a year before I got my Explorer and it kept excellent time. 1926 is an excellent watch for the money, nearly £1000 cheaper than the BB41, same movement, 100m depth rating and great quality bracelet and clasp. Bugger, I think you’ve made me decide I want one now as well!

Agree. My Tudors with ETA movements - BB36 and Hydronaut II - have both been extremely accurate with excellent positional adjustment. And, the ETA is very easy to regulate yourself, if you choose to do so.
