The 79200 series watches featured a slightly revised and softer case design and the addition of a sapphire crystal. The movement remained the Valjoux calibre 7750 self winding chronograph. There were three references to the 79200 series. The 79260 with black aluminium bezel with tachymeter scale, the 79270 with rotating 12 hour bezel and the 79280 with polished stainless steel tachymeter bezel. In 1997 Tudor introduced Tiger Woods as a brand spokesperson and his name soon found its way onto the dials of the 79200 serial chronographs. Tudor even produced a serial of brightly coloured “exotic” dials including yellow, red and green.
