Swiss watch brand TUDOR has launched a new version of its emblematic Heritage Black Bay divers’ watch. Presented for the first time in 2012 and one of the winners at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève the following year, this model now comes in three versions – Heritage Black Bay Burgundy red, Heritage Black Bay Blue and Heritage Black Bay Black.
The Heritage line by TUDOR is distinguished by the unique creative process of the brand’s Style Workshop as well as an exceptional attention to detail. Since 2010 and the presentation of the TUDOR Heritage Chrono, TUDOR has reinterpreted some of the key models in its history. The very opposite of a mere re-edition, a Heritage product is the powerful result of a true temporal and stylistic encounter of past, present and future.
The character of its dome-shaped dial, a detail common to the first TUDOR Submariner, is also drawn from this model. The imposing winding crown is a nod to a model presented in 1958 with the reference number 7924 and nicknamed “Big Crown” by collectors. Its characteristic angular hands, known by connoisseurs as “snowflakes”, were seen from 1969 to the early 1980s. These multiple references to the brand’s aesthetic heritage, combined with contemporary design elements such as the robust 41 mm steel case with a refined finish, a coloured, anodized aluminium crown tube, as well as superbly crafted interchangeable bracelets make the TUDOR Heritage Black Bay a watch with a powerful identity that vividly embodies the brand’s renewal process.
Mounted either on a brushed steel bracelet with folding clasp or on aged leather strap, also with a folding clasp, the Black Bay “Black” is accompanied by a second strap in black fabric. The strap, woven using time-honoured techniques by a traditional company, lends added value to TUDOR creations.
