The Heritage Black Bay family welcomes the new Heritage Black Bay Bronze model, a 43 mm divers' watch inspired by the brand's history and fitted with a mechanical movement developed, manufactured and assembled by TUDOR.
The characteristic elements of the new Heritage Black Bay Bronze model's personality have been drawn from TUDOR’s history. It inherits the general lines, as well as the dial and domed crystal, from the very first TUDOR diving watches. It features the particularly prominent winding crown from the famous 7924 reference of 1958, known as Big Crown. It borrows the characteristic angular hands, known as snowflake, from the watches delivered in large quantities to the French National Navy in the 1970s. The drilled holes on the side of the lugs and their particularly pronounced chamfering can be added to the list of notable historic design elements adopted in this new model.
The Tudor MT5601 Manufacture Movement was developed specifically to equip the Heritage Black Bay Bronze model. Slightly larger in diameter and displaying hours, minutes and seconds functions, it bears the reference MT5601, in which “MT” stands for “Mouvement TUDOR”.
