Swiss watch brand TUDOR updates its Heritage Black Bay family by presenting the first in-house manufacture chronograph with self-winding movement, column wheel and vertical clutch.
Since the presentation in 1970 of the Prince Oysterdate Chronograph, its first chronograph, TUDOR has always produced watches that are closely tied to the world of motorsports. In the same way, since 1954 TUDOR has been constantly improving its professional divers’ watches. The new hybrid Heritage Black Bay Chrono chronograph dares to combine the aquatic heritage represented by the Black Bay family with the queen of the racetrack, the chronograph. Remaining faithful to the Black Bay aesthetic with the famous snowflake hands – a brand signature since 1969 – the Heritage Black Bay Chrono model offers optimum readability against the domed matt black dial.
