Tudor unveils a new black version of the Tudor Heritage Black Bay divers’ watch. Presented for the first time in 2012, Tudor Heritage Black Bay is now available in three versions; burgundy red, blue and black.
Like all the models in the Tudor’s Heritage line, the Tudor Heritage Black Bay borrows some of its details from the Tudor’s historic key models. The Heritage Black Bay derives its overall lines and its domed crystal from the brand’s first divers’ watch, the TUDOR Submariner reference 7922, launched in 1954.
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 from1969 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.
Mounted either on a brushed steel bracelet with folding clasp or on aged leather strap, also with a folding clasp, the Tudor Heritage Black Bay 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.
