TUDOR HERITAGE BLACK BAY

TUDOR HERITAGE BLACK BAY

Steeped in the mysterious aura of a hidden bay, the TUDOR Heritage Black Bay offers a window onto several decades of adventures in deep waters. The distinguished lines of the watch and its iconic dome-shaped dial are notably inspired by the 1954 edition of the TUDOR Submariner.

First introduced in 2012 in a version featuring warm burgundy and black-chocolate tones, the TUDOR Heritage Black Bay is also available in icy blue tones and in a new, all-black model.

The newest model in the family, the TUDOR Heritage Black Bay “Black” echoes the pioneering spirit of TUDOR’s first divers’ watches. Combining historic patina with technology, this model adopts the famous red triangle of the unidirectional bezel from the TUDOR divers’ models of the late 1950s.

Dubbed the ‘Midnight Blue’ by enthusiasts, this TUDOR Heritage Black Bay features an icy face and sharp contrasts, giving the watch the appearance of a professional, technical instrument.

With its black dial, pink-gold hands and hour markers, creamcoloured luminescent material and burgundy red bezel, this Heritage Black Bay model is reminiscent of the gentle warm patina of an antique watch.

REVIVAL OF
A DIVING ICON

REVIVAL OF A DIVING ICON

Like all models in the Heritage line, the TUDOR Heritage Black Bay draws inspiration from the aesthetic codes that contributed to the renown of iconic models in the brand’s history. The very opposite of a mere reedition, the Heritage Black Bay is is the powerful result of a true temporal and stylistic encounter of past, present and future.

Presented for the first time in 2012, the Heritage Black Bay was awarded the “Revival” prize at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève the following year.

VINTAGE LINES

An open book on decades of deep-water adventures, the Heritage Black Bay features lines inspired by the brand’s first diver’s watch, the TUDOR Submariner. Its slender, elongated lugs, domed crystal and dial are all details shared by the first TUDOR Submariners.

WINDING CROWN

The imposing winding crown of the Heritage Black Bay is a nod to a model presented in 1958 and dubbed “Big Crown” by collectors. The watch is waterproof to 200 metres (660 feet).

PAST AND PRESENT

Superbly crafted interchangeable wristbands, a robust 41 mm steel case with a refined finish and a coloured, anodized aluminium crown tube. These are just a few of the contemporary design elements that contribute to the Heritage Black Bay’s powerful identify.

Other details meanwhile - such as the characteristic angular-shaped “Snowflakes” hands first introduced by TUDOR in 1969, evoke the brand’s aesthetic heritage.

GENEROUS LUMINESCENCE

The elegantly domed black dial displays generous luminescent hour markers for perfect visibility.

THE STRAP

Like all models in the Heritage line, the TUDOR Heritage Black Bay comes with two bracelets or straps: an adjustable fabric strap with a sophisticated weave, and a choice of either an aged-leather strap with a folding clasp, or a satin-finished steel bracelet with a folding clasp.

OVER 60 YEARS OF HISTORY REVISITED

The Heritage line represents the very essence of the TUDOR spirit and is the standard-bearer of its stylistic identity. Revisiting some of the most emblematic models in the history of the brand, it pays homage to its unique values and to more than six decades of rich heritage.

The timekeepers in the Heritage line are not simply vintage re-issues. They are genuine reinterpretation-of-an-icons in which past, present and future are combined. While retaining the original spirit, aesthetic codes and key characteristics of the historic models, TUDOR’s Style Workshop places them at the very heart of the contemporary world, modernising them stylistically with small, subtle touches and adding new technical characteristics to optimise their performance.

And so "tomorrow's icons" are born - modern classics, harmoniously combining form and function. DISCOVER THE TOOL WATCHES
