HERITAGE BLACK BAY
ICONIC AESTHETIC CODES
TUDOR expresses the aesthetic codes of its iconic Heritage Black Bay in this new 36 mm model. The Heritage Black Bay 36 retains the general lines of the Black Bay family of watches while reducing its proportions. It acts both as an introduction to the Black Bay aesthetic for slimmer wrists and as a more formal option, while remaining both fashionable and sporty.
A UNIQUE CREATIVE PROCESS
A key characteristic of the TUDOR Heritage line is the unique creative process that began in 2010 with the presentation of the TUDOR Heritage Chrono model, a free interpretation of the brand’s first chronograph dating from 1970. Since then, some of the most important references in the history of TUDOR have been reworked within the Heritage line. Far from simply being an identical re-release of a classic, the models in this line bring together the past, present and future, with the aesthetic codes that contributed to the reputation of historic models instilled into contemporary timepieces. The Heritage Black Bay 36, which is part of this approach, offers an alternative reading of the iconic aesthetic codes belonging to the history of TUDOR divers’ watches.
WITH AN EXTRAFABRIC STRAP
With a choice of a steel bracelet or a lightly distressed beige-coloured leather strap with steel folding clasp, each Heritage Black Bay 36 is also supplied with an additional strap in urban camouflage fabric. A signature feature of TUDOR’s Heritage line, the strap is produced according to the traditional “Jacquard” technique mastered by a century-old family business located in the St-Etienne region of France.
SNOWFLAKE HANDS AND BLACK POLISHED DIAL
Like other models in the Black Bay family, the Black Bay 36 features a dial inspired by the TUDOR divers’ watches of the 1950s. It borrows the characteristic angular hands known to collectors as "snowflake" from models that appeared in the brand’s 1969 catalogue. A fixed smooth steel bezel and a shiny black polished dial act as the finishing touches.
