41 MM CASE ANDBLACK PVD-TREATED COATING
The characteristic features of the Heritage Black Bay Dark model centre on the 41 mm wide steel case, finished with a black PVD-treated coating.
Directly derived from the thin film technology originally developed by NASA for its various space programmes, PVD or “Physical Vapour Deposition” enables practically any inorganic material to be bonded with metals. The Heritage Black Bay Dark has an entirely satin finished matt finish, giving it the appearance of black military utility equipment.
THE TUDOR MANUFACTURE CALIBRE MT5602
This is a variant of the TUDOR Manufacture Calibre developed for the Heritage Black Bay model. It displays hours, minutes and seconds, and bears the reference MT5602, in which “MT” stands for “Manufacture TUDOR”.
BIG CROWN ANDSNOWFLAKE HANDS
The Black Bay Dark features the particularly prominent winding crown from the famous 7924 reference of 1958, aka the Big Crown, while its characteristic angular hands, known as snowflake, were borrowed from TUDOR watches used by the French National Navy in the 1970s.
AGED LEATHER STRAP,
OR A GREY FABRIC STRAP
the heritage Black Bay Dark is available with a choice of a black PVD-treated steel bracelet, aged leather strap with a black PVD-treated steel folding clasp, or a grey fabric strap with matt black PVD-treated buckle.
A signature feature of TUDOR’s Heritage line, the strap is made according to the traditional Jacquard technique mastered by a century-old family business located in the St-Etienne region of France.
Since 1906, their games have begun with the haka, the Maori war challenge that has since become inseparable with All Blacks tradition. A source of national pride, each new performance by the three-time rugby world champions is an enduring tribute to the culture of New Zealand. Some are born to follow. Others are #BornToDare
