Tudor Heritage

The Tudor Heritage Black Bay family has grown with the launch of the new Heritage Black Bay Bronze model, a 43 mm divers’ watch inspired by the brand’s history and fitted with a mechanical movement developed, manufactured and assembled by Tudor. The characteristic elements of the new model’s personality have been drawn from Tudor’s history. It inherits the general lines, as well as the dial and domed crystal, from the very first Tudor diving watches. It features the particularly prominent winding crown from the famous 7924 reference of 1958, known as Big Crown.

The watch borrows the characteristic angular hands, known as snowflake, from the watches delivered in large quantities to the French National Navy in the 1970s. The drilled holes on the side of the lugs and their particularly pronounced chamfering can be added to the list of notable historic design elements adopted in this new model.

The characteristic element of the Heritage Black Bay Bronze is an impressive bronze case, 43 mm in diameter, which is an aesthetic reference to the use of bronze in historic ships and other diving equipment. The choice of this metal, a high performance aluminum bronze alloy, guarantees the development of a subtle and unique patina to match its user’s habits.

In addition to a highly functional appearance in line with the world to which it pays tribute, the Heritage Black Bay Bronze has entirely brushed finishes that guarantee a homogeneous development of the patina. A combination of chocolate brown dial and bezel – a first for Tudor – with golden and beige accents, completes the model’s look. The visual effect is that of an object that could have battled the waves on its owner’s wrist for many years.

Tudor has identified the historic uses of its watches and reinterpreted them in its latest models. For example, the French Navy had Tudor watches delivered without bracelets and then fitted them with their own straps, handmade or otherwise. One of them, found on a period watch, is made of elastic recovered from a French rescue parachute. It is from this purposeful relic, recognizable by its central yellow thread that the beige and brown woven jacquard strap fitted to the Heritage Black Bay Bronze descends. In line with the characteristics of the Heritage line, it is accompanied also by an aged brown leather strap whose angled cut accentuates a rustic effect. The watch is waterproof to 200 meters and is priced at $3,885.
