TUDOR Heritage Black Bay Bronze
A robust diver’s watch with in-house calibre.
The characteristic elements of the Heritage Black Bay Bronze 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. It borrows the characteristic angular hands, known as snowflake, from the watches delivered in large quantities to the French National Navy in the 1970s.
The distinctive element of the Heritage Black Bay Bronze is the imposing bronze case with brushed finishes, 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 aluminium bronze alloy, guarantees the development of a subtle and unique patina to match its user's habits. The chocolate-brown dial – protected by a sapphire crystal - displays hours, minutes, seconds and its color perfectly matches with the unidirectional rotating bezel made of bronze with a disc in matt brown anodized aluminium.
The Tudor Heritage Black Bay Bronze is equipped with the MT560 in-house automatic calibre of excellent precision and proven robustness which has a variable inertia oscillator with silicon balance spring. It offers 70-hour power reserve and is waterproof to 200 meters. Furthermore the movement is certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).
This model is accompanied by an aged brown leather strap with bronze buckle and it’s sold with an additional fabric strap included in the box.
