In 2012, Tudor and you will be devoted to the vast ocean world. This year, the brand will continue its unique style, introducing two watches that combine elegance and performance. In honour of the brand’s long history, Heritage Black Bay reinterprets watchmaking standards that were influential in the history of diving watches in the 1950s.
The mysterious bay is filled with a unique atmosphere, which attracts many explorers to explore the mystery. The new Tudor Heritage Black Bay seems to be a treasure in this bay. The Heritage series launched in 2010 draws inspiration from the brand’s representative models in the past, making Heritage Black Bay a perfect interpretation of Tudor’s retro spirit.
Although the Tudor Heritage Black Bay is designed with today’s popular elements, its inspiration is inspired by a diving watch that appeared in 1954. Since its introduction, Tudor has been innovating this watch until the 1980s. Its arched dial displays exquisite vintage-style details, rare burgundy bezels and “snowflake” hands, which make this iconic model stand out from many divers’ watches.
Although Heritage Black Bay is as mysterious as a deep sea treasure, it is difficult to hide its extraordinary charm. Whether it is the line design from the 1954 model, or the refined and extended lugs, it can be perfectly matched with the modern 41 mm stainless steel case. The watch is water-resistant to 200 meters (660 feet), and it is even more elegant with its domed glass. The same black arched surface with large luminous hour markers makes the time clear at a glance. With its pink gold hands showing the oxidizing effect peculiar to the old model, it exudes a slight nostalgia. In addition, the unique purple-red unidirectional rotating outer ring of the Tudor watch is borrowed from the design of the 1970s model, which is more beautiful after matte treatment.
Tudor strives for the perfect modification of details, which can be seen from the winding crown printed with the Tudor rose logo, and the end of the crown, which also matches the fuchsia. Heritage Black Bay uses a new folding buckle developed exclusively by Tudor, and is available with a black textured strap, stainless steel or vintage-style leather strap to choose from.
