Tudor Heritage Black Bay Men’s Watch
EXCELLENT CONDITION (LIKE NEW) WITH FULL PAPERS AND BOX
BIG CROWN AND SNOWFLAKE HANDS
The Black Bay draws its most characteristic features from past models in the brand’s history. Its general lines, domed dial and crystal were inspired by the first TUDOR diving watches.
It 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 the TUDOR watches used by the French National Navy in the 1970s
THE WARM PATINA OF AN ANTIQUE WATCH
With its burgundy bezel, black dial, rose gold-toned hands and markers and cream coloured luminescent coating, the original TUDOR Black Bay has the soft and warm patina of an antique watch.
The history of the TUDOR divers’ watch dates back to 1954 and the launch of reference 7922. The first in a long line of ergonomic, legible, accurate and robust divers’ watches, it perfectly embodies the approach formulated by the American architect Louis Sullivan, according to whom the form of an object must follow its function. Furthermore, it laid down the aesthetic and technical foundations of an ideal divers’ watch, those of an understated, functional and reliable tool. The sixty years that followed the launch of the original 7922 saw the constant improvement of the TUDOR divers’ watch and each model gained unanimous acclaim from professionals in the field, including some of the greatest military navies in the world.
First introduced in 2012, the Black Bay won the Revival Prize at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie in Geneva the following year.
