In time for Baselworld 2014, TUDOR Releases New Version of Heritage Black Bay

An open book on decades of deep-water adventures, the TUDOR Heritage Black Bay is a long-lost treasure, returning to the light of day. First presented in 2012 in a version with warm colours, the following year it was awarded the "revival" category prize by the jury of the 2013 Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève. The TUDOR Heritage Black Bay returns in 2014 icy and sharp. This new version exalts the original purpose of the TUDOR submariner tool-watches and their use on the wrists of divers serving in some of the world's greatest navies.

The Heritage line by TUDOR is distinguished by the unique creative process of the brand's Style Workshop as well as an exceptional attention to detail. The aesthetic codes that contributed to the renown of the historic models are preserved and injected with modern touches to update its iconic status. The TUDOR Heritage Black Bay embodies the pinnacle of this creative approach, since its inspiration is anchored, not in a historic model, but rather in the nearly 60 years of the brand's emblematic divers' watches.

The TUDOR Heritage Black Bay derives its overall lines and its domed crystal from the brand's first divers' watch, the TUDOR Submariner reference 7922, launched in 1954. It also owes to its ancestor its domed dial, a feature shared by the first TUDOR Submariner models, but which had since vanished. The multiple references to the brand's aesthetic heritage, combined with contemporary design elements such as the robust 41 mm steel case with a refined finish, a coloured, anodized aluminium crown tube, as well as interchangeable bracelets make the TUDOR Heritage Black Bay a watch with a powerful identity that vividly embodies the brand's renewal process.
