Tudor introduces Heritage Black Bay Dark
Back at BaselWorld 2016, we had a chance to see Tudor's amazing new diver – Heritage Black Bay Dark. This masculine steel timepiece is entirely crafted from blackened steel, and powered by a mechanical in-house Tudor movement. In terms of its design, the newest addition to the Heritage Black Bay collection, the Heritage Black Bay Dark, remains faithful to the first Tudor diving watches. It features the domed dial and crystal, and a prominent winding crown – the Big Crown - borrowed from the historical 7924 reference from 1958. The distinctive angular snowflake hands are borrowed from the watches that had been supplied to the French National Navy, during the 1970s. The sleek black dial is enlivened with bright white indices, oversized hands, and red-colored indication of the guaranteed water resistance level.
Tudor Heritage Black Bay Dark measures 41 mm in diameter. Its satin-finish, stainless steel case is coated in black using a NASA-developed PVD-treatment. PVD stands for physical vapor deposition, and it enables any inorganic material to be bonded with metals. The case accommodates a variant of the in-house movement developed for the Heritage Black Bay model, MT5602. Powering indications for hours, minutes and seconds, the self-winding movement offers 70 hours of water resistance, and it beats a frequency of 28,800 vibrations/hour. The movement is regulated by a variable inertia oscillator with silicon balance spring, and certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).
This genuine diver’s watch is equipped with unidirectional rotating bezel which is made of blackened steel, furnished with a matt black anodized aluminum disc. The screw-down winding crown engraved with the TUDOR rose protects the watch from the ingress of water, while ensuring up to 200 meters (660 ft) of water resistance.
Tudor Heritage Black Bay Dark is supplied with two straps. The wearer can choose from a black PVD-treated steel bracelet or an aged leather strap with a black PVD-treated steel folding clasp, while each Heritage Black Bay Dark model is also supplied with an extra grey fabric strap. Tudor Heritage Black Bay Dark, reference 79230DK, retails at CHF 3'950 (VAT incl.) – about 4'100 USD.
