The 43-millimeter Black Bay Bronze premiered at this year’s Baselworld and expands the Heritage Black Bay collection of watches.
Inspired by the history of Tudor and the dive watch, the watch inherits the design as well as the dial and domed crystal from the very first of the watchmaker’s diving watches. It features the prominent winding crown from the 1950 reference 7924, also known as Big Crown. The watch is named after the bronze case, a nod to the materials used in ships and other diving equipment.
The watch is powered by the Tudor MT5601 Manufacture Movement and is developed specifically to equip the Bronze model. The movement is COSC-certified and has a 70-hour power reserve. So the wearer can take off the watch on Friday night and put it on again on Monday without having to wind.
The watch is placed on a distressed leather strap and is priced at $3,975.
