Gents’ stainless steel Tudor Heritage Black Bay strap watch. Ref.M79220R. Self-winding calibre MT5602 movement, complete with original box and paperwork dated 2016.
Wanting to enter the competitive world of luxury diver’s watches and as a sister brand to Rolex, Tudor released their first iteration of the Submariner in 1954. In those days, there were very few discernible differences between Tudor and Rolex besides the text applied to the dial and, quite unfairly, Tudor’s were often thought of as a ‘poor man’s Rolex’. Over the years, however, Tudor has grown considerably in confidence and individuality and re-named their Diver’s watch the ‘Black Bay’ to set themselves apart from Rolex; offering a truly unique watch of astonishing quality which, although originally based on a Submariner, has a charm and vintage style all of its own.
This gent’s Tudor Heritage Black Bay has a round stainless steel 41mm case, screw-down crown and case back, is water resistant up to 200m and has a durable Sapphire crystal glass. The matte black dial is decorated with gilt text and indices, centre Snowflake hands, luminous dot markers and is highlighted by a matte finish burgundy aluminium unidirectional bezel. The watch is fitted to a vintage brown leather strap, complete with folding clasp and safety clip and comes with an additional NATO pin-buckle strap, included with it’s original box and paperwork, dated 2016.
