Heritage Black Bay Black
The model Black Bay, presented for the first time in 2012 and honoured by the jury of the Grand Prix d'Horologerie in Geneva the following year, has been updated for 2016 with a mechanical movement developed, manufactured and assembled in-house by Tudor. One of the brands truly iconic models, it celebrates 60 years of diving watches with extraordinary heritage. The model Black Bay is available in three versions, each with its own personality.
Tudor has also reworked the steel bracelet which comes with this model, taking inspiration from the brands riveted bracelets made in the 1950's and 1960s. These were famous for having rivet heads for attaching the links in evidence on the side of the bracelet, as well as a stepped construction.
