Tudor Black Bay was born out of a desire to create a timepiece that was durable, accurate, and elegant – a simple goal to state but an extremely difficult one to achieve. Nevertheless, over the past several years the Tudor Heritage Black Bay has grown into an important, versatile and highly collectible selection which reflects the brand’s rich history in producing world class diving watches, fully equipped to meet the needs of timekeeping beneath the waves.
Black Bay Dark: color that makes a difference
The elements of the Black Bay Dark’s personality have been drawn from Tudor’s history.
For decades, the values of Tudor watches have been assessed on the basis of functionality: in addition to unsurpassed precision, the watches offer a unique wearing experience.
Tudor Black Bay Dark follows the tradition of the Tudor Oyster Submariner of 1954, which also had no date display; its legible, undecorated dial simply has eight round and three rectangular hour markers, as well as one triangular marker at 12 o’clock.
The striking hour and seconds hands with charming “snowflake” shapes are associate with the vintage Submariner, which was proudly presented by atelier in 1969.
Framed by a coordinating black unidirectional rotatable steel bezel, the dial is presented within a 41mm black PVD-treated steel case. The signature large crown draws attention to itself, dominating the right side of the case.
Absolute harmony of form and function
The automatic movement that drives the hour, minute, and seconds offers the wearer a generous 70-hour autonomy.
The indication of guaranteed water resistance is engraved in red on the monochromatic dial, and together with the red triangle on the rotatable bezel they are part of the list of an important historic design features that reappear in Dark model. The 200m water resistance is ideal for active lifestyle.
A wide range of different straps and bracelets continues to add Black Bay Dark’s unrivaled variety. No matter which one you choose, all three options preserve the visual harmony that makes the watch absolutely unique.
