Tudor. Aquatic tradition

The Heritage Black Bay family by Tudor welcomes its first in-house manufactured chronograph with a self-winding movement, a column wheel mechanism and a vertical clutch.

Tudor. Aquatic tradition

The new hybrid chronograph Heritage Black Bay Chrono that the firm Tudor presented in Basel 2017 combines the aquatic tradition that the Black Bay family represents with the racing star, the chronograph. The elements that make the model Heritage Black Bay Chrono unique are inspired by Tudor's history. It's general lines, doomed dial and crystal were inspired by the first Tudor diving watches. The winding crown, aka the Big Crown, is identical to that of the famous 7924 reference of 1958, which was the First watch to be water resistant to 200 meters. Last but not least, its very characteristic angular hands, known as snowflakes, were borrowed from the watches used by the French Navy in the 1970s Fabric straps are a signature feature of the Heritage line, TUDOR being one of the first firms to offer them. The strap is produced according to the traditional "Jacquard" technique mastered by a century-old family business located in Saint-Etienne. High-quality manufacturing and comfort when wearing the watch are unique characteristics of this piece. The model Heritage Black Bay Chrono includes a navy blue strap as a gift, designed by TUDOR and woven by master craftsmen.
