Ref. 79250bm-0001

The Heritage Black Bay family is growing with the arrival of the new Heritage Black Bay Bronze, a 43 mm divers’ watch inspired by the brand’s history and fitted with a mechanical movement developed and produced in-house by TUDOR.

HIGH-PERFORMANCE ALUMINIUM BRONZE ALLOY WITH BRUSHED FINISHES

The Heritage Black Bay Bronze features an imposing bronze case, 43 mm in diameter. An aesthetic reference to the use of bronze in historic ships and diving equipment, the choice of this metal — a high-performance aluminium bronze alloy with brushed finishes — lends a highly functional appearance to the watch and guarantees the development of a subtle and unique patina.

CHARACTERISTIC ELEMENTS

The characteristic elements of the new Heritage Black Bay Bronze have been drawn from TUDOR’s history. It inherits its general lines, as well as its domed dial and crystal from the TUDOR’s first diving watches.

It features the particularly prominent winding crown from the famous 7924 reference of 1958, aka Big Crown, while its characteristic angular hands, known as snowflake, were borrowed from TUDOR watches used by the French National Navy in the 1970s. The drilled holes on the side of the lugs and their particularly pronounced chamfering are also key design features inspired by history.

The TUDOR MT5601 MANUFACTURE MOVEMENT

This is a variant of the TUDOR manufactured movement developed specifically to equip the Heritage Black Bay Bronze model. Slightly larger in diameter and displaying hours, minutes and seconds functions, it bears the reference MT5601, in which "MT" stands for "Manufacture TUDOR".

In 2015, TUDOR announced the first mechanical movement in its history to have been developed, manufactured and assembled in-house. A high-performance calibre of excellent precision and proven robustness, it offers a 70-hour power reserve meaning that its wearer can, for example, take off the watch on Friday evening and put it on again on Monday morning without having to wind it. Beating to a frequency of 28,800 beats/hour or 4Hz, the movement is regulated by a variable inertia oscillator with silicon balance spring, held in place by a traversing bridge - a guarantee of its robustness. Furthermore, the movement is certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).
