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
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
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.
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
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".
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
