The Tudor Heritage Black Bay Black’s design is reminiscent of early Tudor dive watches. The stainless steel case, with it’s beveled satin finish lugs and polished sides has a classic aesthetic, as does the dial, with it’s vintage typeset and original Tudor rose logo at the 12 o’clock position. The rotating bezel with red triangle zero marker was designed with the diver in mind, as they have made it deliberately harder to turn the bezel when the zero marker is at the 12 o’clock position, to avoid inadvertent rotation.
Tudor began to produce watches in 1926, that could be marketed and manufactured as a more affordable timepiece than the Rolex line, while still keeping the same standard of dependability that Rolex had become known for. Over the years, the product line grew to include the renowned Oyster Prince, as well as their diver watches such as the Submariner series.
The Black Bay Black 79220N has a stainless steel case, sapphire crystal and screw down crown with vintage Tudor rose logo, and a unidirectional rotating bezel. It is waterproof rated to 200 meters. The dial is a black matte, with lumed hour markers, and snowflake style hands. The movement is a Caliber 2824.
