The Tudor Heritage Black Bay Bronze inherits its design from the early Tudor Submariner timepieces, made for military use, in the mid-1960s. While being classic as well as contemporary in its appearance, the Black Bay Bronze is a unique timepiece with it’s aged look that will continue to develop its rich patina over time.
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 Heritage Black Bay Bronze has a copper-aluminum alloy case that allows it to continue to develop it’s unique, rich patina. The case back is steel, with a PVD coating to match the case coloring while preventing oxidation from occurring on the wrist when worn. The milk chocolate brown colored bezel insert complements the brown dial, with numerals at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions, as well as the dot hour markers and snowflake hands with their gold surround. The in-house movement, the MT5601 has a 70-hour power reserve.
This Tudor Heritage Black Bay Bronze is in excellent condition. Slight marks from wear are visible in photos. The watch crown has the distinct Tudor Rose engraved, and the sapphire crystal is scratch-free.
