Tudor’s successful rebranding was largely built on the Heritage Black Bay collection. Introduced in 2012, it solidified the brand’s entry into a new era – one that is separate from its famous sister company Rolex, but also one that is proud of its heritage.
As Tudor’s most diverse and popular offering, the Heritage Black Bay takes inspiration from the brand’s iconic vintage dive watch designs, while incorporating modern technology and contemporary aesthetics.
Today, the series has crossed over into making complicated watches, while still being faithful to Black Bay’s original design language. From releasing simple, three-hand models during the first few years, Tudor has expanded the collection to include high-performing chronographs, with several editions on offer.
Here are the chronograph models available in the Tudor Black Bay collection:
Available with a choice of a two-tone metal bracelet, a vintage leather strap, and a jacquard fabric band, this watch offers a lot of styling options. The 200-meter water resistance and the Caliber MT5813 that runs inside make it highly reliable.
Much like the previous models, its dial comes in black and has red accents on the signature and the tip of the second hand. The domed sapphire crystal offers great protection against scratches, while its 200-meter depth rating makes it appropriate for both diving and racing.
Much like the previous models, it remains true to the Black Bay’s design DNA with its Snowflake hands and beveled edges. However, its case – although still chunky – has been refined and slimmed down to about 14.4mm to accommodate those with smaller wrists.
The Black Bay Chrono is no doubt functional and versatile. Aside from making waves as a series of robust tool watches, the collection has become recognized as the source of perfect daily wearers for many. Explore our wide selection of Tudor Black Bay Chronowatches at SwissWatchExpo.com.
