Tudor Black Bay

by Tudor
£2,500.00

The Black Bay pays tribute to the Tudor Submariners of the past without being an out-and-out reissue. The first watch the Black Bay draws from is the original reference 7922 Tudor "Big Crown" Submariner from 1954. These watches were defined, as you might expect, by the large winding crown and the lack of crown guards on the case, both featured on the Black Bay. The Big Crowns are coveted by collectors and can command serious prices. There is also the Tudor Rose dial signature at 12 o'clock carried through from the first Submariners into the 1960s. On the Black Bay, both this and the curved "Rotor Self-Winding" signature below the 200m depth rating at 6 o'clock, as well as the minutes track around the edge of the dial, are printed in either gold or silver to match the hands and surrounds. Finally there are the Snowflake hands, first introduced in the 1970s to improve the readability of these purpose-built dive watches. Beveled lugs on the stainless steel case and an aged leather strap round out the vintage inspired details.
