We know you love those Tudor timepieces, so we are happy to bring you one of the newest – just unveiled here at BaselWorld 2014. The newest watch, the Heritage Black Bay Reference 79220B is a blend of heritage and authenticity. It is inspired by the brand’s first diver watch, the Tudor Submariner 7922 that was launched in 1954. It also fulfills the needs of water adventurers thanks to a “Big Crown” that recalls the reference 7924 introduced in 1958 to make turning the crown easier. Additionaly, it blends features from pieces dating back to 1970s with its angular hands known as “Snowflakes.”
The Heritage Black Bay Reference 79220B isn’t all vintage, though. Its bold 41mm steel case is accented with an updated midnight blue anodized aluminum crown tube bezel that is deeply alluring. It is sold with interchangeable bracelets. Making the watch a real keeper in terms of aesthetics is the high-tech feel thanks to the deep-black dial, silver luminescent hour markers and unidirectional rotating bezel in midnight-blue, matching the color of the crown tube. It is powered by a self-winding mechanical movement, the Tudor Caliber 2824. The watch is water resistant to 200 meters and is sold with both an adjustable black-and-blue fabric weave strap and with a choice of either a midnight-blue distressed leather strap or a stainless steel bracelet. We will bring you more about Tudor soon, stay tuned.
