BRAND EXCLUSIVE: INTRODUCING THE LATEST TUDOR HERITAGE BLACK BAY MEN’S WATCH – BLACK
Undoubtedly one of the most highly anticipated watch releases of the year, Tudor have unveiled their latest timepiece to join the Tudor Heritage Black Bay collection. Originally released in 2012, the luxury watch brand introduced the Black Bay diver’s watches in shades of Blue and Burgundy – met with overwhelming popularity, the collection has become a cult classic within the watch world; even going on to win the Grand Prix d-Horlogerie de Genève in 2013.
Earlier this year, Tudor created an exclusive one-off timepiece, the ‘Black Bay One’ which will be available to purchase at auction* this November. Tudor enthusiasts will be excited to know that after marvelling at the Black Bay One’s sophisticated beauty, the brand have gone back to their roots and released the Black Bay diver’s watch in a classic Black. Complete with a black bezel with red triangle, the definitive snowflake hands and large winding crown, the 41mm Black Bay Black will integrate seamlessly into the collection with the previous models and collectively represent over 60 years of diving history.
*Update: The watch auction held in Geneva produced some truly extraordinary results, including the highest price ever paid for a wristwatch. No one expected the timepiece to have quite the effect it did, though images of the wristwatch had been well received over social media. Selling at nearly 108 times that of it’s estimated value, Tudor’s Black Bay One fetched the price of CHF 375,000 (£247,776).
Not only breaking conventions in terms of innovative design, Tudor have taken pioneering steps by launching this timepiece outside of the traditional Baselworld cycle – ultimately adding to the overall prestige of the Black Bay Black itself.
The exclusive Tudor watch will be available to purchase on a steel bracelet with the leather strap version joining the collection in November*. In terms of style, the Black Bay Black is a sleek, sophisticated timepiece that demands to be worn with a certain panache, that’s synonymous with the modern gentleman. There’s no doubt that the watch will look at home on the wrist of any male and will effortlessly transition between day and occasion wear – injecting a touch of contemporary yet classic style that’ll be the perfect finishing touch to any apparel.
*Update: The Tudor Black Bay Black is now available to order in store at Wakefields for £2330 – a fraction of the predecessor’s auction price. If you’d like to register your interest in this definitive timepiece, simply pop in store or call us to organise a pre-order, so that you can add the iconic Tudor Black Bay Black timepiece to your horological collection.
