Ticking Time: Tudor Launches New Heritage Black Bay at Baselworld 2017
Fresh out of Baselworld 2017, your new favorite watch is here: The Tudor Heritage Black Bay is now available in a sturdy all-steel iteration — watch lovers, rejoice and be on the lookout for this handsome, essential and seriously stylish timepiece.
It’s tough to understate the need for every guy to own a versatile, durable stainless steel watch — and certainly, Tudor agrees. The newest version of the Tudor Heritage Black Bay inserts the bezel in brushed steel and adds a date function to the lauded Black Bay model for the first time. The rotating bezel, meanwhile, uses satin brushing for a sleek matte effect. What does this mean for us everyday watch wearers? It means you get a superb combination of durability, quality and stunning good looks.
Another handy touch? The 70-hour power reserve — AKA, more than enough time to wear this stellar watch all weekend without any worries about losing track of time.Whether that means you’re dressing for spring travel or merely looking for a durable, handsome and versatile watch to wear on a spring bar crawl, the new Tudor Heritage Black Bay has you covered.
And if you’re not sold on the stainless steel bracelet, the timepiece also comes with khaki green fabric strap, a hallmark of the Tudor line — so, you’re getting two incredibly good-looking watches for the price of one. Be sure not to sleep on the aged black leather strap option, either. Know that the NATO strap option works everywhere from the bar to the office on a casual Friday, while the aged leather strap iteration makes for a watch that’s a walking heirloom of sorts — it’s that special.
Crucially, you’re also getting a healthy dose of the brand’s lauded heritage — from watches worn by the French navy to present-day adventurers and globetrotters, the Heritage Black Bay is worth applauding. The brand says that the update is an “emblematic model celebrating 60 years of Tudor divers’ watches,” with a focus on both understated style and functionality — plus form, of course. Given the company’s penchant for creating handsome timepieces that last and last, it’s very likely you’ll still have this watch in another 60 years.
