TUDOR presents the aesthetic codes of its emblematic Heritage Black Bay on a model with a 41-millimetre diameter, a slimmer middle case and fixed bezel in polished steel. Elegant and sporty at the same time, it captures the essence of Black Bay in a formal version.
For its Heritage Black Bay 41 model, TUDOR has retained the overall shape of the watches in the Black Bay family, reworking them for a more formal look that is both elegant and sporty.
In particular, the middle case has been redesigned and slimmed down to allow it to slip under a shirt cuff more easily. In the same spirit, the choice of a flat sapphire crystal—for the rest of the Black Bay family it is domed—flush with the fixed bezel in polished steel creates a minimalist effect.
Like other models in the Black Bay family, Black Bay 41 features a dial inspired by the TUDOR divers’ watches produced during the 1950s in an elegant black lacquered version. It adopts the characteristic angular hands known to collectors as snowflake, that appeared in the brand’s 1969 catalogue. Finally, the large winding crown, characteristic of the first generation of TUDOR divers’ watches waterproof to 200 metres (660 ft), is also adopted in this new model.
With the choice of a steel
bracelet or a brown leather
strap with steel folding clasp,
each Heritage Black Bay 41 is
also supplied with an additional
strap in urban camouflage
fabric. Made using the Jacquard
technique, a traditional method achieved by a 150-year-old family firm from the Saint-Étienne region of France, this strap is a signature feature of TUDOR’s Heritage line.
The Tudor Black Bay 41 is $3,500 on stainless steel bracelet or $3,150 on fine calf leather strap and is available at all our boutiques now.
