The Replica Tudor Heritage Black Bay “Dark” takes its configuration signals from the one of a kind piece that the brand made for the 2015 Only Watch closeout, which thusly was impacted (like all the Black Bay models, however this one by a wide margin the most vigorously) by a chronicled Tudor watch dearest by gatherers, the Tudor Submariner, Ref. 7922. Propelled in 1954, this model was the Tudor brand’s initially committed jumpers’ watch and was recognized by its arch formed dial and domed precious stone, two components resuscitated in the new Black Bay. A somewhat later reference of the Tudor Submariner (Ref. 7924), dispatched in 1958 and nicknamed “Huge Crown” by gatherers, likewise gives recorded motivation, particularly for the vast, screw-down winding crown, which is engraved with the best replica Tudor rose image and furnished with an anodized aluminum crown tube. The red triangle at 12 o’clock on the dark, unidirectional bezel is a component basic to vintage Tudor plunge watches of the late 1950s. At last, the Heritage Black Bay’s precise “snowflake” hour and moment hands follow their starting points to Tudor Submariner models sold from 1969 to the mid 1980s.
In spite of the various gestures to the model’s progenitors, the Tudor Heritage Black Bay “Dark” is by any standard a contemporary watch, with its 41-mm-width steel case with glossy silk brushed and cleaned completing, water-impervious to 200 meters, and its self-winding development, Tudor Caliber 2824 (taking into account the reliable ETA 2824) conveys a force store of 38 hours. What’s more, notwithstanding its undeniable lively advance, the watch offers a touch of extravagance also, with its rose-gold hands and hour markers.
To numerous fake watch fans, Tudor rose up out of the significant shadow of its huge sibling replica Rolex in 2013, when its vintage-roused jumpers’ watch, the Tudor Heritage Black Bay, won the “Recovery” prize at the prestigious Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. That model, with its dark dial and burgundy bezel, generated another rendition in 2014, with a bezel in dull blue (nicknamed by fans “Midnight Blue”). Presently the brand has reported a third variety, in which both the dial and bezel are dark.
