TUDOR HERITAGE BLACK BAY BRONZE WINNER AT THE 2016 GRAND PRIX D’HORLOGERIE DE GENÈVE

TUDOR HERITAGE BLACK BAY BRONZE WINNER AT THE 2016 GRAND PRIX D’HORLOGERIE DE GENÈVE

TUDOR’s vintage inspired bronze diving watch wins the “Petite Aiguille” Prize at the 2016 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. This prize is the third award TUDOR receives in four years participating in the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.

The Heritage Black Bay Bronze is a tribute to the long standing relationship between TUDOR and some of the largest navies in the world - including the French and the US Navy - which all extensively made use of TUDOR diving watches over the years.

The design features of the Heritage Black Bay Bronze have been drawn from TUDOR’s history. It inherits the general lines, as well as the domed dial and crystal, from the very rst TUDOR diving watches. It features the prominent winding seen on the famous 7924 reference of 1958, known as Big Crown. It also borrows the characteristic angular hands, known as snowflake, from the watches delivered to the French Navy in the 1970s.

The characteristic element of the Heritage Black Bay Bronze is an imposing bronze case, 43 mm in diameter, which is an aesthetic reference to the use of bronze in historic ships and other diving equipment. The choice of this metal, a high-performance aluminium bronze alloy, guarantees the development of a subtle and unique patina to match its user's habits.

The Heritage Black Bay Bronze is powered by TUDOR manufacture calibre MT5601. It features hour, minute and second functions and is certified by COSC, the independent Swiss precision testing institute. Its other notable features include a “weekend proof” 70-hour power reserve as well as an antimagnetic, high precision silicon balance spring.
