Tudor Heritage Black Bay Chrono
At Baselworld 2017, the famous Heritage Black Bay family welcomes a new model, its first chronograph powered by the Manufacture Calibre MT5813, column wheel and vertical clutch.
Column Wheel And Vertical Clutch
Since the presentation in 1970 of the Prince Oysterdate Chronograph, its first chronograph, TUDOR has always produced watches that are closely tied to the world of motorsports. In the same way, since 1954 TUDOR has been constantly improving its professional divers’ watches. The new hybrid Heritage Black Bay Chrono chronograph dares to combine the aquatic heritage represented by the Black Bay family with the queen of the racetrack, the chronograph.
Engraved Tachymetric Scale
Remaining Faithful To The Black Bay Aesthetic With The Famous Snowflake Hands –A Brand Signature Since 1969– The Heritage Black Bay Chrono Model Offers Optimum Readability Against The Domed Matt Black Dial.
Its sub-counters are hollowed for optimum contrast and a date aperture is positioned at 6 o’clock. The recognisable characteristics of the Black Bay are preserved in a steel case with a 41-millimetre diameter, fitted with pushers inspired by the first generation of TUDOR chronographs. A fixed bezel in circular satin-brushed steel with engraved tachymetric scale completes this sporty new chronograph.
The Manufacture Chronograph calibre Mt5813
Boasting a 70-hour power reserve, a silicon balance spring and certification by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute, the Manufacturechronograph Calibre MT5813 that drives the Heritage Black Bay Chrono model is a high-performance movement. Crafted in the purest watchmaking tradition, it features a column wheel mechanism and vertical clutch. In keeping with the TUDOR philosophy of quality, it presents extraordinary robustness and reliability, guaranteed by an array of extreme tests applied to all TUDOR products.
