TUDOR Heritage Black Bay With In-House Movement

Tudor Heritage Black Bay

Sixty years of TUDOR diving history distilled into one truly iconic watch.The Heritage Black Bay, presented for the first time in 2012 and honoured by the jury of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie in Geneva the following year, has been updated for 2016 with a mechanical movement manufactured by TUDOR. This is a variant of the movement manufactured by TUDOR and developed as an update to the Heritage Black Bay model.

It displays hours, minutes and seconds, and bears the reference MT5602, in which “MT” stands for “Manufacture TUDOR”. In 2015, TUDOR announced the first mechanical movement in its history to have been developed, manufactured and assembled in-house. A high-performance calibre of excellent precision and proven robustness, it offers a 70-hour power reserve meaning that its wearer can, for example, take off the watch on Friday evening and put it on again on Monday morning without having to wind it.

Beating to a frequency of 28,800 beats/hour or 4Hz, the movement is regulated by a variable inertia oscillator with silicon balance spring, held in place by a traversing bridge – a guarantee of its robustness. Furthermore, the movement is certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).
The Heritage Black Bay is available with a steel bracelet or an aged leather strap and folding clasp. The steel bracelet has been reworked taking inspiration from the brand’s riveted bracelets from the 50s and 60s.

These were famous for having rivet heads for attaching the links in evidence on the side of the bracelet, as well as a stepped construction.
The Heritage Black Bay is also supplied with an extra strap in matching fabric. A signature feature of TUDOR’s Heritage line, the strap is produced according to the traditional “Jacquard” technique mastered by a century-old family business located in the St-Etienne region of France.
