History Behind the Tudor Heritage Black Bay Collection

It all began in 1936 when Hans Wilsdorf officially acquired Tudor, previously known as Veuve de Philippe Hüther. Wilsdorf, known as the founder of Rolex, gained exclusive rights to the Swiss brand a decade prior to its acquisition. Since then, Tudor and Rolex have often been associated with each other and are referred to as sister companies. 

For Wilsdorf, Tudor was the key to reaching a wider variety of people. The idea was to produce more affordable watches that have the same durability, precision, and quality as Rolex. With the release of the Oyster Prince, shortly after the 2nd World War, the Swiss brand immediately gained the attention of people. This unprecedented popularity led to the launch of, what would be, one of the most iconic lines of dive watches today: the Tudor Black Bay (originally called the Prince Submariner). 

The first Heritage Black Bay, on the other hand, was only released fairly recently back in 2012. The concept behind this range is to create pieces that are modern-day interpretations of Black Bays in the past but with new and improved features. The watches aren’t exactly carbon copies of specific models, rather, they are collectively inspired by the essence of past Heritage Black Bays. Regardless, some elements remain the same such as the snowflake hands, hour markers in different shapes, distinct bezel, and impressive water resistance. 

5 Reasons to Buy a Tudor Heritage Black Bay Watch 

1. Renowned Series

The Heritage Black Bay is one of the most well-acclaimed models among Tudor’s extensive catalogue. With a line that dates back to the 1950s, it is no surprise why many watch connoisseurs and patrons speak highly of this collection. The retro designs from decades ago paired with improved, modern-day features make the Heritage Black Bay a favorite diver in the luxury watchmaking world. 

2. Variety of Options

Despite being relatively new, Tudor has released many versions of the Heritage Black Bay in the past couple of years. There are over 60 known variations of the said model listed on the market right now. These Heritage Black Bay timepieces differ in color, size, strap/bracelet, material, and function. You’ll surely find one that fits your personal preferences. 

3. Impressive In-House Movement

The original Black Bay was powered by the well-known, traditional ETA calibre. While that version boasted excellent precision and durability, Tudor decided it was time to debut their own in-house movement with the 2012 Heritage Black Bay. The watches in this collection are equipped with variations of the calibre MT5602. This movement boasts a COSC certification, a 70-hour power reserve, and a more durable calibre design.  

4. Good Investment

People typically assume that, since Tudor is a sister brand of Rolex, they probably have pretty similar resale value. While that may be true in some cases, Rolex still has stronger brand recognition. In Tudor’s case, only certain collections or models pass off as good investments. The Heritage Black Bay is an example of this. Aside from being one of the Swiss brand’s most popular lines, a good chunk of the Heritage Black Bay models are actually able to hold their value. Of course, this depends on certain factors such as economic fluctuations and rarity of the piece. But, ultimately speaking, getting your hands on a Heritage Black Bay would be considered a good choice, both financially and in terms of taste. 

5. Vintage-Inspired

One of the great things about the Heritage Black Bay is how it’s not exactly the rebirth of a certain model. Tudor was able to revive the essence of the original pieces by incorporating retro elements with contemporary features. With the Heritage Black Bay, the key components of old models were highlighted whilst being complemented by the new improvements. The Heritage Black Bay is truly a must-have for vintage enthusiasts out there. 

Tudor Heritage Black Bay: Where Past and Present Meet

It is no surprise why the Tudor Heritage Black Bay is so well-regarded by many people. It is a collection that has it all: rich heritage, sophisticated designs, superior quality, and excellent functions. Beyond its vintage-inspired style, the Heritage Black Bay is a reflection of Tudor’s tenacity when it comes to watchmaking. Being able to highlight retro features while utilizing contemporary elements is no easy feat, yet Tudor was able to do it perfectly with the Heritage Black Bay.
