Registered in 1926 at the request of Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex, Tudor is a Swiss manufacturer of high-quality wrist watches based in Geneva. Over time, Tudor became especially well-known for producing watches for professional divers and the military. Between the 1960s and 1980s, several naval forces issued Tudor Submariners to their divers. These include the US Navy to its elite SEALs, and the French to their famous Marine Nationale (French Navy).
The Heritage Black Bay is motivated from a cooperation with Breitling while drawing deeply from Tudor watches‘ history. It had been the very first Tudor chronograph.
Praised by most in the sector as a bold move, the Heritage Black Bay managed to combine elements of vintage diver chronograph watches into a harmonious symphony that exceeded consumer and engineering experience expectations.
This masterpiece kept all of the technological properties of Tudor watches’ signature chronograph inside with an intriguing twist of Breitling’s mechanisms.
