Tudor Black Bay 36 on Leather Strap Reference 79500
Current watchmaking trends favor case sizes upwards of 40mm, but larger watches aren’t suited for every wrist. Tudor introduced the Heritage Black Bay 36 at Baselworld 2016 to offer the sporty style of their popular Heritage line in a more universal size. This model combines historical and contemporary elements in its design and execution.
The 36mm stainless steel case features a satin finish with a polished bezel. It is equipped with a calibre 2824 self-winding mechanical movement manufactured in-house by Tudor. The power reserve is approximately 38 hours. A screw-down steel winding crown engraved with the Tudor rose seals the case to offer a depth rating of 150 meters.
The black dial is offset by luminescent hour markers and Tudor’s classic snowflake hour hand, introduced in 1969. This model comes on either a steel bracelet or an aged leather strap, shown above. It has a folding clasp with a safety catch as well. An additional camouflage fabric strap with buckle is also included with purchase.
The suggested retail price for the Heritage Black Bay 36 is 2,400 Swiss francs. For more information on this wristwatch model, visit Tudor’s official website at tudorwatch.com. We will be adding a line of Swiss made vulcanized rubber straps for Tudor watches to our e-Boutique coming soon. Click here to be notified of availability.
Tudor Heritage Advisor Reference 79620TC
A Tudor classic reimagined for the modern wristwatch enthusiast, the Tudor Heritage Advisor Reference 79620TC retains its classic aesthetic with a 42mm titanium case. Its cognac dial features dauphine hands, a red alarm hand and beveled markers. The date is indicated on a sub-dial at 6 o’clock, the power reserve indicator for the alarm is displayed at 3 o’clock and the alarm’s on/off indicator is displayed through an aperture at 9 o’clock.
A pusher at 8 o’clock engages the on/off switch of the alarm while the winding crown at 2 o’clock sets the alarm time. The winding crown at 4 o’clock features the Tudor rose engraved on it and is used to set the time and date. This model is available with either a steel bracelet or the cognac colored alligator leather strap shown above. Both options come with an additional black silk strap edged in satin.
The Tudor Heritage Advisor has a power reserve of 42 hours and a depth rating of 100 meters. The models from the Heritage line combine elements of their historic watches with a modern twist. The case of this model was increased from 34mm to 42mm to satisfy the modern desire for large wristwatches. However, it still retains classical design elements like the dauphine hands and red alarm hand.
