Regular price $0.00

The history of the TUDOR divers’ watch dates back to 1954 and the launch of reference 7922. The first in a long line of ergonomic, legible, accurate and robust divers’ watches, it perfectly embodies the approach formulated by the American architect Louis Sullivan, according to whom the form of an object must follow its function. Furthermore, it laid down the aesthetic and technical foundations of an ideal divers’ watch, those of an understated, functional and reliable tool.

The sixty years that followed the launch of the original 7922 saw the constant improvement of the TUDOR divers’ watch and each model gained unanimous acclaim from professionals in the field, including some of the greatest military navies in the world.

This is a beauty Tudor Black Bay Watch. BLACK PVD-TREATED COATING

The characteristic features of the Black Bay Dark model centre on the 41 mm wide steel case, finished with a black PVD-treated coating.

Directly derived from the thin film technology originally developed by NASA for its various space programmes, PVD or “Physical Vapour Deposition” enables practically any inorganic material to be bonded with metals. The Black Bay Dark has an entirely satin finished matt finish, giving it the appearance of black military utility equipment. 

THE TUDOR MANUFACTURE CALIBRE MT5602

In 2015, TUDOR announced its first Manufacture Calibre in its history. 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 Black Bay Dark features the particularly prominent winding crown from the famous 7924 reference of 1958, aka the Big Crown, while its characteristic angular hands, known as snowflake, were borrowed from TUDOR watches used by the French National Navy in the 1970s.

This is a variant of the TUDOR Manufacture Calibre developed for the Black Bay model. It displays hours, minutes and seconds, and bears the reference MT5602, in which “MT” stands for “Manufacture TUDOR”.Please look at all the pictures, as they are part of the description. The watch is working and in great condition the previous owner barely wore it.  This a great Rolex Submariner like watch with the same company making it.  The condition of the watch is the same as it appears in the photos.  The watch is working.  Contact me if you have any questions first.
