The Tudor at BaselWorld You Probably Didn't Hear About

The Tudor Heritage Black Bay 36 mm -

While all of the other folks are gushing about the other, bigger Black Bays (Bronze and Dark) this year, this "little" 36 mm is the one that caught my attention.

While I might be the only one in the crowd who was drawn to this little bijoux, my devotion remains unshakable.  There is a reason why thousands of vintage Rolex and Tudor fans scour the Internet in search of watches JUST LIKE THIS ONE!  And Tudor is wise enough, and brave enough to make a 36 mm watch for men.  

Now I realize that all of the "big swinging dicks" out there say 42 mm or bust, but myself I don't have the same anxieties about size and the need to compensate... but hey, that's just me ; )

So here are the pertinents -

  • CASE
    Steel, 36 mm, polished and satin finish
    Smooth steel bezel, polished finish
    Self-winding mechanical movement, TUDOR calibre 2824
    Approximately 38 hours
    Screw-down steel winding crown adorned with an engraved TUDOR rose in relief, with black anodized 
    aluminum tube

    • DIAL
      Flat sapphire crystal
      Waterproof to 150 m (500 ft)
      Steel bracelet or aged leather strap with folding clasp and safety catch

      Additional camouflage fabric strap with buckle included in the box
