  • Catalogue Essay

    Echoing the ethos of the first Tudor diving watches, the modern Black Bay collection is an absolute classic amongst collectors today. It englobes all traits that are so much loved in Tudor vintage diving tool watches such as a domed crystal, a large winding crown, snowflake hands and a riveted bracelet.

    The present Black Bay model, however, is rather special. It sets itself apart from its peers as a limited production piece made specially for the oldest and most prestigious department store in London: Harrods.

    Taking over Harrods’ signature colour, the bezel, the tip of the seconds hand and the depth rating have been carefully coloured in an olive green hue. No detail has been left unattended - even the depth rating is now indicated feet first instead of the habitual meters; an homage to the Queen’s land. Furthermore, taking inspiration from its military past, Tudor engraved the case back of the watch with large Arabic numerals alongside the stylised letter “H” from the Harrods logo.

    Offered in excellent condition, the present watch is fitted with a steel bracelet as well as a complimentary black fabric strap; a signature feature of Tudor’s Heritage line.

  • Artist Biography

    Tudor

    Swiss • 1926

    Almost twenty years after Rolex was founded, Hans Wilsdorf established Tudor with the intention of making more affordable watches without compromising the quality for which Rolex was renowned. Tudor was named after the British Dynasty that ruled England from 1485 to 1603, and their symbol came from the "War of Roses." After interchanging Rose and Shield symbols for a number of years, the firm replaced the Rose with the Shield logo from the 1960s until today.

    Some of the most recognized vintage models made by Tudor include the Submariner, a waterproof model first introduced in 1954, the Oysterdate, the earliest versions of which were nicknamed the "Monte-Carlo," the Heritage, which included the date at 6 o'clock, as well as the Pelagos, which translates to "deep sea" in Greek.
