    - The present Tudor Black Bay was specially made for one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious department stores, London’s Harrods. It uses Harrods' signature green color, which is applied not only to the bezel but also to the tip of the seconds hand and the depth rating. No detail being left unattended even the depth rating is indicated feet first instead of the habitual meters. The H for Harrods is engraved on the caseback.

    - It comes with a Tudor fitted box, outer packaging, Guarantee and product literature.

    - Bought in August 2020, it is preserved in barely worn condition.

  • 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.
