  • Catalogue Essay

    Taking its inspiration from historic masterpieces such as the firm’s coveted diver’s wristwatches from the 1950s, Tudor released the long awaited Heritage Black Bay in 2012 with extremely attractive features such as the iconic case construction of the original Black Bay, an array of bezel insert color options and a dial inspired from the past. Extremely well-received the Tudor Heritage Black Bay was awarded the Revival Prize at the GPHG 2013 (Grand Prix d’horlogerie de Genève).

    In 2016, the firm reintroduced the model via the Black Bay 58 featuring for the first time an in-house self-winding movement discontinuing its previous ref. 72290 powered by the reliable ETA-based cal. 2824-2. The introduction of the upgraded model was not only witnessed on the movement but also on the dial. Early examples of the Heritage Black Bay featured its iconic “Rose” logo above the signature as witnessed in the original Black Bay from the 1950s. Later examples featured Tudor’s “Shield” logo.

    The present example Tudor Heritage Black Bay ref. 72290R with a red bezel insert from circa 2013 belongs to the first generation featuring a “Rose” logo and an ETA-based movement. It is complete with its full set of accessories and preserved in very good overall condition.

  • Artist Biography


    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.
