TUDOR’s Black Bay Chrono won the “Petite Aiguille” award in the 2017 edition of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. This is the fourth distinction that TUDOR receives in five years of participation and the second prize “Petite Aiguille” consecutive.
Since the introduction in 1970 of the Prince Oysterdate Chronograph, its first chronograph, which TUDOR produces watches with a strong connection to the world of motoring. Likewise, since 1954 TUDOR has been steadily improving its professional diving clocks.
In 2017, the Heritage Black Bay Chrono model dared to combine this aquatic heritage, represented by the Black Bay family, with the most important function in race tracks: the chronograph. Staying true to the aesthetic Black Bay, with the famous snowflake hands – a signature of the brand since 1969 – the Heritage Black Bay Chrono model offers an excellent read in a box with a diameter of 41 millimeters and engraved tachymeter scale.
The Heritage Black Bay Chrono is enhanced by the high-performance chronograph manufactured by Caliber MT5813, completed with a 70-hour power reserve, a silicone spiral and certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute. Manufactured with the purest tradition of watchmaking, column wheel system and vertical clutch, in accordance with the TUDOR quality philosophy.
