Participating in Only Watch (during which 44 watches, each a unique piece, will auction for charity) for the first time, Tudor has created this unique Heritage Black Bay One. The piece reinterprets Tudor’s vintage Submariner reference 7923, one of the brand’s least known references from the 1950s. The only diver’s watch Tudor ever made with a hand-wound movement, it borrows design features from the original including a glossy black dial with gilt printing, gold baton hands, two lines of text including the depth rating, and patinated luminous hour markers. The depth rating printed in red, as well as the red triangle underlying the luminous dot on the bezel at 12 o’clock, are unique to this model. The watch has a 41mm stainless steel case, housing a self-winding Tudor caliber 2824 movement. The Heritage Black Bay One will include an aged brown leather strap and a grey, jacquard-weave fabric NATO-style strap.
Only Watch 2015 takes place November 7, 2015, with the watches to be sold going on a six city “world tour” starting on September 23rd.
