Tudor Black Bay 79220R

Tudor Black Bay 79220R

The Tudor Black Bay was first launched in accordance with the Tudor brand’s relaunch. The Tudor brand was relaunched in 2009, but it was in 2011 that the Tudor Heritage Black Bay was finally launched, which were a reinterpretation of the early Tudor Submariner models, thus paying tribute to Tudor’s early heritage. The Heritage Black Bay watches were instant successes, carrying design features that tied back to its heritage, and which people, especially watch collectors an enthusiasts loved. The Tudor Heritage Black Bay was launched in three colors: black, red, blue.

The Red Tudor Black Bay features gold text on the dial, also known as Gilt, just like the predecessors that the Black Bay range paid tribute to did. The Black Bay 79220R features a Swiss ETA movement, and In 2013, the Heritage Black Bay won the “Revival” Prize at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. The striking red color of the 79220R derives from the early Submariner models which the Black Bay pays tribute to since early models had a similar red color.

It’s easy to believe that with Tudor’s new introduction of an updated version of the Black Bay, featuring an in-house movement, the demand for the earlier ETA versions would decrease, however, it’s actually the opposite, as collectors see the Black Bay ETA as more attractive – partly because the case is thinner on the 79220 models.
