The Tudor Black Bay: One Model, Many Faces

Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf launched Tudor in 1926 as a more affordable alternative to the original luxury giant. From the very beginning, Tudor watches have been known and loved for their uncompromising quality and links to the military. Tudor timepieces resemble their Rolex siblings – the Submariner, Datejust, and more – in both name and looks. Nonetheless, Tudor has managed to distinguish itself and build its own fan base, as proven by the high prices vintage Tudor “Snowflake” Submariners bring in at auctions. But what does the current line-up look like? After a few quieter decades, Tudor burst back onto the scene in 2012 with the Tudor Heritage Black Bay line. This watch is the driving force behind the Genevan brand’s current success. The Black Bay isn’t just some insider’s tip, either; it’s even managed to convert a few Rolex and Omega diehards. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the Fifty-Eight is so hard to come by!

In this video, we’ll be taking a closer look at a few different Heritage Black Bay versions and highlight the small details that set some references apart.
