TUDOR’s Black Bay Chrono wins the “Petite Aiguille” Prize at the 2017 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.
This prize is the fourth award TUDOR receives in five years participating and the second “Petite Aiguille” Prize in a row.
Since the presentation in 1970 of the Prince Oysterdate Chronograph, its first chronograph, TUDOR has always produced watches that are closely tied to the world of motorsports. In the same way, since 1954 TUDOR has been constantly improving its professional divers’ watches.
In 2017, the Heritage Black Bay Chrono model dared to combine this aquatic heritage represented by the Black Bay family with the queen function on the racetrack, the chronograph. Remaining faithful to the Black Bay aesthetic with the famous snowflake hands –a brand signature since 1969– the Heritage Black Bay Chrono model offers optimum readability in a 41-millimetre diameter steel chronograph case complete with engraved tachymetric scale.
The Heritage Black Bay Chrono is powered by the high-performance Manufacture chronograph Calibre MT5813 complete with a 70-hour power reserve, a silicon balance spring and a certification by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute. Crafted in the purest watchmaking tradition, with column wheel mechanism and vertical clutch it remains in keeping with the TUDOR philosophy of quality.
