These are the first hands-on images of the unique Black Bay One that will be auctioned off in November for charity at Only Watch 2015. Tudor’s Heritage Black Bay One (Ref. 7923/001) is the result of a mixture of elements from across Tudor’s history, with the focus being on the 1954 Ref. 7923, the second Tudor Submariner.
A black gilt dial with a gold transferred minute track, Tudor Geneva logo, and the word “SHOCK-RESISTING” pay homage to the 7923. Gold-plated applied hour markers and stick shaped hands, are also reminiscent of the 7923.
The similarities continue with the black bezel insert with the red triangle at 12, however, like on previous Black Bay models, this design element is a nod to another reference, as opposed to just one. In this case, the red triangle comes from the original Tudor Submariner reference 7922, also from 1954.
One lucky winner will get the Black Bay One, which we first showed you HERE, in a special wooden box along with a steel bracelet, fabric strap and brown distressed leather strap.
