OK now you have the two bases: the vintage watch that propelled this unique version and the advanced watch on which the changes are executed. Regardless of whether very close from the start glance from the normal Black Bay, the Black Bay One Ref. 7923/001 games numerous unique subtleties that makes it indeed very extraordinary and alluring – obviously, it stays a BB, which means a watch that has a 1950s/1960s look and that pretty much takes after a Submariner (regardless of whether from Tudor or Rolex) however the inclination in the tissue is somewhat unique here. Here are the differences:
[bctt tweet=”The Black Bay One Ref. 7923/001 games numerous unique subtleties that makes it truth be told extraordinary and ultra-desirable”]
- The bezel
Like its old kin, the unique Tudor heritage Black Bay One Ref. 7923/001 comes with a completely black bezel (rather than the blue or burgundy embed, which by the manner in which looks very close from the Black Bay we’ve envisioned in 2014 … simply saying). On the off chance that you look carefully, you’ll see that the marker at 12 is additionally extraordinary. The iridescent spot is still set up yet it’s now encompassed by a red triangle (something that isn’t suggestive of the Tudor Submariner 7923 however from the early Rolex Submariner). At long last, the 15-minute scale printed on the addition somewhere in the range of 0 and 15 is now away – once more, for a more vintage look.
- The dial
The dial of the Black Bay One Ref. 7923/001 depends on the burgundy release of the Black Bay , implying that it highlights plated engravings (the Logo, the name of the brand and the moment track) and iridescent applied records encompassed with gold. This is suggestive of the old 7923 with its gilt dial. Obviously, the records are not painted straightforwardly on the dial yet the likeness is striking. Another detail to spot is the engraving at 6. Rather than “Rotor” and an arcuate “Self-winding“, the dial presently includes an overlaid “Shock-Resisting” engraving, again a similitude with the 7923. At long last, the profundity is currently written in red – something that could be found on some old Submariners . Hold up for a second, there is something else: a lustrous dial (rather than the matt grained dial of the normal Black Bay ) and this is an exceptionally cool element (not the most intelligible, because of reflections, but rather still a generally excellent looking one).
- The hands
Usually, the Black Bay features the notorious “Snow Flakes” hands, that could be found for instance on the uncommon and exceptionally sought-after Tudor Submariner gave for the Marine Nationale (the French Navy). This Tudor Heritage Black Bay One again draws its motivation in the vintage Ref. 7923 with old style rod hands with pointed tips – and still the plated look, as they are made in rose gold. The second hand is additionally unique, as it get frees of the squared marker for a round tip.
Itself, the case is absolutely like the traditional Black Bay, which means a 41mm square of treated steel with cleaned surfaces on the sides, chamfered points and silk finish on the highest point of the carries. Inside still ticks a dependable and strong ETA 2824 (somewhat altered however). The only contrast is the supplement around the crown that is, as in all other editions of the BB, coordinating the shade of the bezel (implying that it’s here black).
The wristband is extraordinary be that as it may, with an absence of the end-joins between the hauls. As in the vintage Submariner 7923, it includes a wristband with open spring bars – that is really the very arm band that can be found on the Tudor Ranger . The case will likewise incorporate two different ties: a dim texture lash and a matured cowhide NATO.
Taken all alone, all these little subtleties may look insignificant yet the outcome is an amazing Black Bay that appears to be unique from the old style releases. It’s a watch that we couldn’t want anything more than to find in the regular collection but this isn’t going to happen soon (and it will presumably never occur). For the price… you’ll need to go to the Only Watch closeout and set up a genuine financial plan. More subtleties on TudorWatch.com , OnlyWatch.com and PhillipsWatches.com .
