First Look – Tudor Heritage Black Bay 41 ref. 79540 (Hands-On with Price)

Last year, Tudor Watch amazed us (and I mean an exceptionally wonderful shock) with a little, excessively spotless and appropriately rich watch: the Black Bay 36 . We audited it, even our vintage fellow tried it … and we adored it. This year, this equivalent staggering look, perfect and motivated, comes back in a more manly breadth. Meet the Tudor Heritage Black Bay 41 ref. 79540, same yet different.

Basically, this Tudor Heritage Black Bay 41 ref. 79540 takes the formula of last year’s 36mm and adjusts it in the traditional manly Tudor case, which means 41mm. This watch has a marginally unexpected insight regarding comparison to the typical Black Bay. The absence of the turning bezel really sets the watch in an alternate classification. No more apparatus, not yet dress watch… it is the perfect definition of an easygoing, exquisite games watch. No futile highlights, simply the fundamental, however yet an extraordinary presence on the wrist, effectively in 36mm. This year, the expanded size carries the idea to men.

With this Tudor Heritage Black Bay 41 ref. 79540, we have fundamentally the look and feel of the Black Bay, still with an alternate taste. While the hands and lists are equivalent to the jumper models, which means the combination of spots, rod and triangle, combined with the famous snowflake hands, the dial is extraordinary. As a matter of first importance, it is level. At that point, primary change: it is reflexive, implying that the watch acts absolutely contrastingly in the light: it sparkles, it reflects light, it plays with reflections… It has an alternate vibe on the wrist, as a result of this gleaming tone. More rich, a touch more noticeable, more adjusted to an easygoing stylish attire.

Now, there’s the case. The level and cleaned bezel likewise changes the view of the watch, the extents and the manner in which it wears, as the watch feels less compact – the breadth of the dial is bigger than an old style Black Bay Diver. This makes the Tudor Heritage Black Bay 41 ref. 79540 more downplayed. At that point, in light of the shortfall of turning bezel and the marginally diminished water opposition (150m versus 200m), the watch is slimmer, which befits the idea driving this watch.

The trust the jury to decide wisely in this Tudor Heritage Black Bay 41 ref. 79540 remains indistinguishable from the remainder of the assortment, with sublime subtleties (cleaned inclines on the hauls, cleaned and brushed surfaces, larger than average crown) and generally noteworthy development quality.

Inside the case, no production development yet old fashioned 2824-based type. This is disclosed by a wish to keep this watch, wether 36mm or 41mm, as a entry-level offer in the Black Bay assortment.
