Ladies and gentlemen, Phillips Watches is proud to host the Only Watch 2015 charity auction to be held in Geneva on 7 November 2015. Beginning today, we will be sharing the 43 unique timepieces created by 43 participating brands united for research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
Participating in Only Watch for the first time, Tudor has created this unique Heritage Black Bay One that will no doubt excite Tudor and vintage sport watch aficionados around the world. The Black Bay One reinterprets Tudor's vintage Submariner reference 7923, one of the brand’s least known references from the 1950s.
The only diver’s watch Tudor ever made with a hand-wound movement, it borrows the original’s aesthetic codes including a glossy black dial with gilt printing, gold baton hands, two lines of text including the depth rating - printed in red on this unique watch, and patinated luminous hour markers. The contemporary-sized, 41 mm case houses a self-winding Tudor caliber 2824 movement, and retains the accentuated bevels and chamfers found on the lugs of the original. A prominent and large screw-down crown adorned with the Tudor rose, domed sapphire crystal, and stainless steel bracelet with historic, tube-type attachments complete the mid-20th century inspired design.
