TUDOR Heritage Black Bay 36 AKA Baby BLACK BAY

Aww, this has to be the cutest watch I’ve posted; it’s the new Baby BLACK BAY which Tudor hope will bring their Heritage Black Bay to a wider audience specifically to those with a slimmer wrists!

The Heritage Black Bay 36 retains the same vintage lines of the Black Bay family of divers while simply reducing its proportions.

With its 36mm diameter, the steel case is particularly versatile. It acts both as an introduction to the Black Bay for smaller wrist sizes or as a more formal option for those who might want something even dressier than the Heritage Black Bay already is.

Like other models in the Black Bay family, the Black Bay 36 features shiny black dial is inspired by the TUDOR dive watches that were produced during the 1950s. It also borrows their iconic angular Snowflake hands that appeared in the Tudor’s 1969 catalogue.

A fixed smooth steel bezel replaces the rotational divers bezel. Water-resistance is respectable 150 meters.

The Heritage Black Bay 36 comes with a choice of a steel bracelet or a lightly distressed beige-colored leather strap with a steel folding clasp, each Heritage Black Bay 36 is also supplied with an additional strap in urban camouflage fabric.

Made in the Jacquard technique according to traditional methods by a hundred-year-old family business from the St-Etienne region of France, this strap is a signature feature of TUDOR’s Heritage line.

So what do you think – is 36mm an acceptable size for a man’s wrist or would this better suited on a boy’s or ladies’ wrist?

Prices are from 2400CHF.
