Today we bring you another piece unique watch that will be auctioned off at Only Watch. For the first time Tudor will be participating and their watch, has already created a buzz on the internet. Introducing the Only Watch 2015: Tudor Black Bay One Reference 7923/001.
Tudor has received rave reviews for creating new models based on design elements of old Tudor timepieces. The Tudor Black Bay One Reference 7923/001 is based on the vintage Tudor Submariner reference 7923, a relatively unknown model from the 1950’s. It was only diver’s watch Tudor ever made with a hand-wound movement.
The Tudor Black Bay One Reference 7923/001 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.
We love the use of red for the bezel maker and the depth rating. The watch really does look very good! Even though it is not a 100% the original, this is another home run by Tudor.
This watch will surely have bidders from all over the world, vying to have the winning bid!
