Tudor Heritage Black Bay One 7923/001

Tudor Surprise : Tudor Heritage Black Bay One (Update : new pictures)

by Guillaume V - 31/08/2015

A new Tudor Heritage Black Bay has been out for a couple of days, and it’s already getting watch enthusiasts really excited. But many will be disappointed to learn that only a single copy of the mythical Tudor Submariner 7923 will be remanufactured...

This single copy will be made for the Only Watch 2015 charity sale organised by Philips Watches – for which 43 brands accepted to manufacture one,  unique product. Tudor, the sister brand of Rolex, is participating for the first time. For the occasion, they reinterpreted one their most sought after models: the Tudor Submariner 7923 unveiled in 1954.

This watch will be sold on November 7, 2015 in Geneva, and it has the same exact look as its older counterpart: black bezel, satin black dial, gold numerals, gold, baton hands, steel strap with tube attachment... Its design is definitely faithful to the original timepiece!
The movement is the only piece which will vary significantly: the 7923/001 features a 2824 automatic caliber, whereas the 7923 model from the 50’s features a manual winding movement. This piece of news might have been even more exciting if the new items had featured the MT5621 manufacture caliber presented a t Baselworld 2015... But you can’t always get what you want, right?

But could the 7923/001, following the Red and Blue models, hint at an upcoming new version of the Black Bay? For the fans, that’s the million dollar question. Now, even if this timepiece shows that Tudor listens to its aficionados, it seems unlikely that a watch identical to this unique model will be produced. However, it remains possible to see a timepiece mixing the codes of the
current 79220 and of this 7923/001 at Baselworld 2016.

Until then, there’s Only Watch 2015 during which the model featured in this article will surely make its future owner very happy. Plus, the money goes to a good cause: the profits of the Only Watch 2015 event will go to the Monaco Association Against Muscular Dystrophy.
