In the 1920’s Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf set out to create a watch that could be sold at a lower price point than Rolex, yet one what would retain the same dependability for which Rolex was known. 100 years later, Tudor continues to make reliable and practical watches that utilize a similar design language to Rolex, yet are a bit easier on the wallet.
Featuring a column wheel chronograph movement and 200 meters of water resistance, the Black Bay reference M79350 makes for a great go-anywhere, do-anything watch. It features a 41 mm stainless steel case, a domed sapphire crystal, and Tudor’s iconic “Snowflake” hands, which help add a bit of vintage flavor to the piece. While its aesthetic is heritage-inspired, its functionality is anything but old fashioned. Under the hood is Tudor’s MT5813 movement, which is based on Breitling’s caliber B01 – an impressive in house movement that is COSC certified and features a power reserve of 70 hours.
This example of the Black Bay Chronograph is in excellent pre-owned condition. It has minimal wear throughout, and appears to have been worn very sparingly. It is sold as a complete set with its original box and papers. Its bracelet will fit wrists up to 7.25″ in circumference.
