We'd greatly appreciate if you'd purchase your next watch from us at Jaztime.com. Today, we'll be taking a look at the TUDOR Heritage Black Bay. This one, the 41 millimeter. Reference number 79230DK, the DK standing for dark. And that certainly is the case here because it's all covered, or coated rather, in a black PVD for all the steel portions and the aluminum, as well as the clasp. I'll be going over all the features of this launch, the case, the dial, the bezel, crown functions, the movement, the strap here, as well as the clasp. And I'll give you my thoughts on these throughout this video. So starting off with this case. We have 41 millimeters in diameter, that's from finger to thumb. The 41 millimeter diameter there from the two o'clock to eight o'clock position. Also the 10 to four position, same distance, same diameter, same 41 millimeters. You have a full PVD steel case with the satin brush finishing. A bit subtle, but it's certainly there. You can see it more in the light there, complete with my fingerprints, of course. Right. You also have a solid case back on the back there. And this one with the sticker still on there, although barely hanging on. We have, again, a full steel construction. You can see it on the nine o'clock side of this case a little bit better. You have the satin brush finishing. Very, very beautiful, albeit extremely subtle and that's due to the fact that it's all entirely dark and fully blackened from the PVD. Taking a look at the front of this case here. We do have an anodized black bezel, aluminum as well. Well, that's what it means. Anodized aluminum. Unidirectional rotating. So if you were to try to rotate this clockwise, it won't, it only goes counter-clockwise and that is so that you can maintain your timing properly by aligning the 12 o'clock position, the diving pearl there, with the minute hand properly. You have in your impromptu 60 minute timer, and the first 15 minutes being the most crucial. You can't accidentally over time yourself. You can only have a little bit of extra time, if you are measuring your decompression stops properly while diving. Although you probably won't be diving too deep with this, because this casing only allows for 200 meters or about 650, 660 feet below sea level water resistance. So you probably won't be diving too far down to warrant having to use this too many times, but certainly, the functionality is there should you so desire. Let me turn out the lights here so we can take a look at how it looks in the dark. And in the dark, very, very bright chroma light feature or not a chroma light, a Super-LumiNova feature with the seconds hand also illuminated. You have the full profile of that snowflake type hands for the hour end. Well, of course, the seconds sand as well, the lanced style, or not really lanced out, but sort of like a long, pencil shaped minute hand as well. And the diving pearl at the 12 o'clock keeps its luminescence just as nicely for the style. Let's turn the lights back on. Let's take a look at the dial proper. It has sort of like a black matte finish to it. So there's no sun ray patterning here. It's not made to look super radiant or anything. It's more subtlety as the name of the game here, because this is a completely black watch and just maintaining the readability, using the sort of maxi style dial that we have here. The stick markers for the three, six, and nine positions, triangle for the 12, dot markers for the rest. 18 carat white gold for the settings there, with the chroma or the Super-LumiNova on those, to make it so it doesn't tarnish over time and it just looks very easy to read and it certainly is easy to read and it looks very distinctive. Very evocative of the Rolex Submariner. Well, it's literally the sister watch from the sister company. Brother watch? Brother company? Sibling, we'll just say that. Now taking a look at the crown functions here. Rather simple, just simply unwind the crown at the three o'clock position. You have the Rolex or sorry, the TUDOR flower logo there on the crown, right. So simply at the base position, you can wind the launch here. If you're at a dead stop, about 20 to 30 full lines, will get you to the full power reserve. Once you start feeling the damping and the resistance is starting to ramp up, you can just stop because you've reached the full extent of the main spring barrel there as you're winding it. Pull the crown out to the next and all the other position stops that seconds hand, so you have the hacking function there. You can set the minute hand precisely where it needs to go, thanks to the very easy to read minute track at the peripheral of this dial. Once you've got it nicely lined up with an atomic clock, press the crown back in to start that seconds hand and screw in the crown back against the case nice and tight to maintain that 200 meter water resistance. So what makes all of this work? You can't see it through the case back, but you do have the made in-house and manufacturer caliber. Let me see, it's in my notes. I can't read it on the back of the case as easily. The MT5602. It's an in-house made TUDOR movement. Not very common to see fully in-house movement from TUDOR, but this is one of the few, which is regulated with a silicon balance spring. 28,800 vibrations per hour or four Hertz, 26 joules, right. And also features a full 70 hour of power reserve. So basically, that means you can set this down on a Friday evening, pick it back up Monday morning, ready to connect business and there's no need to wind the watch. You're good for three whole days after setting this watch down from a full power reserve, all right. And also, taking a look here at the framing of this watch. You have this nice black aged leather strap, as they call it. All black with the matching black stitching and black underneath, as you can see. Nice and comfortable as well. You have a couple of minder loops, one stationary, the second adjustable based on the strap there. And you also have the sort of like safety fold over clasp here. Also MPVD steel. PVD coated steel rather, with a sort of like that shield logo motif going on here. So you have the safety latch, lift that up, you have the shield, lift that to open it, and you have the full, again, PVD coated fold over clasp here. And you also have the pin system, which you can then use to size the watch on the fly, should you so desire. Feed it through and pierce wherever your wrist happens to be. I'll just size it right there for the sake of this video. And while I'm here, I'll try it on and give you my thoughts as to how it wears on my wrist. Seven inches in circumference. Now taking a look at how it all comes together. Let me zoom out a bit here so you can see it. This is how it looks disassembled, and you can just simply feed it through the minder loops and then clasp it shut, close the safety and that's how it works. All right, so on my wrist, seven inches in circumference. Again, zoomed all the way out. Pretty big because, well, 41 millimeters is kind of big for me personally. I prefer 36 millimeters, but actually this wears quite well and that's thanks to how the lug profiles work with the fact that this comes on a leather strap. The integrated lugs with like the steel bracelet sort of makes the bracelet fade into the case there and so it sort of blends in and becomes like a gigantic case. Whereas here, the leather strap actually makes itself known. It's very easy to see and quite comfortable actually, given that it has leather. Plenty of overhang for me because, well, it's kind of small. Well, rather my wrist is rather small for this watch, but you can still wear this watch even if your wrist is going down to even six inches in circumference even. So just about anyone can wear this, provided you have the wrist for it and certainly, most people do. And with this overall size, it actually does fit a little bit better than I thought it would. Just on paper, I wouldn't think so, but looking at it in practice, in person, much better in terms of the actual practice of wearing it. Incredibly easy to read, because nothing is easier to read than black with white and a little bit of red accents there to really give it a little tiny splash of color. And the fact that this is an anodized aluminum bezel, even though it is a little bit easier to scratch then say ceramic, it does maintain its readability regardless of the angle of light. And for practical purposes, that's actually the better option because when you have, say, specular lighting, like sort of what I do here with these bars of light here, it's much harder to see on a ceramic bezel, but with the way that the aluminum sort of disperses and spreads light out rather than just reflecting it directly makes it so that you can actually read the numerals and the markings on the bezel much more easily, regardless of your lighting situation. As long as you have light, it's incredibly good and very easy, much easier than a ceramic bezel. So those are all pluses for this TUDOR Black Bay Heritage. The 41 millimeters, the dark version.
