Hey guys, this is Kenneth from JazTime.com and today we'll be reviewing the Tudor Heritage Black Bay. It has a reference number of 79230N. This is a second generation of Tudor's recently, uh, shown at the Baselworld 2016 alongside the new Black Bays as well. Specifically for this one, like I said, the reference number for this one is 79230N. We'll be going over the price, the dial, the bezel, the case, the crown and the bracelet, and we'll talk about the movement towards the end. The price as of December 2016, the retail price for this Tudor is $3675. At JazTime you can get it for as low as $2830. Let's go ahead and talk about the dial. The most notable differences from the second generation from the first generation of these Heritage Black Bays is that, at the very top, we have the Tudor name but it has the emblem of shield now. It used to be a rose emblem. At the bottom, the text at the six o'clock position is now perfectly straight. It used to be a curved text at the six o'clock position. I believe the reason for that is that they're trying to give the watch a much more modern look as it does kinda look like, you know, just about any other watch in terms of the text and such. One thing to note is we have the snowflake hands on a Tudor still, which is characterized by its large, angular hands. We have that nice bronze coloring on that text, on all around the outer edge of the dial. The index markers are nice and big. Really readable. As you can see, they go all around. It does have luminosity for up to eight hours. One other thing I wanted to mention is the sapphire crystal. The sapphire crystal that protects the dial is also a dome crystal, as you can see there. It protrudes a little bit past the bezel and it doesn't sit quite flat. That's another neat thing there. Let's go ahead and move on to the bezel now. For the bezel, we have a matte black anodized aluminum bezel. As you can see it makes it, uh, it kinda dulls the light a little bit, but that little bit of dullness gives it a nice, flat shine overall. It's just very, very nice. We have a 60 minute, uh, graduater all around and this is a diver sports diver's watch, so this is mainly, uh, this function of the bezel, it is unidirectional. It can only turn in one direction. As you can see there, as I try to turn to the right, it won't. Only to the left will it work. All you have to do is, for this specific function of the bezel, is to track elapsed time. I've already matched the patina to the hour hand. The patina's this little dot, and all you have to do is match the patina to, I apologize, not the hour hand, so just match it to the minute hand. There we go. So, we match it to the minute hand to track for elapsed time. Let's just say, if you're a diver, you're diving underwater and you want to track how long you've been gone underwater. You would see the minute hand move for however long, of course, 10 minutes being 10. Our 10 down here being 10 minutes, 20 being 20. Each of the large indicators being five minute increments. You can see how long you've been gone underwater. But if you're not a diver, for every day use you can track such things as running a lap or how long it takes for you to run a mile or even if you're at the office, you can see, you know, how long you're taking one meeting or how long you've been taking on phone calls, and that's very simple, easy to track. I'm gonna go ahead and reset that back to the total clock position. There we go. Let's go ahead and move on to the case now. The case size of this Tudor still keeps the same case size as the older generation. It's a 41 millimeter case. That's from my index finger here to my thumb. That's the diameter of 41 millimeters. It is a steel case with the side profile not being too large. It should still fit under suit cuffs very nicely, dress cuffs very nicely as well. Shouldn't stretch anything out. Additionally, we have this nice hiposh. It goes along the side. Gives it a very nice shine. Same could be said about the other side of the Tudor. Very nice high quality shine. Since we're already here, let's go ahead and review the crown. One thing I like to mention is that they did keep the rose engraving as you can see there on the crown itself characterized by the large crown. I believe they reference it as just simply the big crown. We have this rose engraving that used to be on the dial but got replaced by the shield emblem. It's a very simple screw down crown. All you have to do is just go counterclockwise and there you go. Pops out to the standard position. This is the hand winding position, meaning that you can wind the watch up to 20 to 30 times. No more, because you might damage the internals of the watch if you do. So, just do a few quick turns 20 to 30 times and it's all set to go. You'll also be able to tug out the crown for one last tick, and this'll be the hand setting position. Obviously self explanatory. By directional moving hands, and you can set the time however you'd like. Always make sure the crown is nice and tight against the case. Push it down, screw it back in. That keeps this diver's watch water resistance for up to 200 meters or 660 feet. One really notable feature about this new generation of Tudor is that they went back and tried to recreate the vintage look of the riveted bracelet. As you can see, on the links themselves, we have these little pin-like indentations on each side of the watch. These indentations are usually on the links that are not on the fixed links rather, so the ones that are not normally removed. As you can see, we start to have the little screws on the ones that can be removed. This is trying to do a little throwback to the 1950s or 1960s vintage style oyster bracelets. It's a little strange 'cause they try to go for a more modern look with the dial, but they try to go back with the vintage with the oyster bracelets. It's a little confusing there, but overall it still looks very nice. Another notable thing about the bracelet is that the bracelet is now solid. What that means is that you have these three piece links and the little pin that actually holds these links together, the little insert in the center are now solids so there's not as much wiggle room as the previous generations. Basically, this bracelet will not stretch over time as opposed to hollow bracelets. Hollow bracelets get a little more wiggle room on the bracelet and the wrist but over time it will stretch. This bracelet will last, will stay like this for the rest of it's lifetime. It's very nice, very durable, uh, change. Very nice and durable change. Let's go ahead and move on to the clasp now. Here's the clasp. It's a very simple clasp. Has a little safety mechanism here. That sits on top of this popping oyster here. As you can see, once again. Bam. Bam. Very simple, very easy to use. Has a lot of security. It is a diver's watch so you want that extra security on a sports watch. We have that Tudor name with Swiss Made engraved onto the clasp blade. Very simple. Very easy to use. One thing I would like to mention is that you can adjust the bracelet with just a small amount of change, about 2 millimeters or so I believe. That can adjust inward, outward, and that's just to add a little comfort for days that are hot and your wrist swells up. You can adjust for a little more comfort there and vice versa if it's cold, or it swells up and you don't want it wiggling around, you can adjust for it to be a little bit tighter. Let's go ahead and talk about the case back now. We have this nice oyster case backing. One thing to mention about this case back versus the older generation of Tudors is that this case back is a little more dome shaped now. It protrudes a little bit, doesn't add that much to the profile, but it does add a little bit. The reason for that is because Tudor is now using a new in-house movement that has official Swiss chronometer certification. The old style was the ETA 2824 with a 38 hour power reserve, but now we have this new in-house movement from Tudor called the MT6702. It has a 70 hour power reserve which is almost double the power reserve of the old style movement, and it features a non-magnetic silicone hairspring, so it has a little bit of a magnetic resistance there. That power reserve, that 70 hour power reserve, you can take this watch off on a Friday evening and you can still pick it up on the Monday, put it on and it'll still be working, so that's pretty cool. Alright. Let me go ahead and show you this watch on my wrist now. Very simply, I wanna demonstrate that again. Bam, easy. Nice and secure. Just look at that. That is a very gorgeous, very gorgeous dial. I really do like that kind of a bronze color of the text coming out to contrast against the black. That bronze coloring really actually brings out the index markers and the hands as well, because of that contrast from white to black. It's just so great. Let me go ahead and show you the profile on the wrist. So that's how it looks on top of the wrist. As you can see, it might be able to fit under a suit cuff very easily, very nicely. Like I said, that little dome adds a little kind of gap of space on the top of the wrist, but it should be fine. If you have any questions about this watch, please leave a comment below.
