For Baselworld 2016, Tudor replica watch has released some lust-worthy pieces from their Heritage Black Bay line, like the all-new watches and this all-black Tudor Heritage Black Bay Dark watch which also has the brand-new in-house MT5602 movement. Brooding, cool looks and this in-house movement are going to make this watch one of the standout pieces this year not just for Tudor, but for Baselworld releases.
The Tudor Heritage Black Bay series fake watches lineup has previously featured the ETA 2824, which is a good and solid movement that does not have the same sort of cachet that an in-house movement would carry with it. So, Tudor decided to up the ante and create their own movement, the MT5602. Along with carrying that in-house designation, the COSC-certified movement operates at 4Hz (28,800bph), and manages to tuck in a very respectable 70-hour power reserve.
The new movement Tudor replica watch is tucked away into the 41mm PVD and satin-finished case of the Tudor Heritage Black Bay Dark, which looks just as solid as ever while retaining the Tudor cool. On the whole, the vintage looks are certainly there – for me, this is most prevalent in the aluminum bezel insert, with the lumed pip set into a red triangle. Pair that up with the domed sapphire crystal, and you have the makings of the sort of watch that has grabbed my attention and not let go, as it’s likely done with more than a few of you. Then again, this sort of stealthed-out look manages to do the exact opposite of what it’s name would suggest, and actually draws plenty of attention.
I will say, I am thankful that the Tudor Heritage Black Bay Dark resisted the temptation that so many brands have to make a watch like this have “dark lume.” No, here, Tudor hewed closely to keeping things very legible, with the lumed indices and snowflake handset standing out in crisp, sharp relief against that black dial. In other words, you can remember that the Tudor Heritage Black Bay Dark is indeed a tool watch, complete with the 200m water resistance rating.
