Every year, horologists from around the world head to Basel, Switzerland, for the world’s most prestigious watchmaking event–Baselworld. Luxury designers from all corners of the globe attend the event, showing off their latest timepieces. Some brands even develop limited edition designs especially for Baselworld, and this year, one of the most buzzed about limited editions is the Baselworld 2016 Tudor Heritage Black Bay 36.
While the Baselworld 2016 Tudor Heritage Black Bay 36 retains the classic sophistication that has made the Tudor Heritage Black Bay such a timeless favorite, the new version of the watch has been made slimmer. As a result, the watch is comfortable and lighter than ever. The changes to the size also elevate the look of the Heritage Black Bay, making the casual watch a lot dressier.
The Baselworld 2016 Tudor Heritage Black Bay 36 will be sold with two different bands. For a sleek, clean look, men can choose the stainless steel bracelet with deployment clasp. For a more vintage effect, the distressed leather strap is ideal. Both versions of the timepiece will be sold with an extra fabric strap with Tudor’s famous urban camouflage print.
The Baselworld 2016 Tudor Heritage Black Bay 36 debuted at Baselworld 2016 in March 2016 and will soon be available for purchase from select Tudor stockists. The watch will reportedly sell for around $2500. As it’s a limited edition design, the timepiece is likely to sell out quickly once it arrives in stores.
