The famous former midfielder and the icon of the current male world, David Beckham became the ambassador of the luxury Tudor watch brand. And which luxury model graces his wrist? A luxurious diving watch with retro accents, Tudor Heritage Black Bay S&G. Come with us to have a closer look at this men´s luxury piece!
The mysterious S&G designation!
What is this about? The answer is clear! S&G represent the first letters of the materials used in models of the Tudor Black Bay line. That is because this stylish men's watch is available in a very attractive combination of steel and yellow gold (Steel and Gold, S&G). Yellow gold is the material for the crown, rotating bezel and central segments of the wristband.
Unchanging tradition rooted in an ultra modern model
Heritage Black Bay S&G encompasses tradition of over 60 years. It was in 1958 that Tudor diving watches with a bold wind-up crown were first made. It was the first 200-metres waterproof watch, known under the name of Big Crown. The angular hands, Snowflake, were in turn used in 1970s watches, which were supplied to the French navy. All these elements are also incorporated in the model which reaped considerable success during the last-year´s Baselworld, the most famous watchmaking trade fair!
Details that are worth attention!
When you look at the Tudor watch it is interesting also to notice its details. For example the wristband! It was inspired by the 1950s, when the brand produced folded link bands, which were of a different shape than usual at that time. The rivets which held the links together were moreover visible, which was very unusual.
The exclusive diving watch is available with a black dial or, from 2018, also in champagne colour; either in the variant with a metal wristband, textile or dark leather strap with a clip in the shape of the Tudor band.
