Other: When the Tudor Heritage Black Bay "Red" was introduced in 2012, it shook the collective watch world (in a good way) and our friends at HODINKEE were one of the first to break the news. Although it seems like that was just yesterday, this is still one of very few modern watches that we really enjoy, stand behind, and recommend to our clients at this general price point (or any other price point for that matter). That probably comes as no surprise given its vintage lines, "gilt" dial, creamy lume plots, "snowflake" hands, and killer red aluminum bezel insert. How does it wear? HODINKEE probably said it best when they had it for A Week On The Wrist. In short, it's hard to top this watch if you're looking for a versatile piece that can take a beating on land and sea.

"With its burgundy bezel, black dial, rose-gold hands and markers and cream coloured luminescent coating, the original TUDOR Heritage Black Bay has the soft and warm patina of an antique watch." - Tudor
