Black Bay is a classic series of Tudor, it is a diving watch that is much more affordable than Rolex Submariner. Compared with other diving watches, Tudor Black Bay has some iconic features that could be identified easily. First, the alloy bezel has several color options, which include red, blue, etc. The hour hand is reverse and the watch is equipped with a rivet bracelet. Today, I would like to give an introduction of a replica Tudor watch that was published by ZF factory, it is the latest replica of Tudor Heritage Black Bay Shield, whose reference number is m79230r-0001. About this replica, ZF factory has made several times of improvement and this one is the ultimate version, I think there is no room for improvement on this replica watch, unless ZF is willing to install a genuine ETA 2824, it is unnecessary, because Asian 2824 has already been so stable and durable.
The case is in diameter of 41mm, it is 11mm in thickness. The front of the case is brushed, while both sides are polished, please feel the case edge by your hand, it is very smooth and no scratch feeling. ZF does a good job in case polishing. Red bezel is uni-directional rotating, the clicking sound is very crisp and makes me excited. The markers on red bezel are in Platinum, which forms a sharp contrast with the red background. The marker at 12 o’clock is round and has a silver edge, it is known as bezel pearl and filled with white luminescence. The crown has Tudor’s classic rose flower pattern that is neatly engraved, the rose flower logo is blackened.
Under the dome-shaped sapphire crystal, you can see classic snowflake hand on the black dial. Both hands and hour markers have rose gold edge, the rose gold tone is a perfect match with the red color of the bezel. White luminescence on hour markers and hands are evenly applied. In dark place, you can see the green lume light emitting from the dial is strong. Dial printings and minutes scales are in brown color. ZF factory uses advanced printing technolgoy, so the printings on the dial don’t look flat, they are raised from the dial. This is a big feature that differentiates ZF Tudor Black Bay replica from other cheap versions.
Like case, rivet bracelet is made of 316L stainless steel. The whole bracelet is brushed and has rivets on both sides of each link. The rivets design on the bracelet adds a retro flavor to the replica Tudor Black Bay, just like the wine red bezel. Whether on front or back of the clasp, there are correct engravings. If you order this watch, we will also send you one extra pair of red nylon band for free.
After being introduced to the public, Tudor Black Bay m79230r-0001 immediately attracted a lot of watch fans due to its elegant appearance and retro feeling. Genuine watch was released in 2016, now it is hard to get one from the market. So, to reproduce the classic, ZF made this super replica, sold at a very low price, it is worth buying.
