TUDOR Black Bay Dark 79230DK 41mm Black Nato Automatic Box and Papers Free Strap
TUDOR Black Bay Dark 79230DK 41mm Black Nato Automatic Box and Papers Free Strap. The history of the TUDOR divers watch dates back to 1954 and the launch of reference 7922. The first in a long line of ergonomic, legible, accurate and robust divers watches, it perfectly embodies the approach formulated by the American architect Louis Sullivan, according to whom the form of an object must follow its function. Furthermore, it laid down the aesthetic and technical foundations of an ideal divers watch, those of an understated, functional and reliable tool. The sixty years that followed the launch of the original 7922 saw the constant improvement of the TUDOR divers watch and each model gained unanimous acclaim from professionals in the field, including some of the greatest military navies in the world.
This is a beauty Tudor Black Bay Watch. The characteristic features of the Black Bay Dark model centre on the 41 mm wide steel case, finished with a black PVD-treated coating. Directly derived from the thin film technology originally developed by NASA for its various space programmes, PVD or Physical Vapour Deposition enables practically any inorganic material to be bonded with metals. The Black Bay Dark has an entirely satin finished matt finish, giving it the appearance of black military utility equipment.
Furthermore, the movement is certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). The Black Bay Dark features the particularly prominent winding crown from the famous 7924 reference of 1958, aka the Big Crown, while its characteristic angular hands, known as snowflake, were borrowed from TUDOR watches used by the French National Navy in the 1970s.This is a variant of the TUDOR Manufacture Calibre developed for the Black Bay model. It displays hours, minutes and seconds, and bears the reference MT5602, in which MT stands for Manufacture TUDOR. Please look at all the pictures, as they are part of the description. The watch is working and in great condition the previous owner barely wore it. This a great Rolex Submariner like watch with the same company making it.

Some of the items that we sell are PRE-OWNED/USED. Expect some of the items are NOT as good as new.
Very old watches keep good time but do not expect the accuracy of a modern watch. Vintage watches are very delicate and I package to the highest degree to prevent damage. High altitude flights can be hard on watches due to extreme temperature changes. This can cause the oil viscosity to decrease (gum up) and prevent a watch from ticking the balance moving freely etc. It may need to be oiled when it arrives regardless of its recent servicing (if applicable).Although this is only a very slight possibility it can occasionally happen. Unfortunately lot of sellers are calming the watch has been serviced where the watch has not been. So please be careful and ask questions from sellers first.
As far as my watches please see below. Watches I sell can have the following service Levels. Level # 1 Experts Watches Serviced. Serviced by our service repair center with over 40 years of experience very old school and very hard to find these day. Our routine service includes the following.Complete disassembly of the watch. Completely disassembled, cleaned, oiled, and timed using state of the art equipment. Clean all moving parts with specialized cleaning solvents. Proper lubrication with only the highest-grade lubricants and oils during the reassembly process. Your watch is tested to our exacting standards of 24 to 72 hours to assure accuracy, water resistance, and proper operation of all functionality. (Overhaul Lubricants, Gaskets, Sealing, Regulation, MISC testing). The was inside case is marked and dated by the service man. Receipts are available on request. Level #2 Serviced by previous owner. This watches are inspected and timed to make sure it meets the vintage watch timing standards. Level #3 Inspected and timed.
Any salt left in the watch will combine with moisture in the air to rust metal components of the movement, case etc. Winding any mechanical watch tight may break the mainspring. If you can avoid it do not wind the watch hard. When adjusting the hands of your watch, move them in a clockwise direction only. Counter-clockwise adjustments may damage the movement.
If you must adjust counter-clockwise make it for small adjustments only i. Be careful and gentle when adjusting the movement speed (faster or slower). Don't make sharp movements, and don't touch other components in the movement especially the pendulum mechanism.
Every 2-3 years it is necessary to service and oil vintage watches. IF the watch is dirty - allow the watch to run down, don't wind it again until you have it serviced by a qualified watch repair expert. Dust will absorb and remove important lubricants and cause the movement pieces to wear down. To clean the case, dial and crystal you should use a cloth that does NOT leave fibers as these may get caught up in the movement.Check with your Watch repair expert to get an appropriate cloth. Keep your antiques watch away from magnets. Strong magnetic fields may affect the accuracy of your watch since some vintage watches were made with iron based components in the movement. Most Cases and Covers are fine components and will not handle abuse well. The watch should not be shaken, beaten, or stressed. Antique watches generally experience an error of up to 5-7 minutes a day.
Any accuracy of +- 5 minutes is very good. Welcome to EXPERTS WATCHES EXPERTS WATCHES was born from a passion of collecting wristwatches for over 40 years. This passion has evolved into an opportunity to create the best destination for luxury & vintage pre-owned timepieces.
