The new Heritage Black Bay 41 comes with a slimmer middle case and fixed polished steel bezel for a more dressy look than the standard Black Bay collection.
As with all Black Bay watches, this is inspired by past divers’ watches from the 1950s and 1960s.
A black lacquer dial with applied rhodium-plated luminous indices, and rhodium-plated luminous hands, including the signature snowflake hand. This is a no-date model, and unlike the rest of the Black Bay collection, which is currently powered by manufacture movements, this model has been equipped with a more budget-friendly ETA 2824 caliber that is good for 38-hours.
To keep the lines clean and maintain the elegant look, the sapphire crystal is flush with the bezel, which along with the thinner case making it easy to slide this watch under a shirt cuff.
A locking crown, with a black anodized aluminum tube, coupled with gaskets on the front and back, results in a water resistance of 150 meters (slightly less than the 200-meter rating of the standard Black Bay line).
The Heritage Black Bay 41 comes with the option of a steel bracelet for $2,950 or a brown leather strap for $2,650 – and each comes with an additional urban camouflage fabric strap. (Ref. 79540)
