I still remember working in retailing selling these at retail price when the in-house caliber started coming in, the remaining ETA models soon flew off the shelves as collectors jumped to get them. The way these have increased in price over the years has been amazing to watch and I do not suspect it will stop anytime soon, especially for ones in this great condition and coming with absolutely everything! The Black bezel model has been the highest growing in price and the most collectible, the gilt writing and hands really pops against the dial and gives the watch a nice contrast on the wrist.
Obviously no one can tell the future. But I think the ETA Black Bays are not only a great bet as they will never make it again and it was a limited production, they are also incredible versitle and very well built! As I always mention when selling a Tudor, you get everything you love about Rolex with their build quality but at a much more attainable price for most!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as a complete set with its box, paperwork & comes with the Tudor NATO strap. The watch comes in great cosmetic condition with few signs of wear, the watch has been worn but well looked after! The watch is running great too, realiable ETA inside.
I will stand by that Tudor offer some of the very best value for money in their price section, Omega come close but I truly believe Tudor go that extra step and offer something incredible. These ETA models will continue to grow in my opinion, maybe not at the rate of some Rolex models but still at an alarming rate for a Tudor!
