TUDOR is expanding its Black Bay line by presenting a model with a multiple time-zone function: the Black Bay GMT. Recognisable by its rotatable bezel, which derives its deep blue and burgundy colour theme from other models in the Black Bay line, the Black Bay GMT is also a nod to the early days of this watchmaking function. Additional time zones are indicated by a red Snowflake hand, TUDOR’s aesthetic hallmark, which spins around the dial in 24 hours, as well as a bidirectional rotatable bezel that is also calibrated for 24 hours. The twelve daylight hours are printed on the burgundy section and the night-time hours on the blue. With a steel case, 41 mm in diameter, the Black Bay GMT model is waterproof to 200 metres (660 ft) and designed to withstand the elements. Its winding crown tube is in satin-brushed steel, new for the Black Bay line and aesthetically in keeping with the case and winding crown. Its contrasting black dial means that it is legible in all conditions, including night-time, thanks to its luminescent hour markers. The dial features a GMT marker at 6 o’clock.
Launched in 2018 the Black Bay Fifty-Eight model is named after the year in which the first Tudor divers' watch, waterproof to 200 meters was introduced. This new model proposes a 39mm diameter steel case which reminds of the identifying features from 1950s watches. Ideally proportioned to fit slender wrists and to please watch lovers and vintage enthusiasts, it offers a new range of colours. Evocative of a time when TUDOR divers’ watches were first being made, finishing touches in gold have been applied to the hour markers, hands and minute track of the black and steel bezel. The winding crown tube is in satin-brushed steel - a new feature in the Black Bay line - in keeping with the style of the case and winding crown, which bears the TUDOR rose logo in relief.
Tudor's famous Black Bay diver's watch is now available in a yellow gold and steel version. An emblematic model celebrating 60 years of Tudor diver's watches with extraordinary fates, the Black Bay with yellow gold creates a new version name S&G, for Steel & Gold. With the Manufacture calibre MT5612, the Black Bay S&G introduces for the first tume the date function feature in the Black Bay line. In this version the lines and proportions of the Black Bay are retained, while the rotating bezel and the winding crown are made from yellow gold. The steel bracelet is also dressed in this precious metal on its central link giving it a more formal feel.
The Heritage Black Bay Bronze watch inherits its lines as well as its dommed dial and crystal and case from Tudor early diver's watches. These characteristical elements of the Heritage Black Bay Bronze are structured around a 43mm diameter bronze steel case. It features the prominent winding-crown seen on the famous 7924 reference of 1958 known as Big Crown. It also borrows the characteristic angular hands, known as Snowflake, from the watches delivered to the French Navy in the 1970s.The Heritage Black Bay Bronze won "Petite Aiguille" prize at Le Grand Prix de l'Horlogerie of Geneva in 2016.
