Watches & Wonders 2021: Tudor

Following a very fast-paced and modern presentation, TUDOR released an explosive line-up that blew us away.

Black Bay Fifty-Eight

TUDOR is launching a unique new version of its popular Black Bay Fifty-Eight model in 925 silver with an open case back – two firsts for a TUDOR divers’ watch, and creating a surprising incandescence.

The name of the radiant Black Bay Fifty-Eight 925 model is, of course, a reference to the precious metal of its case, but also to 1958, the year in which the first TUDOR divers’ watch waterproof to 200 metres (660 ft), reference 7924 or “Big Crown”, was introduced. Among other aesthetic nods to this historic watch, this model offers a case 39 mm in diameter in keeping with the characteristic proportions of the 1950s. Ideal for slim wrists, vintage enthusiasts and those who like objects with a difference, the Black Bay Fifty-Eight 925 is also the first TUDOR divers’ watch to be made in silver and to offer an open case back.

Black Bay Chrono

To mark 50 years of its chronographs, TUDOR is relaunching its Black Bay Chrono model in steel with a reworked case and two dial options with con- trasting sub-counters in the purest tradition of the sports chronograph.

Since the launch in 1970 of the Oysterdate model, its first chronograph, TUDOR has always produced watches that are closely tied to the world of motor sport. Since 1954, TUDOR has likewise been constantly improving its professional divers’ watches. The Black Bay Chrono model combines these traditions in a sports chronograph for purists, with contrasting sub-counters and a high- performance automatic Manufacture Calibre, with column wheel and vertical clutch.

Black Bay Fifty-Eight 18K

TUDOR is introducing a bold new version of its popular model, the Black Bay Fifty-Eight, in 18 ct yellow gold with an open case back. This is a first for both in a TUDOR divers’ watch.

The name Black Bay Fifty-Eight 18K is, of course, a reference to the precious metal of its case, but also to 1958, the year in which the first TUDOR divers’ watch waterproof to 200 metres (660 ft), reference 7924 or “Big Crown”, was introduced. Among other aesthetic nods to this historic watch, this model offers a case 39 mm in diameter in keeping with the characteristic proportions of the 1950s. Ideal for slim wrists, people who like more compact watches and, of course, vintage enthusiasts, the Black Bay Fifty-Eight 18K is also the first TUDOR divers’ watch to be made in 18 ct yellow gold and offered with an open case back.
