Tudor Takes The Black Bay Legacy One Step Forward At Watches and Wonders 2024
Tudor Takes The Black Bay Legacy One Step Forward At Watches and Wonders 2024

Tudor takes the high road after an exciting pre-W&W season — offering a solid gold Black Bay, updates to its flagships, and more modern dial sizes

Last year at Watches and Wonders, Tudor took the fairly expected route of expanding the Black Bay lookbook. This is exactly what they did with the Burgundy, GMT, Fifty-Four and smaller variants save for the Tudor Royal; a rather unique, dressier take on the sports watch that offered unusual combinations such as Latin hour markers and a full-size day window.

 

After a recent pink dial Miami FC watch stole the show earlier this month, 2024's Watches and Wonders releases play on much of the same themes — we have more extensions of the Black Bay family, with a single outlier that offers Latin hour markers (albeit fewer of them) and a markedly different aesthetic. Let's have a look then, shall we?

Tudor's new Black Bay 58 GMT is a nod to the golden age of air travel, featuring a 39mm case and a bidirectional bezel in warm hues. Equipped with the new GMT Manufacture Calibre MT5450-U, this model is certified by METAS, ensuring precision and resistance to magnetic fields.

With its distinctive case size reminiscent of Tudor's 1950s divers' watches and its elegant, travel-inspired design, the Black Bay 58 GMT is the perfect companion for the modern adventurer.

The latest Black Bay model showcases a monochrome aesthetic with a Master Chronometer certification by METAS. Retaining its original proportions and signature features like the "Snowflake" hands, this iteration introduces a modern look with rhodium-plated markers and hands against a black dial.

Its Manufacture Calibre MT5602-U ensures top-notch performance, including a 70-hour power reserve and resistance to magnetic fields, cementing Tudor's reputation for producing watches of exceptional quality and reliability.

Echoing Rolex's recent Deepsea in gold, Tudor expands its Black Bay 58 line with a luxurious 18 ct yellow gold model, featuring an open case back and the Manufacture Calibre MT5400. This piece echoes the daring spirit of Tudor's first diver's watch introduced in 1958, now presented in an all-gold version; this is now expected to be the most expensive standard watch in the brand's lineup.

With a subtle 'golden green' dial and the distinctive 'Snowflake' hands in 18 ct gold, this watch marries robustness with preciousness, making a bold statement of Tudor's watchmaking expertise.

 

Clair de Rose

Tudor rejuvenates its Clair de Rose line, infusing it with their signature "Tudor Blue" dials, exclusively in stainless steel and available in three sizes — 26mm, 30mm and 34mm. This collection pays homage to Tudor's rich heritage, merging the poetic essence of "moonlight" with the brand's iconic rose emblem; resulting in a reference to the brand's art deco founding era and the dial colour's 1960's origins. Its safe to say that this is, by far, the most retro of the brand's offerings this year.

The watches are equipped with the self-winding Calibre T602/T201, offering a 38-hour power reserve, and boast classic indices with Roman numerals or diamonds, embodying Tudor's commitment to elegance and precision.
