4th April 2018
From the Pepsi coloured dial to the new GMT function, it’s one of the real standout models from the showcase. The new model, and in fact all of the new designs released at the annual watch extravaganza, offered a stark reminder that Tudor is a brand proud to create beautifully crafted timepieces that champion both style and reliability.
Not content with sticking within its comfort zone, Tudor really does believe in its Born to Dare philosophy. From the new Black Bay GMT to unveiling new calibres and much more, Baselworld 2018 was the ultimate platform to show exactly what the brand is made of.
Discover more about the latest modes unveiled at Baselworld 2018, all available to pre-order today.
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, but in a matt version, the Black Bay GMT is also a nod to the early days of this watchmaking function.
The Black Bay Fifty-Eight is named after the year in which the first Tudor divers’ watch, waterproof to 200 metres, the reference 7924, dubbed the “Big Crown”, was introduced.
An emblematic model celebrating 60 years of Tudor divers’ watches with extraordinary craftsmanship. Enhancing the Black Bay with yellow gold creates a new look.
BLACK BAY BLUE DIAL
This model features a dial inspired by the TUDOR divers’ watches produced during the 1950s. They adopt the characteristic angular hands known to collectors as snowflake that appeared in the brand’s 1969 catalogue.
BLACK BAY BLUE DIAL
This contemporary model, complete with brown leather strap, boasts a large winding crown, characteristic of the first generation of TUDOR divers’ watches. The model also features a Calibre 2824 movement.
Born in 1926, Tudor watches have grown in style and class for many years in front of collectors’ eyes. Known for their strength, reliability and precision, the new watches from Tudor are made up of standout collections including Fastrider, Heritage and North Flag. With sizes and styles in a broad range available for men and women, a Tudor timepiece would take pride of place in your watch collection.
Tudor is one of the most exciting and dynamic watch makers, and therefore every time they release a new piece – or redesign a style – there is a lot of interest in the end product. This is excellent news, but sometimes in all the commotion the details and information that reveal just how special the pieces are can get overlooked.
Guests gathered in the thrill room at our ROX Newcastle Boutique at Monument Mall to marvel over The Tudor Baselworld 2016 novelties. The theme was 1920’s Gentleman Club and guests enjoyed showcases from Duke Ata Menswear and classic gentleman haircuts from G. Scott Gentlemen’s Hairdressers. Sohe fusion sushi and eastern cuisine was enjoyed by the guests as they browsed the latest collections from the luxury Swiss watch brand.
