NEW TUDOR BLACK BAY CERAMIC
25th May 2021
TUDOR has launched the new TUDOR Black Bay Ceramic, an extraordinary watch and symbol of the brand’s technical expertise. Featuring a case in matt black ceramic, a new Manufacture Calibre and a Master Chronometer certification from METAS.
HIGH TECH LOOK
The TUDOR Black Bay Ceramic combines contemporary, high-tech details with subtle references to its significant heritage. It’s matt black monobloc ceramic case has sand-blasted surfaces with bevelled edges, mirror-polished for a striking contrast.. The insert of its rotatable bezel is also in black ceramic with a sunray satin finish. The engraved graduations in matching tones offer a complementary additional matt detail, which responds subtly to changes in light. Its dial is also black on black, the only contrast being its applied hour markers with off-white luminescent material. Finally, a hybrid leather and rubber strap, black of course, with a “Snowflake” motif on the inside and folding clasp, as well as a complimentary black fabric strap with cream band completes the stealthy look.
THE MANUFACTURE CALIBRE MT5602-1U
In a first for the Swiss watch brand, TUDOR has successfully achieved Master Chronometer certification status for the TUDOR Black Bay Ceramic. The Manufacture Calibre MT5602-1U displays hour, minute and seconds functions. It has the finish typical of TUDOR Manufacture Calibres but is entirely in black. Its rotor in black tungsten monobloc is openwork and satin-brushed with sand-blasted details, and its bridges and mainplate have alternate sand-blasted, polished surfaces and laser decorations. The power reserve of the Manufacture MT5602-1U Calibre is certified for 70 hours by METAS.
“AN EXTRAORDINARY WATCH AND SYMBOL OF THE BRAND’S TECHNICAL EXPERTISE”
Royal is a name first used by TUDOR in the 1950s to emphasise the superior quality of its watches.
The Black Bay Fifty-Eight pays homage to Tudor’s first divers’ watches from the late 1950’s, with a smaller case size and retro dial and bezel that summon-up that golden age.
