Now available in yellow gold and steel versionBaselworld 2018: TUDOR’s famous Black Bay divers’ watch
An emblematic model celebrating 60 years of TUDOR divers’ watches with extraordinary craftsmanship. Enhancing the Black Bay with yellow gold creates a new version named S&G, for Steel & Gold. 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 manufacture Calibre MT5612
This is a variation of the movement first presented by TUDOR in 2015 and has been developed for the Black Bay S&G model. A date function features for the first time in the Black Bay line, adding to the hour, minute and second functions that are a feature of all Black Bay models.
A highperformance calibre of superb precision and proven robustness. With a 70-hour power reserve, a wearer can take off the watch on Friday evening and put it back on again on Monday morning without having to re-set and wind it. Beating to a frequency of 28,800 beats/hour or 4 Hz, the movement is regulated by a variable inertia oscillator with silicon balance spring. This is held in place by a traversing bridge, guaranteeing its robustness. Furthermore, the movement is certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).
The origins of the ORIGINS BLACK BAY Inspiration
TUDOR derived the characteristic aesthetic elements of the Black Bay S&G model from its history. The overall shape, as well as the domed dial and crystal, come from the first TUDOR divers’ watches. The prominent winding crown is a feature of the famous reference 7924 from 1958. The first TUDOR watch to be waterproof to 200 metres (660 ft), known as the Big Crown. Finally, the characteristic angular hands, known as snowflake, are typical of the watches delivered to the French Navy in the 1970s.
