A CASE MADE OF CURVES AND SPARKLES
The case of the Black Bay 31, 36, 39 and 41 S&G models presents a sophisticated, curved vision of the famous Black Bay aesthetic. With its polished and domed sides in all available sizes, its soft silhouette is accentuated by a new curved winding crown. In addition to the seductive curves, the polished yellow gold of the bezel and crown is new to the Black Bay line, as the precious metals used to date have been exclusively satin-brushed for a matt finish. There is also the option of a diamond-set bezel for sizes 31, 36 and 39, a chic detail that enhances the watch’s sparkle on the wrist.
The choice of dials on the Black Bay 31, 36, 39 and 41 S&G models includes black and silver with sunray satin-finish. The Black Bay line features dials inspired by the TUDOR divers’ watches produced during the 1950s. It borrows the characteristic angular hands known to collectors as “Snowflake” from models that appeared in the brand’s 1969 catalogue. Its unprotected crown and the characteristics of its case are reminiscent of the first generations of TUDOR divers’ watches.
THE MANUFACTURE CALIBRE MT5201
With the introduction of the Manufacture Calibre MT5201, TUDOR now offers three families of self-winding movement – large (MT56), medium (MT54) and small (MT52). Manufacture Calibre MT5201 was specifically developed to power watches with smaller dimensions.
The power reserve of the large and medium-sized TUDOR Manufacture Calibres is “weekend-proof”, about 70 hours. This enables the wearer to take the watch off on a Friday evening and put it back on again on Monday morning without having to reset it. For the Manufacture Calibre MT5201 (family of small movements), the power reserve is approximately 50 hours.
THE ESSENCE OF BLACK BAY
The Black Bay line is the result of the subtle blend of traditional aesthetics and contemporary watchmaking. Far from simply being an identical re-release of a classic, it brings together over sixty years of TUDOR divers’ watches at the same time as being resolutely anchored in the present. Whilst it is neo-vintage in conception, its manufacturing techniques, reliability, robustness and the quality of its finish are consistent with today’s more rigorous requirements.
