Detailed features & specifications
The Black Bay Bronze is a 43 mm divers’ watch inspired by the brand’s naval history and fitted with the TUDOR Manufacture calibre MT5601.
THE ESSENCE OF BLACK BAY
Like other models in the Black Bay line, the Black Bay Bronze model features a dial inspired by the TUDOR divers’ watches produced in the 1950’s. It also adopts the characteristic angular hands known as “Snowflake” that appeared in the brand’s 1969 catalogue. Finally, the winding crown with no crown-guard, like the holes drilled across the horns, are typical features of the first generations of TUDOR divers’ watches.
A CASE THAT “CHANGES”
The central feature of the Black Bay Bronze model is its 43-millimetre bronze case, an aesthetic reference to the brass used in old ships and diving equipment. This “living” metal, a high-performance aluminium-copper alloy used in naval engineering for submerged parts that need to be highly resistant to corrosion, will produce a subtle, unique patina, based on the wearer’s habits. In addition to a highly functional appearance, the Black Bay Bronze presents entirely satin-brushed finishes that guarantee homogeneous development of the patina.
