TUDOR is introducing a bold new version of its popular model, the Black Bay 58, in solid 18 ct yellow gold with an open case back. This is a first for both in a TUDOR divers’ watch.
TUDOR is also launching a unique new version of its popular Black Bay 58 model in 925 silver – a first for a TUDOR divers' watch, and creating a surprising incandescence.
The Manufacture Calibres MT5400 and MT5402 which power the Black Bay 58 models, display hour, minute and second functions. They show the finish typical of TUDOR Manufacture Calibres. Their builds have been designed to ensure robustness, longevity, reliability and precision, as has a variable inertia balance, which is maintained by a sturdy traversing bridge with a two-point fixation. Together with their non-magnetic silicon hairsprings, the Manufacture Calibre MT5400 and MT5402 are certified as chronometers by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), with performances going beyond the standards set by this independent institute.
Another notable feature is that the power reserve of both these calibres is "weekend-proof"; that is to say about 70 hours, which 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.
The Black Bay 58 comes with a choice of a riveted steel bracelet with polished and satin finish, a leather or “soft touch” strap with folding clasp, or a fabric strap. One of TUDOR’s signature features, the fabric strap is made using the Jacquard technique, a traditional method achieved by a 150-year-old family business from the St-Etienne region of France.
