TUDOR Black Bay: A Timeless Fusion of Heritage and Innovation
The TUDOR watch brand is renowned for crafting classic timepieces with a contemporary flair. From the TUDOR Oyster Prince Submariner, the brand’s first watch, to the more recent TUDOR Pelagos 39, TUDOR has consistently delivered innovative and stylish watches since its inception in the mid-1900s. The TUDOR Black Bay is a particular favorite among luxury watch enthusiasts. In this article, we’ll delve into the history of the TUDOR brand and explore the features that make the TUDOR Black Bay so popular.
History of the TUDOR Brand
Swiss watch company Veuve de Philippe Huther trademarked the TUDOR name in 1926. However, it wasn’t until 1946, when Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf established Montres TUDOR SA, that the TUDOR brand truly came to life. In the 1940s and 1950s, TUDOR produced watches such as the TUDOR Oyster and TUDOR Oyster Prince. Over the years, the brand expanded its lineup to include models like the TUDOR Black Bay, Fastrider Black Shield, Heritage Ranger, and Pelagos.
About the TUDOR Black Bay
The first TUDOR Black Bay reference was launched in 2012. This functional dive watch borrowed design elements from the mid-1900s TUDOR Submariner, combining a classic aesthetic with modern features. The TUDOR Black Bay had a 41mm case, pink gold hands and lume plots, and a steel unidirectional rotating bezel. A dome sapphire crystal protects the elegant dial. With 200-meter water resistance, the TUDOR Black Bay watch was available with either a steel bracelet or a vintage leather watch strap.
Over time, the TUDOR Black Bay has evolved with new case sizes, bezel colors, bracelet/strap options, and movement components.
