An aesthetic reference to a ‘living’ metal
Tudor is a pioneer in bronze: as early as 2016, this brand introduced its first watch with a case made of the unusual material. Now Tudor is launching a new version: the Black Bay Bronze with a slate-grey dial shaded from the exterior to the centre and a bezel coupled with gold accents. Another characteristic detail is the ‘snowflake’, a signature of Tudor divers’ watches. This distinctively shaped hand made its debut exactly 50 years ago. 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 other diving equipment. This ‘living’ metal, a high-performance aluminium- copper alloy, will produce a subtle, unique patina on every watchcase, based on the wearer’s habits.
In addition to a highly functional appearance and in line with the world to which it pays tribute, the Black Bay Bronze presents entirely satin-brushed finishes that guarantee homogeneous development of the patina. The case encloses manufacture Calibre MT5601. The self-winding movement displays the hours, minutes and seconds. Its appearance and finishes are typical of Tudor manufacture calibres. The movement, which is certified as a C.O.S.C. chronometer, offers a 70-hour power reserve. The new Black Bay Bronze is worn with a rounded black Nubuck leather wristband or a slate-grey textile strap.
