Tudor watches unveiled new additions to their Black Bay family at this year’s Baselworld with the Black Bay GMT.
The new Black Bay GMT additions present watches with a highly functional complication – a multiple time-zone function that displays local time without losing sight of the time in two other time zones.
Deriving a matt deep blue and burgundy colour theme from other members of the Black Bay family, the Black Bay GMT’s rotatable bezel is a nod to the beginnings of this watchmaking function. The additional time zones are marked by Tudor’s aesthetic hallmark snowflake hand. A contrasting black dial means it is legible in all conditions, including night, thanks to luminescent hour markers.
The Black Bay GMT is inspired by the Tudor divers’ watches produced in the 1950s, adopting the well-known ‘snowflake’ hands with their characteristic angular shaping familiar to collectors. This new model also features the large winding crown characteristic of the first generation on Tudor divers’ watches, meaning the Black Bay line brings together over 60 years
of Tudor divers’ watches at the same time as being resolutely anchored in the present.
A new Manufacture Calibre with the reference MT5652 has been developed by Tudor for the Black Bay GMT model. It is certified as a chronometer by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). With a 70-hour power reserve, a wearer can take off the watch on Friday evening and put it back on again on Monday morning without having to re-set and wind it.
