TUDOR Black Bay is a collection of luxury Swiss-made watches that embody the brand's rich diving watch heritage dating back to the 1950s. The Black Bay collection combines vintage design elements with modern technology, resulting in a series of iconic diving watches featuring a unidirectional rotating bezel, luminescent hour markers, and a robust case in stainless-steel, bronze or titanium.
Since its introduction in 2012, the Black Bay collection has become a flagship collection for TUDOR, renowned for its exceptional quality, reliability, and versatility. The collection offers a range of sizes and colours to suit different preferences, making it a popular choice among watch enthusiasts and collectors.
The Black Bay collection has expanded over the years to include various subcollections, each with its own unique features and design elements.
The Black Bay 58 is named after the first-ever TUDOR dive watch waterproof to 200m, the reference 7924, released in 1958. Known as the “Big Crown” among collectors, the design of the Black Bay 58 makes aesthetic references to this historic model. Fitted with a TUDOR Manufacture Calibre, the Black Bay 58 is designed for slim wrists, people who like more compact watches and vintage enthusiasts alike.
In 2023 TUDOR presented a new addition to the Black Bay line, embodying the purest modern expression of the brand’s first-ever dive watch. The Black Bay 54 recalls model 7922 released in 1954, now with a 37mm case, a Manufacture Calibre MT5400 and a 200m depth rating.
TUDOR's famous Black Bay divers' watch is available with a GMT function that establishes local time without losing sight of the time in two other time zones. Black Bay GMT sports a 24-hour graduated rotating bezel with two colours as well as a Manufacture Calibre MT5652. The line has been expanded to include a new whimsical dial in opaline.
Black Bay Pro is an entirely new model with a dual time zone feature, a technical complication that establishes local time without losing sight of the time in another time zone. Compact, robust and sporty, this model boasts many unique aesthetic details and celebrates the spirit of the technical watches that TUDOR has produced for professionals throughout its history. Recognisable by its 24-hour graduated satin-brushed fixed bezel and its yellow 24-hour "Snowflake" hand, Black Bay Pro is powered by the TUDOR Manufacture Calibre MT5652 with built-in GMT function.
The hybrid Black Bay Chrono combines the heritage of divers’ watches represented by the Black Bay family with the queen of the racetrack, the chronograph. The characteristics of the Black Bay collection are preserved in a steel case fitted with pushers inspired by the first generation of TUDOR chronographs. A fixed bezel with an engraved tachymetric scale completes the face of this sporty chronograph.
