By: Jamie McFadden

Watches and Wonders 2022: TUDOR

TUDOR’s ‘Born to Dare’ spirit is on full display as the brand unveils new additions to their collection at Watches and Wonders 2022. Building on its reputation for creating emblematic models chosen by the boldest adventurers, leading the pack this year is the TUDOR Black Bay Pro, an entirely new model with a dual time zone feature.

As well as the new Black Bay Pro, TUDOR introduces the Black Bay GMT in a S&G (steel and gold) version, new additions to the Black Bay Chrono S&G and the TUDOR Royal line. TUDOR is also introducing the Black Bay 31, 36, 39 and 41 S&G models, featuring a curvy design and Manufacture calibres.

TUDOR Black Bay Pro

Throughout their history, TUDOR have been chosen by some of the boldest adventurers, like the 30 explorers who embarked on the two-year British North Greenland Expedition to study Arctic ice exactly 70 years ago, with TUDOR watches on their wrists. Today, the brand presents a new technical model with a whole new aesthetic. Named the Black Bay Pro, this new addition has a 39mm diameter, a fixed steel bezel and a Manufacture Calibre with GMT function.

TUDOR’s Black Bay Pro is an entirely new model with a dual time zone feature, a technical complication that allows the adventurer to confirm their local time without losing track of the time elsewhere in the world. Compact, robust and sporty, this new model boasts 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, the Black Bay Pro is powered by the TUDOR Manufacture Calibre MT5652 with built-in GMT function.

At the heart of this new timepiece is the Manufacture Calibre MT5652, a COSC-certified movement with a silicon balance spring and boasting a 70-hour power reserve.

The TUDOR Black Bay Pro can be worn on a choice of three bracelet designs including a black Jacquard fabric, hybrid rubber and leather or riveted 316L steel with TUDOR “T-fit” clasp with rapid adjustment.

TUDOR Black Bay GMT S&G

TUDOR also introduce to the collection, their iconic Black Bay GMT model with integrated Manufacture Calibre GMT in a new S&G (Steel & Gold) version, featuring warm colours and a nostalgic touch.

The TUDOR Black Bay GMT S&G is a model with three time zones, a highly functional complication to aid the frequent traveller. Recognisable by its 24-hour graduated rotating bezel with two colours, representing both day and night, the Black Bay GMT S&G also gives a subtle aesthetic nod to the history of this watchmaking function.

A distinctive satin-brushed and polished case is crafted from 316L stainless steel and yellow gold, measuring 41mm in diameter, framed by a bidirectional rotating bezel in yellow gold and insert in black and brown anodised aluminium as a hallmark of the GMT function.

Displaying time across a domed grained matt black dial with TUDOR’s iconic “Snowflake” hands, the new Black Bay GMT S&G is powered by the Manufacture Calibre MT5652, noting a remarkable 70-hours power reserve.

TUDOR Black Bay Chrono S&G

TUDOR presents a refreshed version of the chic chronograph in the Black Bay line in steel and yellow gold, with a self-winding Manufacture Calibre, featuring a column wheel and vertical clutch, following in the purest tradition of sporting timepieces.

TUDOR has been producing watches closely tied to the world of motor sport since it first presented the Oysterdate in 1970, the brand’s first chronograph. The Black Bay Chrono S&G model combines TUDOR’s heritage in a sport-chic chronograph, with contrasting sub-counters and a high-performance Manufacture Calibre, with column wheel and vertical clutch.

TUDOR Royal

With its integrated “five-link” metal bracelet, notched or diamond-set bezel and automatic movement, the TUDOR Royal range is the epitome of both versatile and affordable sport-chic.

Royal is a name first used by TUDOR in the 1950s to emphasise the superior quality of its watches. With this heritage in mind, the TUDOR Royal range offers self-winding sport-chic watches with integrated bracelets that are as affordable as they are uncompromising. Boasting first-class technical performance and a refined aesthetic, this line sits at the crossroads between classic and sports watches. It is available in stainless steel or gold and steel and is offered in four sizes with nine dial variations.

TUDOR Black Bay 31/36/39/41 S&G

Today, TUDOR presents a new version of its Black Bay line in steel and yellow gold with a fixed bezel. All fitted with Manufacture Calibres, the models come in four sizes, with a five-link bracelet and clasp with rapid adjustment.

The TUDOR Black Bay 31, 36, 39 and 41 S&G models bring a unique aesthetic to the collection. Their curved cases are highlighted with polished yellow gold sections that embrace a sophisticated, versatile, unisex chic. Fitted with Manufacture Calibres, these models are at the cutting edge of technical watchmaking refinement. Another important feature for optimum comfort is the five-link bracelet which comes with the TUDOR “T-fit” clasp, with rapid adjustment, in all sizes.

All TUDOR watches, including those introduced at Watches and Wonders 2022, are sold with the brand’s five-year transferable guarantee with no registration or periodic maintenance checks required.
