The Tudor Black Bay collection had certainly established the reputation over the last years. It has unmistakable, authentic identity, and the new 41mm Black Bay GMT is not an exception.

This matte blue and red bezel gave the watch its famous Pepsi nickname.

This bi-colour bezel is one of the main talking points of the GMT and it has been infused with Tudor famous creativity.

The twelve daylight hours are printed on the burgundy section and the night-time hours in the blue.

The bezel and case are completed with a riveted bracelet which, like many other details on the Black Bay GMT, recalls Tudor watches from the 1950s and ’60s.

Additional straps are available in brown leather, known as Terra di Siena or in a textile fabric, made in France by a family-owned company using traditional jacquard weaving technique.

An aperture at 3 o’clock reveals the date, while the Black Bay GMT retains the 200m water resistance of its dive watch siblings.
