In 2012, Tudor released popular Heritage Black Bay collection. In terms of design, the original Black Bay has started a new chapter. But, unlike timepieces it took inspiration from, Black Bay did not have a vintage appeal with a 41mm case.
Six years later, the Black Bay Fifty-Eight was originally launched at Baselworld – which delighted exactly those collectors who prefere timepieces in a classical size.
And with a 39 mm case diameter, Black Bay Fifty-Eight was only available in one color scheme - until now.
Blue color is part of the Tudor's identity as it has been widely used in past, as well on contemporary models.
The new Black Bay Fifty-Eight „Navy Blue“ takes us back to the glory days of watchmaking and craftmenship.
A look into the past reveals a nostalgic story: in 1969, Tudor introduced a dive watch with a blue dial and bezel.
The other sporty models in the collection were soon attired in authentic blue tone, immediately creating a lasting visual hallmark, known as “Tudor Blue”.
Adopted by the fearless French navy, famous Marine Nationale, this unique livery became part of the collective Tudor identity.
The Black Bay Fifty-Eight „Navy Blue“ now follows this tradition with its navy blue dial and bezel insert. Of course, Tudor's irresistible snowflake hands also make a charming, retro appearance. The Black Bay Fifty-Eight „Navy Blue“ is available on riveted steel bracelet with polished and satin finish, “soft touch” strap with folding clasp or a casual fabric strap.
Tudor introduces a new color pattern for a timepiece whose robustness and reliability invites you to explore the sea depths. All technical elements are retained: with the Manufacture Calibre MT5402, Tudor atelier launches a second family of movements, three years after the introduction of its first in-house calibre.
