Tudor novelty for 2020: Black Bay Fifty-Eight „Navy Blue“

10 minutes read

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.

Black Bay Fifty-Eight has been the choice for those who favor the vintage aesthetic. It adopts the characteristic hands known as snowflake, which appeared in the brand’s 1969 catalogue. The recognizable symbol of the first TUDOR divers’ watch waterproof to 200 metre, large winding crown, is also incorporated in „Navy Blue“ edition

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.

For a new season, atelier Tudor pays tribute to the brand's pioneer dive timepiece with the Black Bay Fifty-Eight „Navy Blue“, a model whose dimensions and color evoke that part of the epoch.

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.
