Why We Love it

For the better part of the past decade, Tudor has been knocking it out of the park with their contemporary offerings. Watches such as the Black Bay, Heritage Chronograph and Pelagos collections have been flying off the shelves for their impressive looks, sporty construction and thoughtful price points. 

With all of the sporty bangers in Tudor’s Black Bay collection, it would be easy to overlook their simpler, time-only offerings. With nearly-perfect proportions, vintage nods including their signature ‘snowflake’ handset, uncluttered caseback and a minimal, elegant design, the Black Bay also offers an incredible value proposition for those looking for a versatile three-handed watch. 

In 2017, Tudor grew the Black Bay collection -quite literally- when they released the Black Bay 41, a larger sibling to the massively popular BB36. 

This piece, a Reference 79690, features a 41mm stainless steel case with a polished fixed bezel, a ‘rose’ signed screw-down crown, a sapphire crystal and a blue sunburst dial that sports a luminous applied indices, a matching ‘snowflake’ handset, a ‘lollipop’ seconds hand and straight-line text at 6 o’clock.

It houses Tudor’s self-winding, COSC-certified Calibre MT5601 equipped with  a weekend-proof 70 hour power reserve and comes fitted to a sleek multi-link stainless steel bracelet with a signed flip-lock clasp. Don’t let its refined look fool you either — this BB41 boasts 100 meters of water resistance — more than enough for any casual swim.

We simply cannot speak highly enough of this watch as an entry-level daily driver, for anyone who prefers a slightly larger case size.

It’s simple, robust, and yup... timeless. Perfect? You decide.

Brand Story

+
Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf created Tudor in 1926 for the everyman — for miners, construction workers and all sorts of tradesmen. For your everyday person Rolex was sometimes — and is now more so than ever — out of reach. It was meant for the explorer and the businessman, whereas Tudor was to be a different creature entirely.

In creating Tudor, Wilsdorf wanted to offer “a watch that our agents could sell at a more modest price than our Rolex watches, and yet one that would attain the standards of dependability for which Rolex is famous.”

Tudors were in many ways Rolexes in all but name, with the same waterproof Oyster cases and similar styling. However, in order to keep costs down, the brand used off-the-shelf Swiss movements rather than their own in-house calibres. What resulted were watches that were more affordable than Rolexes to the consumer, but still uniformly tough and reliable.

Today Tudor has certainly defeated any impression of being the redheaded stepchild of the Rolex family, and their current timepiece collection — as well as their vintage counterparts — are getting the recognition and respect they most rightfully deserve. From the colorful “Home Plate” chronograph to the complicated Advisor, these models often picked up where Rolex left off, daring to be more bold and playful in their design. And now that the brand has introduced in-house movements while still managing to keep pricing modest, the company is better poised than ever to win the hearts and minds of millions of new watch enthusiasts.
