Why We Love it

As a brand, Tudor needs no introduction. 

Although for years the company had labored under Rolex’s shadow, since its relaunch in the U.S. roughly a decade ago, it has attained an identity all its own. Part of the appeal lies in watches like this one, the Black Bay, which bridges the gap between vintage and contemporary in a way that’s hard to argue with — even for purists like us.

The Black Bay is, along with the Pelagos, the brand’s take on classic Rolex and Tudor dive watches. In creating it, Tudor started at the very beginning of Tudor and Rolex dive watch history: It incorporates the “big crown” of the first reference of Tudor Sub, the Reference 7922, which had an 8mm crown like its Rolex counterpart. For the hands, the Black Bay makes use of the same handset as the most famous of vintage Tudor Subs, the Reference 7021 “Snowflake.”

This particular Black Bay is a Black Bay Dark, a further extension of Tudor's riff on its classic models. Instead of finished steel, the Oyster case is coated in PVD with a matching black dial and PVD-treated steel bracelet. Dating to circa 2016-2017, it measures 41mm and features a PVD-coated, signed crown, a unidirectional PVD bezel with a black insert and a red triangle, a domed, sapphire crystal, and a luminous black dial with a matching ‘snowflake’ handset and applied indices. Powered by the Tudor MT5602 automatic, chronometer-certified movement, it comes paired to a grey Tudor woven strap with a signed, PVD pin buckle, and also includes a signed, distressed black leather strap with a signed PVD deployant clasp.

If you’re in the market for a stealthy, reliable dive watch, look no further — this is the watch to own!

Overall Condition

The case is in excellent condition showing only light wear consistent with age and use. Luminous matte black dial is in as-new condition with matching ‘snowflake’ handset. Signed crown.

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.
