Why We Love it

While we built our business — and our passion — around vintage watches, it’s doubtful there’s a contemporary collection that better encapsulates the vintage spirit better than Tudor’s Black Bay. And more specifically, the Black Bay Fifty-Eight. 

The Black Bay Fifty-Eight takes all that we love about vintage dive watches — and more specifically, vintage Tudor and Rolex dive watches — and boils it down to an absurdly handsome, highly wearable modern timepiece. Originally launched in a black dial with a steel case, Tudor has since expanded the offerings to include offbeat metals such as bronze, solid gold, and even sterling silver!

The particular Black Bay Fifty-Eight we have here, a Reference 79018V, features a 39mm 18 yellow gold case with a sapphire crystal, a unidirectional rotating dive timing bezel with a pale green insert insert, a luminous green dial with a matching ‘snowflake’ handset, and a screw-down rose crown. Powered by the automatic, chronometer-certified Tudor MT5400 movement, it comes fitted to a signed brown leather strap with a signed yellow gold pin buckle.

If you love the idea of something like a vintage gold Submariner but don’t want to baby a vintage piece — or cough up what is no doubt a pretty penny — then take it from us — the Black Bay Fifty-Eight 18K is the watch to buy.

This beautiful, unexpected execution offers something a bit out of the norm, and we love it.

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.
