Watches & Wonders 2021: Tudor Black Bay Watches In New Silver and Gold Cases

Forget Steel and Gold, These New Silver and Gold Watches From Tudor Are Sure To Be A Big Hit

It is no secret that the Black Bay Fifty-Eight collection from Tudor has been wildly successful for the brand. Last year, they introduced a new colour to the collection and enthusiasts went crazy trying to get their hands on one. This year the frenzy is set to continue as the Black Bay Fifty-Eight is updated once again not only with new colours but with exciting new materials. Additionally, a new update to their Black Bay Chrono sees two panda dial variants pop up, offering an irresistible package for chronograph and Tudor fans.

Black Bay Fifty-Eight 925

This is undoubtedly the pièce de resistance for Tudor this year. Not only does this dive watch offer a brand-new material, never before used in Tudor’s watchmaking portfolio, it is also one that is incredibly unorthodox—and that is 925 silver. Yes, you heard us, a silver alloy case on a 39 mm diver, you don’t need to hear much else to get on board.

925 Silver is such an unusual material for a case but no risk, no reward.

The exact composition of this material remains a secret but, on the wrist, it exudes an almost incandescent brilliance making the piece quite hard to ignore. Additionally, they have paired this watch with a brilliant taupe colour scheme that extends from the dial to the bezel as well.

Yet another first for Tudor dive watches is the fact that the new Fifty-Eight will come with an open caseback. This gives the wearer an unobstructed look at the manufacture calibre MT5400 that powers the watch, yet still, maintain its water-resistance of 200 m.

Black Bay Fifty-Eight 18K

At a glance, it is easy to mistake this watch as just another Black Bay with a bronze case but as you look closer, it will become apparent that the watch is clad in a lavish 18k yellow gold case.

Even though the case is 18k yellow gold, it still wears well as a casual piece.

Tudor purposefully gave this watch a satin finish for a matt effect as opposed to the polished finishing on most gold watches. This was done to find a delicate balance between the Fifty-Eight’s legacy as a robust tool watch and its modern-day connotation as a luxury item. The watch is also powered by the in-house MT5400 calibre movement and will currently be the only other watch in the collection to feature a display caseback.

Black Bay Chrono

Both versions of the panda dial Black Bay Chono will sit alongside the one in steel and gold launched a while back. However, the new colour scheme is not the only thing that is new with this collection.

Tudor offers both panda dial variants so there is something for everyone.

The watch has a thinner case—14.4mm—thanks to a combination of a redesigned sapphire crystal and a repositioning of the movement. The watch also offers a new fixed bezel in steel with a black aluminium disc and a tachymeter scale. The manufacture Calibre MT5813 movement that powers the watch has a column wheel and vertical clutch and a massive 70 hours of power reserve.
