TUDOR has launched the Black Bay Ceramic model, which is an extraordinary watch and symbol of the brand’s technical expertise, with a case in matt black ceramic, a Manufacture Calibre and a Master Chronometer certification from METAS.
Like other models in the Black Bay range, the Black Bay Ceramic adopts TUDOR’s characteristic angular hands known as “Snowflake” that appeared in the brand’s 1969 catalogue. The result of a subtle blend of traditional aesthetics and contemporary watchmaking, the Black Bay line is far from simply being an identical rerelease of a classic.
Aesthetically, the TUDOR Black Bay Ceramic combines contemporary, high-tech details with subtle references to its significant heritage. Its matt black monobloc ceramic case has sand-blasted surfaces with bevelled edges, mirror-polished for a striking contrast, and is finished with very pronounced lines. The insert of its rotatable bezel is also in black ceramic with a sunray satin finish.
Its build is designed to ensure robustness and precision, as is its variable inertia balance, which is maintained by a sturdy traversing bridge with a two-point fixing. Together with its non-magnetic silicon hairspring, the Manufacture Calibre MT5602-1U is able to function within a tolerance range of 5 seconds (0 +5).
Another notable feature is that the power reserve of the Manufacture MT5602-1U Calibre is “weekend-proof”; that is to say, it has been certified for 70 hours by METAS , which enables the wearer to take the watch off on a Friday evening and put it back on again on Monday morning without having to wind it. Even if you need a weekend away, your watch does not.
