Brand Exclusive: TUDOR Reveals Black Bay Fifty-Eight "Navy Blue"

Brand Exclusive: TUDOR Reveals Black Bay Fifty-Eight

As official TUDOR watch stockists at Wakefields Jewellers we're incredibly excited to announce a striking new addition to the brand's iconic Black Bay collection. Ever faithful to its long tradition of blue sports watches, TUDOR now offers a “Navy Blue” version of its flagship model, the Black Bay Fifty-Eight.

The Black Bay Fifty-Eight “Navy Blue” gets its name from its colour, of course, but also from the year 1958, in which the first TUDOR divers’ watch waterproof to 200 metres (660 ft), reference 7924 or “Big Crown”, was presented. Among other aesthetic nods to this historic watch, this model offers a 39 mm diameter case in keeping with the characteristic proportions of watches from the 1950s. Ideal for slim wrists, people who like more compact watches and vintage enthusiasts, the Black Bay Fifty-Eight “Navy Blue” also carries on with the long TUDOR tradition of blue sports watches.

TUDOR BLUE

In 1969, TUDOR introduced a divers’ watch with a blue dial and bezel. The other sports watches in the collection were soon attired in blue, immediately creating a lasting aesthetic hallmark known as “TUDOR Blue”. Adopted by the French navy for its TUDOR divers’ watches during the 1970s, this livery became part of the collective imagination. The Black Bay Fifty-Eight “Navy Blue” follows in this tradition with its navy blue dial and bezel insert. This is a colour that also appears on the “soft touch” strap offered with this model.

10 YEARS OF THE TUDOR FABRIC STRAP

Navy blue is also the dominant colour of the fabric strap offered with this model. The fabric strap is one of the hallmarks of TUDOR, which, in 2010, became one of the very first watchmaking brands to offer this type of strap with its products. Woven in France on 19th century Jacquard looms by the Julien Faure company in the St-Etienne region, its manufacturing quality and comfort on the wrist are unique.

THE CALIBRE MT5402

The Manufacture Calibre MT5402, which equips the Black Bay Fifty-Eight “Navy Blue”, displays hour, minute and second functions. It has the finish typical of TUDOR Manufacture calibres. Its build has been designed to ensure robustness, longevity, reliability and precision, and is chronometer-certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), with its performance going beyond the standards set by this independent institute. Another notable feature is that the power reserve of the Manufacture MT5402 Calibre is “weekend-proof”; that is to say about 70 hours, 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 and reset it.

BLACK BAY

Like other models in the Black Bay range, the Black Bay Fifty-Eight “Navy Blue” is a subtle blend of traditional aesthetics and contemporary watchmaking, and features TUDOR’s characteristic angular hands known as “Snowflake” that were first used in 1969. Resolutely anchored in the present, the Black Bay collection encompasses almost seven decades of TUDOR divers’ watches history.

THE TUDOR DIVERS’ WATCH

The history of the TUDOR divers’ watch dates back to 1954 with the launch of reference 7922. Waterproof up to 100 metres (330 ft), it is the firstborn in a long line of “divers” watches. Affordable, robust, reliable and precise, it is representative of the philosophy of a tool-watch of the brand. The seven decades following the introduction of reference 7922 have witnessed the constant improvement of the TUDOR divers’ watch, gaining wide acclaim from professionals in the field, as well as some of the largest navies in the world.
