TUDOR Black Bay

The Black Bay range is one of Tudor’s largest collections and links back to their maritime heritage. They used the iconic Tudor Submariner model for inspiration within their design process for the Black Bay. And since its launch in 2012 the Black Bay has been a major success for the company, it has won numerous awards and has generated a large client base for both model and brand.

The Tudor Black Bay range was first introduced in 2012, where they began their journey with the ref. 79220R, featuring a burgundy bezel and black dial. The dial on the Black Bay has round dots and rectangular hour markers and at the twelve the dial is commanded by an inverted triangle. These are influenced by the markers which were prominent in the Tudor Submariner range. After its introduction, it was marked as the best revival piece at the following year's Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. Once this model was awarded this title, it marked the significant growth of the range.

In response to the award, Tudor released variations of this model, ref. 79220B. This model contained a black or dark blue bezel, paired with their signature matte black dial.

Success within this collection led to many variations down the line, with different bezel colours, dial colours, bracelets and straps. This widened their range massively creating a perfect model for every customer.

When the range was first launched in 2012 it was powered by an ETA 2824 automatic movement, which contained a 38-hour power reserve. But in 2015 Tudor undertook a pivotal change; they began manufacturing their own movement (Calibre MT5621), MT standing for Manufacture Tudor. This movement was first issued in the North Flag model and has a 70-hour power reserve. With more development occurring through the years, their in-house movement now features in the majority of Black Bay models.

Along its journey, the Black Bay range has expanded drastically, which led to the range winning multiple Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève awards. Some of the most popular models in the range include the GMT, Chrono, Heritage and Bronze. The models come in a variety of dial & bezel colours, as well as materials.
