Tudor Black Bay: A diving watch that keeps reinventing itself again and again
Tudor began manufacturing diving watches as early as 1954. The Tudor Black Bay models are inspired by these early diving watches. With their market entry in 2012, these sporty watches have conquered a large fan base from almost a standing start. The Tudor Black Bay is known for its original black dial, on which the Snowflake hour hand and the dot and line indices filled with bright luminous material can be read easily. Many of the basic models also have red, black and blue rotating bezels.
The development process
Over the years, the Black Bay line has developed into a diverse collection of diving watches. Dials in more colors, specially coated bezels, leather straps add up to create a wide selection of different models and a number of complementary collections. With a slightly smaller diameter, the Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight has been designed to fit narrower wrists. The GMT version can be recognized at first glance by its distinctive two-tone bezel and its side pushers. And the Tudor Black Bay Chrono chronograph is equipped with a manufacture movement.
Tudor Black Bay at Wempe
Tudor and Wempe have been associated with each other since the early 1950s. Once characterized primarily by its close relationship with Rolex, Tudor has evolved into an independent, expressive brand for robust and modern watches over time. This development is also evident in Wempe's steadily growing product line which now features many Tudor watches.
