Tudor has just announced a new member to the Black Bay family: the P01. The new design is inspired by a prototype built in the 1960’s for the US Navy, codenamed “Commando.” Tudor showcased the rare prototype on Instagram:

Drawing from a patented design from 1968 for a hinged end-link system — a locking and dismantling system for the bezel — that helps in the maintenance of the timepiece, the new P01 uses a similar system to keep the bidirectional rotating 60-notch 12-hour bezel securely in place via a mobile end-link at the 12 o’clock position. The watch comes in a 42mm satin-finished steel case, attached to a proprietary hybrid leather and rubber strap. The crown is also stylishly placed at 4 o’clock. As a diving watch for the Navy, the timepiece is water-resistant to 200m, and powered by a Manufacture Calibre MT5612 movement that has a 70 hour power reserve.

The Tudor Black Bay P01 will be available some time in July, and will retail at $3,950 USD.

If you’re looking for a diving watch, Panerai has also just released the Submersible Bronzo.
