With sister company Rolex unveiling its 2022 collection over in Geneva for Watches and Wonders, Tudor has now also introduced its latest offerings for the year, this time focusing heavily on its iconic Black Bay series.
Spearheading the new releases is an all-new model named the Black Bay Pro. No doubt inspired by Rolex‘s Explorer II, the timepiece takes on a 39mm stainless steel case with curves emblematic of the heritage diving collection. A 24-hour steel bezel surrounds a sleek black dial with Tudor’s usual round indexes and snowflake hands, not complemented by a vibrant yellow fourth GMT hand. COSC-certified, the watch runs on the automatic calibre MT5652 with a power reserve of 70 hours. It’ll also come in three strap options: a steel bracelet, a hybrid leather and rubber strap, and a fabric strap with a matching yellow stripe.
Aside from the Black Bay Pro, Tudor has also refreshed another GMT, giving its classic Black Bay GMT a steel and gold makeover. The 41mm case is constructed predominantly in steel, with gold accents by the Root Beer 24-hour bezel, crown, and center links of the bracelet option. For those looking for something a little less flashy, you’ll also be able to opt for either a fabric strap or a brown leather strap. Housed within the timepiece is the same MT5652 movement as the Black Bay Pro.
Tudor didn’t stop there with its affinity for steel and gold this year. The fun combination of materials has now been applied to the Black Bay Chrono as well, giving the racing-minded model a lush gold dial with contrasting black subdials and a tachymeter bezel in the same tone. The pushers and crown have also been crafted in gold to provide more variance across the timepiece, and a choice of two straps and a bracelet will better cater to your preferences.
Rounding out the new collection are a host of new steel and gold Black Bay models in 31mm, 36mm, 39mm and 41mm in different color and material combinations as well as two new 28mm Tudor Royal options designed for women, featuring diamond-set bezels and mother of pearl dials.
