2020 Black Tudor Popular Worldwide
We know that in watch collections, antique Rolex watches are in a period of good auction prices and soaring secondary market values. As a result, while people like the look of an old-fashioned tool watch, the current price is limited for many people. Fortunately, Tudor, Rolex's sister company, has jumped on the bandband10 with a very retro dive watch that meets modern standards. Let's look at the details here.
The new Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight includes a stainless steel case that is not only smaller in size at 39mm in diameter but also slimmer at just 11.9mm thick. These new pared-down proportions fit perfectly into the retro style, as vintage watches are typically much smaller than today's modern counterparts. Whether for men who favor more restrained sizes or for ladies who are in the market for great luxurywatches
, this new size is right on so many levels.
Another big draw of the new Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight dive watch is the new manufacture movement it runs on. The Tudor Caliber MT5402 is a brand new in-house automatic movement built for mid-sized Tudor timepieces. It joins Tudor's other in-house calibers—the first of which was unveiled in 2015 for the Pelagos.
Stressing on the vintage vibe of the Black Bay Fifty-Eight is the black domed dial fitted with gold surrounds on the luminescent hour markers, gold center hands, gold outer minute track, and gold text. Besides, there's also the gold detailing on the black unidirectional rotating dive bezel like the typical Submariner. Features of Black Bay watches, the new Tudor Fifty-Eight also includes the snowflake style hands from the late 1960s and an oversized winding crown. Protecting the face of the watch is a domed sapphire crystal.
Tudor now provides the new Black Bay Fifty-Eight with three different strap choices. There's the riveted satin-finished steel bracelet, the brown leather strap decorated with a folding clasp, and a black fabric strap with a gold stripe running through the center.
Surely, Tudor released a huge number of watches and the Black Bay Fifty-Eight is no exception. Perfect for those who appreciate a watch that has a vintage look, a smaller size, and a more accessible price point, the Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight will have many fans clamoring to get one on the wrist.
