Tudor, the brand that likes to bill themselves as the “affordable subsidiary of Rolex”, has launched 5 variations of existing models. To the surprise of exactly no one, they are all named “Black Bay”.
- Black Bay Chrono (in white panda, or black panda)
- Black Bay 58 in 18k gold (with green dial and bezel, and a display case back)
- Black Bay 58 in 925 silver (with taupe dial and bezel)
- Black Bay 32mm, 36mm, 41mm, with a silver-colored dial (instead of the usual black dial)
- Tudor 1926 (as the name suggests, a classic-inspired Tudor watch)
The chronographs are the the first Panda style we’ve seen from Tudor in years, following the Tudor Tiger versions of the 90s/2000s. They are said to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Tudor having made chronographs.
The Black Bay 925 in silver is the first TUDOR divers’ watch to be made in silver and to offer an open case back.
The Black Bay 58 18k is, unsurprisingly, the first TUDOR divers’ watch to be made in 18k and to offer an open case back. The dial color is described as “Golden Green”.
The Black Bay 32, 36, and 41 gets a silver-colored dial in brushed sunray pattern.
The Tudor 1926 comes in white dial with gold or blue indices, or black dial with silver indices. It is available in a wide range of sizes, from 41, 39, 36 or 28 mm.
