Back in Black

DA MAN - - Watches -

At this year’s Basel­world fair, Tu­dor in­tro­duced an ad­di­tional model as part of its Black Bay line, dubbed the Black Bay FiftyEight, whose di­men­sions are sim­i­lar to the brand’s first divers’ watches. The name comes from the year when the brand’s first divers’ watches that are wa­ter­proof to 200 me­ters was in­tro­duced, namely the ref­er­ence 7924, which was dubbed the “Big Crown.” The Black Bay Fifty-Eight fea­tures a dial in­spired by the Tu­dor divers’ watches pro­duced back in the 1950s and then adopted the char­ac­ter­is­tic an­gu­lar hands known to many col­lec­tors as “snowflake,” which, in turn, ap­peared in Tu­dor’s 1969 cat­a­logue. Over­all, this watch is the re­sult of the sub­tle blend of tra­di­tional aes­thet­ics and con­tem­po­rary watch­mak­ing.
