TUDOR, a brand well known for outstanding technical expertise, has taken the extra step with the latest Black Bay Ceramic. This is the first TUDOR reference to sport a Master Chronometer certification, signifying the brand’s commitment to improving the quality of its products.

To ensure the Master Chronometer certification, TUDOR made significant changes to its calibre MT5602-1U movement. The certification process is comprehensive as it gets, covering all the main functions of the watch from precision to resistance, waterproofness, and power reserve with incredibly high standards. To qualify the watch must be able to function within a 5-second range of variation every day (0+5), an outstanding achievement that is 5-seconds less than the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institutes (-4 +6).

Stealthy and sleek, the contemporary look is very fitting for today’s market. It’s a technical piece that manages to transition seamlessly between the boardroom and beach with its matt black monochromatic ceramic case and pronounced combination of brushed and mirror finishes.  TUDOR notes the resurgence of the NATO strap by including a matching cream striped alternative in the box.

While the model is a step forward in precision, the Black Bay Ceramic keeps classic TUDOR characteristics alive with angular ‘Snowflake’ hands that first appeared in the 1969 catalogue. Blending both traditional aesthetics and contemporary watchmaking together the 2021 TUDOR Black Bay Ceramic is far from a re-release, it’s the result of 70-years of TUDOR dive watches.
