Introducing the TUDOR Black Bay Ceramic

An extraordinary watch and symbol of the brand’s technical expertise, the new TUDOR Black Bay Ceramic is a prime example of TUDOR’s expert command of one of the industry’s most demanding standards in terms of chronometry and resistance to magnetic fields.

Tested by the Federal Institute of Metrology or METAS, this Black Bay model is the epitome of high-tech aesthetic. Its matt black ceramic case and Manufacture Calibre works together to accentuate the outstanding performance of the TUDOR Black Bay Ceramic.

Master Chronometer Certification

As part of a constant bid to improve the quality of its products, TUDOR has successfully obtained a Master Chronometer certification for the Black Bay Ceramic - the first application of this standard to a watch in the TUDOR collection. 

Covering the main functional characteristics of a watch including precision, resistance to magnetic fields, waterproofness and power reserve, the METAS Master Chronometer certification is comprehensive and its standards are incredibly high.

Two prerequisites are necessary before the certification can be obtained:

  • Swiss manufacturing must conform with the criteria of being Swiss Made.
  • The movement must be certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).

The TUDOR Black Bay Ceramic also stands out for providing:

  • Precision at two temperatures, in six different positions and at two levels of power reserve: 100% and 33%.
  • Smooth functioning when exposed to a magnetic field of 15,000 gauss and precision following exposure
  • Waterproof to 200m (660ft) in accordance with ISO standard 22810:2010
  • 70-hour power reserve

High-Tech Look

Aesthetically, the TUDOR Black Bay Ceramic watch combines contemporary, high-tech details with subtle references to its heritage. Its matt black Monobloc ceramic case has sand-blasted surfaces with bevelled edges, mirror polished for striking contrast, and is finished with very pronounced lines. The insert of its rotatable bezel is also in black ceramic with a sunray satin finish. The engraved graduations in matching tones offer a complementary additional matt detail which responds subtly to changes in light. Its dial is also black on black, the only contrast being its applied hour markers with off-white phosphorescent material. Finally, a hybrid leather and rubber strap, black of course, with a “Snowflake” motif on the inside and folding clasp, as well as a complimentary black fabric strap with cream band completes the stealthy black look of this model.

Manufacture Calibre MT5602-1U

Displaying hour, minute and second functions, the TUDOR Black Bay Ceramic watch is powered by a Manufacture Calibre MT5602-1U movement. With the finish typical of TUDOR Manufacture Calibres but entirely in black. The build is designed to ensure robustness and precision, as is its variable inertia balance, which is maintained by a sturdy traversing bridge with two-point fixing. Together with its non-magnetic silicon hairspring, the Manufacture Calibre MT5602-1U is able to function within a tolerance range of 5 seconds (0 +5).

The power reserve of the Manufacture Calibre MT5602-1U is “weekend-proof”. That is to say, it has been certified for 70 hours by METAS, which enables you to take the watch off on a Friday evening, and put it back on again on Monday morning without having to wind it: so even if you need a weekend away, your watch does not.
