Introducing the TUDOR Black Bay Fifty-Eight "Navy Blue"

Today TUDOR unveiled the latest addition to the brand's flagship Black Bay collection with the Black Bay Fifty-Eight "Navy Blue".

The watch takes its name not only from its colour but also from the year 1958, in which the first TUDOR diver's watch waterproof to 200 metres (660ft) was presented.

The new TUDOR Black Bay Fifty-Eight “Navy Blue” is a nod to the historic 1958 "Big Crown" model and offers a 39mm diameter case in keeping with the characteristic proportions of the 1950s. Ideal for slim wrists, people who like more compact watches and vintage enthusiasts. The Black Bay Fifty-Eight "Navy Blue" also carries on the long TUDOR tradition of blue sport watches.

History of the “TUDOR Blue”

In 1969, TUDOR introduced a diver's watch with a blue dial and bezel. The other sports watches in the collection were attired in blue soon after, creating a lasting aesthetic hallmark known as "TUDOR Blue". Adopted by the French navy for its TUDOR diver's watches during the 1970's, this livery became part of the collective imagination. Today, the Black Bay Fifty-Eight "Navy Blue" follows in this tradition with its navy blue dial and bezel, along with a choice of steel bracelet, "soft touch" strap or Jacquard fabric strap.

The Essence of the Black Bay

Like other models in the Black Bay range, the Black Bay Fifty-Eight “Navy Blue” adopts TUDOR’s characteristic angular hands known as “Snowflake” which first appeared in the brand’s 1969 catalogue and offers the wearer optimum readability.

The result of a subtle blend of traditional aesthetics and contemporary watchmaking, the Black Bay line is far from offering identical re-releases of classics. Resolutely anchored in the present, it brings together seven decades of TUDOR divers’ watches. Whilst it is neo-vintage in style, its manufacturing techniques and its robustness, reliability, durability and precision as well as the quality of its finishing are above current industry standards.
