At Baselworld 2018, Tudor showed us various new watches. There’s another Black Bay GMT with a Pepsi-esque bezel that we will cover instantly, yet the watch that stood apart to our group was somewhat of an astonishment: the new Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight.
To be straightforward, the expansion of the Black Bay setup since its presentation in 2012 has been out and out voluminous. There are models with dates, without dates, bi-shading, PVD, bronze, and even a chronograph that appeared a year ago. Along these lines, this year, when the Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight appeared on the screen during the yearly public interview, we accepted that the model was just a shading variation utilizing a current case and development. Unmistakably, we weren’t right and what we really saw could very well be the most advantageous Black Bay on the market.
We were given some set of experiences by the brand that clarified how in 1958, the primary Tudor Submariner was delivered. Similar as its Rolex brethren, the watch had no crown monitors, contained an overlaid dial, and a red triangle at 12:00 on the bezel. The reference 7924, as it was called, was around for a brief timeframe and these watches can command 6-figures today. With the Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight, the brand hopes to channel probably a portion of the first styling, yet in an all-new case and utilizing an all new movement.
Versus the average 41mm Black Bay case, the new Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight comes in at 39mm. All the more critically, however, the thickness drops by a considerable sum. While I didn’t have my calipers with me, the change is huge and it tends to somewhat of a show halting point for me on the other, thicker case. On the off chance that you need to know how it wears, the best comparison I can make is a compelling one; it wears like the Rolex Submariner 14060M (or anything preceding the blocky cases we’ve seen since the current models).
Ostensibly, the brand had the option to accomplish this by means of the utilization of another development, the in-house MT5402. This is a slimmer programmed development that is 26mm in distance across, has a 70-hour power hold, runs at 28,800 bph, contains a non-attractive silicone balance spring, and is chronometer guaranteed. In this design, fortunately, there’s no date complication. Water opposition is kept up at 200M.
Moving to the dial, the Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight carries an overlaid look to a matte black foundation. The hands, applied lists and composing are totally projected in the natural gold tone. The equivalent goes for the numbers and hash blemishes on the aluminum decorate bezel. To be perfectly honest, there’s nothing notable dial-wise, yet it’s however alluring and wearable as it seemed to be almost 7 years prior. Some other welcome changes are the evacuation of the hued crown tube and the incorporation of an embellished Tudor Rose on the crown itself.
The Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight is accessible on a bolted shellfish style wristband at 3400 CHF, an earthy colored cowhide lash with collapsing fasten at 3100 CHF, or a texture tie at 3100 CHF. At this value, it’s a persuading discharge. On the off chance that our Instagram post with this watch is of any sign, the slimmer case and more seasoned feel will evoke an emotional response from a ton of purchasers who have been trusting that their interests will be addressed. For my cash, this could possibly be the best watch in the brand’s portfolio.
