The Tudor Black Bay GMT model has been with us since 2018. Inspired by vintage Tudor watches from the 1950s and 60s, it has a classic and elegant look with a bold red and blue Pepsi bezel, reminiscent of the iconic Rolex GMT-Master. Five years after its introduction, the model gets a facelift and remains an exciting and attractive timepiece for its functionality and design. And mostly, it gets the polar white dial that some were expecting from the Crown. And still, it looks very good.
The New Tudor Black Bay GMT gets an all-new silvery-opaline dial – yes, the so-called polar white – and the matte version of the deep-blue and burgundy rotating bezel, the rest, including performance and valuable features, remains pretty much as in the earlier edition. The case is 41mm stainless steel; the watch is 200m water-resistant; the GMT complication allows it to keep track of multiple time zones. The robust in-house automatic COSC-certified Calibre MT5652 with a silicon balance spring does the job perfectly and would keep the watch running for 70 hours when fully wound.
The Tudor Black Bay GMT is a versatile watch and can be worn on any occasion, and the wearer has a choice of a stainless steel three-link “rivet-style” bracelet or a Jacquard-woven black strap with a burgundy stripe in the middle. The new Black Bay GMT version will set you back CHF 4,100 if you favour a bracelet and CHF 3,800 should you opt for a strap. For more information, please visit www.tudorwatch.com
