Black Bay 32mm

BLACK BAY 32 BLUE

The introduction of Black Bay 36 and 41 brought a more formal feel to the Black Bay model. TUDOR is now expanding the Black Bay range even further to include a new feminine model. A 32 mm model is being added to the existing Black Bay 41 and 36 range with an additional blue dial option, available for every case size.

As a nod to the history of the brand, which has been offering the blue dial colour in its collections ever since the 1960s, the dials of the Black Bay 41 and Black Bay 36 - black hitherto - will now also be available in a new blue version. Meticulously lacquered for a touch of elegance, the new blue dial captures the light in a spectrum of vivid electric blue to a navy so deep it is almost black. With their outstanding contrast and clarity, these shades are in keeping with Black Bay's original purpose.

Alongside the new blue dial, Black Bay is also being offered in a smaller size creating a perfectly feminine form for the first time. With its new 32 mm diameter, TUDOR's characteristic design brings all the features of a tool-watch to the feminine wrist. Refined as well as functional, the Black Bay 32 is typical of its family, historically and technically. It is waterproof to 150 metres (500 ft), has a self-winding mechanical movement and is highly legible. It has a steel case with an alternate polished and satin finish. Finally, its flat, lacquered dial is available both in black or blue. Naturally, it also has the contrasting, luminescent hour markers that are characteristic of the Black Bay line.

THE ESSENCE OF BLACK BAY

Like other models in the Black Bay line, Black Bay 41, 36 and 32 feature a dial inspired by the TUDOR divers’ watches produced during the 1950s. They adopt the characteristic angular hands known to collectors as a snowflake that appeared in the brand’s 1969 catalogue. These contemporary models also boast a large winding crown, characteristic of the first generation of TUDOR divers' watches that were waterproof to 200 metres (660 ft).

The Black Bay line is the result of the subtle blend of traditional aesthetics and contemporary watchmaking. Far from simply being an identical re-release of a classic, it brings together over 60 years of TUDOR divers' watches at the same time as being resolutely anchored in the present. Whilst it is neo-vintage in conception, its manufacturing techniques, reliability, robustness, and the quality of its finish are entirely consistent with today's more rigorous requirements.

STRAPS AND BRACELET

The Black Bay 41, 36, and 32 are supplied with a choice of a steel bracelet, a leather strap with a folding clasp, or in black fabric. Made in the Jacquard technique, a traditional method achieved by a 150-year-old family firm from the St-Etienne region of France, this strap is a signature feature of TUDOR, which is regarded as a pioneer in this area.
