There can never be enough Black Bay watches – at least that’s what TUDOR seems to think. And we have to say, we’re okay with that. Because among their lineup of new watches for Baselworld 2019 are six new (and very different) iterations of this iconic sports watch, including the new two-tone Tudor Black Bay S&G, which comes in 3 different sizes, and with a surprise dial and bracelet.
A Growing Collection of Tudor Black Bay Watches
It’s crazy to think of how quickly this watch has taken off. The Black Bay was only introduced in 2012 – the modern answer to the vintage-inspired tool watch. And today, it not only has a loyal fanbase, but a ton of variations to choose from within the collection. Now, TUDOR is just giving the people what they want: more Black Bay’s to love and collect, including new non-dive watch versions of the S&G, which feature the option of either a black or champagne dial.
If you already loved the elevated look of the Black Bay S&G presented last year, and are a fan of the non-dive watch Black Bay variations, you’re going to swoon over the new two-tone additions to the lineup. Not only has the stainless steel and yellow gold case been given an equally-fancy champagne colored dial (a black dial version is also available), but the gold stationary bezel sans-numbers has been given a satin finish for a clean-shaven look. While the Black Bay is inherently a tool watch at heart, the model presented at Baselworld really shows off a more refined side to the famous model.
Dressy Tool Watches
The new Black Bay S&G watches are the kind of timepieces that are going to look great for any occasion and withstand just about any situation, too. Obviously the two-tone look makes them easy to dress up and down, but the combination of a workhorse automatic Caliber 2824 inside and 150-meter water resistance also makes them true tool watches.
But the addition that really stands out to us is the new the five-ink stainless steel and yellow gold bracelet. It reminds you a bit of the stately Jubilee, right? Fitting, as TUDOR is a subsidiary of the crown prince, Rolex. It’s this final feature that really puts the S&G over the top – making it feel much more dressy than sporty. But, that’s okay with us; because while it looks elegant, it has Black Bay heritage backing it up and guaranteeing robust performance.
Tudor Black Bay S&G Watches in 3 Different Sizes
To ensure that the new Black Bay S&G watches will work well on every wrist, TUDOR is offering them in 3 different sizes: a petite 32mm for women (ref. M79583-0002), the unisex 36mm (ref. M79503-0002), and the large 41mm (ref. M79543-0002). Additionally, all three sizes are available with the option of either a black or champagne colored dial.
