If you’re an avid reader of HiConsumption, you’re likely acquainted with our love for everything black. Whether it’s a utilitarian EDC accessory, a piece of stylish clothing, or an example of iconic wristwear, our attraction toward the “murdered out” aesthetic never ceases — making Tudor’s new Black Bay Ceramic One a primary candidate for adoration.
As part of the company’s contribution to the 2019 Only Watch auction, this stealthy timepiece takes a step well into the realm of luxury, removing the traditional 41mm stainless steel case and instead opting for a matte black ceramic housing — making it the first Black Bay watch to get a case of this kind. It has also received a PVD treatment on both the case back and crown, helping to protect the company’s MT5602 movement. To round things out, a black alligator/rubber strap has been paired with the company’s black PVD-treated clasp — giving the watch a sleek, mysterious presence that’s as attractive as it is daunting. You’ll have the chance to pick up the one-of-a-kind Black Bay Ceramic One for around $4,500 on November 9 — but only if you’re willing to fly out to Switzerland for the annual Only Watch auction.
