Tudor Elevates The Black Bay With A Ceramic Case & METAS Certification

May 25, 2021

Ever since making its debut in 2012, Tudor’s Black Bay line of divers has come to dominate the brand’s lineup. From the vintage-style Black Bay Fifty-EIght and GMT to this year’s revised Black Bay Chronograph and solid silver and gold watches, Tudor just can’t seem to stop making compelling new Black Bays. And now the brand is going to the BB well once again for the Black Bay Ceramic.

The Tudor Black Bay Ceramic is not just bringing ceramic to the bezel of the diver, it’s gone full-ceramic for the case — a first for a Tudor production model. The 41mm watch is executed in a matte black ceramic case with a matching bezel to go along with the familiar domed sapphire crystal, snowflake hands, and oversized crown. The caseback is black PVD stainless steel with a sapphire exhibition caseback through which the in-house Calibre MT5602-1U can be observed. The movement is even more impressive than the case, as it’s Tudor’s first METAS-certified Master Chronometer. The stringent METAS qualifications require the watch to resist 15,000 gausses of magnetic fields, as well as exhibit COSC levels of precision at various temperatures, positions, and power levels, among other tests. The Tudor Black Bay Ceramic comes on a hybrid leather-rubber strap with an additional one-piece fabric strap and it’s available now for $4,725.

Purchase: $4,725
