TUDOR launches a new addition to the legendary Black Bay collection, tackling one of the highest technical demands in terms of chronometry and resistance to magnetic fields, to create the Black Bay Ceramic.

With pioneering technology and technical precision, this model reinvents the archetype in a totally new way while staying true to the iconic design of the original Black Bay.

In a Tudor first, the Black Bay Ceramic gained certification by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology in Bern (METAS), which in 2015 developed a new certification standard for wristwatches. The prestigious credentials require the watch to be Swiss-made, COSC certified, and pass a multitude of tests regarding power reserve, temperature precision, and waterproofness.

The TUDOR Black Bay Ceramic watch combines sophisticated technology with subtle design references. Its 41mm matt black monobloc ceramic case has sand-blasted surfaces with bevelled edges and is mirror-polished for a striking contrast. The insert of the unidirectional rotatable bezel is also in black ceramic with a sunray satin finish.

Staying true to the iconic original design, the Black Bay Ceramic adopts TUDOR’s distinctive ‘Snowflake’ hands that appeared in the brand’s 1969 catalogue. Resolutely anchored in the present, it brings together almost seven decades of TUDOR diving watches. While it is neo-vintage in conception, its manufacturing techniques and its robustness, reliability, and the quality of its finish are above modern industry standards.
