Christmas Calendar 5: Gift ideas: Tudor “Black Bay Bronze”
Tudor´s Black Bay Bronze model measures 33.8 millimetres, the widest diameter of all the company´s calibres. The watch´s rotor is “satin-brushed with sand-blasted details, and its bridges and plate have alternating polished sand-blasted surfaces and laser decorations.”
It displays the hours, minutes and seconds functions and it has 70-hour power reserve.
-As a tribute to the brand’s naval heritage, Tudor has identified the historic uses of its watches and reinterpreted them in its latest models. For example, the French Navy had Tudor watches delivered without bracelets and then fitted them with their own straps. One of them, kept in the brand’s archives, is made of elastic recovered from French rescue parachutes. This ultra-functional relic, recognisable by its gold-coloured thread, is the reference behind the slate-grey woven jacquard strap available for the Black Bay Bronze, the company tells about the history.
