Precious Diver: Tudor Launches the Black Bay 58 18K

Tudor celebrates its iconic Black Bay watch this year with a new all-gold version. Launched at Watches and Wonders 2024, the Black Bay 58 18k is presented in a 38mm satin-brushed yellow gold case and complemented by a solid gold three-link bracelet. The warm hue of the precious metal is paired with a green dial and bezel, taking the coveted tool watch look to new aesthetic heights. Another first is the open caseback. It brings the Manufacture MT5400 caliber to the fore.

The latest version of Tudor’s first diver’s watch, introduced in 1958, incorporates all the hallmark features that fans of the Black Bay have come to admire: The snowflake hands introduced in 1969, water resistance to 200 meters (660 feet), applied bold hour markers that combine round and rectangular shapes with a triangle at 12 o’clock, and the domed sapphire crystal that protects the luminous dial as well as the bezel with a luminous dot at 12 o’clock.

For the first time in a Tudor diver’s watch, the case back is not closed, but fitted with a sapphire crystal disc to reveal the manufacture movement inside.

Tried-and-tested is the powerhouse within the Black Bay 58 18K that can be admired through this exhibition case back, the C.O.S.C.-certified manufacture Calibre MT5400 with 70 hours of power reserve.

Pricing is set at $32,100.
