Wanderlust: Tudor Black Bay Pro Makes for a Great Travel Companion

Probably one of the most sought-after launches from Tudor this year is an all-new GMT sports watch: the Black Bay Pro. Despite the more moderate diameter of 39mm, it portrays the unique 60’s retro tool watch design that fans of the Rolex sister brand admire, provides a water resistance of 200 meters, a magnificent domed matte black dial and adds to this a useful “flyer” GMT function.

When traveling, the yellow 24-hour angular yellow “Snowflake” hand displays the home time in concert with the hour indexes engraved on the fixed stainless-steel bezel. The local time is indicated by the shorter “Snowflake” hand set by a jumping hour, which can be smartly moved either backwards or forwards. The date indication at 3 o’clock is coupled with the local time hand.

This is made possible by the C.O.S.C. chronometer certified manufacture Caliber MT5652 with a built-in GMT function specifically developed for the Black Bay Pro. Rather than adding a module the base caliber’s architecture allows for the technical integration of the complication. As is de rigueur for a Tudor genuine caliber, it amasses a “weekend-proof” power reserve of 70 hours. Retail starts from $3,675.
