Tudor, one of the leaders of its category, offers two versions of its popular model Black Bay Chrono equipped with new dials within the scope of Watches & Wonders 2021. We leave you with a review of this successful model, which we put to a short-term test.
Tudor is one of the most ambitious brands in the watch category, from its history to material quality, from engineering details to its characterful designs. The Black Bay Chrono model, the chronograph timepiece adorned with vintage inspirations, has also attracted a great deal of attention from watch enthusiasts since its debut.
The guest of our Hands-On corner is the Tudor Black Bay Chrono "Panda" model introduced today.
With a 41mm diameter stainless steel case, the feel of the model on the wrist is that it is a watch larger than 41mm. The model, which offers sapphire crystal glass and a water resistance value of up to 200 meters, has a screw-on crown and chronograph pushers. The tachymetric scale on the black bakelite bezel matches with the sporty character of the model. The model, offering a balanced dial structure with a bi-compax chronograph layout, comes in black and white color options. The dial layout is called Panda due to the contrasting sub-dials on the dial background. The date display at 6 o'clock is a detail that increases the usefulness. My only criticism here is the lack of a black date disk with white fonts for the black dial version.
The Tudor Black Bay Chrono works with the in-house automatic Caliber MT5813, just like the other models in the same series. C.O.S.C. certified movement offers 70 hours of power reserve.
The watches are available with a stainless steel bracelet as well as leather and NATO straps. The rivet heads on the sides of the bracelet links boost the retro appearance of the watch.
Tudor Black Bay Chrono is one of the leading models among modern watches that are candidates to become cult. If you care about things such as looking bold without sacrificing comfort, offering simplicity and sportiness together, and not compromising on elegance, this watch might be just for you.
