Tudor comes to Only Watch 2019 with a first for the brand — a Black Bay in full ceramic. That, however it’s completely, and I mean completely, blacked out. The case is the recognizable Black Bay shape, yet in a smooth, globule impacted black fired. The dial, hands, and hour markers are black too. Differentiation for decipherability, doubtlessly, is given by a gleam finish to the lume-filled records, however let’s face it: if you’re a genuine bidder for this watch, clarity probably won’t be your essential concern.
Taken together, the introduction is ultra present day and dissimilar to any Black Bay we’ve seen previously, in spite of the fact that it could well be viewed as a cousin of the Black Bay Dark, presented in 2016. In any case, that was a PVD-treated steel case with brilliant white hour markers and hands. It even had a dash of red content on the dial. The Black Bay Ceramic One is an entire other pot of fish.
One of the most delightful plan addresses the watch is the open caseback, something we just don’t see a lot of in Tudor’s apparatus watch arrangement. It flaunts the in-house MT5602 type pleasantly, which presently, obviously, highlights a black fired (and skeletonized) winding rotor.
While the Only Watch unique cases are all the time that, it’s worth seeing that, now and again, an exceptional piece making its introduction at this closeout fills in as a springboard to a customary creation model some place down the line. The utilization of fired as the essential case material by Tudor in this Black Bay positively gets the brain attempting to concoct what they may have coming up for shoppers a year or two as it were.
The Black Bay Ceramic One is recorded with a gauge of $4,500-$5,500. In the event that you’re considering offering and killing a deal, review that the Tudor Black Bay One, the brand’s 2015 introduction section in the Only Watch sell off, pounded at 375,000 Swiss Francs, around multiple times its unique gauge.
The Only Watch sale will be held in Geneva on November 9. You can see the entirety of this year’s remarkable pieces at the Only Watch site, here .
