Lot Essay

TUDOR announces the Black Bay GMT One for Only Watch 2021, a unique execution of its Black Bay GMT, complete with aged case, bracelet and movement as well as Master Chronometer certification.

For Only Watch 2021, TUDOR has created a unique Black Bay GMT with a striking case and bracelet finish that is the result of a secret stainless-steel ageing technique. The MT5652 Manufacture Calibre powering this unique watch, capable of keeping track of time in three time zones simultaneously, also received an aesthetic treatment to match the case in style that required the bridges and mainplate to be coated in black before being aged by barrel tumbling.

The Black Bay GMT One is a Master Chronometer, one of the industry's most demanding certified standards, guaranteeing Swiss manufacturing, precision of 5 seconds (0 +5), anti-magnetism to 15’000 gauss, stated water-resistance and stated power-reserve. Achieving this certification required a substantial number of changes to the TUDOR Manufacture calibre and highlights the brand's technical expertise and know-how.

HISTORY OF THE BRAND
The origins of the brand date back to 1926, when ‘The TUDOR’ was first registered on behalf of the founder of Rolex, Hans Wilsdorf. He created the Montres TUDOR SA Company in 1946 to offer watches with the quality and dependability of a Rolex, at a more accessible price point. As a result, over the course of history, TUDOR watches became the choice of daring individuals. Today, the TUDOR collection includes flagship lines such as Black Bay, Pelagos and Royal. Since 2021, TUDOR offers some of its watches with Master Chronometer certification by METAS.
