A prime example of TUDOR's expert command of one of the industry's most demanding standards in terms of chronometry and resistance to magnetic fields. Tested by the Federal Institute of Metrology or METAS, this Black Bay model is the epitome of high-tech aesthetic language.

TUDOR has successfully submitted its Black Bay Ceramic model for tests to obtain a Master Chronometer certification as part of a constant bid to improve the quality of its products. This is the first application of this standard to a watch in the TUDOR collection. This certification, which requires a substantial number of changes to the TUDOR Manufacture Calibre, will mean that TUDOR will be able to offer accreditation by an independent body, confirming the excellent quality of its watches.
The TUDOR Black Bay Ceramic combines contemporary, high-tech details with subtle references to its heritage. Its matt black monobloc ceramic case has sand-blasted surfaces with bevelled edges, mirror-polished for a striking contrast, finished with very pronounced lines. The insert of its rotatable bezel is also in black ceramic with a sunray satin finish. The only contrast being its applied on the hour markers with off-white luminescent material. Finally, a hybrid leather and rubber strap, with a "Snowflake" motif on the inside and folding clasp, as well as a complimentary black fabric strap with cream band completes the stealthy black look of this model.
