Tudor 2016 Basel News – Black Bay Bronze – Black Bay Dark PVD case – in 41 mm with chronometer Tudor movement! Let’s just hope the PVD case coating is strong enough for using this as a daily beater. Normally PVD is quite soft and many watch brands have used the harder DLC coatings or even special ceramic cases. Maybe the trick with PVD and Tudor is the same as with the bronze, the patina ( & scratches ) will be visible by every owner differently otherwise I can’t explain this historic coating.

Besides the brown insert, you also see the brown dial when the light hits in there…

 

I like the beveled chamfers and the whole in the case for the push pins, nice heritage details! Well done Tudor

For a ladies wrist it’s a bit to big but then this is a real mans watch. The bronze case will patinate on each wrist differently!..

I still believe that with pencil hands this design could become a real classic like I show you in my photoshop below. For insiders and collectors it’s now a bit a mix of styles that historically don’t go together. Once you don’t know, you will most probably like the snowflake hands 😉

Tudor has become the modern vintage Rolex. I just wonder why they keep the prices so low now it’s all in-house ? RPR_Schermafbeelding 2016-03-16 om 10.28.50
