Since its founding in 1926, TUDOR has endeavoured to produce the best possible watches at the best possible price. This mission, bold then as it is now, is inspired by the vision of the brand’s founder Hans Wilsdorf. The inventor of several cornerstones of modern fine watchmaking – wristwatch precision, waterproofness and the self-winding mechanism – Wilsdorf dreamed of devising a watch that was technically perfect while remaining affordable, and so created the TUDOR brand to bring his dream alive. The Black Bay 41, 36 and 32 models form part of this uncompromising heritage, promising their future owners no less than the best possible quality at the best possible price.
Made from a block of one of the most robust stainless steels in existence, 316L steel, this model’s case is waterproof to 150 metres (500 feet) thanks to its screw-down crown and case-back. The movement – the pinnacle of Swiss watchmaking expertise – is finely decorated despite not being visible and is adjusted to the highest chronometry standards in the watchmaking industry. The hands and black or blue lacquered or silver dials, are crafted by the most meticulous professionals in the field with applique hour markers and Swiss Super-LumiNova® phosphorescent material. Finally, the metal bracelet stands out, thanks to the quality of its design, manufacturing and finish. All these things and more come together to produce the famous TUDOR quality, a philosophy summarised by the brand’s signature, #BornToDare – always striving to do better.
