The introduction of Black Bay 36 Ref. 79500 brought a more formal feel to the Black Bay model with an additional blue dial option, available for every case size.
Tudor Black Bay 36 Ref. 79500
As a nod to the history of the brand, which has been offering the blue dial colour in its collections ever since the 1960s, the dial of the Black Bay 36 Ref. 79500 – black hitherto – is now also available in a new blue version. Meticulously lacquered for a touch of elegance, the new blue dial captures the light in a spectrum of vivid electric blue to a navy so deep it is almost black. With their outstanding contrast and clarity, these shades are in keeping with Black Bay’s original purpose.
The essence of Black Bay
Like other models in the Black Bay line, Black Bay 36 Ref. 79500 features a dial inspired by the Tudor divers’ watches produced during the 1950s. This model adopted the characteristic angular hands known to collectors as snowflake that appeared in the brand’s 1969 catalogue. This contemporary model also boast a large winding crown, characteristic of the first generation of Tudor divers’ watches that were waterproof to 200 metres (660 ft).
The Black Bay line is the result of the subtle blend of traditional aesthetics and contemporary watchmaking. Far from simply being an identical re-release of a classic, it brings together over 60 years of Tudor divers’ watches at the same time as being resolutely anchored in the present. Whilst it is neo-vintage in conception, its manufacturing techniques, reliability, robustness, and the quality of its finish are entirely consistent with today’s more rigorous requirements.
Straps and bracelets
The Black Bay 36 Ref. 79500 is supplied with a choice of a steel bracelet, a cognac-brown leather strap, and a vintage brown leather strap with a folding clasp, or in black fabric. Made in the Jacquard technique, a traditional method achieved by a 150-year-old family firm from the St-Etienne region of France, this strap is a signature feature of Tudor, which is regarded as a pioneer in this area.
Tudor is Born To Dare
In 2017, Tudor launched a new campaign with the “Born To Dare” signature. It reflects both the history of the brand and what it stands for today. It tells the adventures of individuals who have achieved the extraordinary on land, on ice, in the air or underwater, with a Tudor watch on their wrists. It also refers to the vision of Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Tudor, who manufactured Tudor watches to withstand the most extreme conditions, watches made for the most daring lifestyles. It is testimony to Tudor’s singular approach to watchmaking, which has made it what it is today. At the cutting edge of the watchmaking industry, its innovations are now essential benchmarks. The Tudor “Born To Dare” spirit is supported throughout the world by first class ambassadors, whose life achievements result directly from a daring approach to life.
Tudor is a Swiss made watch brand, offering mechanical watches with sophisticated style, proven reliability and unique value for money. The origins of the Tudor 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. Throughout their history, Tudor watches have been chosen by the boldest adventurers and seasoned professionals alike. Today, the Tudor collection includes emblematic lines such as Black Bay, Heritage, Pelagos, Glamour and 1926 and, since 2015, it has offered mechanical manufacture movements with many diverse functions.
