To mark the Rugby World Cup 2019 and celebrate its partnership with New Zealand’s national rugby team, TUDOR presents Black Bay Chrono Dark Ref. 79360DK in a limited edition. This special edition of the TUDOR Black Bay Chrono Dark model is available in Zagreb, in Mamić 1970 boutique.
Tudor Black Bay Chrono Dark Ref. 79360DK – One player, one watch
To celebrate the All Blacks legacy and mark the Rugby World Cup 2019 (RWC) as the team will defend its back-to-back champions title, TUDOR is launching the Black Bay Chrono Dark Ref. 79360DK, a new black version – matching the All Blacks’ famous jersey – of its chronograph, fitted with a Manufacture Calibre with column wheel and vertical clutch. Unusually for TUDOR, the new model is a limited edition: a watch to pay tribute to every player who has been selected for New Zealand’s national rugby team from its creation in 1884 to the RWC 2019, or 1181 timepieces at the time of writing. The number will be adjusted according to the final composition of the World Cup team. The series will grow over the coming years as new players join the ranks of the All Blacks.
The Black Bay Chrono Dark Ref. 79360DK features a characteristic satin-brushed steel bracelet for a matt effect, finished with a black PVD-treated coating. Directly derived from the thin-film technology originally developed by NASA for its various space programmes, PVD, or Physical Vapour Deposition, enables practically any inorganic material to be bonded with metals. Of course, the colour choice is a reference to the All Blacks team that TUDOR has been supporting since 2017, reinforced by the presence of a special engraving on the case back indicating the serial number of each timepiece.
Manufacture Chronograph Calibre MT5813
Boasting a 70-hour power reserve, a silicon balance spring and a certification by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute, the Manufacture chronograph Calibre MT5813 that drives the Black Bay Chrono Dark Ref. 79360DK is a high-performance movement. It has been crafted in the purest watchmaking tradition, with column wheel mechanism and vertical clutch. In keeping with the TUDOR philosophy of quality, it presents extraordinary robustness and reliability, guaranteed by an array of extreme tests applied to all TUDOR products. Derived from the Manufacture chronograph Calibre Breitling 01, with a high-precision regulating organ developed by TUDOR and dedicated finishes, the movement is the result of a lasting collaboration between the two brands. They have chosen to pool their expertise in the design and production of certain mechanical movements so that both parties can benefit from their use.
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.
