Tudor presents a new addition to the Black Bay line that embodies the purest modern expression of the brand’s first-ever diver’s watch, the the reference 7922, which was released in 1954.
The Tudor Black Bay 54 with its 37mm case retains the classic proportions of its predecessor, yet boasts the technical prowess of Tudor’s time-only Manufacture Calibre MT5400 and a 200m depth rating.
Its unidirectional bezel is devoid of any graduated hash marks, echoing the days of the early ’50 when SCUBA diving was in its infancy and back then, Tudor produced a watch for those daring enough to engage with the burgeoning sport.
The seconds hand recalls the look of the original with a lollipop design. Ergonomics have evolved as well, with a redesigned crown and bezel, both featuring historical proportions.
