Before this spring, we highlighted the handsome Black Bay Fifty-Eight 925, which combined traditional layout hallmarks like snowflake arms with a new silver case and an open up case back—both firsts for the brand’s dive watches. But that was just the starting: The brand name also released the Tudor Black Bay Ceramic, a a bit larger sized timepiece that options a hugely precise movement and a modern, blacked-out colour scheme.

 

 

A approximately all-black look at could conclusion up on the lookout like a lump of coal on your wrist, but the Black Bay Ceramic utilizes unique black elements and finishes to produce a monochrome aesthetic that’s sophisticated and attention-grabbing. The 41mm case is built from matte black ceramic, and comes with mirror-concluded beveled edges that provide a good visible distinction from the sand-blasted surfaces of the rest of the case. The bezel is also ceramic, but it has a sunray end that accentuates the dial and will help it stand out from the case. The bezel markings are engraved with out any colour, which tends to make this much less handy as a utilitarian dive look at, but it does preserve the concentrate on the matte black dial, where the off-white Tremendous-LumiNova snowflake arms and indices consider heart phase.

That monochrome colour scheme will get picked up on the straps, too: The look at is concluded with possibly a black hybrid leather-based-rubber strap with white stitching or a black fabric strap with a product stripe managing down the center. The conclusion final result? A black look at that does just about anything but fade into the qualifications.

And like the Black Bay Fifty-Eight, it options a “weekend proof” 70-hour energy reserve, so you can park it on your desk on Friday and it’ll nevertheless be ticking on Monday.

The case back gives a peek at the movement’s internals, which are concluded in black and attribute sand-blasted and satin-brushed finishes. No make any difference which way you seem at, while, the Black Bay Ceramic proves that delicate can be captivating.
