The Tudor Know-How
The Black Bay Fifty-Eight Bronze is a spectacular example of the craftmanship TUDOR invests in its timepieces. The choice of bronze requires extensive processes and no fewer than forty additional steps to craft each case, which is further complicated by the fact that bronze is a material whose appearance evolves rapidly according to its environment. Meticulous care is taken handle each watch, preserving its new, non-patinated appearance.
A “Living” Metal
This new iteration of the Black Bay Fifty-Eight comes in a 39 mm bronze case, with aesthetic nods to the bronze used in naval, deep-sea diving equipment of old, as well as the the characteristic proportions of watches from the 1950s. A high-performance aluminium bronze alloy typically used in naval engineering, it is particularly resistant to corrosion. A subtle and unique patina develops over time to match its owner's habits and with its "brown-bronze" dial and gold accented hands and hour markers, creates a visual effect of a rich, lustrous timepiece, one that is unique to every person and their lifestyle.
