THE NEW TUDOR
BLACK BAY CERAMIC
The Tudor Standard
The Black Bay Ceramic is a prime example of TUDOR's expertise in commanding one of the industry's most demanding standards in terms of chronometry and resistance to magnetic fields. Tested by the Federal Institute of Metrology or METAS, this Black Bay model is the epitome of high-tech aesthetic language. Its matt black ceramic elements and black Manufacture Calibre accentuate the Black Bay Ceramic’s outstanding performance.
Comprehensive Independent Certification
& High Standards
TUDOR has successfully submitted its Black Bay Ceramic model for tests to obtain a Master Chronometer certification as part of a constant bid to improve the quality of its products. This is the first application of this standard to a watch in the TUDOR collection. This certification, which requires a substantial number of changes to the TUDOR Manufacture Calibre, means that TUDOR has been recognised by an independent body for the excellent quality of its watches.
The Master Chronometer Certification
In orfer to obtain the METAS Master Chronometer certification there are two prerequisites to be met: the watch has to be Swiss Made, and the movement certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). In addition, it should also meet the standards of these main functional characteristics:
Three Bracelet Designs
The Black Bay Chrono comes with a choice of a riveted steel bracelet with polished and satin finish, a bund in aged black leather with ecru topstitching and folding clasp, or a black strap with a motif chosen by TUDOR and woven by the craftsmen of Julien Faure. Made using the Jacquard technique, a traditional method achieved by the hundred-year-old family business from the St-Etienne region of France.
