Baywatch babes

| Samson Ng and Lisa Kao 19 Jul 2019

Tudor has a unique persistence in mechanical designs. The Swiss brand not only continuously invents new calibers, but also keeps abreast with techniques.

Its 2019 Black Bay Bronze is a good example. Despite having a Tudor 1960s navy watch outlook, it contains the brand's newest MT5601 caliber.

Watch straps are another focus of the brand. The NATO strap that is used on Black Bay is handmade by a famous French sewing manufacturer. The special techniques used turn the straps into collectible art pieces.

In the past, extra straps came with the watches, but customers might have to fork out money to buy them this year. And it is not too easy to get one as they are highly sought after.

Since the 1960s, Tudor has been manufacturing military diving watches. This waterproof feature is still its strong point but this year's new watches have a few surprises in functions and appearance.

As the first new Tudor landing in Hong Kong, Black Bay Bronze does not disappoint with its bronze-colored PVD-treated steel case back. Black Bay P01 was designed with a hinged end-link system, which covers a locking and dismantling system for the bezel.
