What is about a two-tone watch that is at once so mesmerizing and nostalgic? A single glance at the distinctive gold and steel bracelet calls to mind timepieces from years past that somehow maintain a connection to the present. There’s no debate if the two-tone look will stand the test of time – it already has.
Already one of the most popular watches in our store, the Black Bay is a killer piece in all its variations. When the 41mm Steel and Gold variant came along in 2017, it was an instant hit and heralded the return to style of the two-tone aesthetic. After a long time in the wilderness, steel and gold watches have made a roaring comeback with one manufacturer after another bringing new two-tone offerings to their lineups. So imagine our glee when this incredible piece found its way into our pre-owned case!
The dignified bracelet stands out at any angle with a three-link pattern, contrasted between steel and gold tones while the domed sapphire crystal protects the Black Bay’s dark dial which is marked with a gold minute track and lumed applied indices. Of course, this wouldn’t be a BB without Tudor’s signature “snowflake” hands, shaped as they are with gold-tone metals. And with 200M of water resistance, the 70 hour power-reserve, in-house COSC-certified automatic movement leads the pack at this price-point, made even more attractive by the pre-owned discount!
