2021 Tudor Black Bay 58 Bronze (Ref. 79012) W/ Box & Papers
One of the most anticipated watches of 2018, the Tudor Black Bay 58 was created in response to the immense popularization of vintage watches, especially vintage sports watches. Modeled after the "big crown" submariners of the 50s, with a twist, featuring the classic snowflake hands, the Black Bay 58 resonated with the vintage community extremely well. Then, just last year in 2021, Tudor wowed the watch world once again by introducing the '58 in an all-new metal. Bronze.
|Style||Black Bay 58|
|Bracelet||Tudor NATO Strap|
The 39-millimeter case is made from Tudor's highly resilient aluminum bronze alloy and takes more than 40 additional steps to build from the standard stainless steel version. The watch also features a solid bronze bezel and crown, with the bezel housing a beautiful brown insert. The bracelet of the Black Bay 58 is also solid bronze, a real rarity in the watch world. The case and bracelet are both entirely brush-finished, an effect that is simply stunning in person. The case and bracelet are in nearly unworn condition, with only minimal signs of use on the bracelet clasp. The case and bracelet do exhibit a light patina, displaying a slightly darker color to the bronze metal.
The dial is a gorgeous brown bronze with an ever-so-slight gradient, light in the center and darker at the outer edge. The hour markers are large and pronounced, a mix of circles, a triangle, and the famous 3,6,9. The latter is a feature distinct only to Tudor's bronze offerings and so the only Black Bay 58 to utilize it.
The watch comes with inner and outer boxes, tags, and warranty card. The watch is running at factory spec.
