Tudor unveils the new Black Bay Ceramic Edition “Blue”

With the new Black Bay Ceramic Edition “Blue”, Tudor now brings the motorsport-edition timepiece for the general public
Tudor announced its comeback to motorsport at the start of 2024, partnering with the newly formed Visa Cash App RB Formula One team. In honour of the event, the company launched a Black Bay Ceramic watch, a Master Chronometer certified timepiece with blue dial, that is only available to the team. Tudor is formally releasing it to the public with the Black Bay Ceramic "Blue."

Tudor has a long legacy of racing on the track, supporting winning teams during the golden era of motorsport, starting with the Tudor Watch Racing Team in the late 60’s and continuing through the recent IMSA Tudor United SportsCar Championship. In 2024, the Swiss brand was back on the grid, this time with Visa Cash App RB, a brand new Formula One team with fan-favourite drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Yuki Tsunoda behind the wheel.

The Black Bay Ceramic “Blue” has been tested by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) and is certified as a Master Chronometer. This designation, initiated by Omega in collaboration with METAS in 2015, exceeds the requirements of the COSC, and is one of the most demanding standards in the industry, including chronometry, waterproofness and resistance to magnetic fields (up to 15,000 gauss).

The new edition is powered by the MT5602-1U calibre, which is produced in collaboration with Kenissi. This automatic movement beats at 4 Hz and has a 70-hour power reserve. It comes to life through the sapphire crystal case back.

Aside from the bold blue dial, which matches the Cash App RB colour scheme and features the collection’s signature luminescent applied hour markers and “snowflake” hands, the newcomer is a stunning piece of a Black Bay Ceramic, presented in a 41mm black ceramic case with a water resistance of 200 metres. The unidirectional bezel with a 60-minute disc is also made of black ceramic.

The Black Bay Ceramic “Blue” sits on a hybrid leather and rubber strap with blue stitching and is delivered with a complimentary black fabric strap with blue centre band. Pricing is marked at ₹4,30,000 (approx.)
